Proximity alarm compatible with Factory Remote Start

Hey guys,

I stopped by Car Toys to discuss getting an alarm system for my 'vert. I'd like to keep my top down for quick stops and figured a proximity alarm would be a good thing. They said that unless I disable the factory remote start, I wouldn't be able to use it without setting the alarm off. UNLESS I buy their own remote start as a module for the alarm they wanted to send me.....2 fobs, I don't think so!

Does the factory have a decent proximity/impact alarm system that will work with its own remote start/door locks? I don't want to pay for something again that I already bought.

Any thoughts or opinions would be appreciated.

Tib

This is the oem alarm add on: http://tinyurl.com/3sbm9fr

And this is the sensor you need: Viper - Invisibeam® Field Disturbance Sensor

Both products are available at any DEI dealers.
I am a dealer in my area only, thats how they work.
I have been using DEI stuff since 1987.

Thanks Yellow 2SS, just the information I've been needing! I'll see if my dealer will install or find someone in W. WA who will!

Roger, car goes in for PDIM software update tomorrow. Sending Yellow 2SS's suggestions with the wife to ask their parts guy about. I looked on Viper's and two other alarm manufacturer's websites but they are almost worthless as far as specifics on OEM integration goes. The biggest pain in the butt with our Camaro is that the keys are integrated with the fob, so you can't just ditch the fob and take on the new one from the alarm company.....and I have enough bloody fobs for one lifetime!

Eric says his parts guy says it can't be done......at least not integrated with factory equipment. I'm hoping he's wrong.....

I know this thread is a bit old but figured I would post here instead of starting up a new thread.

Anyways I called 3 places and each place said there is no way to add a sensor and such to the factory alarm system. Has anyone be able to find out if that is right or not? If I have to I'll get a new alarm system but if I can just upgrade it and keep my fob than I will be more than happy. I'm knew to alarms as I had a 2001 accent for 10 years before I bought myself this car for my bday last year. So I'm not use to all the bells and whistle new cars have haha. Didn't know till I read that the factory alarm won't go off if someone bust your window and climbs through or if someone is attempting to tow or steal your wheels. So I want to upgrade to a sensor and 2way. Been seeing that the viper alarm seems to be everyone's choice.

But yea if that is the only way to get those 2 things, is by buying a new alarm system, than I will go ahead and do that route.
