Important information
Congratulations on the purchase of your state-of-the-art vehicle se­
cu­ri­ty system. This system has been designed to provide years
of trouble-free op­er­a­tion. Due to the complexity of this system, it
must be installed by an authorized dealer only. Installation of this
product by anyone other than an authorized dealer voids the warranty. All dealers are provided with preprinted dealer cer­tif­i­cates
to verify that they are au­tho­rized.
This owner’s guide should help you to get the most out of your
system. Please take the time to read it prior to using the system.
➢ System maintenance
The system requires no specific maintenance. Your remote control
is pow­ered by 2 small, lightweight CR2016 batteries. When the
batteries weakens, operating range will be reduced and the LED
on the remote will dim.

Transmitter functions
The system uses a computer-based learn routine to learn the trans­
mit­ter buttons. This makes it possible to assign any transmitter button
to any system function. The transmitter initially comes programmed
with Standard Configuration, but may also be customized by an
authorized dealer. The buttons in all of the instructions in this manual correspond to a Standard Configuration transmitter.

Using your system
The buttons used in the instructions in this manual correspond to
the standard con­fig­ur­a­tion. Remember, this is not the only way
your trans­mit­ter may be set up. It can be custom configured to
meet your needs.
➢ Active arming
You can activate, or arm, the system by pressing
on your
transmitter for one second. When the system arms, you will hear
a short siren sound, or chirp, and the parking lights will flash
once. If the vehicle’s power door locks have been connected to
the system, the doors will lock.
While the system is armed, the status LED will flash approximately
once per second, indicating that the system is actively protecting
your vehicle. If you hear a second chirp after arming, and see the
status LED flashing in groups, refer to the Diagnostics section of this
guide. This extra chirp is called Bypass No­ti­fi­ca­tion.
�������
➢ Passive arming
The system also can be programmed to arm itself automatically
(called passive arming). If the system is programmed for passive
arming, it will automatically arm 30 seconds after the ignition is
turned off and the system “sees” you leave the vehicle by opening and closing a door. Whenever the system is in its 30-second
passive-arming countdown, the status LED will flash twice as fast
as it does when the system is armed. The siren will chirp one time
20 seconds after the last door has been closed. The system is
not actually armed at that point. The system arms and the doors
lock (if connected and programmed for passive locking) at the 30
second mark, but the siren will not chirp. The early chirp provides
you with a 10-second warning prior to arming.
8
© 2008 Directed Electronics- All rights reserved.
If any protected entry point (such as a door or a switch-protected
trunk or hood) is open, the system will not passively arm (unless
forced passive arming is programmed on). See Pro­gram­ming Options section of this guide. Additionally, each time a protected
entry is triggered during the arming countdown, the 30-second
countdown starts over.
When armed, your vehicle is protected as follows:
Light impacts will trigger the Warn Away® signal. When trig­
gered, the siren will chirp and the parking lights will flash for a
few seconds.
Heavy impacts will trigger the system. The triggered sequence is
between 1-180 seconds of constant siren and flashing parking
lights.
If a door is opened, the system will immediately start chirping the
siren and flashing the parking lights. Three seconds later, the siren
output changes to a con­tin­u­ous blast. This pro­gres­sive re­sponse
gives you time to dis­arm the sys­tem with your transmitter if you
inadvertently open the door while the sys­tem is armed, while still
providing an instant response (even if the door is im­me­di­ate­ly
closed).
Turning on the ignition key will trip the same two-stage response
as opening a door.
The optional starter kill prevents the vehicle’s starter from crank­
ing.

