A car alarm system is one of the most common vehicle security system in Kenya. The main purpose of a car alarm is to prevent the theft of your personal belongings within the vehicle and to prevent the theft of the vehicle itself. That said, not all car alarms are the same. Some are triggered by different actions and have different features.

A basic car alarm is made of up many components, but the most important parts you should keep in mind are the sensors, the siren, and the control unit. An aftermarket car alarm is wired into your vehicle by a professional installer who connects the door, shock, and any other sensors you need to the control unit. The control module is what sends the signal to the siren to alert you (and the neighborhood) that someone is tampering with your car.
