What Safety and Security Upgrades B&B Audioconcepts Recommends for this NEW BMW X5

This brand NEW Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) BMW X5 drove in brand new from dealer for some very high tech Car Security and Car Safety Upgrades. You must be thinking that this BMW X5 would be fully loaded with all the Car Safety and Car Security technology out there. While yes it does have some incredible technology built into it there is always advanced car safety and security upgrades that are designed to make our vehicles even more secure and safe from thieves. B&B Audioconcepts specialises in all forms of vehicle Safety and Security Upgrades.

Security Upgrades to the BMW X5 were added in the form of the GHOST Immobiliser and Global Telemetrics 24 Hour Surveilance. The Ghost uses the buttons in your vehicle such as those on the steering wheel, door panels or centre console, to allow you to make a unique, changeable, disarm sequence (like a PIN code) that must first be entered before you can drive your car, just like your credit card but you can make your car disarm sequence even safer by making it up to 20 presses long!.  Global Telemetrics Tracking gives you 24 hour surveilance, 365 days a year, for the ultimate in vehicle tracking.  The team monitors vehicles for illegal movements (vehicle moving without the ignition turned on). The SLO will call the customer to confirm the vehicle is safe. Global Telemetrics also monitor vehicle battery levels and will contact the customer if the battery is running low or has been fully disconnected.

The BMW X5 safety was boosted with the Q800 PRO an update of the F800 PRO, doubling the definition of the front camera to 2K. The THINKWARE CLOUD features include Vehicle Location, Geo-Fence alerts, Impact Notification and video upload when there is an impact greater than 3G in intensity. Format Free 2.0 Technology eliminates the need for manual reformatting of recorded video files on the micro SD memory card, extending memory card life and improving reliability.

How does Ghost Immobiliser work? - Security Upgrade work in NEW BLACK BMW X5

The Ghost immobiliser has no key-fobs or LED indications to give away its location. The Ghost uses the buttons in your vehicle such as those on the steering wheel, door panels or centre console, to allow you to make a unique, changeable, PIN code sequence that must first be entered before you can drive your car.  Without the unique code the Ghost will prevent the engine starting.  Watch the Audioconcepts Car Theft Demo as shown by B&B Audioconcepts experienced team member. 

 

Ghost Car Anti-Theft System - Security Upgrade for NEW BMW X5

Next Generation Car Anti-Theft System. The Ghost is the original aftermarket CAN bus immobiliser.  Protect your car from theft like nothing else on the market today.  The Ghost protects your car from key-cloning, hacking, and even key theft.  The Ghost has no key-fobs or LED indications to give away its location. The Ghost uses the buttons in your vehicle such as those on the steering wheel, door panels or centre console, to allow you to make a unique, changeable, disarm sequence (like a PIN code) that must first be entered before you can drive your car. Just like your credit card but you can make your car disarm sequence even safer by making it up to 20 presses long!

In order to make extreme security also be hassle free, we have created a smart-phone application that connects to your car and allows you to get in and drive without having to enter the disarm sequence. Ghost allows 2 phones to be connected. All you have to do is pair your phone with your Ghost, leave the Autowatch Ghost application running in the background with Bluetooth enabled and you can drive conveniently and securely. However, remember that if your phone is in range (5m to 10m) and the application is running the Ghost will be disarmed.

 

Secure-A-Key Security Upgrade for NEW BMW X5 SAV

In 2017 the West Midlands Police department in the United Kingdom obtained surveillance footage of a gang of high-tech thieves that were able to get into a brand new Mercedes Benz and drive it off using a ‘mystery device’. The thieves were able to gain entry into the vehicle in under 18 seconds and drive it off in 46 seconds.

This ‘mystery device’ used in the Mercedes Benz theft, now known as a “relay attack box”, uses a technology called Signal Amplification Relay Attack (SARA). SARA works by exploiting weaknesses in the factory passive keyless entry and push-to-start system. Now, I know what you are thinking, “as long as I have my key fob they can’t take my car”. However, you are wrong.

