According to the National Insurance Crime Bureau auto theft is one of the biggest problems in the United States today, with approximately 3,000 cars being stolen per day. And now a Boca Raton, Florida company, Hawk Systems, is trying to do something about it.
Most other systems, such as car alarms and GPS are reactive systems in that emit radio signals or noise when a car is being stolen. The innovative Hawk system is a multi-layer live fingerprint identification security device that will render a car, truck, or SUV inoperable for any non-authorized person who is in the process of trying to start it. Then, unless it is towed away, it won’t be going anywhere.
CEO Michael Diamant believes, “with an increase in vehicle thefts occurring, people will see the benefit to protecting their vehicle before it is stolen rather than trying to locate and recover it after the fact.”
The company believes that its technology can also be used to help secure hotel and casino operations, banks, employee time clocks, sporting events, and more.
