Imagine if your car could call you to let you know it was under attack or where it was? Well it can’t talk but when its fitted with a state-of-the-art vehicle tracking or security system it can ‘SMS’ you and provide online positioning and status reports.
An immobiliser is a component that is fitted to the vehicle which disables the appropriate electrical components when the system is armed. It is possible to have up to three points of immobilisation in a vehicle depending on the capabilities of the system being fitted. Immobilisers can be armed by way of, touch keys, transponders (proximity), remote control or even via a mobile phone for the ultimate in car security.
It is important to note that although immobilisers are an excellent deterrent against the theft of your vehicle they do not offer sufficient protection of your vehicles interior or contents.
Alarm systems combine the security of an inbuilt immobiliser with the addition of external sensors and sirens to offer a greater degree of protection for your entire vehicle. Alarms can be tailored to you and your vehicles individual requirements with the addition of different sensors and programmable features.
Optional sensors offer extra protection by way of tracking sudden movements or impact to the vehicle, by setting fields around and in the vehicle that monitor for changes in temperature or air pressure and sensors that ensure that the vehicle is not lifted or tilted. All sensors are not necessarily ideal for every vehicle which is where we will be able to advise you on the best options to suit your vehicles requirements.
Alarms are generally armed via the supplied remote control or alternatively they may be controlled through your vehicles factory supplied keyless entry remote controls. This integration into factory systems is refereed to as an alarm upgrade and is available for most modern vehicles with factory supplied remotes. It offers you the advantage of increased security whilst maintaining a factory appearance and no additional remotes hanging from your key ring.
