SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX 5) — Car owners have a new tool to fight car break-ins.

Logan Blunt is one of San Francisco’s many car break-in victims.

“It feels really invasive like someone almost personally targeted you,” Blunt said. “It’s a very big inconvenience when you’re minimum wage in the city.”

A thief broke into her car in San Francisco just a few months ago, stealing her backpack and iPad.

But Andy Hodge, the founder and CEO of Owl, may have just the thing to stop car thieves in their tracks.

“We said: could we take those same features you have in a home security system and bring them to the car?” Hodge explains. “Meaning when something happens you have the video, whether you’re in the car or you’re out.”

The Owl cam is a surveillance camera for your vehicle that’s powered on 24/7 and connected to your phone. But it does more than just record.
