Car theft prevention on the Brisbane
Car theft is a significant concern for many car owners on the Brisbane, especially those who own classic cars or older vehicles. Fortunately, there are several aftermarket car alarm and immobiliser options available that can help prevent car theft and provide peace of mind. We can sell and install the best car security systems available.

 

Buying aftermarket car alarms Brisbane
Firstly, let’s define what an aftermarket car alarm and immobiliser is. An aftermarket car alarm is a security system that alerts the owner and surrounding individuals of any unauthorised attempts to enter or steal the vehicle. An immobiliser, on the other hand, prevents the car from starting unless the correct key is used. Installing both an alarm and immobiliser on the Brisbane can provide extra layers of security for your vehicle.

 

Types of alarms to choose from
Now, let’s look at the different types of car security systems available. There are many options to choose from, including GPS tracking systems, anti-theft alarms, and kill switches. GPS tracking systems can locate the vehicle if it is stolen and can be monitored remotely. Anti-theft alarms are designed to deter thieves from attempting to steal the vehicle, and kill switches cut off the power supply to the car, preventing it from starting.

 

What’s the best car alarm to install?
When it comes to choosing the best car alarm system for your classic car, older vehicle or any vehicle for that matter, it is important to consider the features that will benefit you the most. For example, if you live in an area with a high rate of car theft, a GPS tracking system may be the best option. If you have an older car that does not have a lot of technology, a simple anti-theft alarm or kill switch may be sufficient.

 

Getting installation on the Brisbane
Aftermarket car alarm and immobiliser installation on the Brisbane can be a complex process, and it is recommended that you hire an experienced alarm specialist or installer. Many car alarm fitters offer mobile installations, meaning that they will come to your location to install the system. When searching for an “alarm specialist near me,” be sure to choose one with a good reputation and positive customer reviews.

 

The costs of car alarm installation on the Brisbane.
As for the cost of alarm installation on the Brisbane, prices vary depending on the type of system you choose and the complexity of the installation. Some companies may offer a bundle deal for both alarm and immobiliser installation, while others may charge separately. Be sure to get a quote from the installer before agreeing to the installation.

Passive arming car immobilisers installer Brisbane

Stand alone or factory upgrade immobiliser installations on the Brisbane

The most basic form of theft protection device for a classic car is a passive arming immobiliser. It is the modern version of a ‘kill switch’ but these days it is a lightweight tag or key that you take with you. As soon as you move away from the vehicle it is immobilised making it difficult to operate without a key. 

This type of car immobiliser installation means an electronic security device is fitted to a motor vehicle to prevent an engine from running unless the correct key is present. It reduces the chance of a vehicle being “hot wired” after entry has been achieved and thus reduces motor vehicle theft.

The non-intrusive nature of this type of car immobiliser system is excellent for classic car restorations that need to maintain a factory look and can’t have items installed on a dash, steering column or door. It is often considered to be the best alarm system for classic cars in Australia.

Car alarm with gps tracking installation Brisbane

GPS tracking for classic or vintage cars to protect them from thieves

If you are old enough you’ll remember Knight Rider and KITT that had all the technology in the world including a GPS tracker that was installed. Well these days smartphones can provide just as much functionality and they can be used to track your vehicle using GPS in the case that it is stolen (but it won’t drive itself back to you like KITT… yet) 

There really isn’t such a thing as the best car alarm with GPS tracking in Australia because there are so many different products available that are always changing, so the technology improves constantly. We can help you choose the right one though and get it fitted.

We can install different types of GPS vehicle tracking systems on the Brisbane & there are many models that can compliment a car alarm installation including the ability to provide live tracking. By knowing where your vehicle is and receiving an alert it makes it easy for authorities to relocate quickly.

A classic car GPS tracker device is the perfect solution for classic car collectors of rare vehicles when you consider their value & the fact that many simply can’t be replaced. It is the highest level of deterrent available for an owner and one of the best automotive security products you can buy for older vehicles, a security system that can be used with your mobile phone. Vehicle GPS tracker installation can be done at your home or your office.

The GPS vehicle tracking devices that we install have a very low standby current of 12.5 mA and ultra sleep mode 2.5 mA. They are fully featured tracking units that can compliment an alarm. In fact these GPS trackers can be installed on a vehicle, motor bike or truck to provide crystal clear real time tracking details. This is the best anti theft device for classic cars.

 

Depending on the model & specification of your set up, they can provide functions that include;

  • Tele-cutoff for the starter motor.
  • Geo-fence zones
  • Overspeed warning
  • Towing, battery and disconnection alerts.
 

 

They have three programmable outputs and three inputs for easy integration with the range of car alarms that we also sell and install as a car alarm supplier. You can create the best car alarm for a classic car by installing a complete security system that has immobilisation, alarm and GPS car alarm tracking.

 

You can easily check the location of the vehicle using an app on your phone with the option to immobilise the vehicle. There is also a paid option available to get live tracking where you can see the vehicle moving on a virtual map as well as 60 days of history as well as other reporting functionality. These added tools make it a good choice for a business managing a fleet of vehicles too.

 

It is a massive upgrade from a simple kill switch and the preferred classic car alarm system set up.

Alarms for classic, muscle or sports cars

In the world of cars and machines on four wheels, classic cars are considered the most valuable. Owners spend a lot of time and a real money on their maintenance, which makes them a very popular target for car thieves who are usually focused on car parts that they can sell quickly. Since it is extremely difficult to replace those parts, let alone the vehicles themselves, if they do get stolen, it is highly likely they won’t be seen again which is why so many people look for a car alarm installer on the Brisbane. It is critically important to take proper security measures to avoid losing your pride and joy. Classic Car Security has various ways to ensure maximum protection for your classic or collectable cars.

Car Alarms are considered to be the most popular car theft-deterrent system and are used to alert car owners if any bad guys are trying to get access into their vehicles. Modern vehicles usually have a factory Alarm system fitted by the manufacturer. Classic Cars, on the other hand, most do not have any security devices fitted as standard and thus remain unprotected. And the more a classic car ages, the more it is at risk for car theft.

It is therefore, important to secure your ride with a high-quality aftermarket Security System and keep it closely monitored at all times. The fact is, however, that Classic Car owners often don’t want to spoil the authentic look of their classic vehicle by a non-genuine flashing light. This can be solved by installing the Alarm unit’s LED to a more discreet place so that the light is not obvious or can only be visible at night. Since people have become numb to Car Alarm sirens due to a large number of triggered alarms, Car Alarms are rarely considered a potential threat and thus rarely reported to the Police. For this reason, it is essential to choose a good-quality aftermarket Alarm that enables notifying to a mobile phone via a text message from your Tracking device.

If you would like to ensure the best protection for your Classic Car, make sure to get a good quality GPS Tracking device. Not only will it show a real-time location of your vehicle, but it will also alert you in case someone is trying to tamper with your vehicle. Modern GPS Trackers actually come with the advanced notification system that provides real-time mobile notifications if any unusual event is detected on or near the vehicle. While for budget restricted applications an Immobiliser is a great start.
