The Shadow Immobiliser is the UK’s first connected immobiliser, allowing you to secure your vehicle with innovative and reliable technology. The Shadow Immobiliser automatically immobilises your vehicle when your ignition is switched off. The Shadow Immobiliser is operated solely through the presence of our  unique Driver Detection Cards, eliminating the need to remobilise the vehicle through manual processes such as sequencing.
The Shadow Immobiliser comes with two Shadow Driver Detection Cards and a USB charging cable.  Should the battery in either of the cards deplete, simply plug into a USB using the charging cable provided and wait 30 minutes for a full charge, or until the green LED light appears on your card. 
In the event that you lose either of your supplied Shadow Driver Detection cards, please contact Global Telemetrics on 0800 279 6401 to purchase new cards. The lost card will be remotely deactivated.. You will be given access to the Shadow Immobiliser Android/Apple app which can be used to disarm your vehicle in the interim period before your new cards are delivered to you.

Unfortunately no the Shadow Immobiliser can’t be transferred to an alternative vehicle. If you require another Shadow Immobiliser please contact your original supplier.

However, the card is required to be within the vehicle, or just outside, to allow the vehicle to start. We recommend keeping your Driver Detection cards within a Faraday Pouch whilst not in use, including your spare cards.
