You Did What with Your Phone?

Yeah. That's what you'll be hearing when you install the Viper VSS5000 SmartStart security and remote start system in your ride. Imagine there's no remotes. It isn't hard to do. No need for fobs or keyrings, just integrate your phones. Imagine all the people, staring in disbelief as you turn off your alarm and start your engine from your phone... You may say we're all crazy, but we're not the only ones. We hope someday you'll join us, and alarms and phones will live as one. No really, you can completely integrate your Smartphone with your alarm and do everything a keychain remote could do but through your phone instead. So lose the remote and step into the 21st century with a Smartphone integration remote start car alarm!

Remote Start Car Alarm

Remote Start

Allows a vehicles engine to active without physical contact from the user. This feature is useful for warming up your vehicles engine and transmission to operational temperatures. In cold climates you can have your interior hot or in warm climates you can cool it down before use. All of this can be done while in the comfort of your home or office.

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.

2-Way Paging

2-Way Paging

Send commands to your remote start or alarm system and receive confirmation that those commands were carried out. Obtain updates on your vehicles security status and get driver pages on the remote. If your vehicle is being tampered with, your remote transmitter will warn you and set off the vehicles alarm.

Viper SmartStart


Gives you complete control your vehicle's security and remote start system from your smartphone with the free downloadable SmartStart app. SmartStart eliminates the need of additional keychain remotes and as long as you in an area with cellphone reception, you don't have to worry about being in range of your vehicle.

    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.

    Security with Remote Start
    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.
    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.
    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.
    Smartphone Compatibility
    These are the types of smartphone systems that the car alarm system is compatible with.
    iPhone, Android, & Blackberry
    Built-in Bypass Module

    Convenient Features

    Panic Mode
    Panic mode allow the user to be able to set off the alarm from the remote.
    Trunk Release
    The trunk release option allows for integration and control of the trunk latch. Additional parts may be required.
    Valet Mode
    Valet mode is a car alarm setting that adjusts system to less sensitive settings when allowing a valet to park your car and similar settings.

    great product

    June 11, 2015

    I was looking for a security system that was different from others and I definitely got that. It's a really cool system but one thing I wish I would have seen is to be able to use the system with your phone you must pay a yearly service fee of $70 other than that this product is perfect

    will it work on mercedes ben e430 1999?
    kingf15h on Jan 20, 2015
    Best Answer: Hello Larry,

    Yes, an able installer will be able to get the kit in, because kits like the Viper VSS5000 are universal. Please check with your local installer for installation questions.

    Will the Viper VSS5000 work on a 2010 Ford F-150, 4 door, no built in navigation system?
    A shopper on Nov 20, 2014
    Best Answer: Hello,

    The Viper VSS5000 is Universal, so an able installer will absolutely be able to install the kit into your vehicle. What is not 'universal', is the bypass your vehicle requires to access the Remote Start feature. The XpressKit DBALL2 - that the website suggests - will be the bypass you seek. It is important that you take this kit to an Authorized Installer to have the bypass uploaded with your vehicle specific firmware.
