Remote Start Features
Overview: This Python car security system from Directed
Electronics will protect your vehicle with the most up-to-date electronic
technologies available, including Remote Start, the Stinger DoubleGuard shock sensor, the Revenger
six-tone siren, and the Failsafe Starter Kill. The system has 4 auxiliary outputs to provide keyless entry and
convenience features. The unit is covered by a limited lifetime warranty.
Note: The remote start function is for fuel injected, diesel, or hybrid vehicles only.
Responder HD 4-button Remote Control: The Python Model 594
features Responder HD 2-way communication technology in the hybrid remote start
and car security system. It comes with one 2-way Responder HD 4-button remote control and
a companion 1-way 5-button remote. The 2-way Responder HD remote is equipped
with a powerful 8 MHz microprocessor running SuperCode protocol with advanced,
software-based digital encryption and function control. Not only can you arm and
disarm the alarm and start the car, you can monitor the status of your vehicle
using the 128 x 128 pixel, color OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) screen on
the remote. The Responder HD remote has a mini-USB port for
recharging the batteries, using the supplied AC/DC adapter. Both remotes feature
900 MHz SST (spread-spectrum technology), which gives them a one-mile range.
Information Center: The Responder HD status screen contains
an information center that can display the following data:
- Remote Start remaining run time before shut-off
- Vehicle interior temperature
- Countdown and Parking Meter timer (emits warnings at 15 min, 5 min, and
Remote Control Functions: The unique Responder HD remote
control has separate lock and unlock buttons, a remote start button, and an
auxiliary button. The side-mounted rotary toggle button allows you to reach a
total of five function levels which, when used with the 4 main buttons, gives
you dozens of functions.
In addition, the companion remote has a "function" button, which can also give
you access to multiple functions. The functions you can access with the Responder HD remote include:
- Basic Commands (Level 1): Arm/Lock, Aux/Trunk, Disarm/Unlock,
- Advanced Commands (Level 2): Silent Arm, Aux 1, Silent Disarm,
- Advanced Commands (Level 3): Sensor bypass, Aux 2, Remote Valet,
Advanced Start (Timer Mode/Smart Start)
- Advanced Commands (Level 4): Silent Mode 2, Aux 3, Car Finder,
- Advanced Commands (Level 5): Car Select, Aux 4, Last Trigger,
Two-Car Control: You can operate the Responder HD 2-way
remote control system for two cars, with full command capability for both
vehicles. The Responder HD automatically checks the 2nd vehicle's availability,
and will notify you on the status screen whether it needs to be disarmed or if
the engine is running.
Control Center: In addition to the hideaway control module,
the system also includes a control center, which includes dual RF remote antennas,
the status LED, and the valet/system override switch. Typically the control
center is mounted high on the windshield or a rear or side window.
Modified Arming: The Responder HD gives you control over how
it will protect your car. Normal arming means that all the security features are
active automatically. Some security features can be turned off on a one-time
basis, if desired. Features that can be turned off include the Warn Away
response, the Shock Sensor full trigger response, or the response from other
added optional sensors. When these features are turned off, the entry points are
still monitored. The next time the alarm is disarmed, then rearmed, the system
will revert to Normal Arming. The Responder HD displays the status of all of the
sensors so you'll know the level of security you have selected.
Failsafe Starter Kill: To prevent your vehicle from being
stolen, the control unit has a built-in relay which will disable the starter.
The Automatic Engine Disable (AED) feature, when programmed "on," disables the
starter 30 seconds after the ignition is turned off. To start the car, it will
be necessary to disarm the system with the remote control.
Revenger Siren: The Model 594 includes the Revenger Soft
Chirp siren (model 514LN). It consists of six different tones in sequence. Any of
the tones can be eliminated, resulting in a unique, easily identifiable siren
sound. The siren chirps can be either full volume or six decibels quieter than
the full alarm blast.
