Stolen Vehicle Tracking in Crawley | Products

 

Every 20 seconds, a car owner in Europe loses a vehicle to a theft. This frightening statistic shows little sign of diminishing at any time soon. With this in mind, Caterham In-Car Systems supplies a range of stolen vehicle tracking devices to protect motorists in Crawley, Surrey, East Sussex, West Sussex, Kent and the surrounding South East region from potential theft.

 

Modern vehicle tracking systems are the culmination of years of research and development, and represent cutting-edge design and state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques.

An Explanation of Categories 5 and 6 from Thatcham

 

When reading about our products, you will see regular references to Thatcham Category 5 and Thatcham Category 6. Thatcham is a research centre formed in 1969 to contain and reduce the cost of insurance claims. It is also an organisation responsible for managing the alarming rise in vehicle thefts, and continually sets the standards for car security in the UK.

 

Thatcham Category 5 and Thatcham Category 6 offer different levels of security for your car.

 

A Thatcham Category 5 device from our company offers exceptional standards of security to customers in Caterham, Crawley and all surrounding South East areas. Category 5 systems include Level 1 police responses and remote engine immobilisation, driver identification, motion sensors, police or licensed security agreements, street mapping and position data.

 

These devices offer the very best in stolen vehicle tracking performance.

 

Thatcham Category 6 devices do not offer engine immobilisation or driver identification tags but do provide police responses and 24-hour monitoring, street mapping and position data.

 

There is, however, one Category 6 car security product that still offers engine immobilisation and driver identification tags – the Trackstar Category 6 Advance.
