VIPER.
You can even get it with an attachment that you can take with you where ever and it will alert you when something is up with your car.

Hey Bunny, I was at their site the other night, didn't see anything for the Camaro 5th Gen. Am I missing something?

I don't think they are all car specific.
Oh - looked at the website. gotcha, i see what you are talking about. Thats for the module thing that they ask for they car year. It makes the process easier... But its not necessary.
But I know a guy with a 2010 with Viper, I think you just have to go to the right electronic place and they should know what to do.
This is the system I was talking about.

I have a viper on a 2004 chevy express van and a 2002 ford taurus. I don't think the make or model matters. It's a great system.

This is what it says about them asking for your car & year.

"Many of today's vehicles require an interface module to create a seamless digital connection between your vehicle and the Viper system. Select your vehicle below to see if it needs a module. If your vehicle is not listed in the vehicle selection boxes, then please click the Continue button and talk to your installer about possible interface module requirements."

So its not necessary to know they year & car. It just makes it easier. Talk to someone at Radio Shack or Car Toys or your local alarm/tech shop that does instillations. But the system does work with the vehicle. =]]

Yes it does.
If you go to build your own or to your installer people, you can build your own system to meet your needs.

Since the Camaro will come factory with remote start do we have to get a system that has remote start too or can we still use the factory system?

Reason I ask is because if you have to get an alarm system with remote start then you will have to carry 3 key fobs with you at all times if you want to use any of the extra features as the LCD 2 way fob in the system you linked only comes with 2 buttons (arm and disarm). Plus after looking at a lot of reviews, the Viper remote start system absolutely s*cks.

Personally I was looking at buying this one. http://www.viper.com/P-3302V/Viper+5...ecurity+System

It does not include the crappy Viper remote start system, the LCD key fob has all 5 buttons so you can use all the extra features without having to carry an additional key fob like you would have to with the 5901, comes with the anti-carjacking technology that the 5901 does not have and is $200 cheaper. The downside that I can see is that it doesn't have the 1 mile range that the 5901 has but this range is based on unobstructed view with the car so if you are indoors or buildings obstruct your line of sight, the range is about the same.

OK, putting on my flame suit. I do not know much about alarm systems so please educate me. Is the security the car comes with not good? Seems like the standard security with the car plus On-Star is a good solution?

Would like to understand what I am getting with Viper versus what is already on the car. Sorry in advance for the dumb question.

The Camaro comes with base security system tied in with the Onstar which is good in my opinion. I want the Viper for detecting when my car is being lifted or moved, that's not something the Camaro security system has.

I recommend any DEI product. That's Avital, Hornet, Viper, Clifford. Same factory different name. To keep your GM warranty golden you probably want to stick with a DEI certified installer. And 2 Way with pager. Anything without the pager is basically useless for todays smash and grab.

DEI passlock kit, DEI battery backup siren, DEI battery backup for brain, dual zone sensor etc etc.

There are other brands just that's what I have used since the 90's. I used to use there talking module but too many people mess with your car lol. Kids would hit my car with basketball to make it talk.

the keys are laser cut, so I would imagine that the car is hard to steal, plus if you have the onstar they can track it for you.

yeah, alarms are dumb anyway. Unless you get a two way alarm. At least those tell you right away if your vehicle is being stolen. The only problem is the distance is crap.

The reason I would get a seperate alarm system besides onstar is alot of people know how to disconnect it. And it basically only helps you in an accident or in finding your car if it's been stolen (if the system hasn't disconnected it already).

Ravelco anti-theft device.
Not an alarm, an advanced kill switch.
Once installed, you pull the plug and the car CANNOT be started.
