Why You Need a Ghost 2 Immobiliser Fitting Near Me

Modern day thieves can rob vehicles within 1 minute. They use the OBD port of the car to hack into the ECU and then duplicate the key and all with an unprotected laptop inside the vehicle.

An Autowatch Ghost immobiliser blocks this by sending a sequence of pin codes through buttons that are already in your vehicle (steering wheel and central console). It is completely inaccessible to anyone inside your vehicle.

No key fobs, LED indicators or other means of locating the vehicle are available.

The ghost immobiliser is a great method to protect against keyless entry theft and key copying. This device shields your vehicle from these kinds of attacks by blocking the engine when the valid pin code has been entered. This is an extremely efficient method of protecting your car, and even insurance companies recognize it as a precautionary measure that can reduce the cost of your policy.

The ghost is connected to your vehicle’s CAN data network. Once installed by Car Theft Solutions, it will only work when you enter your personal override code as well as a specific button combination. This means that any attempt to start the vehicle without entering this code will be greeted with a loud alarm, and the engine won’t start. The thief then realizes that they have been taken prisoner and will likely leave the vehicle.

This system has the benefit of not transmitting any signals like the tracker. Thieves cannot utilize RF receivers to determine your Ghost device’s location. It also doesn’t transmit any IR (infrared) signals, like the usual remote key fobs for control or tracker do, making it very hard to bypass or hack.

Another benefit of the ghost immobiliser birmingham is that it features the valet mode which can be activated when you give your vehicle to a valet service or parking. The immobiliser will be disabled CAN for 30 mph and allow you to use your vehicle as normal with your key fob. When the vehicle is parked up again, the Ghost will return to full functionality.

No hacking, cloning, or altering

The Autowatch Ghost immobiliser is one of the most advanced models available. It shields your vehicle from hacking and key cloning and makes it virtually impossible to take. The only way a thief could steal your car is to physically tow it away & even then they wouldn’t be able to start the engine.

This is because unlike other immobilisers that stop the car from starting if they do not have your fob, this system actually shuts off your engine control unit so that the vehicle is unable to start. The system communicates messages through buttons on the steering wheel, door panel, or centre console. It is only disarmed using the correct pin code configuration.

Its sleek and discrete design ensures that it will fit into your vehicle seamlessly with no additional keys or LEDs and it operates independently of your original alarm or tracker. It also functions as a CAN bus immobiliser which means that it sits within the control area network of your vehicle and is not interfering with any existing devices like your vehicle’s built in key fob or alarm.

This exclusive technology is not easily detected by thieves unlike other systems that employ codes and RF scanning. It only sends a series of pin codes that are silently transmitted through the buttons on your car’s steering wheel or door panels, or central console. The Ghost is a revolutionary device that protects your vehicle against keyless entry and smart key theft by producing an individual, personalized pin code that must be entered to disarm it.

The number of vehicles that have no keyless entry that are on the road is growing. Thieves are getting more sophisticated and employ devices for cloning which can be bought on the internet or in classifieds less than PS15. The key fob that is cloned can be used to gain access to the vehicle. A standard immobiliser for vehicles only prevents the engine from starting if they have your original key fob. This does not offer enough security and is easy for criminals to steal or jam signals to gain access to the vehicle.

Valet mode

Standard immobilisers installed to your vehicle use an electronic chip that sends signals. The system will then search for the code sent by the key to start the car. If the correct signal cannot be received, the system will cut off the power and prevent the car from beginning. This is the basis of all immobilisers for cars that are aftermarket. It’s a crucial step to protect your vehicle from being taken away, even if someone has your keys or a device that could boost the signal of your key fob.

But a ghost immobiliser doesn’t just stop it, it goes much further. The system, which is located on the CAN Bus of your Mercedes has been programmed with an unique PIN code that must be entered to begin the vehicle. The app is then locked your application and nobody will ever be able to access it unless they have the same pin you have.

The system will also stop cloning, signal jamming and hacking (which thieves may employ to bypass the immobiliser on your vehicle). This means that if a thief manages to steal your car keys or key fob they won’t be capable of starting your car even if they’re parked within a few feet of it. They may only be able to steal your car off flatbed trucks and that’s highly unlikely.

Valet mode is an excellent feature that is included with your ghost immobiliser. When it is activated the glove box and trunk of your car will be locked. This means that anyone trying to take your car away will not have anything personal to steal. It also limits the speed of your Tesla so that it is not able to be driven at speeds of more than 70mph. It will also disable insane modes. It will also lock your driver profiles and hide your home or work addresses to ensure that no one other person can access the private information on your Tesla dashboard.

If you want to make use of your car for valet parking or for service purposes, just select the ‘Valet/Service’ option in the dashboard app and then enter your 4-digit valet pin on the touchscreen. After this is done, the alarm functions will be bypassed however, it will block the ability to start your vehicle without a valid pin entered. This is perfect for people who need to hand their car over to others like taxi drivers or garage mechanics.
