Default Alarm system for car?>

My car was broken into again for the 2nd straight week. Last time they didn't steal anything, this time they just stole change, even though I have 2 CD binders, 2 palm pilots, DHP powrtuner (no laptop) there.

Factory alarm does not go off over a smashed window I guess, Any suggestions here? I want to beat these fuckers with a baseball bat.

Viper alarm with 2 way remote, and a backup battery in case they snip the battery cable, and maybe a backup siren. Personally I'd go with anything made by http://www.directed.com

Also I heard good stuff about Compustar and and Bulldog Security(cheap DIY alarms).

If they're not opening doors or turning on interior lamps to trigger your alarm then there's no point in getting another alarm that doesn't have a glass break sensor or perimeter sensor.

You want an alarm with an adjustable perimeter sensor- so between peeking in and breaking a window/trying something there will be a warning chirp to let them know the alarm knows they're there and is about to go off.

alarms suck, nobody cares that they are going off, and they wouldnt stop anybody from breaking into a car if they really wanted. you are better off saving money and buying a place that you can store your car in a garage... or getting some type of camera hooked up to a DVR so you can catch anybody that tries to mess with your car

Alarms do nothing.....especially if you live in a bad area where they prolly go off all the time.

Garage it or a camera are your best options.

Unless you can talk to the cops to see if they will patrol your area better

I have the Scosche SC2W900FMR. Its the 2nd unit I've put on my cars. My brother has one along with a ton of my friends. This system is LOUD. And when it goes off, it pages the controller on your keyring.

I'm not sure who the Scosche dealer is in the Chicago area, but make some calls and check it out.
