The study aimed to create an anti-theft device for motorcycle. Specifically, it sought to determine the device’s level of efficiency in terms of functionality and operation. The features were as follows: (1) device alerts the owner when the motorcycle is being taken through lifting or pushing; (2) lets current flow through to handles; (3) sounds the alarm and sends a text message to the owner; (4) consists of a fingerprint sensor which turns the motorcycle’s engine on or off when it detects the owner’s fingerprint; (5) turns the ultrasonic sensor and speedometer on when the motorcycle’s engine is off; (6) the ultrasonic sensor turns on the safety features once the motorcycle is lifted up; (7) the speedometer turns on the safety features once the motorcycle is pushed; and (8) the GSM enables and or disables the safety features of the device. This study employed experimental method and descriptive approach to generate the necessary data. The features of the device exhibited very high efficiency as seen in its functionality test and as evaluated by thirty purposively chosen experts from the field of engineering.
