If you’re a Compustar fan you’re likely no stranger to 2-way controls. However, if you don’t have security alerts set up, then you’re missing out on some of the best 2-way features Compustar has to offer. 2-way alerts allow your remote to send commands to your vehicle (e.g. lock or remote start) and confirm back when that command is successfully executed. 

Critical to car security, 2-way alerts instantly notify you whenever your car alarm is triggered – helping to prevent theft from the moment a break-in occurs. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, over 700,000 motor vehicles are stolen each year. Our goal is to reduce this number with our car alarms and security systems with 2-way alarm alerts.

What are 2-Way Alarm Alerts?

2-way alarm alerts allow your security system to send alerts straight to your remote when your car alarm is triggered. 2-way alarm alerts can be configured to page you the moment your vehicle senses shock, impact, glass-break, and tilt. The sooner you recognize that your car is harmed or in danger, the sooner you can take action!


Paging with 2-Way Alerts

Compustar’s 2-way feature confirms with a series of beeps and on-screen animations when a command is successfully sent from your remote to your vehicle. Visual cues displayed on our LCD remotes let you know exactly when your engine has been remote started or shut down. 

Another benefit of 2-way remotes is the ability to confirm when your vehicle is armed and locked. This feature takes the guesswork out of traditional key fobs which require you to be near your vehicle to see or hear when your car is successfully locked. You can leave the parking lot with confidence knowing that your car is secure with 2-way alerts!

Car Alarm Security Features

Compustar security systems include a wide variety of features that are perfect for 2-way remotes. These include:

Alarm alerts – In the event that your car alarm is triggered, you’ll instantly receive security alerts directly to your 2-way remote.

Impact detection – The dual-stage shock sensor included in Compustar security systems detect impact and alert you when someone or something hits your vehicle. Compustar shock sensors can also distinguish the intensity of impact – from a light tap to a potential hit-and-run.

Tilt sensor – Vehicles equipped with the DAS-II security sensor detect tilt in your vehicle. Your alarm siren will sound, should the sensor detect tilt due to towing, theft, or impact. 

Glass-break sensor – The DAS-II glass-break sensor will send an alert to your 2-way remote as soon as the built-in microphones detect glass-break. This feature is crucial to detecting smash-and-grab situations and carjacking.

Starter-kill – Eliminate car theft by preventing thieves from starting your engine while your Compustar security system is armed.

GPS Tracking – Pair your alarm system with DroneMobile to get GPS Tracking on your smartphone for extra added security and comfort.
