    Recommend me an alarm

    I just bought a new (used) truck and need to get an alarm for it. What's a good 2 way alarm that will give feedback to the remote to tell you when the alarm is triggered?

    Last alarm I had was a viper and it was a POS so I don't want to go with them. I don't need many bells and whistles.

    While I'm personally partial to Viper and haven't had any bad experiences with them, you could also take a peek at Python as well.

    Well I just pulled the viper out of my car I am selling. It is only a 1 way since the 2 way remote broke, I think I'm just going to use it in my truck and just add a ton of piezos to make it loud as hell.

    Re: Recommend me an alarm

    Go with a Viper, I've been an installer professionally for a decade and have used Viper, Compustar, other DEI products and seen the quality of other brands (the Omegas, etc.). I personally have a Viper alarm/remote start in two of my vehicles and couldnt be happier. What are the issues you are experiencing? Most, if not all, issues involving alarms are a result of the installation not the product.

    the problem i have with my viper was the sensitivity is a POS, at 1/8 position and below even if your car was slammed with a hit and run, it wouldnt even go off, and anything above 1/8 the wind will set it off. Fk vipers

    LOL, was it plugged in correctly (the harness). If it's oriented in one direction there's no warn away so it has to be slammed hard to go off. The other orientation will have warn away. One end has a looped wire (green for progressive trigger - i.e., the warn away 2 stage function) where the other is just bare which deletes the 2 step warn away. Any and all viper brains that I've ever used with an external shock sensor I have never had an issue with; the internal ones still worked but weren't the greatest, required a little more tweaking.

    Also is the shock sensor mounted to a body panel, not a harness; vibrations don't travel that well up into harnesses.

    Just an FYI if you complain about shock sensors being poor on a Viper, good luck with the other brands. :-\ lmao
