Security

ADR (Auto Driver Recognition Card) Security
A Driver recognition card that enhances security by making sure that your car will not start without the card present.

Alarm Systems
Many new cars are fitted with alarms, immobilisers and other security devices to improve vehicle security. Although newer vehicles boast a range of security devices, there is still a major need to be vigilant. We all have car insurance that covers break in’s and theft, but we don’t realise how much our premium goes up if the vehicle has been stolen or broken into. Most modern vehicles are prone to vehicle theft by thieves using scanners to reprogram keys to steal the vehicle right under your nose! We at Bromley Car Audio offer a range of products that are Thatcham approved for insurance purposes as well as non-Thatcham approved products that give extra added security to the vehicle.

  • Thatcham Category 1- electronic alarm and immobiliser
    Systems that fall into this class are the cleverest and most complex on the market. A category 1 alarm system will feature perimeter, ignition detection as well as incorporating glass break sensors. The Category 1 alarm system also comes with a battery backup siren.
    Immobilisers are also a requirement to pass Category 1 tests and provides an engine cut on crank, fuel or ignition.
  • Thatcham Category 2 – electronic immobiliser
    Where an alarm system is not a requirement by the insurance company but a Thatcham 2 immobiliser is.
    Just like the Category 1 system the Category 2 system provides an engine cut on crank, fuel or ignition.
  • Thatcham Category 2-1 – electronic alarm upgrade
    With most modern vehicles having factory Category 2 system installed by the manufactures. The 2-1 upgrade allows you to just add an alarm to the existing system giving you the extra security to the interior and exterior of the vehicle.
  • Non-Thatcham approved product – non detectable immobiliser
    A non-Thatcham approved product means that the governing body has not approved this product meaning no insurance company will accept it on behalf of the approved products.

 

GPS Tracker
With more than 300,000 vehicles stolen every year, the UK is the worst affected country in Europe. Today’s high value vehicles provide rich pickings for today’s new breed of professional vehicle thieves who steal to order.

  • Vodafone CobraTrak uses the latest GPS and GSM technology, providing pinpoint accuracy and unparalleled service levels. Police liaison is conducted in local language through a network of Secure Operating Centres across 40 European countries plus Russia and South Africa.

All of Vodafone Automotive’s vehicle tracking solutions are Thatcham accredited and recognised by major insurers.

Choose the Vodafone CobraTrak Plus system which detects unauthorised movement of a vehicle when the ignition is switched off (e.g. if the vehicle is towed away), or opt for our top of range Vodafone CobraTrak 5 system which has engine inhibit functionality, allowing Vodafone Automotive to safely immobilise a stolen vehicle with Police authorisation.

All Vodafone Automotive’s proactive stolen vehicle systems automatically detect theft even when a thief has taken the vehicle keys.

Upgrade to our Web Location Services (Vodafone CobraTrak Plus only)
The Vodafone CobraTrak Plus service package can also be upgraded* to include the following functionality for a small additional fixed annual fee:

Web based location including:

  • Real time vehicle location via a simple password protected web application
  • Geofence facility allowing alerts to be set relative to vehicle movement in and out of a user definable area (entering, leaving or both)
  • A Self-set Transport Mode when travelling for instance by ferry, or Garage Mode when the vehicle is being serviced avoids generating false alerts

Immobilisers

Where an alarm system is not a requirement by the insurance company but a Thatcham 2 immobiliser is. An Immobiliser provides an engine cut on crank, fuel or ignition.

Key Cloning Theft Protection
An added security feature that enhances your vehicles security by ensuring that the vehicle will not start without an ADR (Auto Driver Recognition) card present.
