For the average show car, security is not even a consideration, but street riders know that if you're going to drive it, you had better protect it. Over the last few years, there have been great strides in knowing what's going on with your car while you're away from it.
Two-way communication and long-range transceiver modules now allow you to keep track of your ride up to a mile away or through the interference of airports and the concrete structures of local shopping malls. With everything connected, you will know if your trunk, hood or doors have been opened. You will also be able to keep track of sensor status and, if equipped, know if your vehicle is started.
Our project this month is a big-body street rider. Not scared to drive this Cadillac, our street soldier was looking for some added protection for his high-hopping chariot. For this chariot shield, we looked to Ungo ProSecurity. Their SR9000 utilizes Secure Digital Communication (SDC), which transmits signals over a wide range of digital frequencies, then recollects them at the receiver.
The SDC process resists jamming and interception, thus providing long-range communication between the vehicle and hand-held transceivers. This uninterrupted long-range connection is what provides you with superior signal, two-way communication, and peace of mind.
Now, while installing alarms is never easy, we'll take you through the steps of how the pros do it. Most alarm company warranties are very specific about authorized dealer installed, but follow along as our authorized master shields this street chariot with a lowrider twist.
The Ungo ProSecurity SR9000 is ready to tackle the task of protecting our "big-body."
