Not bad for a remote start alarm with install, but do you need remote start?

At first i was just gonna get the central locking , just a remote to lock and unlock doors.

 

But at same price these guys are providing an alarm with features which i dont even know in detail, which is including installation.

Yeah IMO not worth remote central locking alone, an alarm and immobilizer is a good idea.  Seems not a bad deal.  Who's it with?

You'd probably be no better off with or without an alarm of that quality. It'll probably be easily bypassed and your car easily stolen.

 

I'd just look for a cheap central locking kit than waste money on a pointless alarm for that function

 

If you're Wellington based Julian can install central locking https://vehiclesecurity.co.nz/

Given the deal is for Auckland, probably not in Wellington.

 

Is a central locking remote install likely to come in under $130??

can't easily put a remote start in a car with manual transmission (it is do-able, but lots of extra work to make it usable)

The important thing with an alarm is that it is first and foremost a deterrent only. One thing the crims don't like is attention.  If is has an immobilizer then that's an added level of some security that might make the ferals go elsewhere.  That's a damn good deal IMO.

 No brand alarms like you're looking at are more issues than they are worth. Especially when they can leave you stranded. 

 

 

 

Have a look at the reviews on here: http://vehiclesecurity.co.nz/blog/product-review-guide-lines the guy knows his stuff. I'd expect to be paying more around the $500 mark for a basic install.

Get something like this mainly for central locking. Depending on what car you have an aftermarket alarm can be a nightmare to add. And they will probably charge you extra if some of the central locking motors are broken. Or if your car doesn't currently have central locking installed.

As this alarm is intended to interface with cars that have working central locking from a lock / unlock button.

If the car is reasonably modern there may not be the traditional lock/unlock control, most modern cars have a distributed variation of CAN-bus, the more modern alarm systems simply plug in to the bus system and are programmed for the type of car they are in.

Considering it is obviously an old Nissan that doesn't even seem to have central locking I would highly doubt it can be integrated via CAN bus. :)

How did you figure out that it is "an old Nissan"?
