Why EG360 Alarm?
Remote keyless entry systems have been pervasive by the end of the decade. As time and technology progress, keys have been ubiquitous when opening and starting a car. Most of us have become familiar with the idea of Remote Keyless Entry, as many new cars come equipped with the option. These systems look like a key fob with buttons that act as a remote control to lock and unlock doors and arm alarm systems. Even more cutting-edge systems are coming to market, particularly in high-end automobiles.
For convenience of Passive keyless entry — SingTech EG360
Passive Keyless Entry(PKE) is a generic term for an automotive technology which allows a driver to lock and unlock a vehicle without using the corresponding remote key buttons. The remote key can remain in the driver’s pocket and send signals to the car without the driver performing any action. A transponder built within the remote key allows the vehicle to identify a driver. The vehicle will be unlocked if authentication is successful. This process only takes some milliseconds, so the driver does not notice any delay between touching the door handle.
How does PKE work— SingTech EG360
It is imperative that all of the signals transmitted between the car and the remote key be secure to prevent theft and fraud. Therefore, the remote key analyzes the incoming wakeup pattern and the following bitstream and sends back a “response” to the vehicle via an ultra-high frequency.
Cryptographic capabilities embedded in the device enable the response to be securely transmitted, as it is impossible for unauthorized persons to access this information. The vehicle then picks up the UHF response from the remote key and cross-checks it with cryptographic information internally stored. The vehicle will be unlocked if confirmation is successful. Once inside the car, a similar process takes place when the driver start engine. The remote key must be inside the car for the engine to start. If remote key is moved from vehicle, Singtech EG360 Anti-Hijack will be activated to disable engine.
Security Concerns – Dynamic Immobilizer —–SingTech EG360
Immobilizer is an electronic device fitted to an automobile which prevents the engine from running unless the correct key (or remote key) is present. This prevents the car from being “hot wired” after entry has been achieved.
The system unlocks the vehicle when the user is approximately 2 meters away and trigger waves are sent from the car to the remote key to confirm user’s presence.
- Dynamic Immobilizer
The Immobilizer function will be automatically disabled when the system performs Hand-Shake confirmation with the transponder upon inserting the key and turning ON the ignition. The vehicle can not be started with just the key as the transponder must be present as well when attempting to start the vehicle.

If any doors are opened and closed anytime after Ignition ON , the system will check-in with the transponder, the system will immobilise if the transponder is not present.
- Passive Lock
