The AutoRing – Powerful Technology in a Compact Device. 

The AutoRing is a new in-car device to be launched in 2022, designed by Griffen Security to combat all types of vehicle theft.

As soon as someone opens the door to your vehicle, the AutoRing system springs into action. Within seconds the device will have taken high-definition photographs of the thief. Moments later, you’ll get a notification on your smartphone. This allows you to act fast and report the crime immediately.

Auto Theft is a Big Issue Worldwide, and it’s getting worse

Unfortunately, despite the advancements in vehicle technology millions of vehicles are stolen every year according to data from the United Nations*

This is the tip of a huge iceberg as many thefts are not recorded, with the statistics showing very little (or no) data for a lot of the developing world.

In 2018 alone, over 1,900,000 cars were reported stolen. That’s over 5,300 recorded every day. From 2020 onwards, the stats have been getting worse. According to the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) in the US, there were 873,080 auto thefts in 2020, a 9.2% increase from 20191.

The UK has also seen a sharp increase in auto theft of over 50% in the last 6 years. This is a global issue affecting thousands of people all over the world every day.

What is leading to the rise in vehicle theft? 

Thieves are taking advantage of keyless entry, smart keys or remote starting systems in modern cars by using Relay Theft. This high-tech thievery captures the signal from a key and boosts it, allowing the thief to start and drive the vehicle far away from the original key without activating its alarm.

Here’s an example of thieves using relay theft to silently steal a car under 1 minute! Whether you're at home or sitting in a restaurant, your vehicle could be stolen and driven far away well before you even discover it's missing.

85% of vehicles are recovered if the thefts are reported quickly. Time is of the essence and the AutoRing helps you act fast!

Who is behind the AutoRing?

AutoRing is a product line designed and built by Griffen Security LLC.

Griffen Security was founded by Gavin Wilding. Griffen developed a product called Grifflock which has been featured at the SEMA show in Las Vegas. It is a criminal’s worst nightmare because the technology is far more sophisticated and difficult to crack than almost any other traditional solution.

With the AutoRing we are taking things to the next level and we’re committed to giving vehicle owners peace of mind by helping them to be aware of a crime far earlier than ever before.
