Our Vehicle Tracking System(VTS) that comes with a GPS/GSM and several other optional add-ons now also has a new option of a vehicle immobilizer.
The vehicle immobilizer works as an on/off switch and can be coupled with other options such as geo-fencing, manual operation etc.
So for example, if the immobilizer is activated and coupled with the geo-fencing module the vehicle will shut itself off as soon as the vehicle leaves the polygon geo-fence defined as boundary for that vehicle. This is specifically useful for vehicle that are expected to follow routes and the vehicles stray from the allowed area.
It is possible for a trained mechanic to by-pass the immobilizer, but it will certainly require thorough knowledge of the vehicle electrical system as well as a lot of time in order to by pass it.
Ofcourse a vehicle that is supposed to be stationery using an immobilizer but continues to move will generate a level 4 alert in the system and the built-in power backup of our VTS will instantly report the alerts to the fleet managers.
Please write to us to know more about our immobilizer attachments for our Vehicle Tracking System.
