When the bike detects movement it’ll give a warning sound and flash its lights. If this movement continues for over a minute, the alarm will enter the second phase. The alarm will now sound continuously, and the lights will keep flashing.

If the alarm isn't disabled within two minutes, the system will enter its third phase. All sounds will stop, and the lights will flash ‘S.O.S’ to indicate theft. The bike will automatically broadcast its location to VanMoof, and the motor and all smart functionality will be disabled. If the alarm’s third phase was accidentally triggered and your bike locks down, just connect with your VanMoof app and your bike will disarm again.
