Have you ever asked 'How Does Ghost Immobiliser Work?' We have created this page to explain the benefits of the Ghost Immobiliser.
Benefits of Ghost Immobilisers
There are many benefits of Ghost Immobilisers, that can help lift the stress of your vehicle being stolen. The Ghost Immobiliser is one of the most advanced and compatible immobilisers available today; it is compatible with almost every vehicle models.
This technology will give your vehicle the utmost security and allow its users to feel safer about leaving their car places. Instead of using keys or fobs, the Ghost Immobiliser uses buttons which are located on the control panel of your vehicle. You can then set your own personal code, and the vehicle's engine will not start unless the code is correct.
If a thief enters your vehicle and tries to start your vehicle, they won't be able to start it without entering your car's unique PIN code straight to the vehicle's control.
It's fully reversible. The good thing about Ghost Immobiliser is it can be installed or removed anytime, connected to the vehicle's (Controller Area Network) CAN.
A customised PIN that is generated uniquely for you. The PIN is unique, and it has a private sequence which only will be given to you. This has to be pressed on the bottom of your steering wheel or dashboard.
The unique PIN code is created using the steering wheel and vehicle's button control panels; the unique pin can be changed anytime you want. The pin protects against Key Cloning/Key theft/ Keyless entry, making it impossible to start the vehicle without the PIN being first entered.
Quick and User-friendly
This is by far the most synoptic car security available and is extremely user-friendly. The PIN you choose is unique for you, so it's simple for you to remember, if you forget your PIN, an engineer will give you a card which contains a recovery PIN, just scratch it and reset the PIN.
Ghost immobilisers directly communicated with ECU on the data bus to immobilise the car. The device is weatherproof and compact so that you can combine it into the mechanism of the vehicle, which makes it impossible to detect.
The fact that the silent operation feature makes the Ghost Immobiliser impossible to detect means that thieves won't be able to identify it, which is an important benefit.
Engine Start Blocking
Until the user enters the PIN, the Auto watch Immobiliser stops starting of your car. Even if they have the keys, they won't be able to start the engine. This features rules out the chance of thieves cloning your keys and being able to drive your car away.
Thieves often use the Radio Frequency Scanners for detecting any fitted security inside it. The Ghost Immobiliser do not detect radio-frequency or transmit any signal.So its undetectable.
By using diagnostic reading devices, organised car thief groups can detect circuit cuts. But the Ghost Immobiliser do not involve circuit cuts; therefore, practically it's again undetectable.
You can keep your vehicle on service mode if you are giving it someone else to drive or sending the car for servicing. This ensures a higher level of security for your vehicle, and also means you won't have to keep disarming the alarm system.
Uses Controller Area Network Bus
CAN is a network system that uses different devices to be able to communicate with each other. It has become a popular system used by many vehicle companies due to its high standards and many advantages.
Using the Controller Area Network Bus (CAN) means there is a low likelihood of the Immobiliser being found and also reversible/simple installation.
What is a Ghost Alarm?
We understand how big of a worry car thieves are for many people, which is why the ghost alarm system gives people peace of mind. The ghost alarm system can get an exact location of the whereabouts of your vehicle if it is ever lost or stolen, and will send it to your mobile phone.
If you are ever having your car serviced, repaired or anything else that would require someone else driving the vehicle, then you can switch the mode of the Immobiliser. This means you won't have to tell anyone else your pin, so your vehicle is even more secure.
Is Ghost Immobiliser Insurance approved?
The Ghost Immobiliser has been TASSA (The Tracking and Aftermarket Security System Association) accredited. This means it is recognised by large official companies, including insurance companies.
TASSA uses police and security experts who are professionally trained and qualified in testing and approving products used for security purposes.
How Long does it Take to Fit a Ghost Immobiliser?
The process of fitting a Ghost Immobiliser is usually dependent on the type of vehicle. This is because different vehicle manufacturers work in their own way. However, usually, it takes a few hours to fit, so it won't take up too much of your day.
Also, the Ghost Immobiliser doesn't have any effect on the vehicle itself, so it can be uninstalled and reinstalled on as many vehicles as you like, with no signs of damage or wear and tear. Sometimes, you may be asked to remove your Ghost Immobiliser temporarily, if your vehicle needs to be serviced, as it may cause problems with the diagnostic equipment.
