How Automobile Security Works | C & S Locksmiths

Throughout the history of the automobile industry the security for cars has changed and evolved right alongside the evolution of new auto body styles and increasing technological advances.

Initially the locking and security systems of automobiles operated under the traditional lock and turn-key method. As technology advanced cars started coming from factories with keyless entry or key fob systems pre-installed.

To gain access to a car one is not able to open doors with any common radio signal, the key fob associated with one’s vehicle sends specific waves that work in conjunction with one another.

Moreover a key fob uses a computer chip that creates a unique code that is sent to the related car’s security system. Additionally a car that uses a key fob system will have a chip which uses correlated codes to maintain access control; if the key fob chip code matches up the car will open.

For the highest security it is always recommended to keep all of your car doors locked and all windows rolled up when not in use. Some criminals will go to great lengths to gain access to a vehicle and some have access to technologies which attempt to replicate your cars key fob signal. To best defend against these modern day tech-savvy criminals always be aware of your surroundings when parking your car and if you want to be extra cautious you can invest in a signal-blocking pouch to hold your keys in.

Additionally it is best recommended to consult a local lock and security expert to determine the level of access control that is appropriate for you and your car. If located in the Tucson area contact the Lock and Security experts at C & S Lock & Security!
