    Post Ultimate Car security or a Mind Game!

    How about this idea...
    Connect a smoke machine to your alarm and if intrusion is detected (let say braking of a window or something) start the smoke machine and have your carPC playing a sounds in the background saying "Intrusion is detected releasing the toxic gas (or even better nerve gas )
    In a matter of a second the whole car feels up with smoke... It’s a mind game that people usually will be afraid to take I recon.
    Well yeah you will still get your window broken but I don’t think anyone would want to stay in that car for a second.
    And if they smart enough to call the caps on you by telling them that this guy is using toxic gas in his car... I don’t think police will charge you with anything as it just a smoke and there is no law against having smoke in your car...
    How about that?

    actually, back in the early to mid 90s there was a company that had an alarm that once tripped would fill the inside of the car with smoke...

    the idea being that the thief would not be able to see when he/she tried to drive the car away

    "Stupid boy!"

    I reakon alarms are ok, but i'm still saving up for smash resistant/proof sidewindows, and having the doors delocked, as well

    Cool

    Well, why not just use real nerve gas? There's gotta' some kind of non-lethal knock out gas available...

    How would he get in in if the door was locked? In theory, Jimmy could climb through the window, but then he is invading your property. In most places (Canada and the US) you are allowed to protect your property using reasonable force. I'm not sure if knockout gas would be considered a trap or not (which is ilegal), so it may vary from state to state and province to province.

    Either way, knockout gas provides no lasting harm, so I Jimmys mom would simply find him sleeping in your car with a broken window. Seems a rather precarious position for both child and parent (parents are responsible for the actions of their children). Perhaps nerve gas is a little strong, so now about N2O? Keep the would-be thief laughing so hard they wouldn't be able to inflict any damage.

    Either way, Jimmy shouldn't be playing baseball around people's cars. If he broke my window, rest assured that his parents would be hearing from me very shortly. Perhaps the real issue with society is lack of wide open spaces for children to play. Inner city children often don't have a grassy park to play in, which translates to them getting into this mischief. If the city council would just step back and take a look at the issues, they could allocate minimal funds to turn vacant lots into small parks. Thus providing the children a safe place to paly. Unfortunately, in todays society, cities are much more concerned with attacking the symptom (crime) than actuallly curing the problem (providing funding where needed, programs for inner city youth, etc.). Our whole society seems to be based around this paradigm, and it is rather unfortunate.

    Well, then I think Jimmy should be in the hospital. The world is just too funny to be able to live with a disease like that.

    Too bad there is no such thing as "knockout gas"

    Why do you think anesthesiologists are one of the highest paid medical specialists?

    Enough knockout gas to knock out Biff the 250 pound car theif would kill your hypothetical little Jimmy, the innocent baseball playing kid.

    Maybe you guys should look at more practical things, like a goint net that shoots out of your car and traps the theif. Maybe you could electrify it or something