➢ Multi-level security arming
The Multi-Level Security Arming feature is available with the fourbutton transmitter only.
Multi-Level Security Arming allows you to select which of the security system’s inputs or sensors are to be active and which are to
be bypassed, when arming the system. (See the Table of Zones
section of this guide.)
Pressing
again within five seconds of arming the security
system will activate the Multi-Level Security Arming feature.
Each time
is pressed again, a different security level is selected. The different security levels can be selected as follows:
�������
•
Press

Press
running or while the ignition is on. The siren chirps once, and then
once more indicating that the ig­ni­tion is on. The security system
does not respond to any input except the door triggers and the
Failsafe® Starter Kill (if installed) will not activate.
The security system disarms au­to­mat­i­cal­ly when the ignition is
turned off. The siren chirps twice and the LED stops flashing.
�������
Note: If programmed for the optional Vehicle Recovery System
(VRS®) feature, arming with the transmitter arms the VRS® feature.
(See VRS® section of this guide.)
© 2008 Directed Electronics - All rights reserved.
11
➢ Disarming
To disarm the system, press
. You will hear two chirps, and the
parking lights will flash twice. If the power locks are connected to
the system, the doors will unlock. If the siren chirps either four or
five times when disarming, refer to the Diagnostics section of this
guide. This is called Tamper Alert.
�������
➢ High security disarm
This security system offers High Security Disarm. High Security
Disarm is a feature that makes it possible to silence and reset the
system while it is triggering, without disarming the system.
If the system is triggered and the siren has been sounding for
longer than six seconds, pressing
on the remote transmitter will
stop the trigger and return the unit to the armed state. The system
will not disarm, but rather reset. This prevents you from disabling
the system should you wish to disarm it without visually checking
the vehicle.
�������
Pressing
while the alarm is triggering will disarm the system.
�������
12
© 2008 Directed Electronics- All rights reserved.
➢ Disarming without a transmitter
This feature allows you to disarm the security sys­tem without the
remote trans­mit­ter should it be lost, dam­aged, or disabled. In order
to dis­arm the system with­out a remote transmitter, you must have the
ve­hi­cle’s ig­ni­tion key and know where the Valet switch is located.
Be sure to check with the installer for the location and the number of
presses of the Valet switch required to disarm the system.
To disarm the security system,
turn the ignition to the ON position. Press the Valet switch
the preset number of times
(one to five times) within 15
seconds.
After 5 seconds, the sys­tem will now disarm. If the system does
not disarm, you may have waited too long; turn the ignition off
and on and try again.
Location of Valet switch_________________________________
Number of Presses______________________________________
Important! The unit can be programmed to respond to one to five
presses of the Valet switch for the disarm function. Be sure to check
with the installer for the desired programming.

13
➢ Silent mode
To temporarily turn off the arm or disarm chirps, use Silent
Mode™.
Press
for less than one second before arming or disarming,
and the confirmation chirp(s) will be eliminated for that one op­er­
a­tion only. If you want the arm/disarm chirps turned off permanently, your dealer can do this for you.
�������
The Warn Away® response to lighter impacts is bypassed if the
system is armed using Silent Mode. This ensures that no chirps
will be emitted by the siren in an area you want chirp-free. The
system is still fully capable of triggering, only the Warn Away®
response is bypassed.
➢ Panic mode
If you are threatened in or near your vehicle, you can attract attention by triggering the system with your transmitter. Just press
for two seconds, and you will enter Panic Mode. The siren
will sound and the parking lights will flash for the programmed
siren duration. To stop Panic Mode at any time, press
on the
remote transmitter again.
➢ Valet mode
You can prevent your security system from automatically arming
and trig­ger­ing by using Valet Mode. This is very useful when
washing the ve­hi­cle or having it serviced. In Valet Mode, the
security system will not arm, even with the remote trans­mit­ter, but
all convenience functions (door locks, trunk re­lease, etc.) will continue to work nor­mal­ly.
14

To enter or exit Valet Mode:
1.
Turn the ignition on.
2.
Turn the ignition off.
3.
Press and release
the Valet switch within 10
seconds.
The status LED lights solidly if you are en­ter­ing Valet Mode, and
goes out if you are exiting Valet Mode.
To enter or exit Valet Mode using the transmitter:
1.
Open any vehicle door.
2.

