Due to the high volume of vehicle theft, through techniques (such as ‘relay crime’) insurance providers are asking owners to be more proactive in protecting their vehicles. Many providers offer a reduction in the price of your insurance policy when installing a car tracker. However, depending on the make and model of your vehicle, it may be the case that they simply will not insure you for theft if you do not have a tracker installed.
The good news is that once your car tracker is installed you will then have the most proactive and absolute best car security available. From tamper alerts, motion alerts to a 24/7 fully staffed control room and even global coverage, insurance approved trackers are designed with vehicle protection and lightning quick recovery in mind.
You can even protect against key theft and keyless entry theft by opting for the CAT 5 / S5 Tracker. This comes with DRS (Driver Recognition System) as standard. Even if a thief steals your keys and starts the ignition, an instant alert is raised in the control room if they do not have the DRS tag with them to identify them as an authorised driver. The control room can then send the police straight to the location of the vehicle.
All CAT 5 and S5 tracker models have DRS as standard, however, if you do not necessarily need all the bells and whistles of a CAT 5/S5 then you can opt for the Smartrack Protector Pro Global W/DRS