Stinger Double-Guard Shock Sensor: The system features the
Stinger Double-Guard Shock Sensor, which is designed to pick up impacts to the
vehicle or glass. The sensitivity of the shock sensor is adjustable using the
rotary control on the back of the control module. When the sensitivity is set, a light impact will generate the
"Warn-Away" pre-warning chirp of the siren. A harder impact will trigger a full
Auxiliary Outputs: Convenience options are available through the system's
four auxiliary outputs. Some of the functions that can be accessed include trunk
release, windows open/close, left sliding door open/close, right sliding door
open/close, rear hatch open/close, sunroof open/close, audio system, and
Door Locks: The Model 594 will automatically lock your
vehicle's doors when you arm the alarm, and unlock the doors when disarming the
alarm. When interfacing with any other type of factory door lock
system besides negative switching locks, or when adding aftermarket actuators,
two relays (such as two
120E5000s) or a door lock module (such as item
will be required.
Note: If your vehicle requires the use of a Data Integration module that controls
your factory door locks, no extra parts besides the Data Integration module will
Dome Light Control: You can control your vehicle's dome
light in a number of ways:
- Security Only: The dome light activates for 30 seconds
after the system is disarmed.
- Ignition Controlled: The dome light activates for 30
seconds after the ignition is turned off.
- Door Controlled: The dome light activates for 30
seconds after the system sees a door has closed. (If door is held open for
longer than 3 minutes, the dome light will not illuminate.
- Full: The dome light activates for 30 seconds after
seeing door closure, ignition, or security disarm. (This is the factory
Valet Mode: You can prevent the system from automatically arming and
triggering by using the Valet Mode. This is very useful when washing the vehicle
or having it serviced. In Valet Mode, the security system will not arm, even
with the remote control, but all convenience features (door locks, trunk
release) continue to work normally.
Nuisance Prevention Circuitry: The Nuisance Prevention Circuitry
prevents annoying repetitive trigger sequences due to faulty door pin switches
or environmental conditions, such as thunder, jackhammers, airport noise, etc.
If the alarm triggers three times within a 60 minute period, and each time the
same sensor or switch triggers the alarm, the NPC ignores, or bypasses, that
sensor or switch (along with any other sensors or switches sharing the same
zone) for 60 minutes. Any time there is a change in the status of the sensors,
the Responder HD remote will receive a message from the system.

Remote Start Features
Remote Start Overview: The Python Model 594 can start your
car and run it by remote control for a preset
amount of time. The remote start can be used on vehicles with manual or
automatic transmissions. The status of the vehicle can be monitored by the color
on the 2-way Responder HD remote.
Advanced Start: There are two types of Advanced Start
- Timer Start: The unit can start the vehicle a set number of
timers at a set interval between starts. The system can be set to start the
vehicle 1-24 times at an interval of 1-24 hours.
- Smart Start: The Smart Start function monitors the temperature
inside the vehicle and starts the engine when the temperature reaches a
preset high or low. This allows the vehicle to be pre-warmed or pre-cooled
before you drive.
Run Time: You can program the system to run for a preset
number of minutes. The remote control can
notify you on the Responder HD remote how much of the run time is remaining. If
more time is needed, you can easily reset the runtime counter to the
Pit Stop Mode: The Pit Stop mode allows you to exit the
vehicle with the engine running during short trips into the house or convenience
Automatic Shut-down/Starter Lockout: After the vehicle is
remote started, the remote starter will shut down when the brake pedal is
pressed, the hood is opened, if the alarm is triggered when armed, or when the
remote start command is sent again from a remote control. In addition, if the
hood is opened or if the brake pedal is pressed, you cannot start the vehicle
using the remote starter.
Turbo Timer: The turbo timer mode keeps the engine running
after arriving at your destination for a programmable period of time. This
allows the system's timer to conveniently cool down the turbo after you have
left the vehicle. You can select a turbo timer mode of 1, 3, 5, or 10 minutes.
Rear Defogger: When the rear defogger circuit is connected
to the alarm output, the rear defogger will automatically come on when the
vehicle is remote started. You can also manually activate the rear defogger
after the remote start is on. If the interior cabin temperature is above 55°
F, the defogger will not activate.
Valet Takeover: This feature allows the vehicle to remain
running after the key has been removed from the ignition. This is useful for
those occasions when you wish to exit and lock the vehicle for short periods of
time while leaving the motor running and the climate controls on.
Anti-Grind Circuitry: Whenever the vehicle is remote
started, advanced anti-grind circuitry prevents the starter from engaging, even
if the key is turned to the start position. This prevents damage to the starter
Shutdown Switch: You can temporarily disable the remote
start unit to prevent the vehicle from being remote started accidentally by
switching the supplied neutral safety toggle switch to the Off position.
