Toyota Camry Security System

The current generation Toyota Camry features SmartKey entry with push to start button. It includes a factory immobiliser and a basic horn alarm as standard.

But is the Toyota Camry Security System any good?

Well, it is potentially vulnerable to modern theft methods, it also lacks internal movement sensors. There are a number of systems available to beef up the factory security.

I’ll run through the upgrade options.

A good upgrade is Keyless Block. This protects the Camry from Relay Amplification Attacks. I’ve tested it on the Camry and it works perfectly. More details on how it works can be found in the link below.


Vodafone Automotive Cobra AK4615 CAN-BUS upgrade alarm.

The Cobra works with the existing keyless system and adds a super loud siren and ultrasonic internal movement sensors to the car. The alarm works perfectly with the XV70 Camry.

The alarm works with both the remote buttons and the SmartKey proximity locking.

If the alarm is armed and the boot is opened with the remote the alarm disarms. It will automatically re-arm upon the boot being closed.

Optional ADR Card

Window Closure

I’ve done some development work on the alarm so that it can close the windows when it arms. (There is also the option of COMFORT closure for those who want window closure without an alarm upgrade at the bottom of the page).

Here is how the alarm looks installed in the car:

Comfort Window Closure

Remote Window Closure is another good upgrade for the Camry. COMFORT from Author alarm works perfectly with the Camry and so you’ll never leave a window open again.
