The Automatic Driver Recognition Tag (ADR) feature on this tracker can provide immediate theft detection when your vehicle is stolen without a key. The Scorpion S5 Tracker is supplied two Automatic Driver Recognition (ADR) tags which will react when the vehicle is moved without any detection of the tags.

The tracking system will send an alert to the 24/7 Monitoring Centre who will then contact you to confirm if the vehicle has been stolen. The ScorpionTrack S5 VTS has an additional layer of security that does not depend on the vehicle’s own built-in immobiliser designed by the manufacturer which is usually vulnerable to attack.

There are two types of immobilisation present in this tracker, namely:

– Automatic Immobilisation (No tag, no start): Using this feature, the tracking system will immobilise the vehicle automatically every time the vehicle is switched off. On returning to the vehicle, one of the ADR tags must be in range before the engine can be started again.
