Anyone installed an universal keyless entry

I've looked on the internet and there's plenty of the universal keyless entry systems you can buy but I'm wondering if they actually work and if they are secure. i don't want anyone with the same system to be able to unlock my truck.

I installed a kit I got on ebay in my first truck, it held up pretty well except for the remotes. If I had to do it all over again I'd pay more for a better kit, so I suggest getting something nice not a cheapo.

As far as I know each remote needs to be programmed to the module, so someone shouldn't have the ability to unlock yours with theirs.

I bought one a few years ago, was not impressed at all. This was a cheap kit, and the remote would not unlock the doors unless you were right up at the car (or in it).

Ya, I installed a universal one last year on my truck. It came with the door actuators. I really like mine but if you leave the truck sit more than 3 days with power to the system it will drain the battery dead. I know the wiring is all correct but it is something with the system. Just put a on/off switch so I can turn the power off to the unit.
