Car thefts continue to be a problem these days all over the world, and despite manufacturers investing in new and more advanced security tech, thieves too find new ways to break into these vehicles, sometimes using even latest-generation solutions and hacking methods.
Stealth Immobiliser is a device whose purpose is to deal with the whole problem with a new-gen approach, allowing any driver out there to configure a PIN code to protect their car.

Everything works like on a mobile phone, for example, as you need to enter the PIN code before being able to turn on the device.

The PIN code is a combination of buttons that you need to press after getting behind the wheel. If the correct combination isn’t provided, Stealth Immobiliser doesn’t allow the engine to start, essentially making it impossible for the car to be stolen.

The device connects to the Canbus wires of the vehicle, so in theory, it can be located pretty much anywhere in the car. In other words, even if the thieves attempt to find the device, it could take forever until they figure out where it is and then disconnect it.

Even if someone makes a copy of your key, Stealth Immobiliser protects your vehicle, preventing anyone from using it unless they enter your PIN code. Stealth Immobiliser works silently and invisibly so that thieves won't even suspect that it's there, and if you put your vehicle in for service, you can turn it into service mode, turning the device off so that no one even knows you have installed it in the vehicle,” the parent company explains.

The device is controlled via mobile apps, so users can configure new PINs whenever they want and choose from any combination of buttons to protect their cars.

Stealth immobiliser is currently live on Kickstarter for crowdfunding support, though at the time of writing, it’s still far from reaching its $94,947 goal.
