When we moved into a new city to start a new life as a newly-wed, we realized that the city we were going to live in had higher criminality than our hometown. That’s when we decided to install a car alarm into our car. We were recommended by our mechanic to buy a remote control for our car alarm: Calsonic Kansei Corp model ASTU15. It’s made in Canada and to be honest, my hubby and I never had such experience with car alarm since this is our first one. To activate the alarm all we need to do is pressing the car lock button on the remote control. It will automatically turn on the alarm then. But the car lock button won’t work and instead it will make noises when a door isn’t totally shut and we try to lock it in this kind of situation. There is a red button on the remote control, symbolizes some kind of lamp but we are unsure of the function of this button because we never use it and the mechanic didn’t inform us of this button.
Our car alarm isn’t that sensitive like some car alarms are. Some of those sensitive car alarms would make alarm noises even when there’s a slight touch on the body of the car. This would of course annoy people especially when we park on the public places, like malls, supermarket, church, etc. Luckily ours doesn’t work that way. It would make alarm noises when window glass breaks, or door breaks, anything that indicates breaching. My hubby seems pretty satisfied with this car alarm remote control and we surely recommend it.
Note: It's compatible with our Nissan Grand Livina.
