As vehicle security experts, we regularly have customers coming to us who wish to upgrade their vehicle security. One of the questions we are frequently asked is this: are Pandora Alarms any good?
Well, we will outline the key features of Pandora Alarms in this article, to help you make an informed decision about whether this security device is right for you.
What is a Pandora Alarm?
Pandora Alarms are one of the best anti-theft devices that you can buy for your vehicle. It is a car alarm and security system which protects your car from wheel jacking, towing, tampering and hijacking.
Pandora is renowned for being one of the most advanced and experienced car alarm manufacturers in the world, as their products use the very best technology to guarantee safety for your car.
The Pandora Alarm is fitted with the strongest immobilization possible; it comes with a minimum of two immobilisers, which are electronic devices that stop the car from starting without the correct key or fob.
If a thief tries to steal the car by using the wrong key or fob, it activates the immobiliser, which tells the engine not to start. Even if the Pandora Alarm is somehow removed, your vehicle will remain immobile.
According to Pandora engineers, it will be almost 20 years before the technology exists which can crack the encryption of this alarm. That is great news for car enthusiasts who wish to keep their pride and joy out of the hands of criminals.
Pandora Alarms are not just about security. From your smartphone or any of your handheld devices, you can change your car’s settings, adjust sensors or view status information such as battery voltage.
No matter where you are in the world, you can use your Pandora Alarm to control your vehicle – in case you need to arm or disarm it, immobilize it or remotely start it.

So, are Pandora Alarms any good?
We are of the firm conviction that a Pandora Alarm is a must-have security device for your vehicle. That is because the Pandora Alarm offers unbeatable protection, to keep your vehicle safe from the most professional of thieves.
These days, criminals are using a highly advanced method called keyless car theft (also called relay theft). Here, the criminals can steal a car, without even using the owner’s car keys. All they need is a high-tech electronic device to copy the signal which is emitted from the owner’s car keys, while the car is parked outside the house.
After copying the signal from the keys, the criminals can then manipulate the car engine into starting, because the vehicle believes the real car keys are present. The criminals can then drive the car away, almost silently, in as little as 60 seconds.
It is very sinister to think about, keyless car crime is on the rise in the UK. Cars with keyless technology are twice as likely to be stolen, with the vehicle theft rate rising to an average of 279 cars stolen every day.
Fortunately, there is a solution which can protect your vehicle from keyless car theft: the Pandora Alarm. This anti-theft device offers every possible feature for the ultimate protection for your car.
Everything in a Pandora Alarm uses 128-bit encryption. This prevents code-grabbing or relay boosting, so there is superior security all around, with no easy way around the system.
As you can see, the Pandora Alarm is one of the only security systems which adequately protects against the scariest, high-tech methods employed by professional thieves.
Where can I get a Pandora Alarm?
Offering unbreakable security for your vehicle, Pandora Alarms provide fantastic protection against hijacking and keyless entry.
Ranging from £499.99 to £1,350.00, there are different Pandora Alarms to choose from. The security system boasts a loud, reliable siren, so you (and your neighbours) will be able to hear the sound if the alarm is activated. What’s more, the Pandora system notifies you via a smartphone app if a thief tries to break into your car.
The Pandora Alarm also offers remote starting, arming and disarming, so you can command and control your vehicle at any given time, wherever you are.
With dual shock, tilt, motion and internal sensors, the Pandora Alarm protects your vehicle from wheel jacking, towing and general tampering.
Additionally, every Pandora Alarm comes with a minimum of two immobilisers, which keep your vehicle immobile and are undetectable by thieves.
