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.
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.
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.

Number of Car Alarm Channels
The total number of channels that the car alarm system supports. These channels can include locking and unlocking doors, opening the trunk, remote start, and many other options.
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 Diesel Engines
This means that the remote start system will work with diesel engines.
Engine Start Intervals
Some remote start systems offer feature to protect your engine. The engine start interval feature will start the car at particular time intervals or when the engine has reached a certain temperature. This feature prevents the engine block from freezing.
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.

Not a Scytek but suprising bang for buck

February 9, 2009

A little unconventional in the wiring process, but once you get past that its pretty straight forward to program and surprisingly reliable, My vehicle endures significant abuse being part daily driver, part drifter, and part grocery getter. The car sees an unreal amount of mileage in a year and its all in and out, stop and go, This being the case I'm particularly hard on key fobs and I'm glad to say I'm still using the original fob i put on my key ring 6 months ago with no need for the backup or a fresh battery. Occasionally the unit will neglect to chirp when arming or disarming, but has no confusing modules to deal with and features plenty of auxiliary's to play with. If you need a stable stand alone unit for a decent price I would recommend you have a look at it.

The remote has a very long range. The alarm is very loud and is very sensitive to touch. My car is much safer with this product. I would recommend this product to everyone who is looking for good value for money!

Can't live without!

May 27, 2009

I live in the northeast so we are either in like tundra or desert conditions here. I have only had my remote starter for about 6 months but used it throughout the entire season! It is awesome! Looking forward to using for AC in summer! Sometimes the "catch" aka sensor doesnt pick up, but i think it is just a positioning thing.

This alarm works great. It is made by Audiovox and it performs without any flaws. If you are looking for an alarm with remote start then this is the one for you. I installed this alarm in a 1998 Cevy Silverado 1500 and with the directed bypass modual it worked great.
