Car alarms offer fantastic protection against potential vehicle damage by a window being broken or doors getting forced open. And also preventing a thief from stealing the vehicle. Its a known fact thefts don't want to make any noise while breaking an entry. Many vehicles in the UK still don't come with an alarm system as factory standard, even if your indicators flash when locking / unlocking your vehicle it doesn't mean your car is protected.
We offer a wide range of Car alarms and systems to suit every budget. Many insurance companies are now requesting you install a Thatcham product in order to maintain your insurance policy. In some cases they won't cover the vehicle for theft unless an approved Thatcham alarm or immobiliser is installed.
Information on Thatcham Alarms
Thatcham Cat 1 : These are simply the best security package if you have a vehicle made before 1996 or a Non Can-Bus vehicle. The system consists of a full alarm system which protects doors, boot, bonnet and the vehicles interior. The system also has a dual cut immobiliser meaning the system can immobilise two electrical components such as the starter motor, fuel pump or ignition. All the wiring on these immobiliser systems are black meaning they make it very difficult for a car thief to try and bypass the immobiliser cuts. The siren which sounds @ 118db has a battery back up inside, this means when the siren is attacked or the wires are cut the siren will continue to sound.
