Re: Alarms

It really depends on how far you want to go...300 -1100 dollars for most budgets..

Re: Alarms

I'd always imagined a car is more at risk on the street than in the driveway, but you do make a good point there...
I'm also in the market. An alarm that will go off when someone's actually trying to steal my car/something in my car, but not when the garbage truck drives by at 5am. Is the sensitivity soley down to the setup/installation of a system, or does it depend on the system itself? (obviously the number/placement of sensors will make the biggest difference, but with a typical installation)

Re: Alarms

I have an Rhina RA Alarm, excellent alarm. However, in the end, it is all in the installation which will set you back around $250 depending on the alarm and what you want to be intergrated.

GOOD ON YOU LATER!

Re: Alarms

The sensitivity of the alarm is set by the installer.If a criminal is really keen on taking your wheels he will try even with the alarm going.

You can set the shock sensor to go off when windows are hit.However if a big truck goes past it will go off.But I mean a big truck...

Re: Alarms

Yeah a friend came to visit a while ago and they had an alarm system installed although I think it may have been too sensitive. The day they visited it was quite windy and the bloody thing kept chirping like a loud budgie.

Best advice ever given" DON'T PLAY WITH IT...OR IT'LL FALL OFF"