again.
�������
�������
The status LED will light solidly if you are entering Valet Mode, and
it will go out if you are exiting Valet Mode.
�������
➢ Nuisance Prevention Circuitry®
Your system has Directed’s Nuisance Prevention® Circuitry (NPC®).
It prevents annoying repetitive trigger sequences due to faulty
door pin switch­es or en­vi­ron­men­tal con­di­tions such as thunder,
jack­ham­mers, airport noise, etc.
Example
If the alarm triggers three times within a 60-minute period and each
time the same sensor or switch triggers the alarm, NPC will interpret
those triggers as false alarms. After the third trigger, NPC ignores,
or by­pass­es, that sensor or switch (along with any other sensors or
switches sharing the same zone) for 60 minutes.
© 2008 Directed Electronics - All rights reserved.
15
If the bypassed sensor tries to trigger the system while it is being
bypassed, the 60-minute bypass period will start over. This ensures that a sensor that continually triggers will remain bypassed.
Doors are covered by NPC differently; if the alarm is triggered
by an open door for three full cycles, the doors will be bypassed
until the trigger ceases.
Arming and disarming the system does not reset this function!. The
only ways to reset a bypassed zone are for it to not trigger for 60
minutes, or to turn on the ignition. If testing your system, it is important to remember that the NPC programming can cause zones to
be bypassed and appear to stop working. If five chirps are heard
when disarming, NPC has been engaged. If you wish to clear the
NPC memory, turn the ignition key on.
NPC is programmable. See Programming Options section of this
guide.

Diagnostics
The microprocessor at the heart of your security system is constantly mon­it­or­ing all of the switches and sensors that are connected
to it. It detects any faulty switches and sensors and prevents them
from disabling the entire system. The mi­cro­pro­ces­sor will also record and report any triggers that occurred during your absence.
Refer to the System Status Chirps and Table of Zones charts for
diagnostic information.
➢ Arming diagnostics
If the system is armed while an input is active (door open, sensor
triggering, etc.) the unit will chirp once when arming and then
one more time a few seconds later. This is called Bypass Notification.
Note: Bypass Notification will not occur when using Silent
Mode™ or if chirps have been programmed OFF.
The security system will ignore the input that was active when the
system was armed, until the input goes away. Three seconds later
the system will monitor that input normally. For example, if your
vehicle has interior light exit delay, and you arm the system before the interior light goes out, you may hear Bypass Notification
chirps. Once the light shuts off, however, the doors are mon­i­tored
normally.
© 2008 Directed Electronics - All rights reserved.
17
➢ Disarming diagnostics
Extra disarm chirps are the Tamper Alert. If four chirps are heard
when disarming, the system was triggered in your absence. If
five chirps are heard, a zone was triggered so many times that
Nui­sance Prevention® Circuitry has bypassed that zone. In either
case, the status LED will indicate which zone was involved. (See
Table of Zones section of this guide.) The system will retain this
information in its memory, and continue to chirp four or five times
each time it is disarmed, until the next time the ignition key is
turned on.
➢ System status chirps
The siren will chirp when arming/disarming the system. The pattern of chirps will audibly report the system’s status as described
below.

to identify that input. The standard input assignments are listed
below, along with spaces to write in any optional sensors or
switches you have had installed.

➢ Interpreting zone diagnostics
Warn Away responses are not reported by arming or disarming
diagnostics. If you receive a Bypass notification when arming
or a Tamper Alert notification when disarming, look at the LED.
Active or triggered zones will be indicated by a pattern of blinks
by the LED.
Example: If zone 3 was active or triggered, the LED will blink
three times with a two-second pause. Then it will blink three times
again, and repeat until the ignition is turned on.
Your system stores the last two triggered zones in memory. If your
system has been triggered but the LED has been reset by turning
on the ignition, your dealer can still recall the last two zones that
were triggered. Contact your dealer for details

