Car alarms are not effective in preventing Your Vehicle from being stolen.

  • The nonprofit Highway Data Loss Institute concluded car alarms "show no overall reduction in theft losses" compared to cars without alarms. (source New York Times).
Why are car alarm systems ineffective?
  1. They are ignored by almost everyone.
  2. Car thieves can defeat them very quickly.
  3. Many alarms are vulnerable to code-scanning boxes & code-grabbing technology

A car alarm doesn't even protect the contents of your vehicle.

  • A smash-and-grab thief will break your car window or force the door open, quickly grab what he wants and disappear. It happens too fast.

The Ravelco anti-theft device has no bells or sirens.

Just good, solid antitheft.

Antitheft Guide - Car Alarms Vs. Ravelco
Car Alarms Ravelco
Car alarms normally easily accessible to a thief, making the electrical connections under the dash in the cab of your vehicle. Ravelco difficult to access, making all connections in the engine compartment.
Car alarms wires normally unprotected. Ravelco wires protected by steel-armor cable through the firewall of your vehicle.
Car alarm wires normally color-coded, making jumping or disarming fast and easy. Ravelco wires are all black, so even if a thief gained access to them, he'd be much more likely to short out a fuse or relay.
Car alarms use wireless codes which can be grabbed by wireless receivers when you use them. Ravelco uses a uniquely coded plug making a physical connection that cannot be grabbed wirelessly.
Most car alarms are installed in about 15 minutes, which saves money on labor, but what goes in fast... comes out faster. RAVELCO installation is much more secure, taking an average of 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Wires are camouflaged to look factory-installed.
Car alarms draw power from your battery, and can drain them when you are on vacation. Ravelco draws no power from your battery.
Car alarms can fail, forcing you to have your vehicle towed for repair. Ravelco has a 0% equipment failure rate.
Thieves defeat car alarms easily. Generally ignored by everyone else. Ravelco turns the tables on the thieves, regularly defeating them.

Ravelco has protected 4 million vehicles and
prevented thefts for 31 years with 100% success.
