Alarm Addition - the Car Defender

Did you know that most modern cars are often stolen by professional thieves, using keyless technology to steal cars parked on owners’ driveways – vehicles with keyless entry and start systems are twice as likely to be stolen!

As well as cars being stolen, many people keep expensive bikes in their garage and these are high value items often specifically targeted by professional thieves.

What can you do to avoid becoming another statistic?

Prevention is the best policy to avoid becoming another statistic.

You can: • Check the car is definitely locked before walking away • Invest in a faraday pouch and pop your keys in it, this can block the key’s signal for keyless start vehicles • Get video surveillance for your home that overlooks where your car is parked • Keep any valuables inside the vehicle out of sight • Install the Pyronix CarDefender!

Pyronix has come out with a great addition to it's alarm system, the Car Defender. It's got a range of features :

  1. Selectable detection modes - Tilt only, Shock only or Tilt and Shock together. Once it's been professionally installed, users can easily choose what option they'd like.

  2. Universal Mounting -The device comes with a specially designed, brightly-coloured silicone rubber mount, allowing users to strap it to a vehicle’s steering wheel for reliability and visual deterrence. Alternatively, the device can be secured with the included 3M tape for a wide variety of use cases.

  3. The 10 minute safety feature -Once users have selected their chosen settings, these are locked-in after a period of 10 minutes. This feature stops users accidentally changing the settings and potentially invalidating the device. Once locked, the settings can only be changed by opening and closing the device to enable another window for set up.

  4. Back to home feature - The CarDefender secures vehicles within home range of the control panel*. Where the vehicle has left the home range and later returned, the device’s supervision will reset after 5 minutes or the user can reset it manually by pressing the B2H button on the device, which is the recommended method. The device will indicate signal strength with a flashing LED; green indicates good signal strength and red suggests poor.

  5. Vehicle protection - The CarDefender has been developed to combat vehicle theft, (particularly keyless) offering a new line of defence to deter intruders by raising the house alarm in the event of an attempted theft. Users are given early warning, allowing them to take action as soon as possible, where previously, the theft may have gone unnoticed for some time.

  6. Conformally Coated PCB material - The CarDefender’s PCB is conformally coated, so it can be used in changeable environments*, making it ideal for bikes, vans or trailers too.

*As the device is not IP rated, it is not recommended for harsh, wet conditions or environments where it is exposed to the elements.