19
Code hopping
The receiver and transmitters each use mathematical formulas
called al­go­rithms to change their codes each time the transmitter is used. This technology has been developed to increase the
security of the unit. The control unit knows what the next codes
should be. This helps to keep the transmitter “in sync” with the
control unit even if you use the remote control out of range of the
vehicle. However, if the transmitter has been pressed many times
out of range of the vehicle, or if the battery has been removed,
it may get out of sync with the control unit and fail to operate the
system.
To re-sync the remote control press
of the transmitter several
times within range of the vehicle. The alarm will au­to­mat­i­cal­ly resync and respond to the trans­mit­ters nor­mal­ly.
�������
20

High frequency
Your system transmits and receives at 434 MHz, using a superhetrodyne XR+ receiver. This provides a cleaner spec­trum with
less interference and a more stable signal. Enjoy a phe­nom­e­nal
increase in range – even in areas with high radio in­ter­fer­ence.
Owner Recognition
Owner Recognition is a feature avail­able exclusively from Directed.
Using the Directed Bitwriter, a hand-held programming tool, your
dealer can program many of the system settings. The programmer
makes it possible to program different settings for each trans­mit­ter
that is used with the system. Then, when­ev­er a specific transmitter is
used, the system will recall the settings assigned to that transmitter.
Owner Rec­og­ni­tion lets up to four users of the system have different
settings that meet their specific needs. It is almost like having four
separate alarms in your vehicle, one for each user.
Note: Owner Recognition cannot be programmed without a
Directed Bitwriter and the necessary soft­ware. Check with your
dealer for more information.
© 2008 Directed Electronics - All rights reserved.
21
Rapid resume logic
This Directed system will store its current state to non-volatile memory. If power is lost and then reconnected, the system will recall
the stored state from memory. This means if the unit is in Valet
Mode and the battery is dis­con­nect­ed for any reason, such as
servicing the car, when the battery is re­con­nect­ed the unit will still
be in Valet Mode. This applies to all states of the system including
arm, disarm, VRS®, and Valet Mode.
Power saver mode
Your system will automatically enter Power Saver Mode while
armed or in Valet Mode, after a period of time in which no operation has been performed. This lowers the current draw to the
vehicle’s battery. Power Saver Mode takes over under the following conditions:
• Power Saver when the system is armed: After the system has
been armed for 24 hours, the LED will flash at half its normal
rate, decreasing the system’s current draw.
•
Power Saver in Valet Mode: When the system enters Valet
Mode the LED illuminates steadily. If the vehicle is not used
(ignition is not turned on) for a period of one hour while the
system is in Valet Mode, the LED will shut off. If the system
remains in Valet Mode, the LED will come back on the next
time the ignition is turned on and then back off.

