Car Alarm Sensors

Each auto alarm system functions differently based on the specific sensors that they include. There are three main types of auto alarm sensors that you will commonly find in vehicles.

These are the three types of sensors in car alarms:

Shock Sensor Monitors

When you hear a car siren going off at random hours of the night, chances are that it is due to shock sensors. These sensors sense if someone moves, jolts, or bumps into your car with a bit of force, it then functions based on the force that it senses. The harder your car is hit, the louder, more severe the warning sound or brain signals will be.

Door and Window Sensor Monitors

Car door sensors as well as sensors on windows function by monitoring the amount of voltage that is being sent throughout the vehicle. When the level of voltage drops, it is recognized by the sensors, causing a car light to turn on. When paired with another type of sensor monitor, it sends a message to the main indicator of the alarm system. Basically, if a potential car thief tries to open your car door, it sets the alarm off. These are the most basic type of sensors in cars, and they are present in every car alarm system. If a vehicle window is broken, the computer component in the alarm system recognizes the sound of shattering glass, and it will react to that sound by setting off the alarm sound.

Voltage Sensors

All the basic car alarms use a voltage sensor to figure out when a car burglar attempt is made. It does this by monitoring the static voltage of the vehicle’s electrical system. When there is a decrease in the voltage, like when a door or trunk is opened and the car lights turn on or when the car’s power is cut, the car alarm system is sounded. 

Car Alarm Repairs
