Glossary of Terms
The following terms are listed to assist you in defining the technologies your selected Viper system includes. Please note, not all Viper systems feature all of the following technologies, these descriptions are provided as a glossary of various Viper technologies for reference only.
2-Way remotes let you stay in touch with your vehicle, confirming your commands (such as remote start, or arming your security system) either with an LCD screen on the remote, or using LED lights. Some 2-Way remotes also act as a security pager, letting you know your siren has been triggered, even if you are too far away to hear it.
The number and type of remotes that come with the system.
Viper systems use Radio Frequency (RF) technologies to communicate with your vehicle, and these technologies each have a typical operating range. Range varies by the technology used, but also because of environmental factors such as interference from other RF sources. Currently Viper systems with the longest range use Spread Spectrum Technology (SST) with range up to 1.5km.
Remote Start allows you to start your engine by remote control, allowing your vehicle’s climate control system to warm up or cool down the cabin before you get in. Range is important with remote start (your vehicle might be parked down the street, or at the far end of a parking lot) and 2-Way remote start systems are preferred (because they confirm that your vehicle has started.)
Unlock your vehicle’s doors with the push of a button on your keychain remote.
Viper systems with Boot Pop can open your power boot with the push of a button.
A Viper SmartStart module can be added to this system to make your vehicle SmartStart ready.
Clone-safe, anti-Code Grabbing technology comes standard on every Viper system.
A great safety feature: illuminates your vehicle’s dome light for 30 seconds when you disarm your security system or unlock the doors of your remote start system.
STINGER DOUBLEGUARD SHOCK SENSOR
Each Viper security system comes standard with the dual stage Stinger DoubleGuard shock sensor, which detects blows or impacts to the vehicle and can discriminate light impacts from heavy ones.
Failsafe Starter Kill Keep your car where you parked it with the Failsafe Starter Kill, an immobilizer designed to prevent hot-wiring.
ANTI-CARJACKING ALSO REFERRED TO AS VRS
VRS is a user-operated anti-carjacking system. Once activated, if your vehicle is carjacked, 30 seconds later the siren will start screaming for help and the lights will flash. When the carjacker pulls over and turns off the ignition, the starter kill will activate, which should prompt the carjacker to then abandon your vehicle for eventual recovery.
# OF AUXILIARY CHANNELS
Auxiliary channels are electrical outputs controlled by your keychain remote, which your installer can interface with systems in your car to allow you to operate them by remote control.
