There is a unique wireless tag paired to the tracking unit. If this tag is not present, the system sends an alarm when the car is driven off. The monitoring centre will then attempt to call the driver or owner to verify if there is a theft situation, and then track the car. This process is designed to address 'key theft' (which accounts for the majority of thefts involving new vehicles) and ensures that the police are notified at the earliest opportunity.
An increasing trend among car thieves is to steal the vehicle’s keys. Without the Driver Authentication Device, the theft will be identified promptly and ultimately increase the likelihood of a successful recovery.
