So, without further wasting any time, let us get started.
What is an anti-theft system?
An anti-theft system or you can call it a vehicle alarm, is a type of device or a method that prevents unauthorized access to your vehicle may it be a two-wheeler or a four-wheeler. That is why manufacturers fit such a device to prevent the vehicle from being used by an unauthorized person. The anti-theft system includes devices such as locks and keys, siren/buzzer, wireless transmitter, local alarms, sensors, a global positioning system (GPS), starter disablers and, GPS locators.
How does an Anti-theft system work?
The anti-theft system works with the help of the sensors which are installed on both inside and outside the vehicle, which are activated by any kind of movement or impact. After the sensors are impacted, this triggers the anti-theft alarm system and sounds the alarm. The same happens for both two-wheelers and four-wheelers. The alarm is raised which notifies the owner or the people around. It is also better to go for factory-fitted anti-theft system as they function better and also have a better life. Bike anti-theft systems are available for two-wheelers for anywhere around ₹500-₹1000 after- market.
