Introducing CarTheft Sensor

Car Theft Sensor is a new and innovative mobile software that converts your old Android mobile phone, or any new low cost Android mobile phone into a magical unjammable car anti-theft device that enables your car to safeguard itself, and ensure its own safety until you return. It comes with super-sensitive sensors that can detect car thefts, car break-ins, parking car strips, parking car accidents and smash-and-grabs, and enables your car to instantly notify you through a live phone call, allowing you to report all these car crimes to nearby security guards, police or your car recovery company in the speed of lightning.

It takes 30 to 40 seconds for a thief to have your car opened, started and rolling, and 30 minutes to remove tracking devices from your car. On the other hand, it takes Car Theft Sensor only 1 to 3 seconds to detect and notify you when someone tries to steal your car, while it now takes only 15 seconds for nearby security guards and police to intercept car crimes that occur in parking lots, and less than 5 minutes for car recovery companies to recover your stolen car, of which has never been possible before the birth of an innovation: The magical Car Theft Sensor. What does all this mean? Well, it means from now on, if your car has Car Theft Sensor, it will be utterly impossible for thieves to steal it.

Here Are Ways In Which Thieves Steal Cars That Don’t Have Car Theft Sensor.

From Your Latest VWs, Renaults, Toyotas to Range Rovers, BMWs, Mercedes Benz etc. It Has Become Far Too Easy For Thieves To Open Your Car, Get Inside, Have It Started And Rolling In Just 30 Seconds, And Some Steal It Without Even Getting Inside. Here’s How They Do It:

The Latest Tool For Car Thieves: TOW TRUCKS

There's a new way to steal cars and it's becoming popular here in South Africa. Criminals are taking advantage of a loop hole in motor-vehicle laws involving tow trucks. Police say these car thieves are using tow truck companies to illegally relocate cars.

Car Thieves Towing

Investigators say thieves unscrupulously call a Tow Truck Company to have a car picked up. They give a description of the car, the tag number and the location. Police say the tow truck drivers are then met by thieves pretending to be owners of the car, who would then pay the towing cost and take the car away. This usually happens to anyone who parks their car at the public parkings such as sideway parking lots, shopping centre parking lots, etc.


Theft of Key Cars

Hot Wiring

According to Car Throttle, in older cars that don’t have keyless entry or maybe not even any central-locking at all, thieves have a much easier time. A ‘slim jim’ is a hook and wire combination that can be used to slide down the window, through the window seal and down into the lock system within the door. A quick shimmy and a pull on the lock will see it flicked to its open position, allowing the burglar to enter your car and set about its electronics. Another method involves hammering a screwdriver into the lock mechanism until the door can be wrenched open.

OBD (On-Board Diagnostics) Port Hacking

According to Car Throttle, thieves use coding devices that can be plugged into the OBD to set about controlling the functions of your car. They get alarms disabled, doors unlocked and engines started within seconds once they have an encryption device plugged in, simulating a key entering your car’s ignition. Since the OBD ports have to be easily accessible by law so that rival car companies can check out the on-board systems, thieves use the freely-available encryption devices found online to simulate your car keys and reprogramme your car’s security settings, then they’ll have your car started and rolling within just 30 seconds.

A Classic 'Slim Jim'

With schematics of the wires that make up your car’s ignition system found in databases online, someone can find the right colour of wire to snip and set about hot wiring your car. By snipping the power wires found under the steering wheel and winding the ends together, a complete circuit is formed which will initiate the fuel pump like the first turn of the ignition. By then cutting and stripping the wires on either side of the ignition interlock, they can be touched to send current through to the starter motor to get your car running. Your much older car with worn-down ignition chambers can even be started by hammering in a flat-head screwdriver, simulating a key thus allowing your car’s engine to start through normal ignition.

Burglary

According to Wheels24, many thieves break into houses with the sole intension of stealing car keys. While Car Throttle states that the majority of car owners still seem to leave their keys out in the most convenient places, thinking that the risk of burglary is extremely low. In 2015, 90 000 cars were stolen in the UK with the vast majority being cat burglars entering households through a window, and swiping the keys from the work-top or the hall table.

Key Duplicating

According to Wheels24, some thieves may even note down the VIN and registration of your car and may unscrupulously approach a dealer to get duplicate keys made. Next is stealing your car.


Theft of Keyless Cars

Relay Box Car Theft

According to ADAC’s Spokesperson; “The radio connection between keys and car can easily be extended over 100 metres regardless of whether the original key is, for example at home or in your pocket. These devices work in pairs with one transmitter near your key fob, and the other near your car. The transmitter can work up to 100 metres away, meaning your car can be infiltrated while it’s on your drive.” The device receives a signal from your key inside and transmit it to the second box next to your car. Your car’s security system is tricked into thinking the key is present and your car unlocks, with the thieves then driving away.

Keyless Key

Car Theft Through CAN Bus System Hacking

According to Car Throttle, it is now possible for thieves to hack your car’s CAN bus system using a laptop, a satellite and a circuit board. The CAN bus system in a car is a grouping of all your car’s on-board computers where they can all talk to each other and interact to provide every function your car needs to move.

Even if those thieves may use all the car theft methods mentioned above, if your car has Car Theft Sensor there’s no one who will be able to open it and get inside without your permission, or even TOW it away without your consent. From now on wherever you decide to park your car, you’re going to find it right there, you’re no longer likely to find an empty space.

Why Most Cars With Tracking Devices Aren’t Recovered.

Subsequent to stealing your car, thieves need about 30 minutes to drive away from the crime scene and find a comfortable place to remove tracking devices from your car. As soon as they remove those tracking devices from your car, your car tracking company and the police will no longer be able to trace it, meaning that your car will be gone for good, and there’ll be no finding it.

Nevertheless, if your car has got Car Theft Sensor, you can breathe a sigh of relief because 30 seconds is more than enough for the nearby security guards, police and your car tracking company to catch thieves in the act of stealing your car.

What Happens To Your Car After Being Stolen?

Other than writing your own car off, there surely cannot be a worse feeling than having your car stolen from under your nose. You’ve poured your blood, sweat and a tonne of cash into your own little source of automotive joy and yet someone thinks they have the right to take it from you in a malicious criminal act. Below are things Criminals Do with Your Car.

Thieves steal your car to carry out robberies.

Cars are stolen to be used in other crimes such as Cash-In-Transit Heist, Bank Robbery and Drug Dealing as getaway cars or as sacrifice if thieves are stopped by the police. When they are finished they either abandon the car somewhere, or they torch it (set it on fire) to prevent evidence from being gathered from it.
