New form of Bluetooth - anti-theft

May 30 2006

Bluetooth wireless technology from the British has found a new life. It was the basis for a new generation of anti-theft system auto-txt, based on satellite navigation and Global System Mobile Communication (GSM).

The system was developed by RDM Group, and it works on the one hand, it is extremely simple. Identification of the vehicle owner is on his mobile phone, of course, a module equipped with Bluetooth.

When you try to start the vehicle system checks the unique PIN-code phone number or identification number of another device such as a PDA via a Bluetooth connection with your own data. Only after the procedure, "recognizing" the owner of the car can start moving.

When the car is left for some time, automatically activates the locking system, and when we tried to hijack a corresponding signal is transmitted to the remote operations center security. Auto-txt also blocks the re-start the engine after the hijacking.

In addition, due to satellite navigation is always possible to track moving car. And not just in Britain, where sales started anti-theft system, but also in the 27 EU countries. If necessary, the vehicle can be powered off with the remote control center.

Auto-txt-first of its kind alarm system, which has been certified to Category 5 (the standard is recognized by police as the highest degree of protection), a leading European institute to develop methods to protect the car against theft - the independent testing center Thatcham.

It is worth noting that the auto-txt ready to adopt such well-known corporations, as Jaguar and Land Rover, is planned to equip its future cars that system under its own brand - Jaguar Watch and Land Rover Watch.

Auto-txt - this is only one solution based on Bluetooth technology in the field of anti-theft systems, and RDM Group does not intend to stop there.

Is the system, of course, European-expensive (especially considering the starting price of "toys" - about $ 600) and beautiful, but there is always a chance of losing or breaking the phone. Particularly unpleasant to be at the same time in some godforsaken corner, where satellite navigation and a little help.
