Investing in an aftermarket vehicle immobiliser offers you robust protection against potential car thieves and criminals. As well as being a deterrent, it can also help reduce insurance premiums for high-value vehicles.
Installing security systems such as vehicle immobilisers or GPS car trackers are effective to lessen the chance of vehicle theft or damage.
How Can I Tell If My Car Has A Vehicle Immobiliser?
If your car was manufactured in the UK after October 1998 – it is likely to have a factory-fitted immobiliser. This can be double checked in the vehicle handbook or confirming with the seller/mechanic.
However, a factory fitted immobiliser is a standard feature the thieves have learnt to override and therefore can often outsmart to steal your vehicle. Aftermarket vehicle immobilisers such as the Autowatch Ghost Immobiliser are a great option using a disarm sequence inside the vehicle before the engine will start. This means that even if thieves manage to get hold of your keys, as the sequence is only known by the driver, they won’t be able to drive away.
As well as the added benefit of potentially lower insurance renewals, you will have full peace of mind that your valuable vehicle will be safe.
