Hey guys never had an alarm before but I need to get one soon. I'll describe what all I am looking for, and let me know if I overlooked anything. I was looking at compustar/dei but I really don't know which to run. I'm sure either would work. Here's what I am looking for.

1. 2 Way paging with decent range
2. Remote start
3. Door unlock
4. Ability to add glass sensor if not included
5. Starter kill would be nice
6. Can be purchased either from ebay or online

Overall I want to add and have a couple piezo sirens inside, shock sensor, door pin sensor, glass sensor, battery backup.

I would. Viper 5900 should do what I want? Does anyone know if the paging on the remote can vibrate and beep? or is it either or?

the 5900 is the 1 mile range. i am seriously considering upgrading to that one, maybe next summer. but yes you can do both beep or vibrate. vibrate kills the batterys tho and so does having the backlight on. here is a good price http://www.hookedontronics.com/show_product_details.jsp?cid=38250

I own the 5900 with a bunch of toys and it works really well. I had a compustar before that was nice but I have always prefered the viper, my 5900 gets better range and is bothered less by obstacles as well.

What addons are you using?. I will also be installing a gps tracking device, just in case. ;)
