How does it work?

The SmarTrack S5 DiD (available now. Official launch date, January 27th 2020) Thatcham Category S5 Tracker is the all new system from Smartarck which no longer requires you to carry a Driver ID Card on you. Instead the Smartrack S5 DiD system uses an encrypted Bluetooth pairing on your smartphone to deactivate the tracking system. 

If you prefer the Smartrack S5 can be supplied with 2 Driver Recognitiopn Tags, often referred to as ADR cards, tags or driver cards. These tags must be present with the driver to deactivate the tracking system each time the vehicle is started. This is the same with the Smartphone DiD.

The tag can be kept on the keys for ease of use however we recommend it is kept seperate. We personally feel this offers more protection as if the keys are stolen then the tag will deactivate the tracking system which then means it is now down to the owner to recognise the vehicle is stolen, this could be hours after theft which could be too late. If the tag or phone are not present, the Smartrack S5 Tracker located in your vehicle will silently alert the Secure Operating Centre (SOC) who monitor the system 365 days a year. They will will inturn ensure you are contacted within minutes to confirm the vehicles location.

In the event of a theft the Smartrack S5 Tracker has the optional ability to remotely immobilise the vehicle (S5 Plus model). This prevents the thief restarting the vehicle once stopped. We do think this is advisable as it maximises the security of the system however it is not required for insurance approval but some insurers will request the immobilisation.

Once a theft has being confirmed and a Crime Reference Number has being given to the Secure Operating Centre, staff will then liaise with the appropriate Police force, guide officers to the vehicles location and confirm your vehicle is secure.

Recovery of your vehicle will be arranged on your behalf, back to your registered address.



Varients of the Smartrack S5 model are:

  • Smartrack S5 Plus - This has all the benefits of the standard Smartrack S5 but with the protection of Manual Engine Immobilisation. Smartrack Secure Control Centre can remotely immobilise the engine after theft, upon Police request. Subscriptions are slighlty higher for this option (see dropdown selection above).




Your vehicle is live tracked as soon as we give you your keys back on completion of the installation. Payment for subscription is not required until this point where you will be contacted by Smartrack either by phone or email for payment. Once the payment is made Smartrack will email you your Welcome Pack along with your official Certifiacte of Installation for your insurer. 



Smartphone D-iD App

For years Cat 5 and S5 Tracking systems have relied on the vehicles driver carrying the Driver ID Cards on their person. This is something that has always been a requirement of Thatcham, unitl now. 

Knowing that carrying these tags can be a pain for some vehicle owners Smartrack have now gone way beyond and developed the D-iD App which uses sophisticated technology along with Artificial Intelligence to confirm authorised drivers without the need to carry a driver tag. It is all done via the app installed on your smartphone. Simply by having your smartphone in your vehicle the tracking system can be set in one of two modes, Automatic or Manual. Manual will send a push notification to the phone, on each start of the engine for you to acknowledge and mark the vehicle as "safe" or, if in Automatic then the just simply deactivate the S5 with no involvement from the driver.

Did not disappoint me. Everything functions as it should and no traces of anyone ever having the car in bits.
Tesla Model S
ReviewerMr J Clarke / FromBradford / Date
It made a refreshing change to deal with a company who gave so much confidence in themselves, their products and their ability to execute the installation at 7.30am as promised. Mark will always be my go to for my vehicle security needs. The prices were competitive and there was no issue with me paying via BACS on receipt of my vat invoice. The device works well and my vehicle was clearly well looked after and in capable hands. Thank you so much.
ReviewerMr J Woods / FromWakefield / Date
Perfect from start to finish. 5 Stars
Range Rover SVR
ReviewerMrs Johnson / FromBarnsley / Date
Very pleased with the whole service and product. Mark arranged everything with the dealer and the app for the ID was very easy to set up when I collected my car. I'm looking forward to using Automatic mode though but I was advised before purchase that it would be a few weeks away.
Great Service
ReviewerMs T Whiteman / FromTingley, Wakefield / Date
Very pleased with the swift response due to my insurance requesting the fitment within 7 days. Mobile fitting service at my office was fantastic. Highly recommended.

ReviewerMr & Mrs Lewis / FromWhitby / Date
Our insurance company required us to have this system installed. We looked online and found this product. We rung the manufacturer who pointed us in the direction of safe & sound as they were the preferred installer in our area. The were very easy to deal with as was the installer who was very pleasant and did the installation at our home address. We're very pleased and would easily recommend these to others looking at having a system installed.

Great bit of kit. Love the app and the tags are a great size, simply sit in your pocket and you don't even realise they're there.
Mercedes Sprinter
ReviewerI Wild / FromBarnsley / Date
We had this installed as a precautionary measure and it gives me great peace of mind when it's left unattended. The app is a great feature and I have no complaints about Safe & Sound. I would certainly recommend both.

This is the second time using Safe & Sound with this product. It's a great bit of kit as are the company. Nothing else to say really other tha. I've never been disappointed.
Iveco Motorhome
ReviewerMr N Gedge / FromYork / Date
My insurance requested I had a Cat 5 installed so I looked online and found this company. I contacted them and we arranged the fitting there and then for the following week. They arrived on time in a well presented vehicle and carried out the work. It was obvious from watching they had a sound knowledge of my vehicle and they showed thorough confidence. I was delighted to see you can not even tell where the engineer had even been in the vehicle. The tracker works well, the app is great and they're always on the ball when I forget my tag. Very pleased and would certainly recommend them.

ReviewerMr R Holdsworth / FromWakefield / Date
I've had the product before so I knew what to expect. Not one issue from start the finish with Safe & Sound who were better to deal with than the previous company. I would highly recommend both the system and the installer.
