The 533i4 protects your vehicle and your valuables from nearly every type of intrusion and theft with a multi-tone Psycho Siren, starter disable, and a dual-zone shock sensor. You also get three levels of carjack protection, a valet override switch, and an Automatic Transmitter Verification that warns when another remote has been programmed to operate your system. Add an optional sensor (motion, glass, etc...) to the system for additional protection. And, with two auxiliary channels, your Crime Guard remote can control a trunk release, remote start, or other function.

Details:

  • 2 extended-range remotes (1-car operation)
  • door, hood, and trunk alerts
  • Automatic Transmitter Verification (warns if another remote has been programmed to operate your system)
  • dual-stage shock sensor — provides warning chirp if your vehicle is bumped lightly, a full siren blast if it's hit hard
  • SecureCode valet/override switch
  • remote door lock/unlock
  • two remote-controlled auxiliary outputs for remote trunk release, window roll-up, remote start, or control of power sunroof
  • starter disable
  • personal panic alarm activates the alarm at the push of a button on the remote
  • back-up battery (9-volt, included)
  • Tri-level vehicle recovery protection — to foil a carjack attempt, program the alarm to sound after a 60-second countdown
  • patented, multi-tone Psycho Siren
  • ignition-controlled door lock/unlock
  • warranty: lifetime

Important Note: You may need extra relays to install this product in your vehicle. If you know how to use a multimeter and have experience working with your vehicle's electrical system, you should be able to install this car security equipment. If you're unfamiliar with installing car security equipment, please call 1-888-955-6000 to discuss your purchase with one of our Advisors.

Features
Specifications

Relays

Remote Outputs: Two relays will be needed to use both remote controlled outputs (subtract one relay for each output that will be used to trigger a remote start or window roll-up module that requires a 250mA, or less, negative trigger input).

Door Locks: If you're not using a Crime Guard quick interconnect door lock harness or another Crime Guard adapter, 2-relays will be needed to control a vehicle's power door locks; if you want to used the driver's door priority unlock feature, a third relay is needed). If you are using a Crime Guard quick interconnect harness that does not provide the driver's door priority feature and you plan on using driver's door priority, a separate relay and the interconnect harness will be needed.

Features

AU-76MP Compact Multi-tone Siren: The included siren emits two tones simultaneously, making it sound like two different sirens going off at the same time. The siren is smaller than previous Crime Guard sirens (see dimensions under the "Specifications" section below). The compact size of the siren allows more placement flexibility. A wire loop on the siren determines whether the siren emits soft or loud arm/disarm chirps.

Safety Disarm Feature: When the alarm is triggered and in a full warning condition, the safety disarm feature allows you to disarm the alarm without unlocking the doors of the vehicle. This feature allows the vehicle to remain secure, even though an activated system has been disarmed. The Safety Disarm Feature is particularly useful when the vehicle is exposed to conditions, such as storms, trains or animals, which may cause false triggers.

Tri-level Vehicle Recovery Protection: The vehicle recovery system may be activated every time the ignition is turned on (level #1), whenever the ignition is on and a door is opened (level #2), and/or activated by remote control (level #3). Through programming, any level or combination of levels may be selected.  Once Vehicle Recovery Protection has been activated, a 60 second countdown begins, and if the process is not cancelled, then the system enters into an alarm condition.

Battery Backup: To maintain protection when the vehicle's battery runs down or is disconnected, a 9V battery is included for installation inside the alarm brain (there is a door that must be removed from the brain's casing to install the battery); the battery connects to the alarm with a 2-pin plug-in harness. While operating on the backup battery, the starter kill circuit remains engaged, but the system will automatically cancel the flashing light output, the LED, and any optional sensors to conserve power.

4-Button Remotes: Two remotes are included with the system. The remotes include random code encryption, which renders code grabbing devices useless by changing each signal sent by the remotes. Each remote has 4 buttons:

  • Large left button:
    • arm
    • press and hold for 3 seconds to activate the panic mode and lock the doors 
  • Large right button:
    • disarm
    • press and hold for 3 seconds to activate the panic mode and unlock the doors   
  • Small button (lower left):  
    • pressing this button twice will silent arm alarm
    • pressing this button twice will silent disarm alarm
    • press and hold for 3 seconds to activate the channel #2 remote output (typically used to for trunk release operation)
    • if pressed within 4 seconds after arming, the sensor zone is turned off
    • when the remote Vehicle Recovery feature is programmed, can be pressed for 3 seconds while the ignition is on to remotely activate Vehicle Recovery Protection
  • Small button (lower right):  
    • press and hold for 3 seconds to activate the channel #3 remote output (typically used to trigger a remote car starter or window roll-up module)

