How do factory security systems compare with aftermarket systems?

0

It depends on several factors, and you should try to compare apples with apples. For instance, most factory “security systems” are actually “antitheft systems,” meaning that they are essentially engine disable/starter kills and not full featured security systems with a sensor. But say that you are comparing true security systems. If they are both quality systems, carefully installed, then the main factor that weighs against factory security is the assembly line: all systems for a particular make and model year will be installed exactly the same, with publicly-available instructions in the service manuals telling thieves how to disable them! Also, many factory security systems lack a shock or impact sensor and rely on door triggers.
