Note: I do not sell or recommend Uniden alarm systems or remote controls
I’ve just checked the Uniden website and they still claim that the VS2600XR is a 5 Star alarm approved by the New Zealand Security Association.
This is very misleading as the New Zealand Security Association 5 star rating system was buried on the 1st April 2012.
I’ve also noted that Uniden refers to the alarm as being the “next generation”. This makes it sound like its cutting edge and modern, when in fact it’s a horrid old brick!
Undien Car Alarm Reality
Sadly the truth is that Uniden “Star rated” alarms are rubbish. They normally take me no more than a couple of seconds to defeat.
The video below shows how I disarmed the immobiliser on this one without the remote in a matter of seconds:
This is possible because nearly all the Uniden alarms I have come across are still on the default over-ride pin number. The process is exactly the same if the alarm is armed or just the immobiliser is armed.
Quite how they got “approved” or who actually did the approval remains a mystery. It simply makes a mockery out of the existing AS/NZS4601 standard for immobilisers!
