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.

Dedicated Trunk Release

Dedicated Trunk Release

This unit comes with trunk release capability and remote control integration for OEM alarm or add-on trunk release systems. Pop your trunk using your remote transmitter for convenience and ease of use. Carrying a handful of groceries? Arms tied up with luggage? Pop the trunk without using your key so it’s open and waiting for you when you arrive.

General Features

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.

Select vehicles require additional accessories or immobilizer/bypass modules to use the remote start feature.

Great Product for Great Price

March 6, 2013

Cheap enough but very effective. I installed it myself and works well. I'm just disappointed in their installation instructions. It's not detailed enough. I had to search through the internet and watch YouTube videos to see how it is installed. The siren that it comes with is not very loud, but there is another wire that can be connected to the horn and this makes it really loud (as it uses the car's horn). The blue LED indicator light is so bright I can see it from far away.

i like it

June 13, 2012

I just got this alarm on my 95 Civic EX coupe. I like the classic chirp noise when arming and disarming, and it has nice remotes made with a metal frame. The super bright blue interior led is menacing and flashes very noticeably, will keep the punks away. Shock sensor works well. I'm happy with it, keyless entry is a nice plus.

Great alarm for the price

December 19, 2011

The G20 is a very good alarm for a very reasonable price. Though installing it took about 6 hours for me, it was all worth it. With this alarm I am able to arm my car, and lock and unlock the doors. It has 2 alarm modes the first being a warning, if it senses a light tap or vibration. Sometimes my car does not register the vibrations. The second is the full alarm that lasts about 45 seconds. I was able to hook this up to my horn and parking lights and it is very loud and attention catching. This alarm also hooks up to the ignition which automatically locks the doors when started and unlocks the doors when off. The LED for the alarm is a bright blue that is very noticeable to scare off any thieves. Overall a very good alarm that I would defiantly recommend.

VERY awesome alarm! ScyTek rocks!

November 12, 2010

This is my FOURTH ScyTek alarm and I love them! Before I got the G20 I was ready to order a different model but called ScyTek to see if the plugs would interchange but was told no. But he advised me that the G20 was a better alarm than than the one I was looking at. He was right! This has been 100% trouble free! Amazingly, the remote works from almost a city block away! I've become a loyal ScyTek fan and will always highly recommend them. I have a 3-way splitter on mine, so I can plug 3 sensors to 1 plug, and have shock sensor, glass sensor, and proximity sensor. I did, however, purchase a louder aftermarket siren. I love all the features you can turn off or on or change. Nice!

Good Product

May 23, 2013

The install instructions are vague but has the information required. The only problems and things I do not like is the range and sometimes it locks the car when I press the unlock button on the fob. Other than that it is a good product.

"Fitting the Bill"

March 13, 2013

This product was ordered and arrived in a very timely manner in good shape. However, one of the "fob-remote" controllers did not work. I had no knowledge of this until I completed the installation. Now I need to know how to replace/repair said item. The instructions were a bit vague for a novice.... but adequate.

March 26, 2012

Bought this alarm system for the used car that i purchased. Installation sheets were simple. The only problem i had was the range and the loudness of the horn. Product could use a louder horn. But then again i might just be comparing it to my blackwidow z5 alarm. Overall great alarm for the price!!

March 14, 2012

Great alarm for a great price! it has worked great in my car! love it love it love it. I can now rest assured that my car is being looked after when i'm not there. I really appreciate the ability to open my trunk with the push of a button (i had to buy a universal trunk release from ebay, great deal too) and this was all installed by a pro in less than 30 mins! i'm a happy camper =)

I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND

February 17, 2012

I have had this alarm 2 days and already the alarm horn doesn't work correctly. I press the unlock or lock button, even though the alarm goes off there is no sound. Lights flash but no sound. When it does sound, it's real low. If the volume should be on 100% its on 8%, which is no use. Some one could rob the car with the alarm going off and i wouldn't even hear it. All it does is lock and unlock my doors. For that i could have saved my money and just used my key. But it seems to work for other people so try it for your self if you have $35 to burn. Keep in mind you get what you pay for.

December 15, 2011

If installed correctly, this system can give you all the security you will ever need. Adjustable sensitivity makes it possible for you to ward people off or keep silent waiting for someone to come. Definitely worth the value of the model.

GOOD ALARM

October 2, 2011

This was a good alarm for the money, does what it says it does, and for a good price. There is no need to buy a $200 viper alarm when you can just get this that does the same thing, the instructions are not good, and give you no directions, but once you figure it out, it all works out.

Great overall value

September 27, 2011

I recently purchased the Scy tek G20 from reading the reviews on this site. What a great deal, and free shipping. First time installing a car alarm (I do a lot of wiring at my job) in no hurry it took approx. 4 hrs. Works like a dream! I only had to buy an additional $17.00 worth of connectors and a spdt relay for the starter kill. Keyless entry, parking light flash, starter kill, dual zone impact and all trigger switches work perfectly. Also I love the bright blue led flashing in my car. I have and will continue to recommend sonix and scytek. I like all the options and no false alarms yet. I installed unit the day after I received it, has been installed for about a week now. Again, great deal, quicker than quoted free shipping, Sonix advice and support... How can you go wrong? Siren is a little quiet but in the setup menu you can switch to your factory horn or upgrade to a bigger siren. No big deal there. Thanks again Sonic Electronix look forward to doing more business with you.

Scytek G20

July 24, 2011

I purchased a Toyota corolla 2010 a few months ago which came equipped with the Scytek G 20. This is a great product at a very reasonable price. So much so that I ordered another for installation on another family car. The G20 works well, easy to install, and I not only like it, but my friends are impressed with it. Great job guys!! I would not hessitate to recommend this product and the company (Sonic Electronics) I bought it from. They processed my order fast and efficiently.

Best deal yet.

April 21, 2011

This alarm system was a real value for the price. The electrical digram was a little vague and left you guessing. The system works great on my Ford w/o any added relays for the door locks. The arming instruction are very clear. The siren is small but loud enough to discourage intruders. The motion sensor is great and can be bypassed by remote. Good Buy.

My 3rd ScyTek alarm and NOT my last!

November 14, 2010

The G20 was actually suggested to me right from the Customer Support folks at ScyTek! I was going to buy another model number and called to ask it if would be a direct plug to all my current wiring. They said no. But it was still a simple install because ALL the wire colors and codes were the same. A simple cut & connect was all it took. I love the G20 and would never hesitate to buy another one for my next car! VERY easy to install (if you know what you're doing). Super bright LED that can be seen for blocks! Remotes work from almost a block away! This is the nicest alarm I have purchased in MANY YEARS!
