This post is aimed at the EVO-ALL alarm feature only, anything relating to the EVO-ONE alarm feature will be posted in another post (THIS ONE).
The EVO-ALARM feature is compatible on vehicles that we can monitor the vehicles door status through Can-Bus. On vehicles that we can also monitor the OEM remotes, this means you could control the EVO-ALL alarm from the factory remotes. The main reason we have added the EVO-ALARM feature is to add that much appreciated extra convenience of security in vehicles that do not have a factory alarm.
Since this is a firmware related feature, all current units you have in stock or have installed already can benefit from this! (this is also a prime example of why we have firmware updates).
Here are some possibilties of how or when you can integrate the EVO-ALARM feature.
When OEM Remote Monitoring is functional and 3x Lock Start / Stop is also compatible, activating the EVO-ALARM feature will allow you to control both remote starting your vehicle and arming / disarming the EVO-ALARM feature.
You can also use the EVO-ALARM feature in conjunction with any datalink compatible remote starter when using the EVO-ALL as the transponder bypass and Can-Bus integration module.
The EVO-ALARM feature can also be controlled via an RF-KIT when doing a Stand Slone Remote Starter installation with the EVO-ALL (basically exactly like #1 but controlled via aftermarket remotes).
Use the EVO-ALL as just a basic alarm controlled either via the OEM remotes (if the vehcile is compatible with OEM Remote Monitoring) or through an RF-KIT.
An important and often overlooked step, is that the EVO-ALARM feature has its own installation guide! You can find it here : Download Installation Guide This installation covers the basic connections required to have the EVO-ALL act as an alarm. Although there are three different diagrams, THEY ARE ALL THE SAME when it comes to the EVO-ALL connections. We only seperated into three diagrams to show that it can be used on it's own, with an RF-KIT or with a separate remote starter.
coming back to finish this at a later date....
