An Introduction to the different types of Car Anti-Theft Systems

Cars are expensive items and probably one of the most stolen possessions around the world. If you think about it, you realize that it’s possible. Stolen cars are either sold as a whole or piece by piece. Sometimes stripping the car and selling individual pieces is more profitable and somewhat untraceable.

In case of car theft the best bet is good old common sense, but there are no guarantees you’re your car won’t be stolen even if you have a really good car anti-theft system. However, this is no reason to do something drastic like locking away your car in a storage unit or garage. Instead you should think about investing in a car anti-theft device.

Kill switch:

Kill switches work by disabling the vehicle’s electrical system that powers the ignition and other things crucial for startup. Many modern models are factory fitted with kill switches. But even if you don’t have this kind of car anti-theft system you can easily buy an aftermarket system and have it installed by an expert. I recommend hiring an expert because they know what they are doing, and you might mess up the electrical system if you try doing it yourself.

Steering-wheel lock:

This car anti-theft system comprises a solid hardened steel bar with a lock that is fitted over the steering wheel of a vehicle rendering it immovable. This device is actually quite effective.  I’d recommend getting a high quality steering lock as they are difficult to cut or tamper with.

Chassis Number Branding:

A chassis number is a unique serial number allotted by auto companies to their vehicles for identification purposes.  This number can be found anywhere from the under the vehicle’s bonnet to the dashboard or on individual parts.    You can brand or etch your chassis number on important parts of the vehicle, such as windshield, battery, etc. This ensures that thieves cannot sell off individual parts of your vehicle.

Etching chassis numbers can either done by a professional or you can try it yourself by using easily available DIY kits.

Car Alarms:

Alarms in general are effective theft deterrents and also double as car anti-theft systems. They are good at attracting attention, be it a vehicle or a building. Car alarms are connected to a vehicle’s battery and have a couple of sensors, ranging from vibration to proximity that detect movement and sound the alarm when someone tries to tamper with the vehicle. Car alarms have a major vulnerability that is they can be disabled. Tech savvy thieves know what they are doing and have ways to disable and bypass the system.  To prevent this from happening install a backup battery so that even if thieves cut the wires the alarm won’t be disabled.

Central Locking Systems

Central locking system is an electronic lock for a vehicle. The system grants access to the vehicle’s doors. The system only grants access to the authorized person(s) that have a remote. The remote uses radio waves to lock and unlock the doors.

Central locking systems offer the comfort and convenience of gaining access to the car with a remote, while acting as a car anti-theft system. Because a physical key is not turned in a lock, the locks cannot be picked. Also there is no contact between key and vehicle as the system operates using radio waves.

Tire Locks:

Tire locks are similar to those heavy locks that police and other law enforcement agencies use to keep vehicles immobile. A heavy cup or disk covers the outside of the tire and prevent it from moving.  These devices may not be the best option if you drive your car on a regular basis. Tire locks are visible but very sturdy and hard to crack.

Gear Shift Lock

Gear shift locks work by mechanically disabling the lever that is used to shift gears on a vehicle. The car anti-theft device locks the gear shift lever in the park or neutral position. The device is similar to a steering wheel lock but smaller in size. This is a primitive form of car anti-theft system that is quite effective but only solves a part of the problem.

Immobilizer systems

An engine immobilizer is perhaps the best and most state of art car anti-theft system on the market. The system disables engine startup if an unauthorized key is used. When the user inserts a key, with the transponder or tracker, into the ignition it transmits a code to the immobilizer device. If the code matches the one stored in the immobilizer then the engine will start.  Immobilizer systems such as our very own device, Smart Cop also give protection against hotwiring. Hotwiring is the act when someone tries to start the vehicle by connecting or shorting out respective wires under the steering wheel.

Vehicle tracking system:

Vehicle trackers track the movements and location of a car and either informs the owner, in case of tracking companies, or some systems let the owner monitor the vehicle using their PCs or smartphones. The most famous tracker is LoJack. The services they provide are top notch but take a toll on your wallet. There are other cheaper alternatives. Air Start is one of these affordable car anti-theft systems that let you track your car using your smartphone via Google Maps.

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.

Smart Cop, the anti-theft system you can count on.

Car Security systems come in many shapes, sizes and with a whole bunch of different features. Some are just alarms that will go off the moments someone tries to open a vehicle’s door or breaks a window. Most of these alarms detect motion or sense vibration on a vehicle’s body and resultantly sound an alarm to alert the driver or just to get attention.

