The AVS C3 car alarm communicates with your vehicle’s CAN-Bus platform for seamless integration into car’s factory system.
This car alarm offers an affordable security system for any CAN-Bus vehicle as it will trigger the alarm if the doors, bonnet or boot is opened. The AVS C3 alarm is designed to be operated from your car’s factory remote.
Control the alarm with your factory remote
Simply hop out of the car and lock your vehicle as usual – the alarm will automatically arm from your factory remote. Disarm and boot release (if available) also work as usual (the alarm will disarm if the boot release button is pushed).
Or add a rolling code AVS remote
You also have the option to operate the alarm from a separate AVS CAN remote on selected vehicles*. This can be a much more cost effective option than purchasing an additional factory remote or as a replacement if you have lost or broken your existing remotes.
Door, bonnet and boot protection
A good standard alarm installation will include protection for the doors, bonnet and boot. If any of these are opened while the alarm is armed the alarm will trigger.
In a CAN-Bus equipped vehicle normally the doors and boot will trigger the alarm utilising the factory sensors. We recommend also requesting the installation of a bonnet trigger* if the car does not have this as standard.
The siren will sound for 30 seconds if any of above intrusions are detected.
- Optional rolling code AVS CAN remote*
- CAN control of factory features like window roll up for total closure*
- Blue LED warning light
- Three year warranty
- EU certified
* Feature may be vehicle dependent and/or additional charges will apply
