The remote will work with a number of other Viper alarms which I’ve listed below.
The remote has a green LED that flashes when any of the buttons are pressed.
Battery: CR2032 (X1)
Frequency Range (MHZ) 433.92
Compatible with the following Viper Systems:
Probably more I’ve missed too! I’m not listing other DEI brands here…
Replacement cases are available with the standard button configuration with the orange horn/panic button.
There is also the option of a yellow button with a star which is more suited to remote engine start systems.
It’s a good option for those who like to customize the functionality, or even add an auxiliary expansion module.
There is a Japanese version I’ve seen fitted to some imported cars that looks the same but works on a different frequency.
How do you identify the Japanese version?
First off it has a solid RED LED rather the flashing green one. It also transmits on 302MHZ so is not compatible with the systems sold here.
If you open the remote up it looks different too so you can check even if you have a flat battery:
For anyone who requires a Japanese version, I’ve got a couple kicking around so let me know if you require one.
Finally, Directed Electronics has heaps of different brand names overseas so here are some more 474 remote controls with different shape cases, etc:
The Hornet 474T is the remote sold with the Hornet 433H along with some other Hornet alarm systems.
Plus there are others with different button layouts which I have not posted here…
