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.
Yes

January 20, 2011

i purchased the astra 4000 and 3 months after it got installed. the remote start stop working. i purchased it before the winter bc i wanted to use it when it gets cold outside. i am using the replacement remote that does not have the remote start because the remote start does not work. i am very disappointed with the remote, and does not advise anyone to buy it. i will recommend you to buy the viper.

my alarm

October 4, 2010

I've had this product for about six months and i installed it on my 08 magnum. It's really good from a good distance. The remote start is the best part of the alarm to me. if you have a magnum make sure you get a bypass transponder as well. It's the only way to install any starter kit on them.

A bargain

November 9, 2007

I am a professional back yard remote starter installer. This system has the features and function of a much higher priced system. This, by far, is the best bang from the buck. I've dealt with Compustar, Ultra Starters, and now Scytek. If you want a great system and don't want to spend a bunch of money, this is your kit.

Best Bang for the Buck

February 17, 2011

Purchased this remote alarm for my Chevy Tahoe and was very pleased at its performance, I purchased another one. I have another vehicle with a Viper 5601 but it cost more and performs less than the Astra 4000. I work at a fleet service center and although there are several other makers of remote alarms in the same price range, I found the Astra to provide more than adequate features for anyone looking to outfit their vehicle with a safe and reliable remote start/alarm. The only flaw I experienced is the "two-way" fob battery cover tends to fall off. I hope the company will look into developing a more secured latch. I would highly recommend anyone on a budget looking for a quality alarm to look no further as this alarm has more features then the average person would need.

great alarm!

November 9, 2010

I bought this alarm for my honda accord and it has served it's purpose very well. It's two way pager feature is excellent for knowing my car is protected. I especially love the sensor delete feature which allows me to turn off the shock sensor when parking in certain areas and avoid false alarms. The remote start also allows me to start the car in the morning and have it warm and ready by the time I get inside. It has a long range remote which is useful since I live on the 4th floor of an apartment building and have underground parking. My only gripe is the battery life of the remote, but AAA batteries are cheap enough. Overall it is a great alarm which is easy to install.
