Security key for Siemens vans

A NEW vehicle security system has been launched by Siemens VDO Trading that enables a vehicle's engine to run with the ignition key removed.

The system is aimed at companies that need to leave engines running to operate equipment while out of the vehicle, such as temperature controlled delivery vans.

But leaving the keys in the vehicle leaves it exposed to the risk of theft, prompting the development of the Siemens system, called SVT-107.

As the key is taken out, the steering lock is automatically engaged and central locking and other features may be operated as normal.

If anyone interferes with the vehicle, or tries to drive away, the engine will automatically switch off.
