Notable Features of the AVITAL 5305L Review

In warmer climates, this feature helps with the cases of car-related heatstroke by letting users turn on the air-conditioning and lower the car temperature before they arrive at the car.

All this is done through the transmission of radio signals from the remote control to the vehicle.

2) Two-way liquid crystal display remote

The two-way LCD remote is a feature that allows you to send and receive commands to and from the vehicle.

This LCD device also relays alerts and notifications to you, and is used to monitor the vitals and status of the car security.

This remote feature functions like; remote start, trunk release, disarm or arm alarm, car door lock or unlock, etc. It also functions as an alarm of sorts.

This signal is then transmitted to the sensor installed in your vehicle which interprets the command and carries it out.

4) Sensitive shock sensor

The dual zone shock sensor is sensitive and discerning enough to differentiate between minor disturbances and the more serious disturbances.

The minor disturbances trigger beeps and chirps that simply notify you of the disturbance, thereby preventing a false alarm. 

While the alarm with the siren blaring is triggered when the shock sensor detects tampering of a more serious nature.

FAQs – Frequently Asked Questions On AVITAL 5305L Review

Does this security system come with a motion detector?

Why doesn’t my alarm go off when I hit or push it hard enough to rock it?

The dual zone shock sensor is not just sensitive, but it can also differentiate between motion that is threatening to the vehicle’s security and motion that is a false alarm.

Can I regulate the sensitivity?

Yes, you can certainly regulate the sensitivity of the impact sensor. 

Does that package include a bypass model?

No, you will have to buy the bypass model separately.
