An advanced car alarm system does much more than simply flash the vehicle's lights and honk the horn when it detects a break-in. The most effective vehicle alarm systems provide you with a remote transmitter, giving you long-range remote control and ability to monitor the car. With multiple features, a remote alarm system puts you in complete control of the vehicle from a distance of up to a mile away. This allows you to deter car thieves, check the interior conditions and even kill the starter remotely should that be necessary.
