The Autowatch Ghost is the next generation of in-vehicle protection and is the world’s first aftermarket CAN bus immobiliser. The Autowatch Ghost Immobiliser is one of the best car security devices available on the market and provides first-rate protection against key cloning, key theft and car hacking. Protect your car from theft like nothing else on the market today.
How Does The Autowatch Ghost Immobiliser Work?
The Autowatch secures your car against key cloning, key theft and car hacking. The Ghost has no key-fobs or LED indications to give away its locations. Instead, the Autowatch Ghost uses the buttons in your car, such as those on the steering wheel, centre console or door panels, to allow you to create a unique PIN code sequence that must be entered to disarm the system before the car will start. You can make this PIN code up to 20 presses long for added security. Don’t worry if you forget your pin, a button is broken or you sell your car, a secure emergency PIN code that is unique to each device can be used to reset the system.
The Autowatch Ghost Immobiliser is discreet and undetectable using traditional car theft methods. It doesn’t have any LED indicators and operates silently using the on-board CAN data network. In addition, there are no circuit cuts during installation and fitting that would allow thieves to detect it using diagnostic tools. Thanks to the Ghost not using radio frequency signals, thieves cannot use sophisticated RF scanning or code grabbing technology to intercept and detect the security system.
In addition, there is also an iPhone application that connects to your car and allows you to start and drive the car without the need to enter the PIN code. This app allows a single, authorised smartphone that is connected with a secure pairing code that is unique to each Ghose device. Communication between the Ghost and the iPhone is fully encrypted.
Installation and fitting is also low-impact and hassle-free thanks to the Ghost making use of the vehicle’s own CAN Data Network. In addition, due to the nature of CAN Data, the Ghost has been adapted and tested for every vehicle that is compatible.
The Autowatch Ghost Immobiliser is compatible with a wide range of vehicles, including Mercedes, Land Rover, Audi, BMW, Range Rover, Ford, Jaguar and many others. To check your vehicles compatibility with the Ghost Immobiliser, simply get in touch with our team on 0121 373 3122.
key theft – The Autowatch Ghost protects your car from key theft, thanks to its silent operation and PIN code security. Even if a thief were to steal your car key, they wouldn’t be able to start your car.
Key Cloning – The Autowatch Ghost provides complete protection from key cloning or keyless entry. Thanks to the device only communicating via the vehicle’s buttons and an optional Bluetooth connected device, the device can’t be found by scanning tools used by car thieves.
ECU Swapping – The Autowatch Ghost prevents car thieves from adding a new key or replacing the ECU to bypass the immobiliser system to start the vehicle. Only the correct PIN code will start the vehicle.

Do I Still Need A Car Tracker?
The Autowatch Ghost Immobiliser has proven itself to be a fantastic alternative to many car tracking systems. However, for added security and peace of mind, we recommend using a car tracking system alongside the Ghost Immobiliser. GPS car trackers allow you to monitor your vehicle in real-time and ensure that only you have access. The Autowatch Ghost Immobiliser works with this system to allow you to completely manage your Car’s starting system to prevent any unauthorised use.
