Important Information
Congratulations on the purchase of your state-of-the-art vehicle
security 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 a preprinted dealer certificate
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 a miniature 12V battery, type GP23A, that will last
approximately one year under normal use. When the battery weakens, operating range will be reduced and the LED on the remote
will dim.
Your Warranty
Your warranty card must be returned and the bar code serial number must not be removed. If the warranty card is not returned, you
do not have a warranty. It is also necessary to keep your proof of
purchase, which reflects that the product was installed by an authorized dealer. Make sure that you receive the warranty card from
your dealer.
FCC/ID Notice
This device complies with Part 15 of FCC rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) This device may not cause
harmful interference, and (2) This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired
operation.
Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party
responsible for compliance could void the user's authority to operate this device.

Transmitter Functions
The receiver uses a computer-based Learn Routine to learn the
transmitter buttons. This makes it possible to assign any transmitter button to any receiver 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.

for less than one second
before arming or disarming the system. An optional auxiliary function, such as trunk release, can be controlled by pressing
for
1.5 seconds.)

An optional auxiliary convenience or expansion function that you
have added to your system can be activated by pressing

5
Expanded Configuration
Your system has an expanded configuration that can be utilized
when upgrading to the four-button remote. In the expanded configuration, your system will operate similarly to many factory keyless entry systems that use separate remote transmitter buttons
for the arm, disarm, panic and auxiliary output functions. MultiLevel Security Arming is also possible in the expanded configuration. Contact your dealer for details.
Using Your System
The button numbers used in the descriptions 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.
Arming
You can activate, or arm, the system by pressing
of your
transmitter for one second. When the system arms, you will hear a
short siren sound, or chirp, and see the parking lights 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, showing that the system is actively protecting
6

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.
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.
NOTE: 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 sensor 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 triggered, 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.
© 1999 Directed Electronics, Inc.
7
■
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
cranking.
Multi-Level Security Arming
Multi-Level Security is a feature that is only available when using
an optional four-button remote with the Expanded Configuration.
(See Transmitter Functions section.) Multi-Level Security Arming
allows you to select which of the security system's inputs or sensors will be active and which will be bypassed at the time that the
system is armed. (See Table of Zones section.) Pressing the arm
button (only on an Expanded Configuration four-button transmitter) again within five seconds of arming the security system will
activate the Multi-Level Security Arming feature. Each time the
arm button is pressed again, a different security level is selected.
The different security levels can be selected as follows:
■
Pressing the arm button one time: The siren chirps once. The
system is armed.
8
© 1999 Directed Electronics, Inc.
■
Pressing the arm button a second time within five seconds:
The siren chirps twice followed by a long chirp. Zone Two is
now bypassed.
■
Pressing the arm button a third time within five seconds: The
siren chirps three times followed by a long chirp. Zone Four
is now bypassed.
■
Pressing the arm button a fourth time within five seconds:
The siren chirps four times followed by a long chirp. Zones
Two and Four are now bypassed.
■
Pressing the arm button a fifth time within five seconds: The
siren chirps five times followed by a long chirp. All input
zones, except the ignition, are now bypassed.
NOTE: Multi-Level Security Arming only applies to a single arming cycle.
Once the system is disarmed and then re-armed, all the zones will be
active again.
Arming While Driving
Your system can be armed while driving the vehicle! Simply press
on your transmitter for 1.5 seconds while the vehicle is running, or the ignition is on. The system will chirp once and then
once more to indicate that the ignition is on. The system will not
respond to any input except the door triggers and the starter kill
relay (if installed) will not be activated. The system will disarm
automatically when the ignition is turned off. The siren will chirp
twice and the LED will stop flashing.
NOTE: If programmed for the optional Vehicle Recovery System (VRS)
feature, arming with the transmitter will arm the VRS feature. (See VRS
section of this guide.)

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 system proudly offers High Security Disarm. High Security
Disarm is a feature that makes it possible to silence and reset the
system when 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 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 the disarm button again, after resetting the system, will disarm the system. Pressing
during the first six sec-
onds of the triggered sequence will disarm the system immediately. The six second timer is provided for your convenience, in case
you accidentally trigger the system.
Disarming Without a Transmitter
This feature allows you to disarm the system without the transmitter should it be lost, damaged or disabled. In order to disarm
10
© 1999 Directed Electronics, Inc.
without a 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 of the Valet switch.
To disarm the security system,
turn the ignition to the "on"
position. Press the Valet switch
the selected number of times (1-
DRW-35
5 times) within 15 seconds. The
system should now disarm. If it
does not, you may have waited
too long; turn the ignition off
and on and try again.
LOCATION OF VALET SWITCH______________________________
IMPORTANT! The unit can be programmed to respond to 1-5 pulses of
the Valet® switch for the disarm function. Be sure to check with the
installer for the desired programming.
Silent Mode
To temporarily turn off the arm or disarm chirps, use Silent Mode™.
Simply press
briefly before arming or disarming, and the con-
firmation chirp(s) will be eliminated for that one operation only.
If you want the arm/disarm chirps turned off permanently, your
dealer can do this for you.
NOTE: 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 1.5 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.
To enter or exit Valet® Mode with the Valet switch:
1. Turn the ignition on.
2. Turn the ignition off.
3. Press and release the Valet
switch within 10 seconds.
DRW-35
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 DEI®’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. Here’s how it works:
The alarm triggers three times. Each time, the same sensor or
switch is triggering the alarm. The three triggers are within 60
minutes of each other. NPC™ will interpret this pattern of 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.
© 1999 Directed Electronics, Inc.
13
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.
NOTE: 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.
14
© 1999 Directed Electronics, Inc.
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.
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). 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.

