In this blog, we will be answering the question ‘Can I install a car alarm myself?” Whilst providing all the information you need on popular after-market security systems we offer which can guarantee the best levels of security available.

Below we will explain to you some information about one of the car alarms we provide, the Pandora Alarm.

What is a Pandora Alarm?

What is a Pandora Alarm?

A Pandora Alarm is an after-market security solution ideal for those who want the best possible protection from thieves.

The Pandora Alarm protects your vehicle from wheel jacking, towing, hijacking and tampering. This is achieved by using not one but two immobilizers, which are electronic devices that stop the car’s engine from starting without the correct key or fob.

Pandora Alarm features

Depending on the model of the Pandora Alarm you choose, you can expect varying features such as:

  • Indoor motion sensors
  • Tilt sensors.
  • Anti-Hijack, which shuts the car engine off safely if the driver retains their Pandora BlueTooth tag in a situation where the car is hijacked from the driver.
  • Extra-strength immobilisation: The extra immobiliser with the Pandora alarm means an additional layer of security, which means thieves will be even more deterred from attempting to steal your vehicle.
  • Next-gen encryption: Everything in the Pandora alarm uses 128-bit encryption. This prevents code-grabbing or relay boosting, ensuring another comprehensive layer of security against thieves.
  • Phone notification: With the ability to customise notifications, you can be notified via call, text, or app alerts as soon as the system detected an incongruency in its environment.
  • Control from afar: Through the app, you can start your car remotely, arm or disarm the alarm system and control your vehicle regardless of where you are. Presenting the future of premium security.
  • Next-generation smart sensors: The Pandora alarm systems come with dual shock, tilt, motion and internal sensors, which will protect your vehicle from wheel jacking, towing and general tampering. Using special algorithms with customisable sensitivity creates a unique sensor which can be adjusted to your needs, meaning your alarm won’t go off over the slightest of movements.
  • Discrete and effective: The only people who will know the location of the device is the vehicle owner (if they choose to know) and the installer. However, even if the device is somehow removed, it will still not allow the vehicle to work.

Can I install a car alarm myself?

It is possible for you to install a car alarm system yourself. Though it isn’t recommended if you have no experience doing it as you may end up damaging your vehicle while installing.

Although you have the option of installing your Pandora Alarm system yourself, you can get in contact with our team for a professional installation.

Here are the crucial reasons why you should get a Pandora Alarm Fitting from us:

  • As it is a discreet device, having us install it in the appropriate place of our choosing will make it undetectable by you and subsequently any potential thieves. (unless you want to know the location.)
  • As trusted and professional installers, we guarantee we will install the device efficiently, not damaging your vehicle or tampering with anything beyond what needs to be altered.
  • We rigorously test our installations so you will have no problems dealing with them in the future.
  • Getting it installed by us allows you to ask any questions directly to our team who have years of installation and usage expertise with the Pandora Alarm.
  • If you have never installed anything manually into your car before you could be doing damage to your vehicle’s systems unintentionally, which could cost a lot of time and money to repair.

A security alternative: The Ghost Immobiliser

The Ghost Immobiliser works by preventing your engine to start unless certain buttons within your car are pressed in a specific sequence, this can be from the steering wheel, the door panel or the central console. This sequence is set by the user & can be changed if needed.

The device is installed in such a way that it can not be seen, so you have the added benefit of stealth which can prevent anyone from trying to tamper with it. The device only takes seconds to use, yet can save you countless hours of looking for your vehicle if it is ever attempted to be stolen.

Additional features of the Ghost Immobiliser:

  • Undetectable by thieves using diagnostics: The Ghost Immobiliser has no circuit cuts, meaning it cannot be detected by modern methods employed by a thief.
  • No radio frequencies: Thieves cannot use sophisticated RF scanning or code-grabbing technology to detect what security device your vehicle has when it does not transmit any signals like conventional security systems.
  • No more key cloning: Due to the personalised PIN you can create with the Ghost Immobiliser, if thieves have cloned keys to your vehicle, it will be impossible for them to start it because they won’t know your PIN code.
  • Tested for each vehicle: Due to the nature of the data bus communication the Ghost Immobiliser has been adapted and tested for every vehicle we list as compatible, click this link to see our list of compatible vehicles.
  • PIN Reset: On the occasion, your pin is forgotten, your car is sold, or a button in your PIN sequence is broken, there is a secure, reset code for each immobiliser. There is also an option to change your pin, whenever you feel like it.
