CAR PROTECTION IN THE WEST MIDLANDS

Keyless Entry Car Theft

What Do I Need to Know

Keyless car theft has been described as an “epidemic” by the West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner David Jamieson.

Also, according to a study by Tracker, 96% of the cars recovered last year were taken without the physical keys, which is an increase of 86% compared to 2018 figures.

This shows the true extent of the problem, making it the preferred and chosen method for criminals who are stealing cars.

Watch the video below to understand why!

How do keyless entry cars work?

A keyless entry car allows you to enter your car without having to unlock with your keys. If your keys are on your person, the car door automatically opens and allows you to start. Introduced for convenience by car manufacturers, the technology works using short-range radio waves.

The key in your pocket or bag transmits a signal that is picked up by a receiver in your car, allowing it to unlock and start if the correct signal is received. If it does not recognise the signal, it will not open.

Are keyless cars easier to steal - can thieves unlock your car remotely?

Keyless cars are increasingly easy to steal, unfortunately. With the technology available, professional thieves have developed their methods to be able to steal a car with ease and silently, usually taking under 60 seconds. Keyless entry on cars is a convenience to drivers but leaves the car open to be exploited by criminals.

How do thieves break into keyless cars?

Car thieves operate relay attacks by working in pairs. One of two thieves stands close to the house, while the other waits by the car. The box then relays the signal from the key inside the house to reach the car. This makes the car thinks this is the driver and unlocks the car ready to start.

How can I protect my keyless car from being stolen?

There are a few different options in terms of protecting your car.

The Ghost Vehicle Immobiliser is our recommended device to give maximum protection to your car from key-cloning, hacking and even key theft. With the unique sequence having to be entered before your car will start, thieves will have no way of starting the car which will confuse them and also give more chance of them being caught in the act by you or the police.

Faraday safe boxes or RFID Blocker wallets are purpose-built to block radio signals, so will stop the thieves from using the relay method and picking up the signal for outside your house. The issue is remembering to put it safely inside every night, as it is only protecting the keys if they are in it.

Physical deterrents on the car such as a steering lock or wheel clamp are likely to put thieves off targeting your vehicle as it will take more time for them to remove than one without.

It is also worth considering having a vehicle tracker fitted. Car Theft Solutions can install a tracker whether for personal or commercial use. There are several options including only tracking when the main driver is not in the vehicle or on-demand as and when you need it.

Is the Ghost Immobiliser Insurance Approved?

We are pleased to announce that the Ghost2 car Immobiliser is TASSA (Tracker and Aftermarket security systems association) approved, providing full reassurance that it is a worthwhile investment and the best choice to give you full protection of your new vehicle.

All Ghost immobilisers that are installed after the 1st of March will automatically receive TASSA approval certification. Car Theft Solutions are an approved TASSA installer, complying with all the relevant regulations to ensure your car immobiliser is installed to the highest standard.

What is TASSA?

TASSA is a Governing body which tests and certify vehicle security products. TASSA installation companies need to pass a series of checks such as including CRB checks and identity checks on engineers who install security devices.

TASSA uses factual evidence of their approved products effectiveness taken from official research figures of vehicle theft records and have evolved from working closely with the UK’s police forces.

TASSA Registered companies demonstrate the commitment to making a difference in the industry by third-party approval. By following agreed criteria for system installations, we can give confidence to our customers, insurers, and law enforcement that systems installed are done so safely and correctly, in line with the product manufacturers guidence.

Will it lower my insurance costs?

Yes! Having a vehicle immobiliser or tracker is likely to reduce your insurance premium in most cases.

Improving your car's security will help to lower the risk of it being damaged or stolen, so when renewing your insurance, by mentioning you have a TASSA approved car immobiliser, most companies will apply a discount. Many agree that it is worth the small upfront Ghost Immobiliser Cost if in the long run, you have lower premiums and peace of mind that your car will not be stolen, especially if high value. Insurers can also access the TASSA approved database to check the device you have installed.

How does it work?

Ghost immobiliser is installed at your home or workplace by a specialist technician. Connected to your vehicle’s Can-Bus system, the device immobilises the engine by communicating with the ECU and can only be deactivated by entering a unique PIN code.

Thanks to Ghost immobiliser not using radio frequency signals or key fobs, it’s impossible for it to be bypassed using any kind of theft method. It is undetectable using diagnostics. It also has no LED indicator to give away its location and operates silently using the on-board CAN data network, guaranteeing ultimate security 24/7.

Access for the owner is very simple and achieved by entering the PIN code into existing buttons on the steering wheel or dashboard. You can change the PIN to a secure number of your choice. Also the device has a Service/Valet Mode meaning that this security code is never compromised, even when the car is undergoing its MOT or being professionally valeted.

Essentially, this is chip and pin for your vehicle, with the option to set a code up to 20 buttoins if desired.

Connecting to your vehicle without using radio frequencies or a key fob, Ghost immobiliser is completely undetectable. To disarm, the owner simply enters their unique PIN code into existing buttons on the steering wheel, dashboard. You can change this PIN and compose a new one up to 20 digits long depending on your preference, plus a secure emergency code is provided in the event of you forgetting the code and needing to reset it.

With Ghost immobiliser, there is no LED indicator, noise or frequency to give away its presence. Instead, the system silently uses the on-board CAN data network to keep your vehicle protected against thieves around the clock.

As for regular vehicle maintenance, the handy Service/Valet Mode allows you to keep your car, van or lorry safe during its MOT or whilst being professionally cleaned.
