WHAT IS CAN?
Controller Area Network
Communication Protocol for microcontrollers
Each controller performs specific tasks
3 CAN types
Single and 2 Wire
CAN is a standardized communication protocol used by automakers to control the vehicle’s electronic systems.
CAN TECHNOLOGY TREND
Advantages that CAN brings for car manufacturers:
Fewer wires and reduced human labour
Production Time Decreases
CAN TECHNOLOGY EFFECT ON AFTERMARKET
The compatibility between analog (hard wired) security systems and cars using CAN protocol dramatically decreases as automakers continue to adopt CAN.
Issues with hardwired analog systems:
Difficult to install new security systems on new cars
Increased install time
High of Damage Risk to car’s electronics
No certain success
Interface with CANBUS is the FUTURE of Security and Convenince.
CANBUS OEM UPGRADE
New CANBUS enabled systems from Directed add full security to the factory keyless entry system.
Directed CANBUS security upgrade systems are vehicle specific. They are programmed with vehicle specific firmware that communicates directly with the OEM CANBUS system to monitor and interact with the electronic functions of the vehicle.
Three hardware platforms cover the three types of CANBUS systems currently in use by OEM vehicle makers; FT, SW, and HS.
Directed’s CANBUS systems use certified CAN transceivers to insure accurate communications without data collision and work seamlessly with all factory electronics. Directed systems do not use “bit bang” data messages on the OEM bus.
Directed CANBUS security systems use the OEM keyless entry remote to control arm and disarm via the vehicle’s CANBUS system, communicating with the vehicle via ultra secure, high-speed digital data.*
Door, hood, trunk, and ignition protection.
Built-in Stinger® Doubleguard® Shock Sensor
Revenger® 6-tone Siren
Failsafe® Starter Kill
Parking Light Flash
Horn Honk Output
Optional Sensor Input (MUX) Port
Directed CANBUS security systems are all Remote Start compatible and can be used to activate a 561T remote start module.

KEY PRODUCT ADVANTAGES
CANBUS allows the Directed system to communicate with the vehicle via high speed digital data, through either a single wire or a twisted pair, which ensures a robust connection with minimal wiring connections to the vehicle.
Connection to the CANBUS eliminates the need for many of the analog necessary in traditional, hard-wired, security systems cutting the installation time, in many cases, down by as much as 50%.
CANBUS communicates with most of the electronic security and convenience systems throughout the vehicle, so the alarm remains in-sync with the vehicle at all times.
When the vehicle is equipped with a factory security system, it works in sync with Directed CANBUS security system and all factory functionality is retained.
Faster installation time, increased reliability, perfect interface with OEM systems.
