Landrover Defender Security Upgrades

Iconic Landrover Defender Security Upgrades

Landrover Defender Security UpgradeOne of the easiest vehicles to steal has got to be the iconic Landrover Defender. The build design hasn’t changed since it was first introduced in 1983 so parts are easily interchangeable between vehicles. As well as this the factory security system is also dated, meaning it’s easily bypassed to steal the vehicle. Many Landrover Defender owners are now faced with the fact they could wake up one morning to find it stolen. By installing one of our Landrover Defender security upgrades you will reduce the risk of theft of the vehicle.

Depending on the level of security you require with our Landrover Defender security upgrades we have an alarm to suit your needs. From the entry level to the top of range one, any security system will greatly decrease the chances of it being stolen. Our entry level alarm provides an amazing level of protection which the top alarm improves on with additional sensors. One of the best features of both alarms is the proximity sensor. The proximity sensor works by creating a bubble around the front door area of the vehicle.  If someone is within range the alarm emits an aggressive chirp to warn them away from the vehicle.

Also, some other features of the highest level alarm are the tilt and glass break sensors. The tilt sensor will trigger the alarm when someone tries to tow the vehicle. The Glass Break sensor will trigger the alarm system when someone smashes a window.

Anti Hi-Jacking Feature

Landrover Defender security upgrades Clifford Alarm LED and Valet Switch Adding a security device to a vehicle is all well and good, however if someone breaks into your house and steals the car keys most alarm systems are useless. The beauty of the Clifford alarm system is the anti hijacking feature called ‘Blackjax.’  This is a system that uses a unique code number for the alarm. If you don’t enter the number onto the valet switch the alarm system immobilises the vehicle.  Also, it stops the ignition barrel and remote controls from working. Only by entering the override code for the alarm system will the vehicle start once again. 


All of our alarm systems can have other cool features added, such as remote engine start and headlight illumination to name a few. Call us on 0114 257 1550 if you would like to speak to one of our staff about an installation. Visit our Contact page to enquiry with us via email.

The highest level alarm system for a Landrover Defender starts from £599 fully fitted.

The UK's Ultimate Car Audio, Security and Navigation Specialists, having been voted on numerous occasions by the "UK's Best Installers" by the Car Audio, Security & Navigation Industry Find out why...

I began researching an audio upgrade to my BMW and have visited several high end car audio specialists in the North West to get advice on possible options and costs …then I visited SOURCE. On walking in I was initially impressed with the SOURCE showroom display and the range of options to sample.There really is something to suit all budgets ,certainly far more comprehensive and wide ranging than any others I visited in the North West . The real “gem” of SOURCE is however their very detailed knowledge of all the technical and “fit” aspects and most especially the time they are prepared to spend talking through technical /price options without pressure to buy .As a result I returned a second time and again experienced the same friendly non pushy very informed advice as we explored the possibilities in a little more depth.Every question I had was answered,time was ,once again, not an issue and nothing was too much trouble including phone calls to suppliers to check availability/latest spec for my car etc .In the end I genuinely felt they wanted to advise the best system for me and definitely not just the most expensive. I am convinced you cannot get better than SOURCE for your car audio needs ,excellence like this is very rare in my experience and I strongly suggest you call in to this 5 star outfit – you wont be disappointed and I reckon you will be totally satisfied/blown away with the result if you buy.

We traveled from Rotherham to get these guys to fit some reversing sensors to my wife’s car, I’d been before and they were very professional for both alarms and a radio on my van and this time as before they were brilliant. The work was completed ahead of time and one of the guys came out and spent 10 minutes explaining EXACTLY how parking sensors worked which was great as I hadn’t a clue. We are very pleased with both the professionalism of the people and the work in which they do. Perfect!!! Many, many thanks for such a great company.
