Car, commercial vehicle and motorhome security systems

The Autowatch Ghost immobiliser.

The Ghost is the world's first aftermarket CAN bus immobiliser and protects your car from theft like nothing else on the market today. The Ghost protects your car from key-cloning, hacking, and even key theft. The only way a thief could take a Ghost protected car is by physically towing it away, even then they will never be able to drive it!

The Ghost has no key-fobs or LED indications to give away its location. The Ghost uses the buttons in your vehicle such as those on the steering wheel, door panels or centre console, to allow you to make a unique, changeable, PIN code sequence that must first be entered before you can drive your car. Just like your credit card but you can make your car PIN even safer by making it up to 20 presses long!

However, we did not settle there! In order to make extreme security also be hassle free, we have created an iPhone application that connects to your car and allows you to get in and drive without having to enter the PIN code. This iPhone pairing allows a single, authorised, connection with a secret pairing code that is unique to every Ghost and communication between the Ghost and the iPhone is encrypted. All you have to do is pair your iPhone with your Ghost, leave the Autowatch Ghost application running in the background with Bluetooth enabled and you can drive conveniently and securely.  

 

 

Thatcham Category 1 and 2-1 alarm systems

thatcham alarms fittedAlthough most modern vehicles come as standard with an immobiliser and some with an alarm system too, we still install many Thatcham approved alarm systems to modern cars, classic cars, commercial vehicles and especially motorhomes, camper vans and caravans.

We offer Cobra, Autowatch and Sigma Thatcham approved alarms, for both CAN and non-CAN vehicles. The system we recommend will depend on the make, model and year of your vehicle.

Additional locks for commercial vehicles - slamlocks, deadlocks & Hykee locks

Unfortuately, theft of tools and equipment from the back of commercial vehicles has always been prevailant and being a victim can cripple small businesses. Adding additional locks to the load area of your vehicle will act as a visual deterrant as well as adding physical security. It can also lower your insurance premium or help you get additional cover for tools and contents. We install both slam locks and deadlocks.

van security deadlocksOur Thatcham Approved Deadlocks are fitted in addition to the manufacturers lock. The lock operates by throwing a bolt into a receiver fitted to the opposing body section when operated by an external key.
As Deadlocks are under the control of the driver, they are generally only appropriate for owner drivers or applications where the driver can be relied upon to operate the lock.

 

van security slam locks

A Slamlock integrates with the existing locking mechanism on your vehicle whereas a deadlock is completely separate from the existing locking mechanism. A slamlock will automatically lock every time the door is closed making it a perfect solution for multi-drop operations. These locks combine a genuine Security Slam operation with a high visual deterrent and a pleasing appearance.

Armaplate

armaplate lock protection

We also offer the Armaplate Sentinel product. Thieves often attack van lock mechanisms by piercing the doorskin with nothing more than a screwdriver!  It literally takes seconds to break in. The Armaplate Sentinel protects the vulnerable areas surrounding the locks with a stainless-steel exterior plate which is bolted through the steel doorskin and then through an even larger steel backing plate. This is a FIT & FORGET device which requires no input from the driver and there are no additional keys to carry.

 

OBD Protector

obd protectorPortector® is an innovative hardware solution which permanently integrates into the vehicle without the need to cut into the wiring and designed specifically to protect a vehicles OBD port. It works by stopping the information travelling to the OBD port and therefore prevents a thief from accessing it, effectively closing the OBD port whilst Portector® is armed. 

The OBD protector is a tamper proof, professionally fitted signal blocking device. It is designed to combat the form of crime which is often referred to as 'keyless theft' or 'electronic compromise'; whereby thieves do not need the keys to steal the vehicle. Most vehicles taken without keys are stolen using equipment which plugs into the On-Board Diagnostic (OBD) port. This intelligent equipment 'hacks' the system and is able to bypass the vehicles integrated security protocols in order to program a new key. 

Once installed the system is permanently armed and is provided with two short range transponder OBD port authorisation cards, that are registered to the owner. When authorised access is required to the vehicle's diagnostic system, for example the vehicle is going in for servicing, just present the technician with a card.

Portector® is Thatcham Quality Assured (certificate number TQA511). This means it has been fully independently tested to meet the industry standards for security and quality.
