Everyone knows it: You go where you think you have parked your car and it's gone. At first a shock, until it occurs to you that it is somewhere else. Everything went well again. But have that luck can not be all. Unfortunately, there are more cars in Germany gestohlen. Especially high quality vehicles with Keyless system can be done in seconds crack digitally and drive away. Before the theft is noticed, the vehicle is abroad and is dismantled into its individual parts. A nightmare for owners of a high quality car. Sure, the insurance may cover the theft, but it can often ask unpleasant questions "What has been done to prevent theft?"Or"Was the vehicle locked?“And yourself refuse to pay.
Prevent theft with an alarm system
Particularly tuned vehicles are not only worth a lot, there is a lot of emotion in them. While some vehicles have Alarm systems are equipped, they usually bring very little. As soon as the vehicle starts, the alarm system is deactivated. But who is a clearly visible Fake alarm system buys can thieves in advance maybe scare off. Much like homeowners who keep a large dog, are often spared thieves. Why would a car thief bother to mess with an alarm system that obviously? cannot be deactivated? After all, cars are a dime a dozen.
Advantages and disadvantages of a (fake) alarm system
The advantage is a low price and in relation to this a high benefit. For a few euros you get a flashing device, which the impression an alarm system. The downside is that there is no real protection. If the thief overlooks the alarm system or recognizes it as a fake, he may even have one more item that he can sell after the theft. It also fits none Fake alarm system so right into the look of the interior. But the alarm system is optical gut gemacht can it be of use. Example:
- If the thief is standing at the vehicle and would like to open it using a software tool / laptop etc. and the fake alarm system just keeps flashing, despite all the supposed secret codes and key combinations, he will possibly not get in the vehicle because he thinks his software is the alarm system do not deactivate to be able to.
Admittedly, car thieves are usually very knowledgeable and knowledgeable about them factory alarm systems or over Systems for retrofitting informed. Auto-alarm dummies usually also see this very well Complaint out. A small chance it is, however, if a real alarm system is simply too expensive to retrofit.
The alternative - a real alarm system!
A real alarm system is of course much more useful. And if the car still has a certain object value, then it should retrofitting There is actually nothing to oppose one financially. Because let's be honest, we take hundreds to thousands of euros for Rims, spoilers, leather covers, chip tuning, exhaust systems, sound systems etc. in hand. Then why stingy with security? There are some for a few hundred euros for less than EUR 200, Alarm systems with immobilizer or GPS tracker. If the latter is hidden, the thief has no chance. Even if he takes the vehicle abroad, the police often have the opportunity to record a tracked vehicle across Europe.
Make sense of an alarm system
An alarm system does not make sense for every car. For example, if you have an extremely tuned, orange Polo 6N with black rally stripes, what feels like 300 PS (actual 75 PS) and the obligatory 5.000 watt "Bassman", this is natural priceless, at least for the owner. However, there is a very high recognition value here and, Polo driver will forgive us, only a very low sales value if you disassemble it into its individual parts. A real alarm system makes little sense for a car like this. But if you have a brand new one Audi RS6 in black, it is rather inconspicuous, but at the same time very lucrative, and therefore an even more attractive target for thieves. And such a vehicle does not have to have an alarm system ex works be equipped. An immobilizer, yes, but an alarm system has long been no standard yet. Not even in expensive cars.
identical principle for immobilizers
By the way, you can also completely apply the topic to the immobilizer. Here too is a real component Of course, preferable to a fake variant. But here, too, a mock-up might have a small effect. At the end of the 90s, for example, there was a hint of an electronic immobilizer in the form of an electronic immobilizer somewhere on the vehicle window sticker to attach. Or you have a clearly visible Fake boxes with numbers installed in the vehicle. Almost always these were just dummies, but at the time fake protection could definitely be used for itself. So if your wallet is very limited, then it is worth a try.
