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.
2-way Paging
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.
Number of Remotes
The number of remotes included with the alarm system purchase.
Number of Buttons on Primary Remote
The amount of buttons on the Primary Remote generally equals the number of functions that you can use your remote for. Some remotes have auxiliary buttons which can perform more than one task per button.
Main Transmitter Type
LCD and OLED transmitters display various screen savers, warnings, alerts and other features on the face of the remote, rather than first generation button-only transmitters. They provide more information typically and other features.
Sidekick Remote Transmitter Type
Some car alarms and remote start systems come with more than 1 transmitter, which is referred to as the "sidekick" transmitter. Most LCD/OLED systems come with a button-only sidekick transmitter, while select units come with an additional LCD/OLED transmitter.
LED/Display Color
The color of the LED indicator(s) on various items such as button-only car alarm transmitters, various chargers, cell phone accessories and other products.

For OLED or LCD car alarm remotes/transmitters the display color refers to the color(s) of the screen.
Number of Vehicles Supported
Some higher end car alarm systems can support multiple vehicles. This is the number of vehicles that the works with.
Number of Auxiliary Outputs
The number of auxilary outputs that the car alarm system supports. These outputs are left over from the total number of channels. They can be used to add on other options or additional features to a vehicle.
PC Programmable
Custom, advanced programming options through one or more of the following: PC, Pocket PC, PALM Pilot, Valet SW or Remote Transmitter allows for advanced controls of your alarm's functions.
Smartphone Compatibility
These are the types of smartphone systems that the car alarm system is compatible with.
GPS Tracking
These car alarms enable a user to track the position of the vehicle using GPS satellites.
Professional Installation Recommended
This will indicate whether or not we recommend going to a professional installer for this item. Some items have complex installations that should only be done be professional certified installers.
Built-in Bypass Module
System Type
This refers to the type of remote start system, whether it is an add-on or a complete kit.
Replacement Remote Transmitter
Car alarm replacement remotes are used when you damage or lose your original remote that came with your alarm. Programming of the replacement remote is required and must be done on site where the alarm is installed in the vehicle. Some remotes can be used as an additional 2nd or 3rd remote on a car alarm system.

Convenient Features

Valet Mode
Valet mode is a car alarm setting that adjusts system to less sensitive settings when allowing a valet to park your car and similar settings.

Alarm Features

Most car alarms come with a siren that can be installed. The siren will sound when the car alarm is triggered the alarm goes off.
Shock Sensor
The shock sensor is designed to trigger an alarm on light or heavy impacts and vibrations (standard sensor included with most alarms).

A dual zone shock sensor is a feature of proximity and shock sensors only. Zone 1 ( light impact on shock sensor and short motions(adjustable) on proximity sensor) will trigger warn away chirp to warn intruder that car has an alarm without setting off the full alarm. Zone 2 (heavy impact on shock sensor and extended motions(adjustable) on proximity sensor) will trigger the alarm to “go off”.

Dual Zone Shock Sensor

Remote Start Features

Turbo Timer
Some remote start systems have turbo timer feature which allows the vehicle to run for a specified amount of time after exiting vehicle. In turbocharged vehicles this prevents hot oil in the engine from choking up in the lines. Hard driving can raise engine oil temperatures to dangerously high levels. Proper cool down is essential for a healthy turbo and engine.
Compatible with Manual Transmissions
This means that the remote start car alarm is compatible with manual transmissions. Please see the item description, manual, or your professional installer for more information as to how this feature will work with your specific vehicle.

Great features

June 16, 2011

I like the features available on this alarm for the price. It allows my wife to remotely start her car, open her trunk remotely (I had to add a solenoid) and all the other normal alarm functions. It has things we'll never even use. The only downside I have found is that the AUX button must be pressed for 5 seconds. It should be more like 2 seconds.

Perfect Alarm

September 3, 2011

I got this alarm just to keep people from possibly messing with my truck. It works great and the remote has a pretty good range. I had installed 6 months ago and havent had one problem with it. I wish the siren was a little louder. But it does the job just fine.

Viper systems rock

November 30, 2011

I have install these Viper systems for about 15 years. Out of all the brands I enjoy the Vipers. They are very reliable systems. I have an old Viper 350 from the late 90's to this day installed in the same vehicle and it works the same as the day I installed it. I dont care for the on board shock sensor. I would purchase a seperate one to have the freedom of mounting the brain where I would like instead of where the shock sensor work best. Remote range is excellent. Battery life is great. This system has great flexability for installing in many vehicle makes and models. Dont make the mistake of buying cheaper systems, get the name everyone talks about. VIPER.

it had all i needed for a good price
Jacob o on Jan 30, 2015
Okay I Just bought a truck from the dealers, used and it had a Viper keyless remote; under the hood it has a sticker saying that it has a viper installed but the remote is doing absolutley nothing when I press the keys. I have not tryed new batteries yet because I am out ot town and have not gone there yet. But before I do I needed to know before I bought batteries if you have to do something else to get it to work?
Steve N on Aug 9, 2015
Best Answer: Make sure the brain for the alarm panel still exist. Usually it is under the driver side panel. If it there than replace batteries and follow link. If no brain than a new one is needed
