Hey guys,
I've got plans on installing a new and much more effective alarm soon (parking at a shopping center 5-6 days a week makes it a must) and this one has come up at a good price n seems to boast most if not all features n more that i was hunting.

Has anyone had one of these installed or got any info/opinions on these units?

Im yet to hear anything really about them so if you know something good or bad, please speak up - hard to find good info on the net about it.


Thanks -

I have this alarm. They are good but the remotes wear out and cost $100 each to replace. The features are great and i have found it easy to use (i didn't install it so i can't comment on how hard / easy it is to install)

Range is pretty good too.

Have you got a picture of the remote?
Im yet to see how big n ugly it is or isnt haha; i looked at some viper remotes n they were just too big for my pockets for everyday..
When you say good range how far you think it works; 10 car lenghts?
Plus how much did the alarm itself set you back if you dont mind saying..

Thanks for the input aaron.

I'll get a pic of the remote., it's quite compact i would say same or smaller than standard ford remote. perfect for any sized pocket :D :D

Mine was $1,000 inc fitting so i dont know the exact price of the alarm by itself but i think around $750?

10 car lengths is about right.
