Everything You Need To Know When Selecting a Category S5 Vehicle Tracker

What is a Category S5 Vehicle Tracker?

A Category S5 vehicle tracker represents the height of vehicle security technology. Endorsed by Thatcham Research, a respected authority in vehicle security, S5 trackers are designed to meet stringent specifications for anti-theft systems. These car trackers are equipped with advanced features such as driver recognition, remote immobilisation, and real-time tracking, offering unparalleled protection against theft.

Why Should I Choose an S5 Tracker?

Choosing an S5 tracker is investing in top-tier security for your vehicle. These trackers provide:

  • Advanced Anti-Theft Features: With technologies like driver recognition tags, these systems ensure that your vehicle is protected against sophisticated theft methods.
  • Peace of Mind: Knowing your vehicle is equipped with the highest standard of theft prevention brings invaluable peace of mind.
  • Potential Insurance Benefits: Many insurers offer lower premiums for vehicles protected by S5 trackers due to their proven effectiveness in reducing theft risks.

What Are the Costs of a Thatcham Approved S5 Car Tracker?

The investment in a Thatcham approved S5 car tracker is multifaceted, encompassing the purchase, installation, and subscription services for real-time tracking. While initial costs may seem significant, ranging from mid to high-end depending on features and brands, the long-term benefits such as reduced insurance premiums and enhanced vehicle security make it a worthwhile investment. It’s essential to consider both the upfront and ongoing costs to ensure comprehensive protection for your vehicle.

How Does an S5 Tracker Work?

An S5 tracker works through a combination of advanced technology and seamless communication systems. Here’s a breakdown of its operational mechanics:

  • Immediate Theft Detection: Utilising driver recognition technology, the system alerts if the vehicle is started without the authorized tag.
  • Real-Time Tracking: GPS technology allows for the real-time tracking of the vehicle, ensuring its location can be pinpointed at any time.
  • Remote Immobilisation: In the event of theft, certain S5 trackers can remotely disable the vehicle, preventing further movement.
  • 24/7 Monitoring: Most S5 trackers are monitored around the clock by dedicated control centres, ready to act in the event of an unauthorized movement.

Is it possible to include an immobiliser?

Yes, it is indeed possible to get an immobiliser with an S5 tracker. An example of this advanced combination is the Scorpion S5 Plus. This system not only proves the high-level security features expected from an S5 tracker, such as real-time tracking and driver recognition but also includes an immobilisation feature. This added layer of protection ensures that, in the event of a theft attempt, the vehicle can be quickly and remotely disabled, significantly enhancing vehicle security.

What is the Best Category S5 Tracker?

Identifying the “best” Category S5 tracker involves evaluating features such as 24/7 alert monitoring, the presence of a dedicated team at monitoring centres, and the capability for level 1 police response. The ideal S5 tracker should also have integrated software that keeps the monitoring centres well-informed about your vehicle’s location and any movement, ensuring immediate notification in case of theft or tampering attempts. Features like automatic driver recognition add an extra layer of security, alerting you if the vehicle is moved without the authorized tags present. This comprehensive surveillance and collaboration with police forces enhance the chances of recovering stolen vehicles, providing vehicle owners with peace of mind and pride in the protection of their valuable asset.

Automatic Driver Recognition

Automatic Driver Recognition (ADR) is a standout feature in Category S5 trackers, significantly enhancing vehicle security. It utilizes authorized tags to identify the vehicle’s legitimate driver, immediately alerting the owner if the vehicle is moved without the tag present. This feature is a formidable barrier against theft, ensuring that even if the keys are stolen, the vehicle remains immobilized unless the authorized tag is detected. ADR is instrumental in preventing unauthorised use of your vehicle, providing an additional layer of security and peace of mind.


While the costs associated with owning a Thatcham approved S5 car tracker may initially appear steep, the unparalleled security it provides, alongside potential insurance advantages, make it an invaluable asset for any vehicle owner. Ensuring your vehicle is equipped with an S5 tracker is more than just a security measure; it’s a statement of commitment to safeguarding your valued asset against any threats. Embrace the ultimate peace of mind with a Category S5 vehicle tracker, and drive confidently knowing your vehicle is secured by the highest standard of protection available.
