First off, very sorry to hear about your break in. I hope you didn't loose anything that can't be replaced.

Secondly, what alarm you choose depends on what you want from a car alarm.

Here's some advice on choosing the best car alarm system:
EzineArticles said:
It is not uncommon when you began shopping for a car alarm system to see the advertisements of different brands and models all claiming to be the best car alarm system you could buy. This is the nature of a competitive business environment and a smart consumer will take the time to investigate each car alarm system and how it works in application before making their choice.

Finding the best car alarm system begins with understanding the type of vehicle you own and what type of car alarm system is compatible with it. If you own a car that was manufactured in the year 2000 it may not be able to sustain the requirements of some of the sophisticated car alarm systems that have been developed in accordance with automobile production in 2005.

The first place to find this information is in your automobile owners’ manual, and it is important to note that many automobiles were manufactured with car alarm systems installed. If this information applies to your vehicle and you want to upgrade your car alarm system you may need to talk to an experienced auto mechanic in order to understand which system you should select.

For the owners of automobiles produced within the last two years that do not have factory installed car alarm systems, the array of choices available to you may be broader due to the increased awareness of automobile manufacturers in designing vehicles to be compatible with the more sophisticated car alarm systems.

Finding the best car alarm system for your vehicle in this case becomes more of a task where you must select the security features that you want for your car. Many drivers prefer the pager of car alarm systems with a remote control device that allows them to remain in continuous communication with their vehicle while other drivers are more focused on how to take advantage of keyless entry systems.

Once you decide on the category of car alarms that you were interested in that will provide you with the security that you want for your vehicle, you can begin to look at the manufacturers product descriptions as well as consumer review reports to determine which car alarm system is best for you. Narrowing your selection to a few brands or models can help you compare features easier and will enable you to ask the questions that are important for your situation that may not be covered in consumer reviews.

It would not be fair to say that one car alarm system is best for everyone regardless to what manufacturers of car alarms want to believe. The best car alarm system for you is the one that best meets your security requirements at a price you can afford.

Give yourself sufficient time to work through the process of evaluating a car alarm systems you have selected; talk to other drivers about their experience with their personal car alarm systems, this is an auto security store and review the features of close and personal with a salesperson who is knowledgeable about how they work as well as the installation process required to make them functional in your vehicle. Keep in mind that the car alarm systems being developed and sold today in many cases must be installed by a professional technician.
