If it is not recovered, having a car stolen can also be a financial calamity. Annual property losses from stolen cars in the United States run about $4.5 billion and only about 12 percent of stolen car cases are solved. Perhaps the most frustrating aspect of all regarding auto theft is that many car owners are nearby when their cars are stolen, either relaxing or sleeping at home when a thief makes off with their car that had been parked on the street just around the block. One way to prevent car theft is by installing a car alarm with a two-way pager into an automobile. This two-way pager car alarm buying guide will explain what a two-way pager car alarm is and what its key security and driver control features are.

Factory Alarm Arm / Disarm:
When installing an alarm or remote car starter into a vehicle with a factory alarm, you must have these outputs available. When the alarm is disarmed or remote starter is activated, it will send a pulse to your factory alarm unit to disarm. When the lock button is pressed, the alarm unit will send a pulse to the factory alarm to arm it once again. This will prevent any interference between your new car alarms or remote starter and your vehicles factory installed equipment.
Grounded Output When Armed:
The grounded output when armed is generally used for starter disable applications. When the lock / arm button is pressed, this wire becomes grounded. This will trigger the relay which will inturn cut off the desired circuit.
