Code Alarm products, sold by VOXX Electronics Corporation, are electronic key fobs with radio transmitters that are designed to replace original equipment manufacturer keys or keyless entry systems. Code Alarm automotive systems include car security, remote start and keyless entry systems, as of April 2015.
Code Alarm products add an additional level of security to OEM automotive security systems. The transmitters offer a variety of features, such as remote lock and unlock, horn activation, window operation, trunk unlock, panic mode, and remote start. Some transmitters have up to a 1-mile range. Most systems accept up to four transmitters, and the company also sells replacement transmitters on its website at VoxxElectronics.com.
When deciding which Code Alarm system to purchase, drivers must consider which vehicle functions they want the transmitter to control. The vehicle make, model and year also affect which Code Alarm system is appropriate. Some vehicle security or remote start systems require additional hardware or wiring, so drivers should also request a quote for installation costs before purchasing the system.
North American drivers purchase more than 1 million remote start or keyless entry systems each year, as of September 2014, according to the eBay buying guide. Some other automotive security and remote start manufacturers include Viper, Avital, Performance Teknique and Drone by Compustar.
