What all will a decent 2-way alarm get me and about how much is a decent one?

It will "get you" a small window of opportunity to:

1) throw some shoes on
2) put one in the chamber
3) see who the **** is tryin to jack your ****

price for a decent one? roughly $200 give or take

Are you wanting 2-way alarm and remote start?

these are 2-way alarm and remote start:

Clifford Matrix
Viper 791xv
Compustar 2wss-as or 2w900fm-as

Not necessarily suggesting them in any particular order, but these are pretty popular ones. There's others, but those will give you something to look at.

Yeah, the 07 **** looks really hot.

I've used Compustar and haven't had any problems. Range is amazing.

I was hoping I could swap mine out for the 07 model's brain and remote and all, but they said it would "require an entirely new install". :crap:
I'd like to check the wiring diagrams to see how true this is. Maybe they just want me to spend $ at one of their authorized installers to have my **** redone though.

Does any of them do kind of like a chirp noise a time or two if someone gets to close to it and after that go off? And with a remote start?

Yeah, if it has a shock sensor which most of them do..

Just start shopping man.

Almost all of the 2-ways I know of are offered in both alarm and alarm+remote start forms (and some just remote start).

They'll just have slightly different model #s. For instance, Compustar 2wss-a instead of 2wss-as.

Like I said, just start shopping for em. They'll clearly say whether it has remote start or just alarm or not.

its website* and, Compustar is nice i loved mine, but at the same time i hated it. The senors were ok, but with compustar there is no room for addons, like glassbreak or tilt, or automated window sensors.

well glassbreak is probaly one of the most imprtant ones right? What all will the shock sensor detect, from what I see its the only thing that detects entry and sets the alarm off.

Does the Compustar 2WSS-AS really have a 6,000 foot range? Thats amazing if true.

Please tell em it does so I can get one : )

No. I don't know where they get those numbers. Maybe out in the desert? When you take into account RF interference, buildings, antenna placement, if the remote is attached to a keychain, etc. You'll never get that range. In fact, I think all remote start alarms are overrated like that though.

That alarm however does have amazing range though. Much farther than most alarms. More realistic range would be roughly 1000 to 1800 ft. or something like that. I've started my car from ~300-400 yards away no problem. An open area, in direct line of sight, with little interference will get you better range of course.

Also, antenna placement makes a difference. I had to reposition my antenna, because of my limo tint strip on my windshield. If you have window tint that's metallic, it can affect the range also.

I wouldnt say glassbreak is the most important. The shock sensor is arguably the most important just because its the only sensor that is the closest to a "sense/do-all" sensor, while all the others have a specific task. If you have a dual stage shock sensor and you tap (w/force) the window, the alarm SHOULD go off so I would imagine if you break it, it ALSO should go off.

Read up on what each sensor does and then think about what is really needed as some of these sensors over-lap each other and render some wasteful, IMHO. I mean why spend 50 bucks on a sensor that will only do one thing when another sensor covers its job as well as another.

What are you talking about? You can add a tilt sensor, glassbreakage sensor, mag switches, add power window mod, hook up 6 different aux, more if you have a channel expander, rps, siren, dual shock sensors, remotestart or alarm or both, man tranmission capable, you can do anything with them. HAha no room? plenty of room homie. All dei accessories can be added to the compustar bro. just dont put to many add ons. heh

6,000 ft = 1.1 miles ... So what they are saying is correct.
