Lets one remote control operate a second alarm in a different vehicle.
2-stage Shock Sensor
Provides a warning chirp if your car is lightly bumped. A full siren blast occurs if the vehicle is hit harder.
Auto Zone Bypass
If a sensor is violated and remains violated or becomes defective, the brain will ignore the sensor and rearm automatically. If someone opens a door, then closes it on his way out, the system will rearm, and the violated door sensor will reset and continue to protect your vehicle. If you leave a door open by mistake, Auto Zone Bypass will ignore that trigger and arm the rest of the system.
Powers your alarm if your main battery dies or is disabled by a thief.
Level 1: Triggers the alarm after the driver has been forced from the vehicle with the engine running. The alarm is delayed so you'll be a safe distance away from the carjacker before the siren blasts. This feature also engages the starter disable circuit.
Level 2: A code must be entered every time you start your vehicle. This feature prevents someone who has stolen your keys and remote control from getting away with your car (or foils a carjacker who strikes before you start your car). Crime Guard calls this feature Vehicle Recovery.
Dome Light Output
Turns on the interior dome light when you disarm the alarm.
ETR Technology or Extended Remote Range
Lets you activate your system from a greater distance — good for personal protection and locating your car.
Tells you which sensors were tripped when the alarm was triggered.
Detects movement inside, or, in some cases, outside the vehicle. Two-zone/2-stage motion sensors provide a warning alert when an exterior zone is violated and trigger the alarm if a second, interior zone is violated. Great for jeeps and convertibles.
Parking Light Flash
Flashes your parking lights when the alarm is triggered, armed, and disarmed.
Personal Panic Alarm
Lets you use your remote to set off the alarm in case of a personal emergency. Standard feature on all systems we offer.
|Use your remote control to pop the trunk open, lock your doors, or activate your panic alarm.|
Random Code Encryption or Varicode2 Transmitting System
2 terms for anti-code grabbing, the feature which prevents thieves who use a special receiver to intercept your remote control code from using it to defeat your alarm.
Remote Door Lock/Unlock
Lets you use your alarm's remote to control your car's power door locks. May require installation of external relays.
You can use your remote to activate a power trunk release or roll up power windows (relays and roll-up modules required).
Prevents starting of the engine after the alarm has been armed. This prevents a thief who has broken into your vehicle from driving it away.
