How does an Autowatch Ghost Immobiliser work?
The Autowatch Ghost Immobiliser is a trusted device for responsible vehicle owners as they are confident in its ability to protect them from carjacking. It is discreet and unrecognisable to thieves, they will be unable to distinguish if there is a device installed, or where the location is. It doesn’t have any LED indicators and operates silently using the on-board CAN data network.
The Ghost Immobiliser works by creating a sequence that must be entered before the car starts. The PIN code is unique to the driver and can be up to 20 actions long. The pin consists of actions inside the car including on the steering wheel door panels and dashboard. Until the PIN code is entered in full and correctly, the engine will not start. There is no need to set it each time you exit the vehicle, the device sets automatically.
