There are so many features and units to choose from, what’s right for me?
Lets start with features, these pretty much fall into four categories that reflect various consumer needs: convenience, comfort, vehicle security, and personal safety. A basic alarm system will include:
- Shock sensor and entry protection, which activates the alarm whenever anyone attempts to force entry
- A panic feature that flashes the lights and activates your cars horn/siren and scares off intruders
Below are some of the add-on features that owners find valuable

Ranges: 800ft – infinity
Why would you need more than 800ft. of range? At home 800ft is plenty of range. However, think about all the other times you would like to start your vehicle…at work, at a restaurant inside the mall. or even from the locker room at your local gym. For every barrier the signal comes in contact with (wall or window), the signal drops by about half. So from your office or the store you would easily want 2500+ft range. So its important to determine how and where you will use your remote starter.
