This allowed me to easily control the alarm's functions and settings with an old laptop I had lying around. That's what I was looking for, and that's what I got. I was able to adjust all the settings of the alarm.
I wouldn't have been able to if I hadn't been able to get it out of valet mode. In valet mode, there's no option to control it. You can get out of valet mode by pressing the two small buttons on the remote at the same time, but that method can be disabled. If it's been disabled, and you're in valet mode, then the alarm cannot be reset with the software included in this kit. As long as you can get it out of valet mode though, the software will work fine.
