EASYGUARD EC003 Smart Key PKE Passive Keyless Entry Car Alarm System-Review

Protecting your vehicle is not the sole reason why you should purchase a remote-controlled car security/starter system. Installing a capable car security system also protects you and your family, your belongings inside the car, as well as pricey interior equipment within the car such as the stereo. These are some of the additional reasons as to why people have continued to use remote car alarm systems.

With an adept security system, your vehicle will be difficult to steal or carnap, in addition to making your life free from hassle. The handheld transmitter that you carry allows you to manage or disarm the alarm whenever something or someone tampers with your vehicle, lock and unlock the doors, and kill the starter from turning over. What’s more is that a system like this lets you use your own smartphone as an alternative remote device that allows you to monitor your vehicle’s safety. Convenience combined with armed protection, right?

If you are considering installing one of these security systems in your vehicle, take a look at the EASYGUARD EC003 Smart Key PKE Passive Keyless Entry Car Alarm System. It is one of the most affordable, yet handy remote alarm systems you can find today.

Advantages

The EASYGUARD EC003 Smart key PKE Passive Keyless Entry Car Alarm System is well-suited for many different DC12V cars. DC12V means that a car is equipped with a 12 DC voltage electrical system. Some cars like these include most manually operated ones, as well as automatic cars, and petrol- and diesel-powered vehicles. This means that this remote alarm system is compatible with almost all cars since only a few use 24V batteries.

This car alarm system is armed with a PKE, or passive keyless entry, system which lets you lock or unlock the doors of your car with just a click of a button or even with just your nearby presence. This feature is highly convenient particularly when you want to get inside your car but your hands are full carrying baggage or grocery bags, you will find it hard to open the doors manually. When you are 1 to 2 meters away from your vehicle, it automatically locks or unlocks the doors.

Although it is mainly used as a car alarm system, it also has a remote-start feature which allows you to pre-ignite the engine from far away. This gives you the option to pre-warm or pre-cool the interior of your vehicle, or provides you with the convenience of starting or stopping the engine on the go.

The system also has an automated central door locking feature which lets you simultaneously lock or unlock all the doors with just one button. In addition, the remote also has a trunk release button for more convenience. These features will make your experience hands free, giving you relative ease when you want to slide in or out of the driver’s seat.

Another feature of this system is that it comes with two separate key remote fobs. In some instances where you misplaced the first one, you can still use the alarm system because of the spare remote. Only one of the two works at a particular moment, while the spare goes into sleep mode unless you activate it by pressing any button.

In case you lose both the main and the spare remotes, the system has an emergency override which lets you disarm your alarm with your ignition key or a PIN code.

Disadvantages

With this remote car alarm/starter system, we found that the installation manual is poorly translated which makes it hard to follow. Like any other alarm or starter systems, we suggest that you have it installed by a professional to lessen any risk that may happen. However, if you have a lot of experience installing systems like these up your sleeve, you can still try to do it yourself since some have found that this particular system is easier to install than others.

Although it comes with two key fobs, with one as a spare, both remotes do not have an LCD screen on them. This makes it difficult to know what is occurring at any moment in your vehicle particularly if it is out of your sight.

Verdict

With the presence of a wide array of functionalities, the EASYGUARD EC003 Smart Key PKE Passive Keyless Entry Car Alarm System makes for what is needed in both an alarm and a starter system. It makes using your vehicle more convenient and definitely a lot safer because of its complete remote-control functionality. Consider this option if you want a car alarm system that is relatively inexpensive but with strong and quality features.
