Car Alarms

We are able to supply and fit, supply only or fit only.

If you are buying an alarm for your car we would recommend that unless you are a competent auto electrician, it should be left to a professional, especially if the alarm has an immobiliser which requires complex connections to be made to the fuel pump, ignition or starter motor circuits.

We are able to ensure the warranty is valid if the alarm fails due to any manufacturing defect. If you install an alarm yourself the can sometimes void the warranty and any guarantees from the manufacturer.

In the UK, a Thatcham car alarm installation is approved by motor insurance companies and by fitting a Thatcham security system you will benefit from cheaper insurance as well as having a very secure, best quality alarm system. After fitting a Thatcham security system the car alarm installer will issue a Thatcham certificate which must be presented to your motor insurer.

If you do not require an insurance approved security system and you are a competent auto electrician then DIY car alarm installation is an option. Some security systems are designed for self installation and come with car alarm fitting instructions.

Someone who parks their car in a garage every night but on a main road during the day will require a different alarm to someone who parks their car in a high risk area.

These are usually Thatcham approved alarms which include a certificate of installation which we can supply.
