The 446RiS is a 4 star alarm made by Autowatch, the 446RiSG is the same alarm but with an added glass break sensor. It’s also known as the 446RLi (AU).
Like the 446RLi Premium the 446RiS has a very small and neat alarm module which is made to comply with Thatcham standards and has an attack proof security housing.
The Siren has a very distinctive sound with soft arm/disarm chirps, yet it can also draw plenty of attention if it needs to. The 446RiS has most of the features that you would expect from a decent alarm system without going over the top. Too often alarms have a big list of features such as built in turbo timer, OEM remote options etc etc, yet lose sight of the important bit. An alarm is a security device and if fitted correctly the autowatch does this better then any other alarm in this price range.
Attack proof Security Housing!
The 446RiS/RiSG is the only NZ alarm in its class that has passed Thatchams tests on its security housing. This means that even if the Module is found it is still hard to get inside and by-pass the Immobiliser cuts.
The 446RiS is great for a good install due to its compact size and can be hidden in places that the Mongoose M60/M80 or AVS range simply couldn’t fit. Having said that good installers are about a rare as rocking horse shit so don’t make the assumption that it will be well hidden!
One annoying design feature with the 446RiS is that it is programmed to auto-re-arm, but not re-lock. This is a horrid design flaw as it allows you to open the door and set the alarm off! I wire all of my installs to prevent the Auto re-arm from happening as nobody likes having a false alarm.
If you want an Autowatch with re-arm and re-lock then you’ll need look at the 446RLi Premium.
Simple 1 button remote does it all.
446RiS $520.00 ($650.00 with Ultrasonic Sensors)

Obsessive Rating: A good insurance approved alarm without pointless features!
Great alarm but the 446RiS lacks is the boot pop option and silent arm from the remote. If these are features which you need then the Dynatron D3600 may be a better option
