The Autowatch Ghost Immobiliser is a very popular CANBUS aftermarket vehicle security device. It is often recommended as it protects your vehicle from key cloning, hacking and key theft.
The Ghost Immobiliser fitting is completed inside your vehicle discreetly. It has no key-fobs or LED indicators to give away the location to potential thieves
Is a Ghost Immobiliser Fitting Worth it?
The Ghost Immobiliser fitting usually costs a one-off upfront purchase of £450, which although is a lot of money – if you have a luxury, expensive vehicle at risk of being stolen, the protection of it is priceless.
With vehicle thefts at an-all time high in 2020, more and more people are turning to methods to help them have full peace of mind that they will not fall victim to an empty driveway.
The Ghost Immobiliser works by allowing you to create a unique, private pin code that must be entered inside the car before the engine starts. No matter what, unless the correct pin code is entered, the car remains stationary and unusable. The pin code, just like a credit card, can be up to 20 presses long. The ghost immobiliser used buttons such as those on the steering wheel, door panel or centre console to make a disarm sequence that the thieves will never figure out.
One the Ghost Immobiliser fitting has been completed; you also get access to a smartphone app that can be used in place of the code if you prefer. However, this does come with some risk, as if your phone is in range (5m-10m) the ghost immobiliser will be disarmed.
