Keyless Entry

Keyless Entry

Performs lock and unlock tasks without physical contact with the vehicle. Power door locks can be controlled from several feet away or even within a building using a remote fob. The fob emits a radio frequency that is digitally encoded to prevent frequency stealing so no one can enter into your vehicle without your wireless transmitter.

Dual Zone Shock Sensor

Dual Zone Shock Sensor

This shock sensor utilizes warning chirps for minor disturbances and will trip the alarm if it detects more serious impacts or disruptions. Most dual zone shock sensors have adjustable sensitivity to reduce false alarms or warnings. These sensors let would-be thieves know that your vehicle is equipped with an advanced alarm system and to keep away.

General Features

Security System Type
This indicates whether the product is a security car alarm product, remote start module, or a combo unit that offers security with remote start features.

Security: This means that the car alarm system is just that. No bells and whistles, just a car alarm system.

Remote Start: when installed, this allows the user to start a vehicle from a remote location. Remote start modules and security with remote start alarms often require an additional vehicle specific bypass module to complete installation.

Security with Remote Start: This means that the system incorporates both features listed above.

Car Alarm
If "Yes", the system will have alarm security features to help prevent vehicle theft and tampering. Remote start modules without alarm features will have "No" for this value.
Remote Start
If the alarm or remote start module has "Yes" for this value then the system has an electronic device that allows you to start your vehicle by remote control without actually being inside the vehicle or using the key. The remote start system supplies the vehicle with power and simulates a start just as if you were inside using the key. Select vehicles require additional accessories or immobilizer/bypass modules to use the remote start feature.
No
Keyless Entry
Keyless entry allows you to remotely lock, unlock, and open the trunk of a vehicle if that is equipped with power door lock motors (actuators) and power truck motor (solenoid). Door lock controls via the remote are found on nearly all of today's car alarms.
Yes
2-way Paging
Alarms with 2-way paging inform the user via remote vibrating/audible/visual alert when the alarm is triggered. The pager must be within range to receive the transmitted signal.
No
Number of Remotes
The number of remotes included with the alarm system purchase.
2
Number of Buttons on Primary Remote
The amount of buttons on the Primary Remote generally equals the number of functions that you can use your remote for. Some remotes have auxiliary buttons which can perform more than one task per button.
4
Main Transmitter Type
LCD and OLED transmitters display various screen savers, warnings, alerts and other features on the face of the remote, rather than first generation button-only transmitters. They provide more information typically and other features.
Sidekick Remote Transmitter Type
Some car alarms and remote start systems come with more than 1 transmitter, which is referred to as the "sidekick" transmitter. Most LCD/OLED systems come with a button-only sidekick transmitter, while select units come with an additional LCD/OLED transmitter.
Number of Auxiliary Outputs
The number of auxilary outputs that the car alarm system supports. These outputs are left over from the total number of channels. They can be used to add on other options or additional features to a vehicle.
2
Smartphone Compatibility
These are the types of smartphone systems that the car alarm system is compatible with.
GPS Tracking
These car alarms enable a user to track the position of the vehicle using GPS satellites.
Professional Installation Recommended
This will indicate whether or not we recommend going to a professional installer for this item. Some items have complex installations that should only be done be professional certified installers.
Built-in Bypass Module

Convenient Features

Yes

Alarm Features

Siren

Yes
Shock Sensor
The shock sensor is designed to trigger an alarm on light or heavy impacts and vibrations (standard sensor included with most alarms).

A dual zone shock sensor is a feature of proximity and shock sensors only. Zone 1 ( light impact on shock sensor and short motions(adjustable) on proximity sensor) will trigger warn away chirp to warn intruder that car has an alarm without setting off the full alarm. Zone 2 (heavy impact on shock sensor and extended motions(adjustable) on proximity sensor) will trigger the alarm to go off.

Dual Zone Shock Sensor

Two-Way Paging Features

Interior Thermometer
Some of the higher end car alarm systems are able to detect the temperature of the cabin. The temperature can then be displayed on the remote.
No

Remote Start Features

Cold Start Timer
Great for those on a set schedule who need their vehicle to warm up at a specific time every morning for example.
No
Turbo Timer
Some remote start systems have turbo timer feature which allows the vehicle to run for a specified amount of time after exiting vehicle. In turbocharged vehicles this prevents hot oil in the engine from choking up in the lines. Hard driving can raise engine oil temperatures to dangerously high levels. Proper cool down is essential for a healthy turbo and engine.
Compatible with Diesel Engines
This means that the remote start system will work with diesel engines.
Engine Start Intervals
Some remote start systems offer feature to protect your engine. The engine start interval feature will start the car at particular time intervals or when the engine has reached a certain temperature. This feature prevents the engine block from freezing.
Compatible with Manual Transmissions
This means that the remote start car alarm is compatible with manual transmissions. Please see the item description, manual, or your professional installer for more information as to how this feature will work with your specific vehicle.

Must read!

March 26, 2013

Hello fellow money savers, This product is great and would highly recommend it. There is one thing that I want to point out though. The manual said that you would need to "connect the YELLOW wire to the +ACCESSORY wire of your vehicle" This is not right (after contacting tech support). The YELLOW wire should be connected to the +IGNITION WIRE of the vehicle. Failure to do this will make the alarm arm itself while you are driving. It can also trigger the alarm while you are driving and you open the door to let somebody out. Also, you wont be able to change any of the programmable feature, you wont be able to program of any remote control, and you wont be able to stop the alarm from sounding when you activate it. For the price and quality of it + 14 programmable features, nothing can beat that.

Okay Alarm

May 31, 2011

I thought I was getting a better alarm than what I got. I guess for the price I paid it's not that bad. The alarm is not that loud. The remote does not always work so you have to hit it to get it to it to work. I was really getting it for the keyless entry feature which is fine most of the time. Sonic Electronic was an awesome seller! I will deal with them again.

Great feature-packed alarm for the price!

January 26, 2009

I was surprised at all the features this alarm has for the price. It turned out to be a great alarm. Basically pretty simple to install but the siren wire could have been longer. Biggest drawback was that there is only one accessory sensor input, but I did find that Omega makes a 3-into-1 adapter (called the #AU-EXP "ExpandaSens") that you can plug 3 added sensors into, the plug the other end (1 plug) into your alarm's main unit. This alarm's siren is truly soft-chirp but loud when activated. Nice remotes but a bit bulky. Biggest drawback about this alarm is the cheesy owner's manual and lack of technical into and troubleshooting sections. But for the price, I doubt you'll find another alarm with this many features and options.
