Theft Alert4

The Remote Access system adds the optional Perimeter Plus vehicle security system. The system triggers if vehicle doors are opened or the 2-stage shock/impact sensor is triggered. Once triggered, the Remote Access system will send you a text and/or e-mail which will tell you if a door was opened or the shock sensor was triggered.

Note: Shock/impact sensitivity is adjustable and varies with adjustment level, location of the impact and other factors.
