Ghost Immobiliser Review

As car theft rises, consumers are constantly looking for ways to prevent it. The ghost immobiliser does exactly that.

It’s the world’s first aftermarket CAN bus immobiliser that protects your vehicle from key cloning, hacking or keyless entry. It also prevents thieves from stealing your vehicle.

No Faraday Bags or Radio Signals

Unlike other physical anti-theft devices like steering wheel locks and wheel clamps, ghost immobilisers are designed to be hidden and undetectable. They are built into buttons of the vehicle and protect against key copying. Ghost immobilisers prevent the engine from starting unless you enter a specific PIN code sequence alongside your key fob. The PIN code can be as long as up to 20 presses long and is changed by the driver using an app or buttons on the vehicle. If you forget your pin a button breaks or you sell your car, you can use an emergency PIN code that is unique to each device to reset the system.

Ghost immobilisers also have the benefit of being undetectable by devices for diagnostics and do not emit radio frequency signals. This means that thieves are unable to use sophisticated scanning technology to detect an immobiliser. They also utilize the CAN data network, which requires no wire cutting upon installation and is quieter than other immobilisers.

Ghost immobilisers might not be Thatcham approved but they are TASSA-approved. Some insurers will offer lower insurance rates to vehicles equipped with an aftermarket immobiliser.
