Ntv7 Breakfast Show On Car Security Issues
Posted 18 February 2013 - 02:38 PM
I was told that no specifics would be given on how to disarm car alarms for obvious reasons (just the generalities).
Would be most interested to watch it.

They consulted one security firm (T*k*shim*y*) on the car security demo. They used two local cars: one Proton and one Perodua. They disabled the car alarm in 20 seconds. They also mentioned different cars require different techniques to break into the cars. They mentioned high risk areas of car theft are:
- unattended parking lots
- road sides
- LRT stations
I think at the end, the message is not to depend on our stock/OEM alarm but to upgrade it so it covers more features. Note: those cars they demo did not have immobilizers.
ntv7 copied-and-pasted some car security charts from several sites (including my blog at:
Blog on review of car security systems
) in their research, but it is a shame they didn't cite the sources which is actually unethical.
Anyway, nothing new that I haven't heard, but it was interesting nonetheless.
