Alarm Grades: (4 types)

1) Thatcham Category 1 (Cat 1)

This is the most comprehensive category and is for systems that comprise both an alarm and an immobiliser. Fitting a ‘Cat 1′ vehicle security alarm will qualify you for the maximum insurance discount. A ‘Cat 1′ will sometimes be the minimum insurance requirement for sports and high performance vehicles.

2) Thatcham Category 2-1 Upgrade

This means that if you already have a ‘Cat 2′ approved immobiliser fitted to your car. You can upgrade to full ‘Cat 1′ status with a 2-1 alarm. Most UK registered cars from 2002 were factory fitted with an immobiliser system, please call for vehicle compatibility.

3) Canbus 2-1 Thatcham upgrade

Specifically designed for vehicles with full can bus wiring, normally only found in cars manufactured after 2003. To be compatible your vehicle must have factory fitted remote central locking. Please call to see if your car is canbus alarm compatible.

4) Non-Thatcham

A non-thatcham alarm will not qualify for any insurance discounts or approval, However, still a formidable security system not to be underestimated. Non-insurance approved vehicle alarm systems can be easily customised, many features can be added on to create a high quality security system. Please see Security accessories.

After automotive control fitted my new car alarm system they gave me a full demonstration showing me exactly how to operate it, the engineer even showed me how to test the system myself to make sure it stays in good working order.