I bet that you are beginning to wonder what you can do to protect yourself against relay attack theft. Well, there are several low-tech solutions that may provide some protection. For example, wrapping your key fob in aluminum foil, keeping your keys in your refrigerator, or putting your key fob in a fully enclosed metal box. Laugh if you want, but these have been suggested by various law enforcement agencies and yes, they do provide some protection. However, is anybody really going to do it every day? No, I don’t think so either.

According to Moni Melman, NAV-TV CEO, “The Secure-a-Key is a patent-pending universal product that installs into the consumer’s existing key fob. It requires no additional parts, professional installation or dealership intervention. The Secure-a-Key works by detecting movement. Once the key stops moving for a short period of time, the Secure-a-Key disconnects the internal battery, effectively eliminating the key fob’s ability to receive or transmit a signal to the car and, thus, solving the problem of relay attack theft. As soon as the Secure-a-Key detects the slightest movement, the battery is reconnected and all functions of the passive keyless entry and push-to-start system become fully functional.”

Secure-A-Key is an anti-theft device specifically designed for preventing relay-style frequency amplification attacks. The most common way high-tech thieves steal PKE-equipped cars is by using a device to capture frequency of the vehicle’s key-fob, then transmit the data to a co-conspirator near the vehicle for unlocking and starting the car. Secure-A-Key installs inside your vehicle’s Keyless-GO remote and electronically disconnects the battery from the fob after a few minutes of in-activity. This disables the radio frequency communication of the keyfob until the key is once again in motion.

THINKWARE Q800 PRO DASH CAMERA 2K for BMW X5 2019

“Nearly three million motorists are now recording their journeys with dash cams, according to a new RAC study, and with more motorists starting to see the value of dashboard cameras, it is an important time for THINKWARE to bring the latest innovation to the dash cam industry” stated Joey Won, THINKWARE DASH CAM’s General Manager of UK Development. “An increasing number of insurers are accepting footage when reviewing claims and offering discounts to those with dash cams installed. By incorporating cloud connectivity into our dash cams, we are moving one step closer to offering insurers and drivers more streamlined insurance claims.”

Users can easily control and manage their Q800 PRO dash cam with CLOUD connectivity and built-in WiFi via an iOS or Android smart phone, providing a truly convenient way to view, download, access or delete recorded footage as well as enable firmware and safety camera updates via the app. The Q800 PRO is an update of the F800 PRO, doubling the definition of the front camera. The THINKWARE CLOUD features include Vehicle Location, Geo-Fence alerts, Impact Notification and video upload when there is an impact greater than 3G in intensity.

Equipped with Sony Exmor R Starvis sensors for both front and rear cameras and the powerful Ambarella A12 processor, the Q800 PRO offers crystal clear QHD footage for the front camera and 1080p for the rear. As with the F800 PRO, the Q800 PRO is equipped with Super Night Vision 2.0 which means clearer night time footage both while driving and when parked with up to 10 times the brightness in dark environments.

Users will benefit from different recording modes; motion and impact detection or Time Lapse Photography at two frames per second for up to 72 hours. If a driver is leaving their car for a longer period of time, they could use the Energy Saving Parking Recording where the Q800 PRO will sleep until an impact is detected and will wake up within a second, to record for the next 20 seconds. The current drain in this mode is reduced by two thirds.

The Q800 PRO comes with a polarising filter to reduce dashboard reflections. It is packed with useful features including built-in A-GPS for embedding speed, time and location data into recorded videos. The location is remembered so it achieves instant GPS lock when switched on. There is also the option of connecting an external GPS antenna, to get around the shielding effect of heated or sun reflective windscreens.

The location data is used to provide safety camera alerts, which include speed cameras, red light cameras, average speed zones and mobile speed camera zones. The European version of the camera provides “Danger Zone” alerts in France, as well as safety camera alerts in the rest of Europe.

Format Free 2.0 Technology eliminates the need for manual reformatting of recorded video files on the micro SD memory card, extending memory card life and improving reliability.
