Unfortunately car theft has surged in recent years and with it insurance premiums for vehicle most at risk. It is now reported that car thefts have risen by 50 per cent in the last five years, with criminals using high-tech gadgets to steal keyless vehicles.
Staggering DVLA figures reveal 56,288 cars were stolen by criminals in 2019 in the UK which equates to 154 per day or one every nine minutes! These figures shows just how prominent the issue is in this country and why automotive security is so important.

The Autowatch Ghost product is the original aftermarket CAN bus immobiliser, its size means it is easily hidden in your vehicle and complete undetectable. The Ghost immobiliser works by disabling your vehicle until the user enters a defined pin number to disarm the system and allow the engine to start. The pin number is entered using a pre determined sequence of buttons on your dashboard, without the knowledge of this pin the engine will not start.
The Autowatch Ghost-II is now TASSA verified, TASSA is a 3rd party group of industry experts from the police and security testing backgrounds. In order for the immobiliser to be TASSA Approved a number of QR codes are installed in various locations on the vehicle on the chassis and other high value parts so should your vehicle ever get towed or stripped down for parts the OQ codes will enable the police to identify the owner of the vehicle.
