One advantage of hooking it to the clutch pedal and if you also have a gear lock would be that it will become difficult to tow the car away as the gear lock will prevent the gear to be shifted to neutral and the lock on the clutch will prevent anyone from moving the car around by depressing the clutch.

mmm....one can easily change the gears w/o depressing the clutch. And even if I assume what you have said is 100% technically correct, we are seriously underestimating the determination of the tow guy.

Please check with the manual/specification provided with the central locking Kit,
to ensure that the system is installed correctly or not , and if the feature is provided by the company or not.
The basic functionality of a central lock is to lock/unlock all doors using 1 lock (driver/passenger)

Checked the manual, it says only the Key ON/OFF (lock/Unlock) feature.
Autoshop Kumar told me about this before installing.

The final price was 4500/-. Its working fine till now. Installation was done properly. Initially the rear doors opening was not alarming the system, so they changed the autocop switch for that. Now its working fine.

I have Nippon system. All basis work well but complex set ups like door locking after 20 kmph speed etc. doesn't work. I used to own a santro which had cobra security system. It also had volumetric sensors. IMO It is far superior security system than Nippon.

I got the Nippon OEM security system in my WagonR. It has been working fine for the last two years. Immobiliser. The doors get auto-locked after hitting a speed of 20kph. The range of remote is good. Go through the manual & you find a lot of programmable settings.
I would recommnd that anyday!

I had a really bad experience with Autocops.I got the premium version installed in my Safari (with ultrasonic sensor, impact sensor, immobilizer etc.)

The impact sensor used to give problems waking up the entire neighborhood on rainy days.

In last 6 months or so, the system was changed 3 times. But every few days, the remote or something else stops working and the car won't start.

Now the funny part which I came to know is that the shelf immobilizer is practically useless. Once you disconnect few cables or push start the car it will be bypassed.

Having being almost stranded in a couple of places due to Autocops (the doors did not open or the car did not start after I opened the doors with keys), I now bypassed the immobilizer.

Even then it is not working as expected. For example, I got it changed couple of days back but today it was giving problems and I had a heated argument with their support.

The company usually sends people within 2/3 days if a problem is reported. However, the system may strand you and there is no point in spending few thousand rupees as the system may be easily bypassed.

I am thinking about changing this to a basic system from some other brand.
