Update: June 2017
All 3 series alarms now come with a TX-90 Green LED remote which replaces the horrible TX-111.
Note: I have requested that they come with this remote but do not expect it if purchasing elsewhere.
The 3 Series is Dynatron/Cyclops entry level Insurance rated Alarm/Immobiliser. It is basically the same as the 7 series but without the transponder remote. The TX-111 remote is a simple yet practical two button design which allows the user to silent arm the alarm via the remote as well as have the optional boot pop.
The TX-111 replaces the TX-11 remote which had a tendency for the rubber buttons to split. The TX-11 case would also break if given a hard life so the TX-111 is a much welcome improvement, but it still suffers from reliability issues with the battery terminals!
Dynatron/Cyclops 3 Series Range of Alarms
D3400 (Paralyser 355) Remote Immobiliser (Optional alarm that uses the horn for a siren)
D3600 (Paralyser 375) Alarm/Immobiliser/Glass Break + Siren
D3800 (Paralyser 385) Alarm/Immobiliser/Glass Break + BB Siren
Like the Dynatron 7 Series, the 3 Series has a variety of siren options, the D3400 uses the vehicle’s horn, where the D3600 comes with a standard siren.
The D3800 has a battery back-up siren but the big weakness with the battery back-up siren is the fact that it has to be accessible for the over-ride key. This is fine if you want that 5-star box ticked for your insurance company but in reality, it offers no real added protection.
Dynatron 3 Series RRP:
Obsessive Rating: The D3600 is highly recommended as a 4 star
A reliable system which is easy to live with, the new TX-111 remote is simple and rugged. However, the siren on the D3800 lets the Dynatron down so I’d be looking at options from Cobra or Autowatch if I was considering a 5-star system.
