The AVS 3010 is the entry level alarm from AVS. It is a none “Star rated” system yet despite this I believe it to be the best alarm in their range.
Seriously let me explain why!
I’ll start off with the siren. It does not have an over-ride key so can be hidden. I’ve said before that I’d have a basic none battery back-up siren over a battery back-up siren with an over-ride key any time as I won’t buy into the marketing spin about these systems offering more protection.
Better Siren. No Sales Spin!
The amusing thing here is that the AVS 3010+ comes with a battery back-up siren (with over-ride key) and costs more money!
I’m sure that most car thieves would simply snap the flimsy siren bracket then drop the siren into a bucket of water!
This begs the question why would anyone pay more money for an AVS 3010+?
Better Remote Controls
The remote controls have the same case as all the other AVS alarms so still break where the key ring attaches, but the 3010 has a separate lock and unlock button which makes it far more user-friendly.
The 3010 has two immobiliser cuts which are active when the alarm is armed. Whilst there is no attack proof security housing for the immobiliser it still offers a similar level of protection as the AVS A4 an S Series, neither of which can really claim to have an attack-proof housing!
The thing I like most about the 3010 is that you know what you are getting and it is not hiding behind a Star rating system that misleads you into thinking it is effective.
Also available as an AVS 3010+ which has a battery back-up siren and vibration sensor!
Obsessive Rating: The best AVS have to offer?
The term “Less is more” seems very apt for this one. But still not as good as a Viper 3010!
