LOL!!

Actually, your best bet is one that alerts you through the remote. Car alarms in general are pretty much ignored these days because people have 'em set so sensitive that changes in light set 'em off. At least if your remote goes ape on you, you'll be aware of what'* happening.

Oh, and I was a cop in the Army for about 10 years, so I have a little experience in this field.
