interesting, do tell....
Back in 2006 I had a system like that installed in my fiero. I was using it as a commuter car to go to some college courses when I went back to school headed know the path for the doctorate.

It was made by viper, and I want to say it was a 5900 sst model? Name sticks in my head. Anyways, no separate system for monitoring aside from the fob which also added remote start and options on the car.

I was thinking of electrifying the steering wheel with a one of those Tesla batteries or something of the like. But I thought I might get in trouble if someone died in the car....and the stench would be a downer as well.

On a similar note, I electrified the scrap dumpster at work to deter the thieves. I did get a police visit over that one. One of the five that jumped in and got zapped turned me in.

Reminds me of an old maxim article back 15 or 20 years ago covering what they did to stop thefts in South africa... even down to putting a sawed off shotgun under the dash rigged to shoot the crotch if you didn't disarm....

I didn't see that one but I remember two others from there that era that (1) electrified the door handles, and (2) a 2-3ft long steel pole mounted in the center of the running boards underneath that would drop down and then spin once at high enough speed to break ankles. both were to prevent carjackings
