Ghost Immobiliser Review

Consumers are always seeking ways to stop car theft, which is on the rise. Ghost immobiliser is an innovative device that is able to do exactly that.

It’s the first-ever aftermarket CAN bus immobiliser that shields your vehicle from key cloning, hacking or keyless entry. It also stops thieves driving away with your vehicle.

No Faraday Bags and Radio Signals

In contrast to other physical anti-theft devices like wheel locks or steering wheel clamps, Ghost immobilisers (www.hwajung.kr) have been designed to be covert and inaccessible. They are integrated into the buttons of your vehicle they protect against key cloning, car hacking, ECU swapping and even key theft. Ghost immobilisers prevent the engine from running until you enter a specific PIN code along with your key fob. The PIN code can be up to 20 presses long, and can be modified by the driver through an app or buttons on the vehicle. If you forget your pin, a button breaks or you sell your car, there’s an emergency PIN code that is unique to every device that can be used to reset the system.

Ghost immobilisers come with the benefit of being unnoticeable by devices for diagnostics and do not emit radio frequency signals. This means that thieves cannot employ sophisticated scanning techniques to detect an immobiliser. They also utilize the CAN data network that requires no wire cutting upon installation and is quieter than other immobilisers.

Ghost immobilisers aren’t Thatcham approved, but they are TASSA-approved. Certain insurers offer lower rates for insurance to vehicles with an aftermarket immobiliser. They are however recognised as an additional layer of security and have the potential to deter thieves from targeting your vehicle of choice.
