Been thinking about upgrading the security system in my car. Right now it’s just a standard keyfob that locks/unlocks the doors, it does have a starter kill though where the car won’t start if the alarm has been triggered. So basically, if you can disconnect the alarm before it goes off, my car is yours… I’ve been meaning to add an immobilizer with a hidden reed switch that would act as Plan B, based on a simple circuit found on AutoSpeed’s website (they’re also working on putting a turbo in a Prius). Speaking of security, the main point of this post was to share these two pictures. Supposedly a garage owner in New Mexico gave his dog a hair cut in order to thwart thieves:
He was sick and tired of thugs breaking into his garage shop to steal tools, etc.
So he came up with this idea. He put the word out that he had a new
Mexican Lion that would attack anyone that would break in or climb his fence.
Would-be thieves saw the “Lion” from a distance and fled the scene.
Ingenuity at its finest!!
