"Under the name URBAN GUARD, Mercedes-Benz is introducing a new holistic product and special equipment category for all model series. This bundles existing and future offers for protecting the vehicle against vandalism and crime. With URBAN GUARD - an intelligent combination of hardware and digital solutions - Mercedes-Benz is responding to the growing global customer demand for security and protection of property. Two special equipment packages, URBAN GUARD Vehicle Protection and URBAN GUARD Vehicle Protection Plus, are planned from mid 2020. Some URBAN GUARD products will also be available through the Mercedes me Online Store and will be activated at a later date. The two packages URBAN GUARD Vehicle Protection and URBAN GUARD Vehicle Protection Plus, in combination with Mercedes me, allow for the all-round monitoring of the parked vehicle. URBAN GUARD includes a burglary and theft alarm system, a towing protection system with visual and acoustic warning when a change of position is detected, an alarm siren, an interior protection system (triggers when there is movement inside the vehicle) and a pre-equipment for theft and parking collision detection. The vehicle sensors register when the parked and locked vehicle is jostled or towed away - or when someone tries to break into the vehicle. If the service is activated, the driver is then informed via the Mercedes me app. A push message tells him, for example, how badly the parking damage is and in which area of the vehicle. As soon as the vehicle is started again, this information also appears once on the media display.