Nevertheless, these alarm systems are only useful if your car is parked in a crowded area. In a secluded or deserted parking spot, there is no one to hear the alarm. Moreover, experienced thieves have found ingenious ways to disable alarm systems.  A simple wire cutter can be used to sever connections to the alarm module and voila, the system is disabled.

Then there are security systems that have keyless entry, a car tracking feature and remote start functionality.  The third kind of security system is very different from all the rest I mentioned above. These security systems neither have an alarm nor support keyless entry. It is called an immobilizer. Smart cop is an immobilizer system and it does just what the name suggests. It immobilizes a vehicle by disabling the ignition and the fuel pump.

Most car owners ask why they need an immobilizer or any vehicle security system for that matter. The answer is very simple, cars are very expensive. Many people invest their savings into buying their favorite Honda or Toyota. Similar to any high priced item or asset, this brings with it the fear of theft.

But car owners are in luck because Smart Cop has the answer to all their security problems.

What is Smart Cop?

Smart Cop is a concealed vehicle anti-theft system, also known as an immobilizer. It works by disabling the modules necessary for starting the engine, such as the ignition system and the fuel pump.   As you can image starting a car without the ignition controls and the fuel pump is extremely difficult.

In short, even if thieves force their way into said vehicle they will not be able to drive off.

How does Smart Cop work?

This kind of systems will not start the engine unless an authorized key or, in case of a keyless entry system, a smart key is present. Without a proper key, the ignition system will not work and furthermore, power to the fuel pump is cut off completely.

In simple words an attempt to start a car without a key will result in complete systems shut down. Forget about thieves trying to hotwire your vehicle that has smart cop installed. We can assure you that any attempts made to bypass the system or rewiring it will result in complete immobilization.

Delta Smart Cop

Smart Cop is small in Size.

When it comes to immobilizer systems, bigger is not always better.  Large and bulky systems cannot be hidden away or concealed. And if these kinds of devices are not concealed, then an experienced car thief can easily open them up and bypass the circuits or reverse them to gain control of the vehicle. Sure, amateur thieves still won’t be able to make sense of anything if they encounter an anti-theft system, but experienced and tech savvy car thieves are another problem entirely. Keeping this in mind, Smart Cop has been created with size as a major factor.  Its compact size enables it to be easily concealed inside a vehicle. Imagine a thief’s frustration and anger when they break in your car and can’t start it, furthermore their day just got a lot worse.

Smart Cop is Silent but effective.

You don’t need an alarm or a central locking system to protect your car. All these systems ever do is just sound an alarm or lock the doors. It is like bells and whistles on a wheel chair. It is unnecessary and a waste of money. These systems can also be disabled easily. Smart Cop is different it is like a ninja, protecting your car silently. This system will not even let you know that it is there. There are no beeps, thuds or clicking sounds. Not even a flashing light on vehicle’s dashboard. It is always there protecting you vehicle.

Smart Cop is compatible with a range of vehicles

Another plus point about this system is that it is compatible with all kinds of vehicles any regardless of the model, make or brand. The only requirement is that it should be equipped with a 12V to 24V DC battery.

Smart Cop is easy to install

Most owners love their cars and want no one messing with them. These people are called ‘do it yourselfers’. We have good news for all these do it yourselfers around the globe, smart cop is very easy to install. It comes with clear and easy to understand instructions and diagrams. The package consists of the device and a couple of wires.

Smart Cop is made of strong materials

Many immobilizer devices 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. A Thief can easily bypass the system or rewire the circuits to activate the ignition and the fuel pump.    This is where Smart Cop is superior to similar systems. One look at it and the buyer assumes that it is delicate and easy to break into, but do not be alarmed. The sturdy materials that go into creating smart cop make it a formidable addition to your vehicle.

Benefits of a Car Tracking System

Most cars are equipped with fancy security systems these days, but assuring security for our vehicles is one heck of a job for the common car or motorbike owner. There are scores of vehicle security systems available but not all of them work.

The most common vehicle security systems are simple electronic devices that pick up vibrations or other activity on the outside of your car, and if someone tries to mess with it, sound an alarm to alert the owner. While these devices or systems are useful if your car is parked in crowded areas, but utterly useless when you’ve parked your car or motorcycle in a secluded area.

The biggest problem with these alarm/security systems is that they are super easy to disable. Thieves equipped with a simple wire cutter can easily steal your car. Cutting power to the alarm system results in restoring power to the ignition and voilà, the so-called vehicle security system is disabled. You can kiss your expensive car goodbye.

Behold, Delta Smart Cop a state-of-the-art anti-theft system.