15
Table of Zones
The zone number is the number of LED flashes used by the system
to identify a specific input. The standard input assignments are
listed below, along with spaces to write in any optional sensors or
switches you have had installed.

DEALER-INSTALLED
OPTIONS
If the Warn Away® response is triggered, the LED will not report it.
NOTE: 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.
16

Code Hopping
The receiver and transmitters each use a mathematical formula
called an algorithm to change their code 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 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 simply press
of the
transmitter several times within range of the vehicle. The alarm
will automatically re-sync and respond to the transmitters normally.
High Frequency
Your system transmits and receives at 434 MHz. 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 DEI®.
Using a DEI® Bitwriter, 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 Bitwriter and
the necessary software. Check with your dealer for more information.
Rapid Resume Logic
This DEI® 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.
18

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 on the vehicle's battery and prevents the system from draining the 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 can also be programmed to prevent the doors
from locking when the ignition is turned on with any door
open. If your installer is programming the security system
with the DEI Bitwriter or a personal computer and the
TechSoft Programmer, 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.
20
© 1999 Directed Electronics, Inc.
■
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 system 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 arm the car with the remote and
then disarm it with the remote. 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.
© 1999 Directed Electronics, Inc.
21
■
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 DEI Bitwriter or a personal computer and
the TechSoft Programmer, 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 programmed off.
■
Valet pulse count: The number of presses of the Valet® switch
required to disarm the security system or the VRS® system can
be programmed from 1-5 presses. The default setting is one
press.
■
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, resulting in a unique, easily identifiable siren sound. The siren
chirps can be either full volume or 6 decibels quieter than
the full alarm blast.
22

Installation 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 disarm button within 15 seconds of disarming unlocks
the other doors.
■
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 manual for a complete explanation of
how the Vehicle Recovery System operates.

23
Vehicle Recovery
®
System (VRS )
The optional VRS feature is designed to ensure that any unauthorized 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.
DEI® 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 alreadyrunning engine – it can only prevent an engine from starting in
the first place.
Any installation which allows this product to shut down a vehicle's
engine when it is running is contrary to the product’s design and
intended usage, and DEI® hereby expressly disclaims any liability
resulting therefrom.
24
© 1999 Directed Electronics, Inc.
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.
VRS® 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 continuous blast.
© 1999 Directed Electronics, Inc.
25
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
ignition 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 sequence 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 the disarm button on the transmitter for one second. The lights will flash
and the siren will chirp twice.
26
© 1999 Directed Electronics, Inc.
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-proDRW-35
grammed number of times to disarm the
VRS® system.

Glossary of Terms
Control Unit: The "brain" of your system. Usually hidden underneath
the dash area of the vehicle. It houses the microprocessor which
monitors your vehicle and controls all of the system's functions.
Failsafe® 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 kill 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 to existing systems in the vehicle,
such as ignition or courtesy lights.
LED: Red light mounted somewhere in the vehicle. It is used to
indicate the status of your system. It is also used to report triggers and faults in the system or sensors.
Shock Sensor: This system is packaged with a Doubleguard® Shock
Sensor. This sensor is mounted in the vehicle and designed to pick
up impacts to the vehicle or glass.
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.
28
© 1999 Directed Electronics, Inc.
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 30 seconds of siren sounding and parking light flashing.
Valet® Switch: A small push-button switch mounted somewhere
inside the vehicle. 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 Warn Away 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
Here we have listed only 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 established by the installing the 508D "radar" sensor. Your security system can then react to any intrusions into this field with the triggered sequence.
Headlight and Parking Light Automation: The 545T Nite-Lite®
will automatically turn on your parking and headlights when it
gets dark. In addition, the 545T will turn your headlights on
whenever the windshield wipers are used. A transmitter function
can also be used to turn on your parking and headlights for a programmed time.
30
© 1999 Directed Electronics, Inc.
Power Trunk Release: The channel two output of the system can
operate a factory power release for the vehicle’s trunk or hatch.
(An optional relay may be required.) If the factory release is not
power activated, the DEI's 522T trunk release solenoid can often
be added.
Power Window Control: Automatic power window control is provided 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 automatic timer shutoff are all included. (This feature is only for automatic transmission, fuel-injected gasoline vehicles.)
820T Valet® Car★Com™: The 820T Valet® Car★Com™ is a one-way
pager system that can be added to any compatible DEI security
system. Using the 820T, many of the security and convenience features of your DEI security system can be operated from any touch
tone telephone.
