    That's probably why you think that your camera idea is good

    gosh.. for all the time and money to implement, defend, replace, insure your precious car contents... what about methods for just preventing entry in the first place? what about a few layers of security laminates that keeps your glass together upon impact? (i know the glass still breaks, but it's ingress you're trying to prevent). What about hidden deadbolts either manually or electronically operated to prevent the doors from opening even if the factory locks are disengaged?...

    and then if we were hell bent on assaulting the intruder's well-being, what about strobe lights? granted they don't do much in case of a daytime break-in... but i think the majority would be under cover of darkness... if your eyes are trying to adjust to daylight and blackness every 2 seconds, you're not going to make much progress.

    here's another thought... we're all supposedly into the carPC idea. your computer is a wonderful tool for automation. Why not when the entry alarm (not shock sensor) is triggered have it dial out to 911 (cell phone or otherwise) and play a recorded audio file reporting a burglary in process followed by a text-to-speech rendition of your gps coordinates or street intersections?

    dabbling down those roads i think might avoid the lawsuits and they're just more ideas to improve security or response.

    just my $.02, fire at will.

    i like that idea, but i can see it now

    someone breaks into my car, computer starts dialing wrong number, and someone in the next city wonders who's prank calling them

    heh.. it's only gotta dial three numbers! i know computers aren't the pinnacle of reliability, but i think you'd have to suffer some pretty serious corruption to change 9-1-1 in a text file to anything else (provided someone wasn't diddling with your system before)

    maybe it could phone the president instead. He'd probably talk back.

    yeah, i've had a lot of problems with computers that you'd think shouldnt happen..

    what if the computer hung while dialing, 91111111111111111111.......

    wonder what the operator would think, lol

    maybe they'd think "prank caller! trace the phone and arrest those hooligans!"

    as long as it doesn't take them as long as jack bauer takes to trace a call...

    just hope they get the right hooligan.

    lol

    thats the thing, even if the car dialed 911, and the police did come, the thieves would be long gone by then anyway, unless they were really really slow

    unless the police are like a block from your house when they get the call anyway

    i say we need automatic guns mounted to the roof, anyone touches ur car, and *BLAM*BLAM*BLAM*

    Not a smart idea relying on the police. They are slow. Unless the theif wants to get all the wiring and is careful about takign apart your dash, I doubt that they will come when the theif is in the car. And if the theif is out of the car, the burden of proof that he stole your radio will be on you.
