Since the early 2000’s vehicle thefts of motorhomes and caravans have seen a steady decline due to the growth in GPS and Stolen Vehicle Tracking technology. However, in 2015, the National Vehicle Crime Intelligence Service (NVCIS) reported a 20% increase in the amount of caravans stolen in the UK in comparison to 2014.
This was the first time a significant rise in thefts had been reported for more than a decade, and highlights the need for the highest levels of security protection for motorhomes and caravans. Protect your motorhome with our Vodafone Protect & Connect systems, which utilise Vodafone
Automotive’s 40+ years experience in vehicle security and telematics to bring you the latest theft tracking and connected vehicle technology.
Vodafone Vehicle Defence is our newest Stolen Vehicle Solution and gives you the ideal compact, cost-effective solution to recovering your caravan.
- Tow-Away Alert – This alert is triggered when motion is detected by the system with the vehicle ignition switched off and helps to alert the owner if the vehicle is being towed away without their knowledge.
- Tamper Alert – The tamper alert feature activates when the system battery is disconnected or discharged or the wiring is cut. This feature immediately alerts Vodafone Automotive that the Protect & Connect 6 system is being tampered with in a potential theft.
- GSM Jamming Alert – ‘GSM jammers’ are devices that can block the GPS signal from tracking devices in an attempt to stop the vehicle’s location from being monitored or detected. Vodafone Protect & Connect 6 automatically sends a jamming alert when an attempt is made to jam the GSM signal and triggers the alert.
