Security Alarm Systems and Remote Starters

If you’re concerned about the security of your vehicle, you may want to consider adding a remote controlled alarm system for an added measure of protection. Many alar systems also offer convenience features that aren’t offered in alarm systems included from the car maker.

A basic security system includes a remote control or a smart phone app, which you can use to turn on and off the security system from outside the car and also includes sensors to indicate if a door, the hood or the trunk has been opened while you’ve been away. Additional sensors can detect attempts to break the glass or to move the car. If any of these events are detected, the alarm system will sound a loud siren to call attention to the break-in attempt and will render the vehicle inoperable while the siren is sounding.  Some systems include 2-way communication to alert you to the attempt through the remote control or smartphone app.

In the even that your car is stolen, an alarm system working in conjunction with a GPS tracking system can help the police locate and retrieve the car. Your insurance company may give you a break on your premiums if one of these devices is installed in your car.

In addition to enhanced security, alarm systems offer several useful convenience features.  Remote door and trunk unlocking are common convenience features. A remote starter will allow you to start the car so the air conditioner or heater can cool or heat the interior before you arrive. When the car is started remotely, the security system is still active, so even though the car is running, security isn’t compromised. These features can be activated using a remote control or even a smartphone app.

If your car includes a security system installed at the factory, you may be able to add features like remote start to the factory alarm system. Many new security systems are designed to integrate with the factory alarm system to provide additional sensors for enhanced security and additional convenience features, too.

I tried to put in my own car stereo, Crutchfield made it seem easy! I bought $400 worth of stuff from them, and tried to install it myself. It was only after one of the $110 dollar tweeters blew, and the stereo started to sound like a kazoo, that I realized, " I don't know crap about car stereo." So, after riding around for a couple days with only the right side speakers playing, because the left tweeter was blown and unlistenable, I stopped into Long Radio. I moved up to western MA about 10 years ago. I had always heard that Long Radio was the place to go. I stopped at the West Springfield store, which is across the street from where I work. I spoke with Aaron, and after about five minutes, I realized this young man knows! He showed me what he would do, and in 20 min, I had all the parts picked, and had scheduled an appointment for install. The total price wasn't cheap, or inexpensive. Good news...totally worth every penny! Aaron, and the guys in service, are so professional and good at what they do, that spending $2,600, over 6 times what I paid for the Crutchfield stuff, seems like a great deal, given what my stereo sounds like now, and that I have hands free voice, pandora, xm and bluetooth, where before I had am/fm/cd. Spending the money on the stereo has made me realize I never needed a new car, just a stereo! I am very grateful that I chose Aaron and Long Radio to do my car stereo. We all need "guys" to help us. You know, " I got a guy who..." I have found the guys who do car stereo right! I plan on having some other stuff done, but right now, I am just really enjoying listening to a finely tuned car stereo system! Best to you all at Long! Happy Holidays! Most Sincerely, David N. Goss
