So what does the TRI Thatcham approval mean? It means we have sat the latest exam put in place by Thatcham, This exam was put in place of VSIB approval due to them going bust some years ago.
I have seen a cheaper alarm will it be as good as a Cobra or Clifford for example? The answer is normally no! Cobra and Clifford put major product development and money into making sure there products are going to last the lifetime of the vehicle and when any company puts an alarm through Thatcham to get it approved it costs around £10,000 to get the full Cat1 or Cat 2-1 approval. How many cheaper alarms do you see on the market that are Thatcham approved and have had major research and engineering to make them as reliable as they are today?
People ask once they have an alarm installed will they get any false alarms, The answer is once a branded alarm has been installed the sensors are auto adjusting so they can't be over sensitive for example years ago the alarms would be adjusted via the installer and if they are set up just a little to high the alarm will go off everytime a loud car or motorbike passes. The only service part on an alarm today would be the bonnet pin this requires a small amount of grease to be added every year to stop it rusting. But on most new cars a bonnet pin is not need due to it picking up the signal from the data network on the car.
If you are worried about your vehicle feel free to give us a call and have a chat about how we can improve your vehicles security.
What alarm is best for your vehicle? We always suggest on later vehicles a Thatcham plip upgrade should be installed on these cars due to the vehicle having a remote fob as standard already. We can fit an alarm that works along side this perfectly and will need no effort from yourself to alarm or disarm the system. This is also a much better way of having an alarm fitted as there is less to go wrong like a customer breaking an alarm fob.
We would suggest Cobra for any plip upgrade alarm due to the alarm being able to be set-up with the vehicle via laptop before the alarm is installed. It will have the make,model and year programmed into the alarm ECU so it matches to your vehicle software perfect with no problems. Once a Cobra system has been fitted it is good enough for the life of the vehicle. We class Cobra alarms in the auto electronic industry as fit and forget alarm systems.
Did you know 40% of cars stolen are never seen again, This is due to stolen to order vehicles being shipped out the UK and vehicles that are stripped down for parts. Trackers are a MUST on the vehicles below due to there high profile of being stolen, Most are taken with the keys so you can act now and get a tracker installed before its stolen. The trackers we can supply and install will even work if your vehicle is put in a steel or lead container.
