REMOTE CAR STARTERS INFO:

remote start system is an electronic device that allows you to start your vehicle by remote control without actually being inside the vehicle or using the key. The remote start system supplies the vehicle with power and simulates a start just as if you were inside using the key.

  • If climate controls are preset cab can be warmed or cooled prior to entering vehicle.
  • Some remote engine starters have features which allow time intervals (e.g. or temperature limit settings to prevent engine block from freezing.
  • Some remote start systems have turbo timer feature which allows the vehicle to run for a specified amount of time after exiting vehicle. In turbocharged vehicles this prevents hot oil in the engine from coking up in the lines. Hard driving can raise engine oil temperatures to dangerously high levels. Proper cool down is essential for a healthy turbo and engine.

  • Requirements
  • Electronic fuel injected motors only (most cars)
  • May require bypass module (always ask what vehicle they have and check for module requirements)
  • not recommended for manual transmissions
  • A keyless entry system is an electronic device that allows you to remotely lock, unlock, and open the trunk of a vehicle that is equipped with power door lock motors (actuators) and power truck motor (solenoid).

    keyless entry alarms Requirements
  • Vehicle must have power door lock motors.
  • Vehicle must have power trunk motor to open trunk.
  • 2way/vehichle paging system is a system which sends vehicle status information to the 2way pager remote. Vehicle status information such as:
    Alarm disarmed, Alarm armed, Door open, Trunk open, Alarm triggered, Warn aways, Remote started, Hood open, Dome light on.

    Add-ons Motion Sensor (dei-500t)- Detects vertical motion from jacking or towing attempts. Water resistant design utilizes offset silver-plated contacts for a wide range of adjustment. Recommend as a cheap alternative to the tilt sensor.

    Audio sensor (glass break sensor)- Provides pre-entry protection by detecting tampering and breaking of vehicle’s glass. Reliable CMOS design with remote microphone analyzes frequency, intensity and timing of intrusion sounds to eliminate false alarms.

    Knock sensor- this sensor is designed for AUTOPAGE ALARMS ONLY. It will allow someone to alert you by tapping on the exact spot where the sensor is located to alert the person who has the paging remote. It will show on the remote but will not trigger the alarm.

    Pin switch- this switch is designed to trigger an alarm when the circuit is grounded (pin depressed). Good for car doors, hoods, trunks, tool boxes, and gas tank doors.

    Tilt sensor (digital tilt sensor)- this sensor is designed to trigger an alarm when the vehicle is lifted by a jack or tow truck when the alarm is armed. Recommend to someone is worried about there rims. Sensor will remember the angle of the vehicle before it is armed and will only trigger if angle is changed. Air resonance sensor (ultrasonic sensor)- The sensor detects movement inside the vehicle by sensing air disturbance. The sensor will trigger the alarm if a thief tries to gain access to the interior of your vehicle. This sensor will only work properly if all entrackes are closed (doors, windows, sunroof, etc).

    Proximity sensor (field disturbance sensor)- The most effective vehicle-intrusion sensor. This dual zone radar sensor detects moving high-density objects using RF field-disturbance technology. Ideal for convertibles or any application where zone-intrusion protection is desired.

    Closed Loop Sensor (dei-502t)- Perfect for monitoring auxiliary lights, car covers, trailers or anything that you might want to trigger the alarm when you disconnect it. Extremely low current consumption, and compact transistorized design provides both positive and negative output triggers when input trigger is disconnected.

    Magnetic switch- this sensor is designed to trigger an alarm when the circuit it is connected to is “broken” or opened. Good for tool boxes, tunnel covers, and sliding windows on trucks.

    Shock sensor- this sensor is designed to trigger an alarm on light or heavy impacts and vibrations (standard sensor included with most alarms)

    Dual zone shock sensor (stinger double guard shock sensor)- The most effective protection against shock/impact. Uses electromagnetic technology to eliminate mechanical parts . Two outputs are provided. The first offers a Warn Away® response on light impact and the second instantly triggers the alarm on hard impact.

    Dual Zone- is a feature of proximity and shock sensors only. Zone 1 ( light impact on shock sensor and short motions(adjustable) on proximity sensor) will trigger warn away chirp to warn intruder that car has an alarm without setting off the full alarm. Zone 2 (heavy impact on shock sensor and extended motions(adjustable) on proximity sensor) will trigger the alarm to “go off”.

    Actuator- Standard door lock motors for adding power door locks to most vehicles (requires relays unless purchasing 4 door kit which already has relays, see tech for application)

    Relay- an electronic switch which can be used for multiple applications (ie. Reverse polarity, adding door lock actuator, trunk release solenoids, adding starter kill to a vehicle, and remote turn-on when adding multiple amplifiers to a system)

    Pulse timer relay- Adjustable (1 to 90 seconds) timer-controlled 30A relay. Activates with a (+) or (-) trigger input. For temporary circuit connect/disconnect applications. For example if your alarms do not have a built in turbo timer you can use this relay to create one. Can be used for remote start systems on diesel engines which do not have a wait to start wire.

    Trunk release solenoid- Interfaces with existing latch or release cable to provide power trunk/hatch release by switch or remote control. Comes with mounting bracket, hardware and momentary switch. Requires relay.

    Diodes- allows current (+/-) to travel in one direction. Generally used for door lock wires on certain cars.

    GPS Tracking system- tracking system for alarms. Some companies offer 24 hour monitoring, some need to have you call if the vehicle is stolen, some allow access the vehicle’s location from the internet.

    Back-up battery- Sealed 0.7 amp/hour lead/acid battery powers and triggers the alarm when vehicle’s battery is disconnected. A must for any high-security installation.

    Mini Piezzo siren (dei-513t)- Special-application siren often used as a pain generator inside the vehicle.

    Window Modules (recommend 12 gauge wire to be used for installion)

    2 window up and down (au93)- window automation system controls the operation of two windows in both directions. Can automatically roll up two power windows when a security system is armed, and will provide “one touch” up and down operation for both factory power window switches. Accepts (-) switch inputs to make interfacing with European style, rest at ignition window systems simple; and the adjustable sensitivity makes it compatible with most factory power windows systems. Windows can also be vented or rolled down completely by remote control, using an auxiliary validity channel of a security system.

    2 windows up/down (au934)- Allows operation of two windows in one direction or one motor in two directions. Interfaces with most modular alarms. Great for sunroofs or rear windows

    Power window kit- this is an aftermarket kit for cars with manual windows only and turns a pair of windows into power windows.
