I had the Astra 777 car alarm installed on my car close to a year ago, the first 9 Months was Great! system works well, it does what it is intended to do, which is to Protect the Car. Keyless Entry and Engine Kill Switch is Awesome Features, However, Recently, I'm Starting to Notice some Highly Disappointing Problems. 1st. My 2-way Remote Sometimes would Not Respond. The "Arm/DisArm" would Disappear and Any Buttons you push would Not Respond (Note: I made sure that the Battery is Full, so Low Battery Excuse is eliminated.) Unfortunate/Embarrassing Times occur when the Car is on "Arm" Mode and Kill Switch is engaged and the Car Transmitter OR Remote Would Not Respond to "DisArm" command which Equals to the Driver being Stranded without Knowing how to Manually Override the engine kill switch. But After Pressing Random and or Manual Specified Buttons and After Much Frustrations and Cursing Hurled towards the Developers, Companies, Technology and Installers. The Remote would Finally work again. Hallelujah! I am Saved from being Stranded! With all that Said, I am Afraid to Use my Car Remote Again for Fear of the Torment of not being able to Start your Car because of the Engine Kill Switch.

This product has not given me any troubles it is a great product for the price.
Pros - Its 2-way so you know if your alarm is going off. Has nice sounding beeps and such... I have heard some alarms that have a very gross sounding beep.
Cons - Range is perfect for at work or home or school, however if you are farther away it will not notify you your alarm is going off.

I would recommend this product if you don't want to spend a whole lot on an alarm but still want some security.

April 13, 2009 Good alternative for affordable security system

I would recommend this system for people who are looking for a decent and affordable security system. It has a 2way pager, and remote plus a variety of add on options. I think this is a good starter or entry level system that gives you a 2way pager for a very good price.
