Top Anti-Theft Systems for Your Van

The best security systems to prevent thefts of vans and trucks are:

  1. GPS Tracker
  2. Anti-Theft Alarm
  3. GPS Alarm Stickers
  4. Security Camera
  5. Steering Wheel Lock
  6. Wheel Clamps
  7. Pedal Lock
  8. Handbrake Lock

Below, we present a model of each of these anti-theft security systems. We have verified their competitive pricing, product quality, ease of installation and operation, device reliability, and durability over time. These are our recommendations:

All the above-mentioned products are within the mid-to-high range with a good price. If you are willing to spend a bit more money, you may find models that offer additional security features. However, please note that there won’t be a significant difference in performance between these products.

On the other hand, we strongly advise against purchasing products at a lower price point. While there might be similar products available in the market for a slightly lower price, their quality significantly decreases, and you will compromise on the security provided by the anti-theft systems.

Furthermore, if you decide to purchase security systems from a different brand, pay close attention to certain features for the GPS tracker and security camera to avoid being misled:

GPS Tracker: Before purchasing a GPS tracker, ensure that it includes a data subscription for several years or at least a guaranteed maximum price for a specified period of time. There are very cheap GPS trackers available, but their mobile application requires an expensive subscription to function. Be sure to carefully check before making any purchases. The recommended GPS tracker mentioned earlier includes several years of subscription, and upon renewal each year after the initial period, it offers very competitive prices.

Security Camera: Make sure it includes the following features: front-facing camera and interior camera, night vision, automatic recording upon detecting motion 24/7, compatibility with high-capacity memory cards to view recordings from several days ago that haven’t been deleted, and the ability to stop recording in parking mode if the vehicle’s battery is low to avoid draining it.

Of course, it’s not necessary to acquire all the previously mentioned products. Depending on your needs (vehicle usage, parking location safety, ease of use, etc.), you can choose one or more products and combine them to achieve an ideal balance between security and convenience for you.

Lastly, if you wish to have alternative and superior security elements, consult with a trusted mechanic who can advise you on the latest anti-theft systems for your vehicle. For example, if you are interested in an immobilizer, it should be installed by a professional according to the specific characteristics of your van or truck (the products presented in this article are meant for self-installation).
