Autowatch 695 CAN-BUS

The 695CAN is a CAN-BUS alarm made by Autowatch, it is rated as a Thatcham CAT 2-1 alarm and is designed for vehicles with existing remote Keyless entry and an Immobiliser. Given the Thatcham rating that means it is more then complies with any requirements of a “5 star alarm”. Being a CAN-BUS alarm the 695CAN communicates with the vehicles CAN-BUS platform so needs to be programed for the specific vehicle it is to be installed into.

The list of compatible vehicles is updated frequently and will continue to grow as most new cars released feature CAN-BUS technology. The Autowatch has the option to operate from a separate Autowatch remote on selected vehicles, this will almost certainly be a  cheaper option (on supported vehicles) then purchasing an additional remote key from your local car dealer.

Ultrasonics come as standard with the 695CAN along with a digital battery back-up siren. As the siren has no over-ride key this gives the installer the option of locating it in a hidden or hard to access location.

Wireless Sensor Options

Sensors such as a Wireless P.I.R. or Wireless Reed Switch can be programed to the Autowatch, this is particularly useful in motor homes where running cables can be time consuming and unsightly.

The 695CAN has all the usual features that you would expect for a high end alarm and will support having additional sensors added such as a level/tilt sensor. It also has a  pager output so can be wired up to a tracking system

    Hi Martin,

    You fail to mention what make/model your Motor home is? If it is the 695CAN alarm you are after then check the list for compatibility.

    As for details about the installation. This is the sort of thing I would run through in person when inspecting the vehicle and giving a quote.

    I have a 695RLC fitted which flashes the blue light when armed. Is this normal please and how much battery is drained per day please?

    Hi Alen,

    Can I suggest that you read the review that you’ve just commented on as it clearly mentions that the alarm comes with a blue LED. The user manual can also be found at the end of the post.

    Hi, what is the differance between the Autowatch 695 RLC CAN BUS and the 446RLC CAN BUS? Does the 695RLC canbus have the same wiring as the 446 RLC Canbus

  10. Julian Julian says:

    Hi Stephan,

    They are both the same alarm, just different names for different markets/countries.

    Do you know if the 695 supports disarming via the button in the tailgate on a 2011 Legacy GT Wagon? Installer in Auckland tells me it’s not possible and requires a wired bypass so the alarm is not triggered when the tailgate is opened. Seems odd to me given that it is disarmed when opening the front doors when the fob is in proximity. Certainty the lock button in the tailgate arms the alarm. Just after a second opinion.

    Hi Rhys,

    I can’t say that I’ve installed a 695 into that generation Legacy, but do know that the vehicle has an interesting CAN-BUS system. It’s a “odd” car electrically.

    The Cobra AK4615 requires addition wiring to make it disarm when opening the boot so I’d expect that the Autowatch system would need something similar done.

    Personally I’ve always found the Autowatch tech sheets to be very light on wiring information, they certainly lack a list of vehicle specific functions which can make things tough for an installer.
