An Alarm So Good You'll Want Another One

Introducing the all-new Encore E4 2-way paging car alarm! This alarm was designed to compete with the alarm company big dogs and leave them in the dirt. You'll find the same sleek looks and top notch features that you'd see from Encore's competitors for a fraction of the cost. These alarms were also designed with simplicity in mind and with their easy to follow instruction manuals, the average DIY'er can install these in no time. Get yours today!

ASK technology

ASK Technology

Amplitude Shift Keying or "ASK" technology outperforms typical AM and FM transmitting seen in competing products. ASK carries more data per transmission and is less susceptible to interference from radio signals in the area. As a result, you get up to 60% more range than competing systems and faster response time. In addition, ASK uses less power than AM/FM, giving you a longer battery life.

Sleek remote control

Sleek and Modern Remote Controls

Encore remotes feature real antennas built into the remote. Don't be fooled by an antenna shape on competing brands. Those brands use a simple traced circuit board design which is highly susceptible to interference. Encore remotes have a real, built-in antenna for extra long range and performance. These sleek, modern remote controls are built solid. Unlike some competitors that simply glue their remotes together and use cheap plastic, Encore uses screws and a sturdy plastic that is built to withstand whatever lifestyle you partake in. The crystal clear 2-way LCD pager displays command confirmation with easy to read letters and icons. Ever dropped your keys? Encore remotes will withstand the nastiest falls. And with their ergonomic shape, no other remote will feel as comfortable in your hand as these will.

Encore Alarm Siren

Ear Shattering 120dB Siren

Encore uses an ear-splitting 120 dB siren to make sure thieves stay far away from your vehicle. Unlike competitors that use 115 dB sirens, Encore's siren is 5 dB louder. While this might not seem like much, a 5 dB increase is the difference between a rock concert (115 dB) and a thunderclap (120 dB)! Now that's some serious volume!

Encore alarm brain

Encore Has Brains

Lots of brains. Due to precision manufacturing and high quality components, your alarm brain wont miss a signal. And with their ruggedly built construction, you can install these alarms virtually anywhere in any kind of vehicle. Encore is so sure that their product is built to last, they offer a Limited Lifetime Warranty on their alarm brains.

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.
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.

Why did you choose this?
Sonic Electronix Store
I didn't need or want remote start, it's new tech, has anti-carjacking, code-hopping with anti-scan, starter disable, selectable horn chirp, and dome lights and parking lights are turned on automatically when the alarm is deactivated. It's everything I wanted in an alarm system (except PC connectivity), and it's on sale. I will try to install the system myself, and post a review on the Sonic Electronix website.
