They are legit. I got my 2 way compustar alarm installed there. Good prices too. They recently moved to Burnaby from their Surrey location.

There's also two much more experienced sponsors that do quality work on RS



All connections soldered and heatshrunk, all wiring taped/loomed up with all the factory wiring.

Pricing varies on the model and features you want. More if you have an oem immobilizer or vehicle with some sort of can-bus system for the door locks/lights/etc. Most places charge "cheap" because they do a quick install which usually means a shit mess of wiring and alot of t-tap quick connectors which comes loose very often which leads to frequent revisits to fix things. Thats often why reputable shops almost always solder their connections to ensure you don't get loose connections years down the road.

$349 and up I would guestimate for a basic compustar paging alarm system with the basic bells and whistles from one of the sponsors.

Again your alarm is only going to be as good as the install and features you add on. Anyone actually interested in learning how to secure your vehicle better please read my FAQ (keep in mind I wrote this for RS like 8+ years ago, i've updated it a little bit in 2010) ----------->http://www.revscene.net/forums/63042...ity-101-a.html<---------- RS Security FAQ

What happens when down the road you want to take out the alarm and all the connections were soldered? In that case is it better to have t taps and connectors so you can just unplug and pull out your alarm? Same goes other electronics such as gauges.

^ I would think by disconnected the alarm harness and wire around a couple things is all you need to take out an alarm system for resale purposes.

They installed my fog lights for me. Took a little longer than expected but nice flat rate. Also got a bunch of LEDs off them. So far so good . I think they're more well known for HID conversions. Their fb page is filled with them

T-Taps are never as reliable. I've be worried if someone installed an alarm/remote starter using T-Taps. Especially for the primary wires that pull lots of current.

T-Taps are just for doing things faster, not better. Sure it will get the job done, but never reliably. Mind you this is just my opinion. To each their own I suppose.

It will always be better to solder, unless you're testing something prior to soldering because you're unsure. It's not like you can just unplug a couple things and drop the alarm + wiring out, if it IS that easy then it'll be that easy for thieves too.

actually i think it is as easy as unplugging. You could just unplug all the wiring where it plugs into the brain. I guess its a matter of how well the installer can tuck it away.

Well if you're unplugging just the brain, you're leaving the harness behind either way. At that point the install method doesn't have any effect on the ease of removal.
