Here at WSS Westminster Speed & Sound, we installed our first automotive security system in September of 1990, so we have been around this category a long time. A lot has changed over the decades. Most vehicles now come with a factory installed security system. While these systems are definitely better than having nothing at all, they are not in the same league as a good quality aftermarket security system.
Aftermarket Security Systems Offer MoreOn an aftermarket security system we have many different sensor options available that can detect tampering of your vehicle. One popular sensor can even detect the vehicle being lifted as little as 1 degree. This is helpful in preventing someone stealing your wheels or towing the car as it will set off your alarm, alerting you of a problem. Speaking of being alerted, we have systems that are a two-way design where the vehicle actually communicates with the remote control. It will confirm back to you of any command that you request, plus if someone tampers with the vehicle and sets off the alarm you will be alerted. We also have systems that integrate with your Android or iPhone and will alert you of tampering, plus allow you to locate and even track your vehicle. If someone does manage to steal your vehicle you can track it so the authorities can recover it for you. On a final note, we have lots of add-ons for our security systems. Here are some of the popular options:
- Remote Start
- Power window control
- Interior radar or motion sensors. These are great for convertibles & targa tops
- Adding power door locks or windows to manually controlled vehicles
- GPS tracking
