With Halloween creeping up, the only ghoul you will want on your property and inside your vehicle will be the Ghost Immobiliser.
To get to grips with an immobiliser it is a system that stops a vehicle’s engine from starting unless the correct key (or other token) is present. From 1988, every car sold in the UK legally had to have a factory immobiliser fitted – so gone are the days of “hot wiring”. However, thieves know that they only have to find one weakness in any type of vehicle, and they can exploit this endlessly to steal as many of the same vehicle as possible.
Introducing the Ghost Immobiliser…. the world’s first aftermarket Can Bus Immobiliser, which improves a vehicle’s current immobiliser system by adding a unique code, which can be inputted using buttons on the steering wheel, door panels, or centre console. The PIN code sequence must first be entered before the vehicle can be driven – Spooky! The only way a ghastly crook could get their claws on your vehicle is if they physically tow it away, but then they will never be able to drive it!
Vehicle brands including Audi, BMW, Ford, Vauxhall, Mercedes, Hyundai, Honda, Nissan, and VW are compatible with the Ghost Immobiliser, as it works on a Can Bus System. A Can Bus (Controller Area Network), is designed to allow microcontrollers and devices to communicate with each other in applications without a host computer. Nodes or Electronic Control Units (ECU) are connected via the CAN Bus – the central nervous centre of your vehicle.
There are no visible signs that the small Ghost Immobiliser has been fitted – like its name suggest it ‘disappears’ and cannot be detected. It uses an already present light on the dashboard, for example, a service light or indicator.
You can also pair your iPhone to the Ghost with an application that allows you to get in your car and drive off without having to enter the PIN code.
