Remote Starter/Alarm Opinions...
Neighbourhood is going down the drain lately. Caught some kids dumping out old motor oil from my truck all over the parking lot the other day. Makes me think its time to invest in a security system....
I always wanted a remote starter for these Candian winters, so what a good time to get both!
To those who have a starter/alarm combo..I need your opinions...
I see some systems are 1-way and others are 2-way (ie: the little key-fob thing lets you know if your alarm goes off, and to confirm your truck is actually started). I can get a 1-way combo for $400 installed (lifetime warrenty and all that jazz), which seems to be a good price around here. The 2-way combo would start at about $650. Now, is the 2-way worth the extra price? How often will I be able to pick up a notification my alarm went off if say I am 5 city blocks away? The other side of a mall?
I don't want to spend the extra money if it will only alert me if I am in sight of the truck.
What is the opinions of you all?
