Lojack Car Alarms Aid Stolen Vehicle Recovery

There is one vehicle alarm company with a system integrated into the police computer systems and Lojack car alarms have helped recover over 100,000 stolen vehicles. It is the unique combination of a vehicle alarm system that is activated when a stolen vehicle report is entered into a police computer and the signal detection system in police cars and aerial units that help in the stolen vehicle recovery.

With Lojack car alarms, the vehicle has up to 20 small radio frequencies transmitters installed in the vehicle. Each vehicle’s transmitters are programmed with a code specific to the vehicle’s vehicle identification number and when the VIN number is entered into the police computer as stolen, the radio frequency transmitters are automatically activated and emit an inaudible signal, picked up by Lojack car alarms receivers in police cruisers.

Working similarly to a GPS system, the police units can pinpoint the location of the stolen vehicle and affect a rapid recovery. The Lojack car alarms’ receivers in the police vehicles are constantly listening for a signal and once activated, they signal the police that a stolen car has been located and give them the location.

Save Money On Insurance Costs

Depending on where you live, vehicles equipped with functioning Lojack car alarms may be eligible for discounts on vehicle insurance. Many states offer a 25 percent savings while some states, such as Texas, may offer savings up to 30 percent off your vehicle insurance premium.

Lojack car alarms supplies the computers used in tracking stolen vehicles to the police departments, local and state, where other companies track the vehicles and then supply the location to the police. With Lojack car alarms, your vehicle theft recovery system is tied right into the law enforcement agencies.

One of the main advantages of Lojack car alarms is that the signal does not require a direct line of sight signal to be picked up, nor does it have any external antenna, which may be visible, and removed, by a car thief. Many companies rely on satellite GPS for vehicle location, which will not be available if the car is parked in an underground garage on under concrete and steel barrier.

Lojack car alarms worked through concrete and steel walls, ceilings and other barriers and give direct notification to the police departments. The signal telling the police computers where the car is located also does not require and antenna. Vehicle owners will not know where the transmitters are located so the odds of a thief finding them all and disabling them are extremely slim.
