Why choose a car anti-theft system?

Chances are that by the time you finish reading this, someone’s car has been stolen. This is not an exaggeration. Car theft has become very common, with thieves using technology to their benefit. While there is no guarantees that your vehicle won’t be stolen, there are some steps that you can take to make it more secure, and harder to steal. Installing a car anti-theft system is one of these steps.

Car anti-theft systems come in many shapes and sizes, from alarm systems to vehicle immobilizers. Alarm systems are good for attracting attention, but are useless in crowded areas and can be easily disabled. Then there are central locking systems, which are similar to keyless entry systems.

By far, the most effective car anti-theft system is the immobilizer.  An immobilizer is an electronic lock device which prevents the engine from starting if an incorrect key is used.

A basic understanding of this system is that a vehicle’s engine has different parts or modules which need to be activated in order to start, the immobilizer cuts power to these system. Without power these systems will not function and the car won’t start. I won’t explain, at length, how the system works because that would make it easier for car thieves to disable it or hack it.

Vehicle owners need not worry because Smart Key has the answer to their problems. Enter, Smart Cop, our car anti-theft system.

It is easy to conceal inside a vehicle.

When it comes to getting this kind of system for your vehicle, a bigger device is not always a good idea. This is one of those situations when bigger is not always better. The reason behind this is that a bigger system is easy to locate and disable. Bigger devices don’t conceal very well and this is where the main problem arises.  A more experienced thief can easily open up a large and bulky device, and easily bypass the circuits, gaining control of the vehicle.

Smart Cop is small in size and because of this it can be concealed very easily inside your car.

It makes no noise.

A good car anti-theft system won’t even let you know that it is doing its job. It is silent. An alarm system, as the name suggests, is useful when someone tries to mess with or enter your car. A central locking system on the other hand locks the vehicle’s doors, but it is useless if the thieves break inside you precious corolla. Both of these systems are unnecessary if you have an immobilizer or a car anti-theft system. The system makes no beeps, thuds, horn or any clicking sounds.

The system is always present, always working to protect your car against the most experienced of car thieves.

Compatible with all kinds of vehicles

I can understand the frustration when you buy an aftermarket system and it does not fit inside your car, all that money is going to be wasted. Being able to fit easily is the biggest reason behind smart cop’s universal compatibility.

Our system is unique because it can work just as easily on a motor cycle as it can on a car or even a truck. It is compatible with a range of different vehicles. Most systems are only compatible with certain brands. Smart Cop can easily be installed in any kind of vehicle, the only requirement being that the vehicle should be equipped with a 12V to 24V DC battery.

Smart Cop is made of strong materials

The outer casing is perhaps the most important point to keep in mind before buying an immobilizer. The outer shell is the first layer of security and if this fails, the system is fairly easy to disable.  Many car anti-theft systems boast advanced features and anti-theft security measures, but lack in the most crucial area which is the outer casing.  Without a strong and inaccessible outer casing, the inner circuitry is very easy to get to. This is where Smart Cop is superior to similar systems.  At a glance smart cop looks like any ordinary system, but it is so much more than that.
