This high quality fully featured engine immobilizing car alarm is made to and has passed the latest 2001 Australian and New Zealand Standards AS/NZS 4601:1999 - Vehicle Immobilisers. Some insurance companies will offer a discount on your policy if you have a standards approved immobilizer fitted to your vehicle, and in the case of high performance or imported cars you may be required to have one fitted as a condition of your policy.
Most insurers require, as a minimum, an Australian Standards approved (AS/NZS 4601:1999) Immobiliser with a minimum of two immobilizing points, and some of the more specialised insurers require 3 immobilisation points.
The Shadow meets and exceeds these insurers' requirements by having the required standard two internal immobilizing circuits as well as a third external immobilizing circuit.
The Shadow is sold with the alarm components separately (LA-8975), allowing the user to save costs if they do not require the alarm functionality.
