Administration > Vehicles > Immobilizer - What to consider before sending a command to activate or deactivate the immobilizer?

The first thing you must reflect on is that you do not always control the circumstances under which you use the immobilizer to block a vehicle.

Although the immobilizer, once activated, only disables the starter's ability to restart the engine - and therefore does not stop a vehicle while moving - it is possible to think of occasions under which even this operation can be risky.

For that reason, customers wanting to install the immobilizer must always sign a Term of Responsibility, stating that they are aware of the operation of the immobilizer and that they will be responsible for its use and consequences.

For safety reasons, Frotcom International reserves the right to disable the use of immobilizers if a copy of that term of responsibility is not received.

If you are about to send a command to activate or deactivate the immobilizer, be aware that the immobilization of a vehicle should only be done when you are 100% not to cause any damages with your action. Frotcom is not responsible for any damages that may come from immobilization of a vehicle. 

By enabling the automation of the immobilizer, you will automatically immobilize the selected vehicles outside of the permitted working periods. Be aware that the immobilization of a vehicle should only be done when you are 100% not to cause any damages with your action. Frotcom is not responsible for any damages that may come from your immobilization of a vehicle.

Note that if the device receives a command to activate the immobilizer and then enters a zone without GSM/GPRS coverage, it will be impossible to deactivate the immobilizer through GSM/GPRS. Therefore the vehicle may need direct intervention by a technician before being able to restart the engine.
