Anyone know if this is a thing? Randomly came to mind.
Decoy key (same as fob) which when pressing unlock button activates car alarm.
I keep my keys in my bedroom and spare key is in another house, would be great to have one of these downstairs in open key box, just a thought anyway.
What are some of the security measures you have?
Managed to avoid what could have been a nasty incident on the way home from a friend's house this evening.
Driving through back road of Brentwood in Essex near the Weald if you know the area, another car comes flying up behind me flashing their lights and indicating to the left, to pull over, could tell it was another R by the U headlights in the mirror.
Thought at first just some d**k wanting to race but flashing continues aggressively and the car is about 3 inches from my bumper, pull up at a red light at a crossroads the R has overtaken and attempted to pull in front. I open my window to remonstrate and there's 4 guys in there one in the front had a baseball cap on shouting to pull over , as the back doors open on the other R and two guys go to get out I boot it through the red light, he follows me through and we are now on country lanes doing silly speeds, I've managed to call the police in the meantime and he's overtaken me as I was dialling so I spun round and sped off again, he follows suit.
Police tell me to stick to main roads so I head towards the A12 still driving at maximum speed, get to the motorway he's in in my mirrors but around 10 car lengths behind, I'm hitting speeds of 150+ on the A12 all the time on the phone to the police and manage to shake him.
All in all not a nice experience, and this is the second one directly related to the car as someone tried breaking into my parents house around a year ago when I was parked there to go to the train station, luckily noone was in and I had the keys on me. Nothing else was taken and the CCTV showed people attempting the car doors.
Car is leased and goes back in May after 3 years in my hands. I absolutely love the car and would be ordering another but unfortunately it is just not worth the aggro and will look to get something a little less desirable for scum.
The other R was reflex silver and on a '14 plate, another of my friends saw it still driving around the Brentwood area around 30 mins later but didn't manage to get the full plate-no doubt the car is stolen anyway.
Keep your wits about you, it is only through reading this forum that I am only too aware of the regularity of these types of incidents and am always alert to anyone following when driving and pulling up to my house. Being on my toes has avoided what could have been a very nasty incident.
Stay safe !

Unfortunately Jaguar-Land Rover beat me to it. My bright idea to integrate facial recognition into a car's security has been patented, damn! However, in my initial research (lasted 5 minutes) there's some incredible stuff out there including gait analysis, facial recognition, finger prints etc. I can't think of a better way of securing a car? Okay, it'd need a fail-safe which might be able to be exploited, but maybe security needs to be taken to this level?
