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.

Security with Remote Start
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.
Button(s)-only with LED Lights
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.
Buttons with LED Lights
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.
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.
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

Panic Mode
Panic mode allow the user to be able to set off the alarm from the remote.
Trunk Release
The trunk release option allows for integration and control of the trunk latch. Additional parts may be required.

Alarm Features

Paging Range
The maximum distance that the car alarm system will work with the wireless remotes.
1,500 Feet
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”.


Remote Start Features

Cold Start Timer
Great for those on a set schedule who need their vehicle to warm up at a specific time every morning for example.
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.
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.

do this come with or need a by-pass module?
Maria T on Apr 24, 2015
Best Answer: Yes. It requires a bypass module for newer vehicles with some type of key immobilizer. The directed electronics piece is cheap and effective. Range is so-so on the ARS.1 .