Programming options
Programming options control what your system does during normal op­er­at­ion, and require few or no additional parts. However,
some may require additional in­stal­la­tion labor.
The following is a list of the program settings, with the factory
settings in Bold:
•
•
•
•
Active arming (only with the transmitter) or passive arming
(au­to­mat­ic arming 30-seconds after the last door has been
closed).
Arming/disarming confirmation siren chirps on or off.
The ignition controlled door lock feature on or off: With this
feature on, the doors will lock three seconds after the ignition is turned on, and unlock when the ignition is turned off.
The system will not lock the doors when the ignition is turned
on with any door open. If your installer is programming the
security system with the Directed Bitwriter, ignition lock and
unlock are independent features and can be programmed
separately.
Passive door locking (with passive arming) or active door
locking (only when arming with the transmitter). Passive locking allows the vehicle’s doors to lock when the security system
passively arms (after the 30 second countdown). This feature
only works if passive arming has been programmed.
Note: When programmed for passive arming and active lock, if
the system is disarmed without a door being opened, the system
will relock the doors when it passively rearms.
© 2008 Directed Electronics - All rights reserved.
23
•
•
Panic mode en­abled/dis­abled with the ig­ni­tion on: Some
states have laws against siren ca­pa­bil­i­ty in a mov­ing vehicle.
Forced passive arming on or off: If your system is programmed
for passive arming and the forced pas­sive arming feature has
been pro­grammed on, the system will passively arm af­ter
one hour, even if a protected entry has been left open. This
feature is use­ful if a door has been left ajar when leaving the
vehicle. Forced pas­sive arming ensures that the security sys­
tem will be armed in every situation.
Note: When the system passively arms after one hour, the
entry point that has been left open, and anything connected
to the same zone, is bypassed and cannot trigger the system. However, the re­main­ing inputs to the system are fully
operational.
•
Automatic Engine Dis­able (AED) on or off: The pur­pose of
this fea­ture is to protect the vehicle from being stolen at all
times, re­gard­less of whether or not the alarm is armed. If AED
is programmed on, the starter of the vehicle will be dis­abled
30 sec­onds after the ignition is turned off. Once the key is
turned off, the LED will flash slowly (one-half its normal armed
rate) to indicate the AED arming cycle. Thirty seconds later,
the starter of the vehicle will be dis­abled. To start the car, it
will be necessary to disarm the system with the transmitter.
It is also possible to disarm the AED feature by turn­ing the
ignition key to the RUN position and pressing the Valet switch
the programmed number of times. AED is disabled when the
system is in Valet Mode.
Note: This feature will only function if the Failsafe® Starter
Kill relay has been installed.
24

•
Comfort closure: To close the vehicles windows after remote
locking. Can only be used on cars with the capability of
closing windows (and on some cars the sunroof) with the key
cylinder in the door.
•
Full trigger response 30 or 60 seconds: This determines how
long the full triggered sequence lasts. Some states have laws
regulating how long a security system can sound before it is
considered a nuisance. If your installer is programming the
security system with the Directed Bitwriter, the full triggered
response can be programmed for any duration ranging from
1 to 180 seconds.
•
Nuisance Prevention Circuitry® on or off: Please refer to the
NPC section of this manual for a complete explanation of
how NPC operates. If NPC is pro­grammed off, the se­cu­ri­ty
sys­tem will respond to inputs from any sensor in­def­i­nite­ly.
Note: Because many states have laws regulating security
systems, pro­gram­ming NPC off may cause your sys­tem to
violate state laws.
•
Progressive door trigger on or off: When the system is armed
and a door is opened, the system responds with ten chirps
prior to be­gin­ning the full triggered sequence. If an instant
trigger is desired, the progressive door trigger can be pro­
grammed off.
•
Valet pulse count: The number of presses of the Valet switch
required to disarm the security system, AED, or the VRS®
system can be programmed from one to five presses. The
default setting is one press.
© 2008 Directed Electronics - All rights reserved.
25
•
Siren tones and chirp volume: The output of the Revenger®
Soft Chirp® siren consists of six different tones in sequence.
Any of these tones can be elim­i­nat­ed by your dealer, re­sult­
ing in a unique, easily iden­ti­fi­able siren sound. The siren
chirps can be either full volume or six decibels quieter than
the full alarm blast.
➢ Additional options
The system has many options that may require extra parts and
labor. Some of the possibilities are listed here.
•
Progressive unlocking: In most cars with electric power door
locks, the system can be configured so that when the system is
disarmed, only the driver’s door unlocks. A second press of the
button unlocks the other doors. (This feature is available
with the four-button transmitter only.)
�������
•
Vehicle Recovery System (VRS®): VRS® is an anti-carjacking
device designed to help in the safe recovery of your vehicle
in case of a carjacking. Please refer to the Vehicle Recovery
System section of this guide for a complete ex­pla­na­tion of
how the Vehicle Recovery System operates.
26
© 2008 Directed Electronics- All rights reserved.
Vehicle Recovery System (VRS)
The optional VRS® feature is designed to en­sure that any un­au­
tho­rized user of your vehicle (even if using your keys and remote
control) will not be able to per­ma­nent­ly separate you from your
vehicle.
The VRS cannot prevent a carjacking attempt; how­ev­er, it does
en­sure that if your vehicle is taken by an un­au­tho­rized user, it will
be disabled (after several pro­gres­sive warn­ings) as safely as possible. Should a carjacking occur, the VRS allows you to concern
yourself with your personal safety without worrying about your
property.
Directed has en­gi­neered this vehicle security system, the Failsafe®
Starter Kill, and the VRS feature to pro­vide the best com­bi­na­tion
of personal safe­ty and property pro­tec­tion available. When properly installed, the system can never in­ad­vert­ent­ly stop your vehicle
in traffic or on railroad tracks while the vehicle is in operation. It
is unlike other systems that shut down your engine while it is running. This sys­tem is de­signed to per­form starter in­ter­rupt, or starter
kill. The Failsafe Starter Kill cannot shut down an already-running
en­gine – it can only pre­vent an engine from starting in the first
place.
Important! Any in­stal­la­tion that allows this product to
shut down a vehicle’s engine when it is running is con­
trary to the product’s design and in­tend­ed usage, and
Directed hereby ex­press­ly dis­claims any liability re­sult­
ing there from..

