Universal CANBus Alarm System
A Thatcham approved CAT 2-1 upgrade alarm system, designed to be used on full CANBus, semi CANBus or conventional wiring systems. The alarm can be fitted to any compatible vehicle that requires an alarm.
This system is designed to be easily operated from the vehicle’s original remote controls without the use of an additional remote control. However, if your vehicle has only one remote control supplied as standard, adding a remote control will prove more cost effective than buying an original remote.
The alarm is the ideal system for new Motorhomes, with the added benefit of incorporating 2-zone wireless sensors for internal protection and for external load compartments.
This product is insurance approved. Most insurance companies now require a Thatcham approved alarm and may offer you a discount for having an approved system fitted.
What is CANBus?
CANBus is a data communications protocol where data is used to control and monitor the functionality of control systems on modern vehicles. CAN – which stands for “Controller Area Network” – is used by many vehicle manufacturers to increase reliability and reduce component costs, power consumption and weight. It therefore offers better fuel consumption and improved vehicle diagnostics.
Why install a CANBus alarm?
With vehicles becoming more difficult for thieves to steal, they are now breaking in to steal accessories such as navigation systems, mobile phones, car-kits, radar detectors, stereos and any other items of value. Most people assume that, because they can lock their car with a remote, they automatically have an alarm system. This is not the case.
From 1997, an EU law was passed to make the fitting of an immobiliser mandatory. However, this was not applicable to alarm systems. More than 50% of vehicles sold do not come with an alarm as standard, so the onus of securing the vehicle is your responsibility.