Automatic Transmitter Verification (ATV): This system warns you whenever a transmitter has been coded to operate alarm. When the ignition is turned on, the alarm's LED flashes to indicate how many transmitters are coded to operate the system. Also, for the first 48 hours after the programming mode has been accessed or the main power has been disconnected, the siren will emit a series of chirps each time the car is started. If the LED indicates more than the usual number of transmitters are coded, you know that somebody (mechanic, valet, etc.) has managed to code an additional transmitter to the system, and you should recode your transmitters to prevent a potential thief from disarming the system.

Note:  The alarm is capable of learning the codes for up to four remotes.

Alarm Condition Recall Memory: If the system enters an alarm condition, the LED will begin to flash in sequence to indicate which zone caused the trigger; the recall memory circuit can store two consecutive zone violations (if there has been more than two zones violated, the memory will recall the two most recent violations). The LED will flash twice then pause for a hood or trunk violation, three times then pause for a door violation, and four times then pause for a sensor violation.

Remote Outputs: This alarm is equipped with two remote controlled outputs; the outputs are typically used to trigger a trunk release, remote car starter module, or a window roll-up module. Unless the outputs are used to trigger a remote start or window roll-up module that requires a 250mA, or less, negative trigger input, a relay will be needed to use each output.

Driver's Door Priority Unlock Feature: The alarm can be connected so only the driver's door unlocks when the alarm is disarmed; after the driver's door is unlocked, you may unlock the rest of the doors by pressing the arm/disarm button on the remote within 5 seconds of disarming the alarm. In addition to the two relays recommended for the standard door lock/unlock feature, a third relay is needed to use the driver's door priority unlock feature.

Programmable Features: The following programmable features are easily programmed using only the ignition, valet button, and a transmitter:

  • Programmable Override Valet Code (allows you to set the number of times the valet button must be pressed to override the alarm)
  • Alarm Condition Cycle Duration (30 or 60 seconds)
  • Arming Delay (3 or 45 seconds)
  • Last Door Arming (on/off)
  • Automatic Rearming (on/off)
  • System disarm with Aux Channel #2 activation (on/off)
  • Parking Light Illumination Upon Disarm (on/off): allows system to illuminate parking lights for 30 seconds upon disarm
  • Doors Lock when Ignition is Turned On (on/off)
  • Unlock #1 when Ignition is Turned Off (on/off): when the driver's door priority unlock feature is used, this will unlock the driver's door only; when the driver's door priority unlock feature is not used, this will unlock all the doors when the ignition is turned off
  • Unlock #2 when Ignition is Turned Off (on/off): when the driver's door priority unlock feature is installed, allows system to unlock the rest of the vehicle's doors when the ignition is turned off
  • Open Door Bypass with Ignition Door Locking (on/off): allows the system to cancel the door lock command when the ignition is turned on if it detects an open door
  • Doors Lock with "Last Door" Arming (on/off)
  • Doors Lock with Automatic Rearming (on/off)
  • Ignition Activated Vehicle Recovery (on/off)
  • Door Activated Vehicle Recovery (on/off)
  • Remote Activated Vehicle Recovery (on/off)
  • Chirp Confirmation (on/off)
  • Steady Siren or Pulsed Horn Output (steady output for the included siren or pulsed output for use with your vehicle's horn)
  • Confirmation Chirp Volume (four volume levels)
  • 1 or 2 Button Arming/Disarming: when set for 1 button operation, 1 button arms and disarms the system. When set for 2 button operation, 1 button arms the system and another button disarms the system
  • Double Unlock pulse (on/off)
  • Total Closure Lock Output (on/off)

Antenna: The antenna is an 86" wire hardwired to the alarm module.

Omega Echo Compatible: The optional Omega Echo is a 2-way remote transceiver with an LCD screen. In addition to operating the alarm system, the Echo receives signals from the system and displays a variety of system conditions on its LCD screen. A port on the side of the alarm module is available specifically for connection to the base transmitter/receiver unit included with the Echo 2-way controller/pager system.
