Any have a responder Alarm system

I was looking at one of those two way alarm systems with the little key chain that has the LCD screen, and just wondering if anyone has any opinions or experience with this product. It is somewhat spendy so I want to know how good it works before I purchase one. They claim it works 1/4 mile away even through walls (since it uses FM). Wondering if these claims are true.

Are either of you satisfied with your purchase? Was it worth the extra dough? Does it really work a 1/4 mile away?

I don't think the 1/4 mile part really matters. The only way it'd be useful is if you spot some 16 year old kid looking at your car in a very suspicious way, and you hit the Panic button.

With Toyota's alarm system, it locks the car again after about 15 seconds if you haven't opened a door. It confuses me sometimes. spineyes

Absolutely Red awesome canyon road hugger with impressive straight-line acceleration.

I have some generic one.. but it does lots of stuff...
It gets annoying some times.. when you are near your car.. even at class room... if some fart can past by triggering warning not actually alarm going off... it alarms the remote... but if you are is parked on close to street it goes off very often... (yes you can lower the sensitivity)... but that was the bad part of it...

But mine suppose to work over a mile.. but yea right...
It would work like all the way across the parking lot... without blocking... few hundred feet for sure...

It has like warning, alarm went off, door open, trunk open features on the remote..
I can start the car... roll the window down... and when I arm the cat it rolls up the window automatically..
