Terms and conditions
All our Pandora systems are designed to work on almost any vehicle. But every vehicle manufacturer is different. On most installs, our systems talk digitally through the vehicles CANbus network or by adding external temperature sensors. The information read by the alarm system through the CANbus network won't always be exact. Therefore in some small cases the fuel, temperature and other vehicle perimeters may not display on the Pandora app vehicle dependent. If they do display, most of the time we can adjust to be as close as we can to the true reading. Normally between 0-20% of the original vehicle reading itself.
Vehicles factory OEM alarm systems.
Most modern cars are fitted with a factory immobiliser and/or alarm system. These alarms can be updated by the vehicle manufacturer at anytime when your vehicle goes in for a service or remotely at anytime through the SIM card built into the vehicles BCM. To gain control of the OEM alarm system on any vehicle fully, we sometimes need to use an external Pandora Module (POA) which controls your spare OEM remote. This then gives your Pandora system full control of your Factory settings, including on some vehicles mirror closure, dead locks, roof closure and control of the OEM arm and disarm. On some vehicles if the extra module is not used, you will still be able to arm the pandora and lock the vehicle through your OEM remote and the Pandora remote/app. However on some vehicles, You can disarm the Pandora and unlock the car remotely through the OEM remote, but not through pressing disarm on the Pandora control. Please ask your installer for more information on your vehicle.
The additional proximity sensor with warn away can be added to any of our alarm packages for an extra £50.00. this will give two zones. Zone 1 senses internal motion inside the vehicles cabin. Zone 2 senses motion just outside the vehicle, sensing motion on the front two doors just inside the wing mirrorsWe have found the proximity and warn away sensor work on 80% of vehicles with no issues. However, some vehicles that are fitted with internal factory and aftermarket electrical wireless antennas can interfere with the sensor causing intermittent false alarms. Factory fitted DAB antennas, internet modems or dongles, security sensors, trackers and other aftermarket wireless devices including dash cams and trackers, can cause interference to the sensor causing Intermittent false alarms. or the sensor not to work at all. Your installer will fit this sensor as an extra to your alarm if requested. If after the system is fitted and the sensor does false alarm or not function, it will need to be disabled in the smartphone app or removed completely. In some cases the false alarms are caused by the sensor being set too high and simply turning it down will stop most false alarms. However, It is advised that you do not buy this alarm system solely for this sensor as it may not work on your vehicle and may need the external zone disabling.
Window & mirror closure
Window and mirror closure is not included as standard with any of our alarm packages.Some modern cars have full closure already fitted to the vehicle from factory. Some of these vehicles we can control comfort closure with a canBUS commands from the alarm system and will be part of your install. Older vehicles may need extra wiring or a full window closure module fitted to each door to control the windows. Pandora do not make/supply window closure modules, therefore it will not be included in the package.
Unfortunately, we cannot always guarantee that we can safely disable the vehicles engine for anti-hijack.
Every vehicle is different. We have a large record of vehicle wiring diagrams, which we follow to install our alarm systems on to your vehicle. However, some newer vehicles (anything up to 1 year old) and rare vehicles, we may not have records for. Unless we have a safe immobiliser point on your vehicle, we will not fit this immobiliser. Your safety come first. The rest of the alarm system will be installed leaving Anti-Hijack disabled. Further research will then be needed to find a safe immobiliser for anti-hijack on your vehicle. The vehicle will then need to be booked back in and returned back to us when the research has been competed. This can take up to 6-12month from the installation date.
