My cousin show me this remote and I love it. It is wonderful. You can check everything in your car in the remote when you are far away. You know if someone try to force it, etc. I recommend this remote, I bought the alarm viper 791XV and a remote extra. Hopefully you try it, it is worth it.

The DEI Viper 791vx and how much fun you will have with the 2-way Remotes

August 18, 2006

I Purchased the DEI Viper 791vx security system. I did have it Professionally installed into my 94 Ford Mustang Convertible. I have had the Viper 791vx for one year and three months. First of all if you decide to purchase the Viper 791vx make sure you choose the right professional installer and also figure out if it's in your best interest financially before you purchase the security system. Now what I mean about the right installer is some companies do a better job with installing certain products than others. So if you get a certified installer like they all say they are. With a product that's a bit technical, most (now I'm not saying all) would have a difficult time trying to figure out how to install your product. By messing around with your wiring and other components in your car. You wouldn't know what could get shorted out, crimped, unhooked or damaged in some way.

There were only two problems I had with my security system unit. All the other eight times that I had to take it back to the qualified DEI installer to fix my security system. It always turned out to be an installer error. The main problem I had was the antenna. Sometimes the Viper 791vx wouldn't read the remote. The Viper 2-way remote would just keep beeping telling me that it's not able to talk to the brain of the 791vx Also in some cases it would do what you wanted but the remote is not showing any of the commands that you did. It would just keep beeping because it was sending the signal to the brain of the 791vx but not receiving the signal back to the 2-way remote model 479v. I found that the wiring of the antenna or a loose or bad connection could have caused this from the connection to the antenna over a period of about one month or two.

Also the main problem is the 2-way remotes these remotes require some extra attention. Just think of the 2-way remote (479v) is your first-born. The Viper 479v LCD 2-way remote is very sensitive but they don't really tell you that when you're purchasing it. The merchant just gave me examples like if you loose your remote or jump into the pool with your remote exc. At that time the replacement remotes where only about $80.00 and they had a lot in stock. This 2 WAY remote let's me know that commands I have sent have been received. It alleviates a lot of guesswork. At a glance, I know if my doors are locked/unlocked, if the car is running (remote start) or not. If the alarm is triggered, it even shows me the zone that was triggered when the alarm was tripped (it actually shows which door/window has been opened/broken, or if the car was hit).

For those of you who don't need the 2-way function, its important to know that you can program one-way remotes (much less expensive) to work with the alarm brain too. I strongly suggest having extra remotes for every alarm. You should also know to locate your valet button in case you have to bypass the alarm without a (working) remote. The model number is 472. It totally over priced for what it does and that's just the basic functions. The 472 remote doesn't page you back telling you if the alarm is going off. But the price range is $90.00 for the 472 remote.

Simply the BEST deal

August 12, 2010

Was a little skeptical that I found this at such a great price but boy did it turn out to be the deal of the year. I bought two and am SO pleased. They work great, and were easy to set up. I have even dropped mine 3x on blacktop, still no cracks or issues. Thanks SONIC....The only thing that has broke is the belt clip - which I need to find where to order more, but the reason that broke is from my 1 1/2 year old son getting a hold of it and pretending to be the Incredible Hulk.

July 26, 2010

This product responds to the need of the buyer in an high crime area.
That has to know right away if their vehicle has an alert what area of the car has been activated, i received the best price on the internet and the best customer service/support out there. I have a long time service tech who does all my work, i was able to beat his price and he was very surprised. Viper 479v does the job i need it to do, that is the bottom line and sonicelectronix did what they said they would do.
Help me keep my vehicle safe and sound

I got this a replacement but got a price better than what was offered in the store. I was able to start my vehicle from the class room and my truck was not insight. The Viper is as good as it gets. It is easy to install so you do not have to go to a car shop to sync it.
