Cat 5 Car Trackers

What is a Thatcham Category 5 Tracking system?

Cat 5 Tracking Systems

Installation of Cat 5 Tracking Systems should be carried out by a Thatcham Recognised Installer.

Without the keys, the majority of modern cars are much harder to steal and beyond the abilities of all but the most sophisticated thieves. How the criminals respond, have been to focus on stealing the keys in order to steal the car.

To tackle the new trend of key theft, Thatcham are continually working with the police and other partners to develop a range of technologies, one of which led to the introduction of the Thatcham Category 5 Criteria for after theft recovery systems. This system involves automatic driver recognition ( also known as ADR cards/fobs ) & vehicle immobilisation which can only be authorised by UK Police force under certain theft conditions.

These criteria allows 5 Cat 5 Tracking Systems to be fitted to vehicles & will have a direct effect on vehicle crime. It is not only the device in the vehicle that is subject to the criteria. For the first time, a Thatcham Category applies to the entire system – design, installation, maintenance and operation, with quality and security requirements being set and audited at every level. A Cat 5 Tracking Systems is one of a number of categories that Thatcham have defined as the highest Class of vehicle security tracking systems.

Cat 5 – Gps/Gsm tracking vehicle tracking system including automatic driver recognition cards & vehicle immobilisation.

Cat 5plus – Gps/Gsm/VHF vehicle tracking system including driver I.D cards & vehicle immobilisation.