➢ Arming the VRS
To arm the VRS®, turn the ignition to the ON position and press the
arm button on the remote transmitter for one second. The parking
lights will flash and the siren will chirp once. This can be done
before driving or while driving the vehicle. Once the system is
armed, it will initiate its triggered se­quence (see below) if any
door is opened and closed. If you are forced from the vehicle, the
system will trigger as the door is opened and closed. This is how
the system works to combat intersection carjacking. To protect
against parking lot carjacking, arm the VRS before leaving the
ve­hi­cle. The system will now trigger au­to­mat­i­cal­ly the next time
you or anyone drives the vehicle. This helps to protect the vehicle
if someone takes your keys and remote transmitter by force in a
parking lot.
Note: If the VRS system is armed while operating the vehicle and not
disarmed prior to leaving the vehicle, it is still armed and will trigger
the next time the vehicle is driven.

➢ Triggered sequence
Fif­teen seconds after the last door has closed, the sys­tem’s status
LED will begin flashing. This delay is intended to allow you time to
distance your­self from your ve­hi­cle in the event of a carjacking.
Forty-five seconds later, the siren begins chirping and the park­ing
lights begin flashing. This time could be used to notify au­thor­it­ies
that your vehicle has been hi­jacked, and tell them what the VRS
will do next.
Fif­teen seconds after the siren chirps be­gin, the siren’s output will
change to a con­tin­uo
­ us blast.
From this point on, when the ignition key is turned off, the VRS® will
immediately turn on the starter kill. This will prevent the vehicle from
being re­start­ed, thus im­mo­bi­liz­ing it at that spot.
Three minutes after the constant siren out­put be­gins, the flash­ing
parking lights and the siren will stop. The starter kill will remain
active until the system is dis­armed. If the door is opened or the ig­
ni­tion is turned off and on in an attempt to restart the car, the siren
and light flash­ing will begin again.

➢ Disarming the VRS
Take the time to familiarize yourself with the VRS® trig­ger­ing se­
quence and the disarm pro­ce­dure. It is important to recognize
and identify the VRS trigger sequence and know how to disarm it
in case of ac­ci­den­tal activation.
Once the VRS is armed, it does not disarm au­to­mat­i­cal­ly. You must
disarm it the next time you operate the vehicle. You must dis­arm it
with one of the fol­low­ing pro­ce­dures:
If the system has not entered the triggered sequence (siren has not
started chirping):
1.
Turn the ignition on.
2.
Press
on the transmitter for one second. The
lights will flash and the siren will chirp twice.
If the system has entered the triggered sequence
(siren has begun chirping), pressing the disarm button of the trans­mit­ter will not disarm VRS. To disarm
the VRS during a VRS trigger sequence:
�������
1.
Turn the ignition on.
2.
Press the Valet switch
the pre-programmed number of times to disarm the VRS system.
Note: If the VRS system has begun its chirping sequence, the
ignition must be turned off, then on to disarm. If you are driving
the vehicle at the time, pull to a safe place away from traffic and
follow the triggered sequence disarm procedure.

