Rider ID Tags for motorcyclists
An alert is generated if the bike is hijacked (or stolen with the bike’s keys) and the Rider ID tag and bike are separated. Many bikers also choose to add a Meta Trak immobiliser option to the Meta Trak S5-VTS for increased security; the Rider ID tag allows for automatic and contactless immobiliser disarming.

Key Cloning Protection
What is “Key cloning”?
Key cloning is the method by which a thief can programme a new key into the vehicle without the owner’s knowledge. This can be achieved using a low-cost programming device connected to the OBD diagnostic port of the vehicle. In some cases thieves can connect to vehicle electronics without even entering the vehicle. You may think that could never happen, but thieves are cunning, they will wait for a driver to leave their vehicle, press their remote control to lock the vehicle as usual.
But, they are jamming your remote control; you think your vehicle is locked but it’s not!
Making Key Clone theft a thing of the past
In the event of the vehicle being driven WITHOUT the Driver ID Tag present
e.g. with an unauthorised key, an alert will be sent to our SOC within seconds.
Because the objective is detecting vehicle theft using a cloned key rather than stolen keys, the ID tag can be attached to the vehicle keys.
This eliminates the need for the driver to remember to carry a separate ID device as was the case with Cat5.
Which also means they avoid being contacted by the alarm receiving centre each time he/she forgets to do so.
Starter Motor Immobiliser
Want even more pro-active resistance to theft using a cloned key?
With Meta Trak VTS it’s possible to add a wireless starter motor immobiliser which can be set and unset remotely via the app, or automatically each time you leave your vehicle and unset each time you enter the vehicle with the ID tag. In the event that a thief successfully manages to clone a key any attempt to steal the vehicle using that key will be blocked if the immobiliser is active.
