The system will automatically arm itself 70 seconds after the vehicle ignition has been switched off and the driver card is out of range (approximately 3 metres) The system will automatically disarm itself when the driver card is brought back in range of the vehicle. If your vehicle is driven and the driver card has not been detected a silent alert will be transmitted to the Vodafone Automotive 24 hour Secure Operating Centre who will contact you to check that a vehicle theft has not taken place
