Categories: ,


Are you fed up with your standard alarm or the limitations of your car alarm or do you have  a new car with no car alarm. Before your only solutions was to stick with your standard alarm or have an aftermarket alarm fitted from your local dealer using seperate controls because of CAN technology on new cars. 

Controller Area Network
CAN is a standardized communication protocol used by automakers to control the vehicle’s electronic systems.

The compatibility between analog (hard wired) security systems and cars using CAN protocol dramatically decreases as automakers continue to adopt CAN.

Issues with hardwired analog systems:
Difficult to install new security systems on new cars
Increased install time
High risk of Damage to car’s electronics
No certain success

Interface with CANBUS is the FUTURE of Security and Convenince.

New CANBUS enabled systems from Clifford add full security to the factory keyless entry system. Clifford CANBUS security upgrade systems are vehicle specific. They are programmed with vehicle specific firmware that communicates directly with the OEM CANBUS system to monitor and interact with the electronic functions of the vehicle.

Three hardware platforms cover the three types of CANBUS systems currently in use by OEM vehicle makers; FT, SW, and HS. Directed’s CANBUS systems use certified CAN transceivers to insure accurate communications without data collision and work seamlessly with all factory electronics. Directed systems do not use “bit bang” data messages on the OEM bus.

Clifford CANBUS security systems use the OEM keyless entry remote to control arm and disarm via the vehicle’s CANBUS system, communicating with the vehicle via ultra secure, high-speed digital data.*

Clifford CANBUS security systems are all Remote Start compatible and can be used to activate a 561T remote start module.
*(Some features not available on all vehicles)

CANBUS allows the system to communicate with the vehicle via high speed digital data, through either a single wire or a twisted pair, which ensures a robust connection with minimal wiring connections to the vehicle.
Connection to the CANBUS system eliminates the need for many of the analog connections necessary in traditional, hard-wired, security systems.
CANBUS communicates with most of the electronic security and convenience systems throughout the vehicle, so the alarm remains in-sync with the vehicle at all times.

When the vehicle is equipped with a factory security system, it works in sync with Clifford CANBUS security system and all factory functionality is retained.


Because they are compatible with most late model vehicles, Cliffordd CANBUS systems are ideal for New Car Dealers.

The CANBUS interface eliminates most analog connections required by conventional security systems, so installation and set-up in most vehicles is significantly quicker and easier than a conventional hard-wired systems.
To programming the CANBUS security system to the car, you simply turn on the ignition switch after the CANBUS wires are connected and wait 5 seconds for the LED to flash. NO door lock or parking light programming is necessary.
Horn Honk Output can be used instead of the Siren for stealth, OEM-style installations.

Fast installation time and perfect interface with OEM keyless entry makes CANBUS security ideal for New car dealers.
