Datatool and Image4Security, two British motorcycle security powerhouses, have teamed up in a partnership that brings together physical security and industry-leading tracking technology. This partnership forms part of a wider strategy of multi-layered security. The “Lock It. Track It. Mark It” scheme uses the best of Image4’s hard security range with Datatool’s Stealth S5 Tracker and brand-new motorcycle marking kit, Datatool DNA.
Datatool, established in 1985, was one of the first UK companies to bring electronic security to motorcycles and scooters. As part of the renowned Scorpion Automotive Group, Datatool has evolved into one of the world’s leading motorcycle and scooter accessory brands, dedicated to supplying riders with the widest range of high-quality security systems and accessories. All products are produced at their state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Chorley, Lancashire, where their head office is also situated and houses their 24/7 tracking Monitoring Centre.
Datatool Stealth is the best solution for riders looking to secure their bike with a tracker. The Thatcham-approved telematics system is monitored 24/7 by their in-house monitoring team and comes with access to the Datatool App that allows riders to remotely access and manage security, safety, and convenience features.
Datatool DNA is a marking system that consists of thousands of DataDots which are brushed onto various locations on your motorcycle, scooter or ATV. The unique code on each DataDot is then stored on the Datatool secure database, which can be accessed by police if your motorcycle, scooter or ATV is stolen. The DataDots are almost invisible to the naked eye but can be detected by a UV light and magnifying device. It’s virtually impossible to locate and remove all the DataDots, making it extremely difficult for thieves to sell your vehicle or its parts without fear of being caught. The retail price of the Datatool DNA kit is £39.99, offering a cost-effective solution to motorcycle security. Technologically advanced, easy to apply and cost-effective, when paired with a Datatool tracker or alarm, Datatool DNA is a sensible addition to a layered theft deterrent.
“We are really excited about this new partnership with Image4” says Dan Balsamini, Sales Operations Manager at Datatool. “Although we operate all over the world, Datatool is incredibly proud to be a Made in Britain product and this partnership with Image4 is a fantastic collaboration of two great British manufacturers. We have been watching what the guys at Image4 have been doing for a long time and we are excited to partner with them as part of our Lock It. Track It. Mark It. Scheme.”
Image4Security are the UK’s leading design and manufacturer of garage security barriers, guaranteeing home security and peace of mind. Starting out initially as a metal fabrication business in 2009, Image4Security paved their way into the motorbike security market in 2020 with the release of the Guardsman Garage Security Barrier that is now highly regarded within the motorcycle industry. This imposing security barrier acts as both a physical and visual deterrent, utilising minimal floor space and is designed to be low enough that a bike cannot fit under or over the barrier arm.
The Apex Pro Ground Anchor is another example of Image4Security’s determination to challenge the norm. The Apex Pro is the first surface-mounted ground anchor to achieve Sold Secure Diamond rating in both Motorcycles and the much more impressive Ground Anchor categories. Testing of which included a 5-minute attack with a grinder and wrecking bar with the Apex Pro passing with flying colours. The ground anchor gives bikers a permanent fixing to chain and lock their bikes to and is imperative in the fight against crime.
“We are delighted to join forces with Datatool, who themselves share our own philosophy of challenging the norm in order to deliver the very best product to the end user. We are excited by the prospect of supporting them on the Lock It. Track It. Mark It. Scheme, as together we strive to fight and reduce crime.” David McGinnity, Operations Director at Image4Security.
