Vehicle Theft Alarm

The first documented case of car theft was in 1896, only a decade after gas-powered cars were first introduced. From that early era to today, cars have been a natural target for thieves: they are  reasonably easy to extract value from and have a built-in getaway system. Some studies claim that a car gets broken into every 20 seconds in the United States alone.

MEMSIC's accelerometers are used for anti-theft car alarm systems to detect real time status / position of a parked car, even slow moving attitude chages such as the vehicle being pulled onto a flat bed or being raised by a car jack.  The accelerometer is a key part as they are able to not only detect mechanical shock to the vehicle, but also attitude change or movement.  If somebody hits, jostles or otherwise moves your car, the sensor sends a signal to the computer system indicating the intensity of the motion. Depending on the analysis of the acceleration the system decides to set the alarm condition or not.
