Anti-theft alarm - protect your bike
Motorcycles are generally fitted with nothing more than a steering lock or an immobiliser ex factory. One reasonable upgrade could be a brake disc lock or a chain lock. However, these types of security measures are awkward to manage since they must still be carried along and are only applied once you have parked. In contrast, dguard is installed directly on your motorcycle, giving you anti-theft protection anywhere, all of the time.
How does the dguard anti-theft alarm work?
As soon as the dguard is installed on your motorcycle, you can use the accompanying app to configure your anti-theft system.
When you switch off your motorcycle’s ignition, the dguard button will flash six times to show you that the anti-theft alarm system is switched on. As long as your motorcycle is not moved for at least 10 seconds after that, the monitoring system is armed.
The system has GPS location capabilities. If your motorcycle is moved, it is detected by the dguard module and a GPS connection to the satellites is automatically established. The connection is created over the mobile network using the SIM card built into the module, and the data is sent to the dguard cloud. You will immediately receive a notification on your smartphone via the app, containing the last location of your motorcycle. You can also adjust it so that, in the case of an emergency, an SMS is sent to you or to those you trust.
A further use of the anti-theft protection system is that you can easily query the latest location of your bike manually by using the app.
Upgrade your motorcycle alarm system
dguard is the perfect upgrade or alternative to a motorcycle alarm system: The sensitivity of the sensors can be individually adjusted, so that even the slightest movement can be detected. A warning message providing the current location coordinates is immediately sent to the stored number, and you can respond in time.
Motorcycle alarm systems aren’t enough
How classical alarm systems work is based primarily on the principle of deterrence. The shrill tone of an alarm siren upon unauthorised movement of the motorcycle is intended to prevent thieves from making off with your ride. However, if you are not near enough to your bike to hear the alarm, it is possible that unauthorised movement or even theft may go unnoticed.
Effectively secure your motorcycle against theft
A further shortcoming of classical motorcycle alarm systems is that retrofitted alarm systems are easily separated from the bike. This is because, as a general rule, these small devices are applied externally and thus can be seen. You can also retrofit with the dguard module, although it is firmly attached to your motorcycle by our specialist dealers, so it will not fall off, and it cannot be removed.
„Find my bike“ function
If your motorcycle is stolen, it will continue to send location data. This allows you to trace the history of its location. Thanks to the “Find my bike” function, you can easily locate your motorcycle and provide the data to the police. The energy needed to operate the dguard anti-theft alarm is very low in comparison to conventional alarm systems (less than 100 µA). This allows your battery to remain charged even after long periods of inactivity.
