The new Smartrack Thatcham S5 Tracker

The Standard S5 Thatcham vehicle tracker Features are as follows:

  • No more need to carry the standard tracker S5 fobs, your D-iD phone app acts as the driver identification system instead.
  • Your S5 tracker is linked to your phone to remotely identify you as the authorized driver, protecting you against theft methods such as key theft and relay crime.
  • The Smartrack S5 insurance company-approved tracker has recently been tested and categorised to TQA standards, with a 24/7 monitoring service.
  • The new Smartrack S5 Thatcham tracker uses GPS and GLONASS satellite networks and GPRS and GSM technology to track and recover stolen vehicles.
  • The S5 is the latest iteration of the CAT 5 Thatcham tracker and comes with an in-built battery backup system, ensuring that your S5 Tracker will continue operating even if your vehicle's power source is cut off.
  • Your S5 tracking device has the option of the Remote Immobilisation feature. This allows the control room to immobilise your vehicle in the event of a theft.
  • PLEASE NOTE: You will be issued a CAT 5 completion certificate, regardless of whether or not you choose to have the immobilisation system installed.

Driver Recognition Vehicle Tracking System

  • The S5 tracker is covertly installed by our Thatcham-certified engineers.
  • All Smartrack S5 Thatcham-approved Trackers come with DRS (Driver Recognition System) as standard.
  • DRS is an incredibly effective system offering protection against key theft, key cloning, and keyless entry/theft.
  • Any drivers you authorize can download the app and log in with your account details, letting them use the vehicle without disrupting their driving.
  • Even if the thief has stolen your keys, an alert is sent immediately in the 24/7 control centre if someone tries to access and start your car without using the app.
  • We offer nationwide installation across every UK mainland postcode by our vast team of engineers, and we will usually be able to install your complete system within 1-3 working days.
  • Free smartphone app
  • You do not need to pay your subscription yet. Simply add your CAT 5 tracker to your cart and complete checkout. Driveshield will contact you to arrange a date and time for installation. 
  • Smartrack will contact you after your installation to set up your subscription and forward your insurance installation certificate.
