Remote vehicle immobilization allows users to remotely disable a vehicle’s ignition in the case of theft or unauthorized use, offering vital security benefits:

  • Act immediately to stop a stolen vehicle in its tracks
  • Improve stolen vehicle recovery rates
  • Vehicles with remote immobilizers may be eligible for lower insurance rates
  • Receive alerts with vehicle details and location, should a vehicle move without approval


GPS Tracking Devices for Vehicle Immobilizer System

Digital Matter’s vehicle immobilizer and GPS tracking devices feature customizable switched ground digital outputs. These outputs can be wired to control a relay, and the relay will create a starter motor cut. This means when the output is activated, the vehicle cannot be started.

Remote Vehicle Immobilizer Configurations

There are several ways to activate and configure remote vehicle immobilization with Digital Matter GPS tracking devices:

  • On-Demand – Remote vehicle disabling systems can be initialized manually using our GPS Tracking Software Telematics Guru.
  • Driver ID Validation – If Driver ID is also configured, vehicles will only start when a valid Driver ID tag is presented. Unregistered tags will not be able to start the vehicle.


Secure Your Vehicles with GPS Tracking

Vehicle immobilization systems provide a variety of benefits to businesses and fleet owners. With the ability to install in vehicles, cars, and other motor-powered assets and equipment, businesses can ensure visibility and actively manage their fleets with vehicle tracking and disabling devices. Electronic vehicle immobilization devices offer anti-theft immobilizers for cars and other company or commercial vehicles.

Vehicle GPS Tracking Devices

With the ability to track stolen vehicles, car GPS trackers and disablers expedite the process of retrieving lost or stolen assets which can decrease expensive insurance premiums with the reinforced security of asset management and retrieval.

The benefits of vehicle immobilizer systems for company cars include increased visibility of vehicles, insight into driver behaviors, data logging of your inventory’s location, and asset usage. The data collected from Digital Matter’s electronic immobilizers for cars offers the added benefit of security, plus digitally logged data can be leveraged to lower overall costs associated with inefficiencies, driver safety and behaviors, and regularly scheduled vehicle maintenance.

In the case of hire equipment GPS tracking, hire periods may be charged in hours, or aligned to days/weeks. The equipment however might not be returned once the period is up, and many customers like to get some extra unauthorized usage in, causing additional wear on equipment. With a GPS tracker and immobilizer device installed, the rental equipment can be shut down remotely, so it can only be used during agreed-upon hire periods.
