Theft of vehicles, trailers, containers or any other conveyances is a relatively common crime.
A detection and alarm system is not only used to discourage the thief but, above all, to sound the alarm in the event of vehicle theft.
Beyond this simple alarm, some devices are used to immobilise the stolen vehicle or even to locate it.
Alarm systems are therefore an effective means of protection against theft. They must be 'E' marked in accordance with the EU's electromagnetic compatibility directive for components installed in vehicles. This 'E' marking does not attest to the performance of the security system.
It only guarantees a minimum immunity level against electromagnetic disturbances, so that it can be sold in the European Union.
An effective detection and alarm system, along with safe immobilisation and geolocation in compliance with legislation therefore involve the installation of products whose reliability is certified by INCERT, a voluntary seal of approval attesting to their quality.
The Car Intruder Systems (CIS) department of ANPI laboratories conducts tests on detection, alarm, immobilisation and geolocation components and systems, in accordance with the specifications below, so that these products can receive an INCERT certification.
