The Crime Guard 750i6 car alarm has all the basic features you would look for in a basic car alarm system, and all in an attractive package. From the variety of sirens and alarms to the sleek-looking remote, the Crime Guard car alarms are a fantastic choice. However, because there are so many features on the small remote, you will need to set aside some time to read the user manual and really familiarize yourself with the car alarm system.
This multi-tone alarm has some outstanding features. The alarm can lock and unlock your car. You can arm the alarm with a simple push of the button and when it sounds, your remote will beep. You can also set the remote to a vibrate setting so you’ll always be able to know when the condition of your car changes.
As there are incidents that occur in or around your vehicle, Crime Guard car alarms will send you detailed and automated alerts. There are basic alerts that someone has bumped the door or trunk, and there are much more advanced alert that your car is being moved. The shock and door sensors will alert you immediately if there is an attempt to break into or steal your car.
The shock sensors will even sound if there is an attempt to raise the car on jacks or even tow it without disarming the car alarm system. After the car alarms have sounded you have a few different options. You can reset the alarm while keeping the alarm armed. You can also totally disable the alarm. And finally, you can use the starter-kill function to stop the car engine from running. This will effectively stop the car from running and thwart any attempts to steal the car.
Crime Guard car alarms also have a remote start capability. This addition is optional but extremely useful. You can start the car with the remote and the car will adjust the temperature to a much more comfortable level. The engine runs until the brake pedal is pushed to put the car in gear. If the key is not inserted and the brake is pressed, the engine will turn off immediately.
Crime Guard car alarms have an impressive feature set, but the remotes are somewhat difficult to use. There are so many options available and only a couple of buttons and a very small screen on the remote. It will take some time to familiarize yourself with all the functions.
Because there are so many intricate details involved with the car alarms, we suggest having it installed by a professional. Many mechanics and car audio stores offer quality and quick installation at reasonable prices. For those that are familiar with the systems and want to install the car alarms themselves, the manufacturer does have detailed user manuals and customer service options.
Help & Support
The manufacturer has posted detailed customer support manuals online. There are a variety of email addresses and telephone support lines that offer detailed customer service. The auto alarm is covered under a lifetime warranty by the manufacturer.
