Car Alarms have become a necessity to keep your car protected 24/7. Whether you have a nice stereo installed, leave expensive equipment or electronics in the car, or are flat our worried that your car might be at risk of being stolen - you need a comprehensive car alarm to both protect your vehicle (and what's inside), as well as keep you informed in a moment's notice if something does happening to your car.
Today's car alarms have come a long way since the early motion detection and door lock alarms. They have sensors placed all around the car to monitor several things. From a door opening or window breaking to paint damage and tire jacking, great alarm systems will alert you in real time with detailed messages and displays that will show you exactly what is happening to your car. The higher quality alarms will incorporate satellite features will not only protect your car from damage and theft (and notify you in real time what's happening), they will also enable smartphone applications to connect directly with your car and give you the option to start your car before you walk out in the cold/hot weather.
