Enhance your car or motorhome security system:
At Automotive Control our Car and Vehicle alarm systems can be designed and installed to suit your specific needs. Listed below are just a few of the accessories that can easily be added on to your alarm system when installed or even at a later date. The reliability of your alarm system will not be jeopardized by installing additional security accessories, but only if installed and correctly set up.
Please note when adding additional sensors to your alarm it is very important to set-up correctly, too sensitive will cause unwanted false alarms and if not sensitive enough you will not achieve the level of protection you should!
Optional sensors and what they do:
Heat Motion / Microwave Sensor
Ideal for cars with a soft top roof, once covertly installed the microwave sensor will create an invisible bubble around the area that it is fitted. This type of sensor is excellent for protecting the living space in motor homes and the rear of vans/HGV vehicles. This type of sensor can be manually turned on/off via a manual switch (perfect for alarms on motorhomes. campers and campervans).
Upon activating your alarm the tilt sensor will set according to the angle in which the vehicle is parked, any change in angle (i.e. vehicle being jacked up) will cause the full alarm to trigger.
Tilt sensors are excellent for protecting expensive alloys wheels. With security systems becoming more advanced it is not uncommon for vehicles to be stolen by it being loaded onto a flat bed truck and driven away, the sensor would trigger a fault alert the moment it detects the tilt, this will hopefully save your vehicle being stolen.
Shock / Impact Sensor
A shock sensor will protect your vehicle from an exterior impact’s, i.e- somebody tampering with your door locks, smashing glass or stealing body parts like spoilers.
The vibration caused upon impact will trigger the alarm into action this gives a high level of preventative security. Multiple sensors can be installed to cover specific areas like a tailgate sensor to protect your car audio equipment or a lone senor will give all round even protection. For large commercial vehicles it is recommended to have more than one shock sensor fitted.
Glass Break Sensors
Dual Prox / Warn Away Chirp System
The dual proximity sensor creates two invisible bubbles (similar to the Heat Motion Sensor) one inside the other outside. If the internal bubble is broken the alarm is triggered.
If the outer bubble is broken (i.e somebody loitering) we can program the alarm to fully trigger or to send off an audible warning chirp. This system can prevent damage to a vehicle in the first instance.
The most common sensors, often standard with most vehicle alarm systems. Mainly used on hard top vehicles not convertibles. If a car window/roof is left down/open it will cause a false alarm (not suitable for convertibles). All doors & windows need to be closed for this system to work without false alarms.
Creating better presence:
Extra flashing lights / LED’s
Additional Comfort Features:
Folding Wing Mirrors
Remote Central Locking (RCL)
Provided your vehicle is fitted with central locking we can electronically wire into the system and operate it from a remote key fob to give you full remote locking.
This can be done using a remote locking device (no alarm) or as part of an alarm system. Some vehicles with factory fitted central locking still need additional parts fitted in order to have RCL operative. Quite common on import vehicles like the Subaru Impreza, Nissan Skyline, Mazda Bongo and Mazda RX-7.
This allows your engine and turbo to cool down after a run. The alarm system can still be activated and doors locked then after a predetermined time (normally 2 minutes) the vehicle will stop and automatically immobiliser itself.
