The Ghost-II has an innovative mechanism of engine lockout that uses the data network on the vehicle so that there is minimal additional wiring that can be easily found. Disarming the Ghost-II is done using a sequence of buttons inside the vehicle using the standard buttons.
This state-of-the-art system is the next generation in immobiliser technology in that it is a preventive system rather than a recovery-based system and is approved by a number of insurance companies.
Prevent the starting of the engine unless the unique user-defined disarm sequence has been entered first.
A modern thief can use diagnostics to detect circuit cuts on modern vehicles. The Ghost-II has no circuit cuts so it cannot be found using these methods.
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.
The use of the CAN data bus has several advantages including low risk during installation, low probability of detection, and allowing for placement almost anywhere in the vehicle.
Because the unit communicates with the ECU on the data bus to immobilise the vehicle there is no way a thief could listen for the tell-tale clicking of a traditional immobiliser relay.
A thief cannot simply add a new key or replace an ECU to bypass the Ghost-II and start the vehicle. Only the correct personalised disarm sequence will allow the engine to start.
The Ghost-II is a sealed unit and so small it can be installed and wrapped into the vehicle harness anywhere in the vehicle making it near impossible for a thief to find.
If the PIN code is forgotten, the car is sold, or a button is broken, then there is a secure, unique reset code for each device.
