S5 systems – Vehicle Tracking with an ADR card but no immobilisation cut
The entry level for vehicle tracking is the Thatcham accredited S5 (this replaces the Category 5). This system includes an ADR card (Automatic Driver Card), this means that if the vehicle has been scanned via a device to be stolen without the keys, it will alert the tracking company that the vehicle is moving without the ADR card being within it. The system will then send a signal to the monitoring centre, who will in turn contact you to see if you are aware the vehicle is moving, and if, in the event the car should not be moving, the monitoring centre will begin to track the vehicle and alert the necessary authorities.
The systems we supply offer 24/7 theft monitoring, are fully supported by the Police, use GNSS (GPS, GLONASS & Galileo) satellite technology to provide accuracy especially in built up areas, they offer European Coverage, multiple theft alert triggers and are all insurance approved.

S5+ systems – Vehicle Tracking with an ADR card and Immobilisation cut
This system includes all of the features above but with an additional feature of Immobilisation.

This feature significantly increases the chances of the vehicle being recovered without damage and reduces the need for high speed Police pursuit of stolen vehicles.
