Re: Remote door locks and remote start with cell phone question


The viper line is in my opinion their best. The others are not so much.

Clifford also is very good but I haven't seen them in a while. That doesn't meant anything though. I used to prefer Clifford to viper when installing because of certain features but they have leveled the playing field quite a bit in the last ten years.

The other is Compustar. Very high quality and feature packed. Might be hard to find them and I am not 100 percent sure they have a Bluetooth option Ive never installed one, just troubleshot them.

Where ever you go you should try and see if you can peek in the bay. This time of year the installers should be mostly doing auto starts so they will have everything out for that job. You should look for guys soldering wiring. That's a key component to quality work.

I've used mechanical splices and soldered. A good mechanical splice or tap is fine but most guys do not do them correctly so you can run into problems. Soldering also can be done wrong but chances are if someone is soldering they are taking the time to at least try an do it right.
