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.
Yes
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.

Good price!

July 26, 2009

This security system is pretty good for what you pay for, the installation was pretty easy. It took about 4 hours to put it in. One of the things i don't like is that we couldn't hook up the one button press unlocks the drivers door, and two opens all the doors. And the pager makes this annoying noise when you lock or unlock the car. The pager is also kind of thick and not very comfortable in the pocket. For the value, you get what you pay for. At least it works though!!!

This item did everything that I wanted it to do. It has the remote LCD two way pager, which is why I bought this alarm. It works in my workplace and thats especially critical to me cause thats where I had been broken into before. The pros are the paging feature, adjustable shock sensor and the cool antenna. The cons are that the outside of the pager screen has gone black, leaving me with half the screen and it has never been dropped or smushed.
