    2021 car alarm ideas

    I did a search and found some older recommendations, mostly for Viper with Mikes audio and Davidís audio recommended for installation. Iím in BR area and have a new GMC Sierra. It sounds like GMs security can be defeated pretty easily, so I was looking for an aftermarket system. Any recommendations?
    (I have read that GMís OnStar, at least on older models can be easily over ridden and now thieves are using technology to relay your key fob data to open and start your car. Apparently a Faraday container for the key fob will prevent that!)

    Ignition disconnect via a toggle switch hidden under the dash,

    Other that pull the plate off and drive a Ford under it....lol Just kidding about the plate.

    I would say the chances of someone using a device to bypass your alarm in BR is very very rare. Main thing is keep valuables out of sight and keep it locked.

    Agree. I bought a console safe to help with the smash and grab. My only real concern is hunting trips out of state with my dogs. Many hotels won’t allow inside so they occasionally have to stay in the truck in kennels. I worry that I’ll walk outside in some other state and find everything gone.
    A kill switch has been mentioned in a lot of my research.

    I put a battery disconnect switch on the Kubota's, It's keyed, You can by-pass it but it takes 15 minutes or more if you know what you're looking for.

    The PTO? I engage it, Dash lights up but no juice to the starter...

    David’s CB and electronics is what they used to go by, lol.
    I rocked a Viper system in a 92 firebird formula and had good results but that was many moons ago. Ignition kill switch hidden well if you’re worried about theft of the vehicle itself and or one of the smartphone controlled alarm systems to track and or shut down the vehicle. Otherwise see Motor’s post about combatting smash and grab.
    Doesnít play well with TROLLS...

    If you are a DIY kin dof person you can order an alarm from Crutchfield and they send you a pretty comprehensive how to install guide plus if you call they can walk you through any issues you have. I used them a few times. I haven't done it lately though. I thought most newer cars used rolling codes so that people can just scan your FOB because if they did the old code would be useless.

    I think you watched gone in 60 secs one too many times. Just keep it locked, try and park in well lit areas, I wouldn't leave valuables in the console safe overnight. You can't prevent everything just mitigate.
