there is an important design problem with the alarms on the cars that i want to address.
when a car detects some unusual activity and alarm triggers, how do the car owner know it is their car the annoying beeping/buzzing one (as opposed to just somebody else’s car)? (if there was a mechanism that i am unaware of by which the oenwer knows, then the alarm is unneceesary in the first place).
besides, there is a second problem that, unlike the first, directly affects me: the buzzing soon becomes very annoying for everyone around the car after, say, after one minute. especially for those who were sleeping and were suddenly woke up…
i thereby propose the following recommendation to the car manufacturers: let the car alarm systems support customizable polytones, like the old phone rings. for one hand, users will be able to choose their very own alarm song and so recognize if the fucking beeping car is theirs or not. for the other, next time i involuntarily wake up this early i will be able to project my anger into something more hate-able than just a stupid monotone beep, something like Macarena perhaps?
