Since the AutoPi is always online, it is possible to use it for theft detection. The AutoPi can monitor movement and start of your car. You can set up the AutoPi to give notifications to you every time your car is started and even monitor its position online in real-time, thus being able to guide authorities to the exact location of your vehicle. You can set up your AutoPi to sound audible alarms inside your car, to warn off intruders.
How to do it?
You can set up AutoPi to notify you every time the car has started and/or when it starts moving. It can also be used as a parental control to be aware of your kids using your vehicle. You can do it all within the AutoPi dashboard. We also wrote a blog post about how to add a remote theft detection system to your vehicle.

Benefits of theft detection
There are lots of benefits when it comes to theft detection optimization. The main benefit is that you are one step ahead of a thief. With a feature of notifying you when the vehicle starts and moves, you are aware of the current situation and can act straight away. You also have an opportunity to monitor the vehicle in real-time, which can help you to guide the authorities and find your vehicle and a thief much faster.
In addition, AutoPi can notify the intruder with audible sound alarms within your vehicle and it might even persuade the intruder to leave the vehicle alone.
A supporting benefit of theft detection is that it can be used as a parental control service. The same way as before, it can warn you when the vehicle starts and moves, therefore, you are aware of your child using your vehicle and even monitoring when he/she is located.
