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.
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 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!
