Thatcham Installers Telford
The MIRRC, fondly known as ‘Thatcham’ owned by the biggest insurance companies in the UK set the highest criteria, Category S7 and then Category S5 being the very highest in protection against theft recovery of vehicles. All our products are fully tested by Thatcham and SGS, making the product fully VCA compliant to all vehicle manufactures as an aftermarket product.
Thatcham Category S7
Category S7 devices have to be monitored by a Secure Control Centre for illegal movements (vehicle moving without the ignition key), disconnection of main vehicle battery. We also monitor battery voltage so if your battery is running low they will contact the customer making them aware.
Thatcham Category S5
Category S5 is the highest Thatcham Category for Vehicle Tracking in the UK. These devices must have the facility to receive an immobilisation command from the Secure Control Centre to stop the vehicle from starting. At Police request only. Key protection is included with the end user having to carry a separate tag when driving the vehicle. If the tag is not present the customer would be called when the vehicle is being driven to confirm the safety of the vehicle.
