Security services with Volvo On Call*
In addition to normal safety services and legislation-related1 services, the system also offers a number of security services.
These services allow the early detection of a break-in in the car, and if the car is stolen, it can be traced and possibly deactivated.
In addition, remote unlocking is possible if the car keys have been locked in the car or have been lost.
Theft Notification (TN)
VOC sends a signal automatically to the VOC service centre in the event of break-in or theft (if the car's alarm system has been activated).
If the car's alarm system is activated then the VOC Service Centre will be notified automatically after a certain time. If the alarm is switched off using the remote control key then the service will be interrupted.
Stolen Vehicle Tracking (SVT)
If theft or other unauthorised use of the car has been discovered, then the car's owner along with the police and the VOC service centre agree that the car should be traced. The VOC service centre sends a message to the car to determine the car's position. Following which, the police or other authority are contacted.
Remote Door Unlock (RDU)
If the car's remote control key has been lost or locked in the car, it is possible to remotely unlock the car within the next 5 days assisted by the VOC Service Centre after the required verification with PIN code has been approved. Following which, the VOC Service Centre unlocks the car remotely according to agreement.
Remote Vehicle Immobiliser2
Monitoring and deactivation of a stolen car.
If the car is stolen then the owner or authorities contact the VOC Service Centre.
After having been in contact with the authorities, the VOC service centre then deactivates the remote control keys in order to prevent the car from being started. A deactivated car can only be restarted by contacting the VOC Service Centre and when the required verification with PIN code has been approved. Following which, the VOC Service Centre performs activation of the car.
