PS-332BT Thatcham siren

Pandora have been working hard to provide a battery back up wireless siren which will allow the system to become Thatcham approved in the UK. We have been testing the PS-331BT siren for many months on our own work vehicle and we can say it works fantastic. The idea behind the BT siren is it means you don’t have to run or drill holes within the vehicles engine bay to run siren wires. You simply link up the live and earth within the engine bay and the alarm does the rest completely wireless.

With the inbuilt battery you can be assured if the siren is attacked the battery back up will kick in and it will allow the siren to keep sounding. The siren is also very flat meaning it can be mounted easily within most modern engine bays.

The siren is set to be released shortly. ( December 2019 to early 2020. )

Pandora Mini V2 and Light Pro V2

Pandora have released there Mini BT V2 model and Light Pro V2 models. Pandora are constantly building on what they already have and making the system the best it can be.

Mini BT V2 now comes with an LED which is the same LED as other Pandora alarm models. This makes the Mini BT a stunning alarm system which no other brands can come close within its price point.

Light Pro V2 now features a rechargable OLED remote control which means no more messing around with AAA batteries. Simply plug in via USB and recharge the remote when needed. The system also uses a Lora chip set increasing Bluetooth range slightly.

Either system is fantastic and offers excellent protection for your vehicle.

Pandora Alarms Maintenance Mode

The latest alarm firmware and Bluetooth updates from Pandora make the system more reliable but also more user friendly, Pandora are always looking for ways to make it easier and faster to make the system do what you want in seconds. and as such they have done it once again. Many dealerships don’t want a security system active while they are carrying out servicing or software updates. As such you can put your Pandora alarm system into Maintenance / Service mode by simply holding the button on the ADR tag for 3 seconds ( 3 red led blinks ). To exit the Maintenance mode you simply repeat holding the adr button for 3 seconds.

When the system is in Maintenance mode / Service mode nothing in terms of the security will be active such as alarm triggers, notifications or Immobilisation. This means you MUST exit maintenance mode instantly when leaving the dealership to make sure your vehicle is secure.

The NEW siren to be released shortly by Pandora. The PS-331BT offering a VERY loud 130 db siren with full on board battery back up.

This also offers a temperature sensor which can be mounted to the vehicles engine or coolant pipes which give a temperature reading on the Pandora app or remote control. The PS-331BT connects via a Bluetooth connection which is highly encrypted to stop forms of cloning or blocking in order to try and disable the system.

Pandora VS24

Being released from Pandora in 2019 the Bluetooth dual zone proximity sensor. Unless you have the Pandora Professional system were you can adjust the sensativity via your smartphone, adjusting the proximity has always been an issue on the other models. As such if you want to make changes to the proximity sensor you would need to gain access to the sensor itself. In the mean time Pandora have been working hard to make a worlds first Bluetooth sensor which can be controlled via the Pandora Bluetooth app. This means it will allow customers to make changes to the sensativity very quickly via the app from your smartphone. The new dual zone proximity sensor will be the most stable and accurate proximity sensor ever seen in the UK before.

What do Pandora say?

VS-24 is a wireless two-level volume sensor designed to work with Pandora systems by a Bluetooth connection. New algorithms for auto calibration and object movement detection are
used in the sensor. These algorithms significantly increased the protection against false alarms. The sensor allows to secure your vehicle interior in the armed mode and during a remote
start procedure, it helps to prevent attempts of intrusion. The sensor increases the protection against thefts and gives peace of mind to an owner.

We will update this post when the VS-24 dual zone proximity is released in 2019.

Pandora Wireless Immobiliser Modules

The latest release from Pandora is here, there very secure wireless immobiliser modules which can be installed anywhere within the vehicle. This gives security unlike any other alarm product on the market, even if a thief was able to find the alarm module and trace back every single wire they still won’t be able to get the vehicle started giving you excellent protection. What do Pandora say?

Pandora now “cuts the cables” by applying wireless technology through Bluetooth LE v4.2 communication protocol to its new generation anti-theft systems. This communication protocol chosen by Pandora is ideal for short-range wireless communication (range up to 10m) because the 128bit AES encryption method is used to transmit the communication data, has a peak current consumption of <15mA, and cannot be detected by another device when it is paired with authorized devices.

No Wires. No Limits. Anti-Theft Protection.

The use of this method significantly increases anti-theft protection of new generation Pandora’s protection systems because it gives freedom of placement of individual peripherals, anywhere in the vehicle we want and as hidden as possible.

Thus, Pandora decentralizes the central unit’s anti-theft functions in sub-units that either send information from built-in sensors (such as engine temperature, humidity, etc.) to the central unit for further processing, or trigger the block for which they are programmed when the communication with the central unit is lost or some movement is detected by the built-in acceleration sensor.

Designing these peripherals with their minimal dimensions and robust construction, Pandora has achieved maximum energy efficiency and full integration and harmonizing with vehicle wiring so as to make them invisible and practically impossible to locate by the prospective thief, even if he has enough time to deal with your vehicle.

Complete Anti-Theft Protection, even if the thieves find and unplug the alarm unit, the engine will turn off as soon as the vehicle start moving.
