LCD Remote

LCD Remote

Receive visual confirmations from your vehicles security system or remote start system. Features such as remote start, lock/unlock, arm/disarm and trunk release will appear on the remotes screen with its current status. An LCD remote can display warning icons when the doors, trunk or hood are open. If your vehicle is tampered with, some remotes display what part of the vehicle was affected.

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 its 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.

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.

Security with Remote Start: This means that the system incorporates both features listed above.

Security
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.
Yes
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.
No

Good Product For The Price

August 13, 2014

Alarm unit installs easily with a print out from your vehicles wiring (can be found on the net.) The only thing i have found that is wrong with this product is the 2 way remote. If you drop your keys several times the remote stops working.It isn't constructed for heavy use. I had to buy a whole new system to get a replacement remote (the Scytek people want the price of the whole system just to replace it.) Overall the alarm is built well and works well, the only detail they need to work on is the 2 way remote it just isn't built for any abuse.

Low price, loaded with features

June 6, 2009

Definitely a high quality alarm, the only problem is it has random siren chirps after the car is turned on whether or not it was on and was disarmed with the pager or if it wasn't armed.

Good for the money

September 23, 2008

I have to say this is a good little alarm for the money. You can't compare it to more expensive units, because this wasn't mean to compete in that price range.

With that being said installation is a breeze because there isn't a lot to the alarm to begin with. You don't have multiple sensors/zones, etc. Simply find where you want to mount the everything and within an hour or 2 you should be all set. It's a simple matter of splicing some wires and making everything look neat.

Works Great at First, then Close to a Year, Remote/Transmitter Would Not Respond Sometimes

April 12, 2011

I had the Astra 777 car alarm installed on my car close to a year ago, the first 9 Months was Great! system works well, it does what it is intended to do, which is to Protect the Car. Keyless Entry and Engine Kill Switch is Awesome Features, However, Recently, I'm Starting to Notice some Highly Disappointing Problems. 1st. My 2-way Remote Sometimes would Not Respond. The "Arm/DisArm" would Disappear and Any Buttons you push would Not Respond (Note: I made sure that the Battery is Full, so Low Battery Excuse is eliminated.) Unfortunate/Embarrassing Times occur when the Car is on "Arm" Mode and Kill Switch is engaged and the Car Transmitter OR Remote Would Not Respond to "DisArm" command which Equals to the Driver being Stranded without Knowing how to Manually Override the engine kill switch. But After Pressing Random and or Manual Specified Buttons and After Much Frustrations and Cursing Hurled towards the Developers, Companies, Technology and Installers. The Remote would Finally work again. Hallelujah! I am Saved from being Stranded! With all that Said, I am Afraid to Use my Car Remote Again for Fear of the Torment of not being able to Start your Car because of the Engine Kill Switch.

Good Alarm For The Price

January 16, 2011

It's a good alarm and the 2-way paging is nice lol helped me not get towed a few times... just being honest. The LCD remote is nice and the range is cool also. I have my shock sensor set really sensitive because I have to protect my system. If you are on a budget this alarm is for you.

Great for price!!

May 14, 2009

This product has not given me any troubles it is a great product for the price.
Pros - Its 2-way so you know if your alarm is going off. Has nice sounding beeps and such... I have heard some alarms that have a very gross sounding beep.
Cons - Range is perfect for at work or home or school, however if you are farther away it will not notify you your alarm is going off.

I would recommend this product if you don't want to spend a whole lot on an alarm but still want some security.

Good alternative for affordable security system

April 13, 2009

I would recommend this system for people who are looking for a decent and affordable security system. It has a 2way pager, and remote plus a variety of add on options. I think this is a good starter or entry level system that gives you a 2way pager for a very good price.

October 12, 2007

Easy to install with the detailed instructions and talk about a siren! I istalled this alarm in my truck and it is perfect for my needs. The pager remote is great and the system is so user friendly. I have quite a bit of money invested in my truck and can sleep well at night with this system hooked up!!

Piece of Mind

January 15, 2013

I purchased this alarm system some 6 months ago and I spent a total of about 6 afternoons connecting all the different features up (this unit has a lot of features.) At the time I was living in an area where car theft was the norm so I slept well at night knowing my pager would go off and the starter disable would stop the vehicle from starting in the event of an attempt.
A little about the transceiver/remote; I was able to on several occasions to arm and disarm the car from 3 city blocks away. Now that's impressive to me. The only thing that makes me angry about the unit is if you drop your keys the battery back will fall off. I lost mine once and had to pay dearly for a battery back (most of it being shipping.) Obviously this is a problem with this unit and I think ScyTek should find a fix and replace them at no charge to their customers.

Great Alarm for the price

March 28, 2009

It has a 3 beep system when the tamper alarm goes off, then a chime when the actual alarm is set off. It also has a silent arm/unarm which is nice when you don't want make lots of noise. The range is great on it. The nicest thing about this alarm though of course is that it's a two way alarm. If your car was being tampered with at night you probably wouldn't hear it (if you park your car outside or live in a crowded urban area), and the two way keychain alarm is awesome because you are alerted as long as your in 1000ft.

I liked all the features of the Astra-777,i dont have to carry two remotes i can still unlock lock open trunk and still have a panic button. I am a master auto tech for me i had no problems with wiring in all relays for all accessories for horn lights trunk release ect. The other is what i called the smart remote if you misplace you keys hit the call button(set of back up keys is nice to have) and the remote beeps till you find it. Only one problem i found with smart remote is battery cover would get knocked off easy. The tech help line was very helpful on one question i had. If i had to buy another alarm i would buy another astra 777.
