Cars are equipped with an alarm system as standard. For motorcycles and houses you can easily retrofit. On their own bike, which has cost a lot of money, alarm systems are so far rather unusual protective companions and are usually not standard equipment. In bicycle shops you are usually offered a heavy and massive bike lock, ideally with the highest level of security.
In Germany, thieves steal around 300,000 bicycles a year. The number of unreported cases is much higher. Worst of all, the level of enlightenment is extremely low and not even one in ten thefts is cleared up. Among them are usually bicycles with supposedly expensive and high quality bicycle locks. Once thieves have chosen your bike and have time to crack the lock, the expensive investment is gone.
Even high-priced e-bikes are very popular for stealing, but even the supposedly old lovers pieces are not safe from theft. In bicycle theft different motivations play a role. On the one hand, offenders act very organized, even across national borders. According to ADFC statistics, around 30 percent of all bicycle thefts go back to casual offenders. Take a quick trip to the bank and the bike is gone.
A bicycle theft is a very annoying thing, which is associated with costs and time. In addition, thieves also like to steal bicycle accessories. Although the accessories are usually inexpensive to replace, yet it is no joy to have to go home without a bicycle saddle. It is therefore important to implement all measures against effective theft protection. A bicycle lock with alarm provides combined safety at a high level.
Thieves like dark places where few passers-by are. The tools to crack a lock are handy and fast. An expensive lock alone does not guarantee safety 100 percent. An alarm system on the bicycle is therefore ideal to enhance the protection by a high-quality bicycle lock yet.
Ideally, an alarm system on the bicycle will deter potential thieves from attempting theft. An alarm system obviously attached to the bicycle contributes to the fact that the potential thief assesses his chances of being successful as too low and ignores theft from the outset.
If the thief still tries on the bicycle, a 110 dB loud alarm sounds from I LOCK IT. I LOCK IT is equipped with integrated motion sensors that monitor all the movements of your bike around the clock.
