I installed Autocop XS on my Swift VDi yesterday. Quite a good system IMHO, the doors lock as soon as the ignition is turned and unlock on turning the key off. There was reverse horn in the car with the system which i got disabled.

Some points which you need to consider.
You can get the best the most wonderful security system, and still have false alarms by dime a dozen.
The culprit is not your security system but the door light system.
Most security systems(Xenos, Vision, Autocop etc.,) tap on to the automatic door light system.
When you open your door a simple switch gets activated, which tells that the door is open. Over an extended period of time these switches get loose, and you have false alarms creeping in.
A good way to check this out is this.
Set the cabin light to the middle position, i.e. it glows when doors are open. Then drive over a very rough road.
Does it flicker?
If it does this means that one of your switch is faulty or loose.
It could be one of the 4 doors, the hatch, or the bonnet. Happy hunting.

Before you throw out your security system, check these switches, you may spend 5000 more and be struck with the same problem has before. As they say, the chain is as strong as its weakest link.

Hope this helps

Go for Autocop. It's tried and tested. Better still, go for a Micro VBB if you have the dough.

Question

Would anyone care to advise if installing autocop or xenos on the Swift will invalidate the car's electrical warranty? Because I keep hearing that if you install any anti-theft other than the MGA Nippon, Maruti will not be responsible nor repair under warranty if the electrical system of the car fails.

But then...does it really matter if it invalidates the warranty? I mean, how costly could the parts of the system be even if it goes out of order (a big IF)?

Recently replaced by Minda with Xenos, based on feedback from this forum. Minda had a much better range than xenos, but was unable to get a model with immobiliser & sensors. (they didnt have stock). Tried evaluating autocop too, but have been reading too many failure stories about autocop. besides the remote looks a bit ugly..

Anyone knows where I could find a good gsm based car security / tracking device in Bangalore / Chennai?

looking for something like the one on Amsaki HomSafe Limited . Have been speaking to a lady at their delhi office, they dont have dealers in the south, and are least intersted in couriering the device across..

They're based at coimbatore. but they have their engineers in most of the good dealers. Got mine fitted at Radio Warehouse Chennai. Look for a dealer at Bangalore, and he should have a Xenos guy..

Had used Autocop for a long time on 2 cars. Sensors started giving problems after a few years. A.S.S was good. Using xenos now without the sensors mainly as a central locking option. Got it fitted at the dealer itself so dunno wether its MGA. No major probs as yet just the occassional time a motor has a bad day. Opted for the xenos this time round as the remote looked better
