The new 1-mile range 5900 Responder SST System is one of the most advanced 2-Way Security and Remote Start system in the world! This remote start car alarm utilizes Spread Spectrum Technology, digital frequency hopping, and the ability to have a signal transmitted, even if the frequency is blocked. The Responder SST has a dual error correction system to fight signal data corruption and minimize signal interference. The end result is an astounding range of up to one full mile!

The interactive display on the Responder 2-way remote confirms all commands (almost instantly) with easy to understand icons and text.

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

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.
Yes

Viper VS5900 Alarm system

September 8, 2009

The Viper alarm system purchased from Sonic Electronix.com has been wonderful. It has been fully functional and I haven't had a problem with it yet. I bought this system six months ago and it has saved me a lot of money from potential break -ins because my vehicle is armed with a grade A alrarm system.
Thanks Sonic Electronix!!!!!

Viper 5900 Alarm 2 Way Pager

June 18, 2009

Viper 5900 is an incredible alarm. I added a scanner to it, and nobody comes close to my car. Alarm is very loud, and stays on even when the battery is disconnected. Auto start is the best, even starts from 4 or 5 blocks away with no problem. I would recommend this alarm to anyone serious bout having a good alarm, and lives in a bad neighborhood.

Awesome alarm/starter

May 21, 2009

My office is 3/8 of a mile from the parking lot. It reaches is easily. Others in the office have to go to a cold car in the winter but not me. I start it before I leave and by the time I get to my car it has melted frost/ snow of the front window. Also has the option to turn on the rear defroster. I also like that it tells me when someone is messing with my car since I can't see it. Very nice. I highly recommend it.

April 21, 2009

I'm on the fence with this product. the starting capabilities are pretty good but not at more than a mile away unless you have a clean shot at it! The battery life of the starter is not what you would expect, the life is used up rather fast. I have had the product for about 6 months and have already gone through about 8 or 9 batteries. The scary thing about that is if your battery dies before you disarm your vehicle, and not remember to push the kill button on the alarm your dead in the water. But as for the alarm it's self the product works rather good. These are my two cents. Hope this helps.

Good alarm system.

March 3, 2009

Pros: Reliable alarm system, seems good so far. The 2 way controller so I can double check its lock without going back to the car. The range is fantastic. Rarely far enough away from the car to be out of range unless you're in a really big shopping centre.

Cons: The controller chews the batteries up like pop corn. Viper still haven't thought about remote start on a manual car (thought a turbo timer can ensure that you leave it in neutral as you leave the car). The inbuilt turbo timer needs to be turned on each time you want to use it...really sucks better off buying a separate one.

I think in stores this alarm is overpriced and not worth the dollars spent. However even with the current exchange rate buying from this website makes it worth the wait and they ship straight to australia! :)

this alarm is almost perfect if Viper made the alarm so the turbo timer is automatic and that you can lock your car while the motor is running it would solve both my cons for the alarm. You would no long be able to coincidentally leave the car in gear as the car would running as you leave the vehicle. Surprised Viper hasn't thought of this yet as no one thinks much of the current turbo timer feature.

If you live in a bad area or do not feel comfortable leaving your vehicle in public parking lots, get this alarm. It's very helpful if you live in an apartment and it goes off because you are notified that your alarm is sounding. This alarm has so many features and so many great add-on sensors.

Viper 5900 Remote Starter Car Alarm System

February 25, 2009

I own a 2002 Isuzu Rodeo, and purchased the Viper 5900 to replace my much older basic Viper model. I'm very pleased with it's upgraded performance. I'm all for the remote starter and option for rolling down the windows. Although you must purchase a bypass switch for this, I do like this convenience. I would definitely be sure to go to a professional installer though. It took three hours to remove the old system and replace it with the new one, and I still had to take it back to have the wiring adjusted, so it's not a do it yourself job. I don't think I'll ever have to purchase another alarm system. THANKS!!!!!!!

This alarm and remote starts works great. I have no specific pro's as it's just all over GREAT

Con's:
Install took me a while, would imagine it's costly to have done?
I had to get an extra relay for my trunk pop/opener
Battery in remote wears out in less than a month

(I don't know durability, marked a 5 as it seems high quality and this software would not let me leave N/A...)

I love my unit I work in a gas plant in and i work a 12 hour shift, and when it's time to go home it's cold outside. In 20 to 30 minutes I can start my car and have it be warmed up when it's time to go home.

Great alarm and remote start. The only 'fault' with the product is the one mile distance. It will offer you a legit 1/2 mile anywhere you go, but not the 1 mile.... however, by the time you can start your car, and walk to it. it will be completely warmed up, or cold.

Viper 5900 Responder SST VS5900

May 19, 2009

I currently have the Viper 5900 Responder SSTVS5900 car alarm installed in my Acura RSX. It works fine. Does a really great job with "auto start". I use auto-start every morning before getting out of bed to get ready for work. This feature is especially useful during the very cold mornings. I even used auto-start while I am on the 5th floor of the building where I work, and the signal goes through without problems.

I chose Viper as the brand name alarm because I have an old car that was also installed with the Viper car alarm, and it too had "auto-start". I have had that alarm for 10 years, and never had a single issue with it. I would go witht he Viper alarm without second thoughts.

November 19, 2008

Sometimes it's the little things that make a difference. If you purchase this alarm and remote start system and install all the features you will be blown away. I made the jump from a cheap $50 alarm to this one and i can honestly say I love it. From the quiet chirp, to my blue dome light turning on when i hit the unlock button, to the lights flashing to the remote start feature....its all good. Only con is it that it only comes with one remote, so you have to be extra careful to treat the one you do get with care because it's quite pricey to replace.
