clifford also have good coverage of after-sales service, can go back to re-configure the settings if the module u bought is configurable. They are also at TTDI/Damansara Utama there if not mistaken..

bro, whether the remote has screen or not depends on what type of alarm you want. There are two types of alarm in the market:
  • 1-way alarm - You communicate with the alarm only, send signals for it to arm, disarm, trunk lift, etc.
  • 2-way alarm - You communicate with the alarm as well as the alarm communicate to you. The alarm will send signal to your car for arm / disarm status, sensor triggers, trunk lift confirmation, etc.

2-way alarm will be more expensive than 1-way since it has more functions, and most of 2-way alarm has LCD screen.
