There are lots of different car alarm systems that are suitable for different vehicles and different people. Someone who parks their car in a garage every night but on a main road during the day will require a different alarm to someone who parks their car in a high risk area. Some people install a car alarm to get a reduction on their insurance. Some insurance companies will insist on an alarm in some cars before they are able to insure the vehicle. These are usually Thatcham approved alarms which include a certificate of installation which we can supply.
If you are interested in a car alarm with central locking we can supply and fit these, alternatively we can also fit remote central locking without a car alarm.

what alarm would we recommend?
At Enhance we are a specialist car alarm company, and only recommend and install good quality products.
Depending on your requirements, the two alarms that we would recommend are either Pandora Alarms or an AutoWatch alarm.
is the alarm thatcham approved?
The Autowatch 695 alarm is a Thatcham approved CAT 2-1 upgrade alarm system, designed to be used on full CAN Bus, semi CAN Bus or conventional wiring systems.
The 695CAN alarm can be fitted to any compatible new vehicle that requires an alarm.
This system is designed to be easily operated from the vehicles original remote controls without the use of an additional remote control. However, if your vehicle has only one remote control supplied as standard, adding an additional Autowatch remote control will prove more cost effective than buying an original remote control.
Why install a can bus alarm?
With vehicles becoming more difficult for thieves to steal, they are now breaking in, to steal accessories such as navigation systems, mobile phones and car-kits, radar detectors, stereos and any other items that they may find valuable.
Most people assume that because they can lock their car with a remote, they automatically have an alarm system. This is not the case. From 1997, an EU law was passed to make the fitting of an immobiliser, mandatory. However this was not applicable to alarm systems. More than 75% of vehicles sold, do not come with an alarm as standard. So, the onus of securing the vehicle is your responsibility.
The Autowatch 695 CAN alarm system is insurance approved. Most insurance companies now require a Thatcham approved alarm and may offer you a discount for having an approved system fitted.
how much is an autowatch 695?
The cost for the alarm Supplied and Fitted is £360 (vehicles after 2004)
This price includes VAT, mobile installation within Kent and a year warranty.
