Pandora Alarms Thatcham Approved
1 January 2020 | Admin
Well what a way to start the year 2020, certain Pandora alarm systems are now Thatcham approved. This means if you have a Thatcham approved Pandora system installed you may get an insurance discount on renewal of your insurance policy. Thatcham approval doesn't really mean a great deal to customers that already have a Thatcham Cat 1 alarm installed as standard from the factory. There is simply no point in having 2 Thatcham approved alarms on 1 vehicle, if this is the case with your vehicle we would recommend the excellent Pandora Mini BT. If you have an older vehicle with no cat 1 alarm as standard and just an immobiliser it might be worth while going for a Thatcham approved Pandora Alarm system such as the Light Pro, Smart Pro or Professional V2.
What do you get with the Pandora Thatcham approved models?
- Wireless Bluetooth Siren ( Battery Back UP )
- Wired Additional Immobiliser Cut ( Can be upgraded to wireless at additional cost )
- Interior Microwave Zone
What do you NOT get with the Pandora Thatcham approved models?
- No Anti Hijack ( This doesn't comply with Thatcham )
- No Dual Zone Warn Away ( No warn away of anyone coming close to the driver / passanger window glass )
