Thatcham Cat 2 Device Installed

Our mobile installation service means that we can provide a Thatcham Cat 2 device installed for Hampshire and West Sussex areas, including Southampton, Guildford, Chichester, Basingstoke, and Portsmouth.

Car immobilisers stop a car from starting easily without the key. There are two reasons to have these systems fitted firstly because your insurance company has insisted on it, and secondly because you as a car owners wish to provided protection for your asset.

It is expected by all insurance companies in the UK that vehicles have at least a Cat 2 immobiliser fitted. New vehicles, produced for the UK market, usually have this fitted at the time of manufacture and therefore already have the minimum level of protection. This may not be the case with older vehicles, individual builds or special types of vehicles. In these instances we can provide a Thatcham Cat 2 device for insurance purposes. We provide two Category 2 immobiliser systems the touch key and Sterling Excel transponder, and in most cases the choice between these two devices is dictated by the vehicle. For example older vehicles that have not got a factory transponder as standard can choose either, however touch key is the only option in some newer vehicles and for cars that do have a factory transponder already installed.

We also provide the excellent Ghost Immobiliser from Autowatch specifically designed for CANBus and keyless entry vehicles. This non-insurance product relies on drivers using buttons already in the vehicle to deactivate the immobiliser. It uses no tags or radio frequency communication and a potential thief will not know that it is fitted. This system can also be used via an iPhone App for automatic deactivation on entering the vehicle.

We are a mobile installation company for the South and are Thatcham TRI and MESF accredited. We can provide a new car immobiliser fitted, Basingstoke, Guildford, Worthing, Portsmouth, Southampton, West Sussex and Hampshire areas.

It is important to understand what it is that your insurance company is asking for:

If they require a Cat 5 tracking system then there is only one option.

If they require a Cat 1 immobiliser then a full Category 1 alarm system is necessary.