Glossary of terms
Control Unit: The “brain” of your system. Usually hidden under the dash area of the vehicle. It houses the microprocessor
which monitors your vehicle and controls all of the system’s
functions.
Control center: The control center contains the system’s radio frequency antenna, the valet and override switch, and the status
LED. For maximum remote control range, the control center is usually located at the top of the windshield, centered near the rear
view mirror.
Fail-Safe Starter Kill: An automatic switch controlled by the security system which prevents the vehicle’s starter from cranking
whenever the system is armed. The vehicle is never prevented
from cranking when the system is disarmed, in Valet mode, or
should the starter interrupt switch itself fail. Your system is ready for
this feature, however installation may require additional labor.
Input: A physical connection to the system. An input can be provided by a sensor, pinswitch or through an existing system in the
vehicle, such as ignition or courtesy lights.
LED: A blue display light used to indicate the status of your system,
located on the control center.
Shock Sensor: This is a sensor mounted in the vehicle that is designed to pick up impacts to the vehicle or glass.

31
Siren: Noise generating device usually installed in the engine
com­part­ment of the vehicle. It is responsible for generating the
“chirps” you hear, as well as the six tones you hear while the
alarm is triggered.
Transmitter: Hand-held, remote control which operates the various
func­tions of your system.
Trigger or Triggered Sequence: This is what happens when the
alarm “goes off” or “trips”. The triggered response of your system
consists of the siren sounding and parking light flashing for the
programmed duration.
Valet Switch: Located on the control center, it is used to override
the alarm when a transmitter is lost or damaged, or to enter or
exit Valet mode.
Warn-Away Response: Lighter impacts to the vehicle will generate
the Warning Zone response. It consists of several seconds of siren
chirps and parking light flashes.
Zone: A zone is a separate input that the alarm can recognize as
unique. Each input to the system is connected to a particular zone.
Two or more inputs often share the same zone.

Security & convenience expansions
Listed below are some of the many expansion options avail­able.
Please contact your dealer for a complete explanation of all the
options available to you.
Audio Sensor: Metal on glass, glass cracking, and breaking
glass each produce dis­tinc­tive acoustic signatures. The 506T
audio sensor uses a microphone to pick up sounds, and then
analyzes them with pro­pri­etary acoustic software to determine if
the glass has been struck.
Backup Battery: The 520T keeps the system armed, triggers the
alarm and keeps the starter kill active if main battery power is
dis­con­nect­ed.
Field Disturbance Sensor: An invisible dome of coverage is es­tab­
lished by installing the 508D “radar” sensor. Your security system
can then react to any intrusions into this field with the triggered
sequence.
Digital Tilt Sensor: The 507M can detect any changes to your
car’s parking angle, such as those caused by jerking or towing.
­
Power Trunk Release: The channel two output of the system can
op­er­ate a factory power release for the ve­hi­cle’s trunk or hatch.
(An additional relay may be re­quired.) If the factory release is not
power ac­ti­vat­ed, then Directed’s 522T trunk release solenoid can
often be added.
© 2008 Directed Electronics - All rights reserved.
33
Power Window Control: Automatic power window control is pro­
vid­ed with the 529T and 530T systems.
Valet® Start System: For the ultimate in convenience, the Valet®
start system can start your vehicle, monitor engine functions, and
power your climate control system with a push of a button. Overrev protection, open-hood lockout, brake pedal shutoff, and au­to­
mat­ic timer shutoff are all included. (This feature is only for automatic trans­mis­sion, fuel-injected gasoline vehicles.)
Ultrasonic Cabin Sensor: With the 509U Ultrasonic cabin sensor
you can protect the belongings inside your car.
