A client from here in Anchorage contacted Perfectionist Auto Sound and Security to have a 2015 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van alarm installed. After meeting with the customer to understand his concerns about the vehicle, we devised a plan to protect it. The client approved our plan, so we scheduled an appointment for the installation.
Vehicle and System Preparation
Each vehicle that enters our work area is treated to a thorough and documented inspection process. We look at the physical condition of the vehicle and note any issues like scratches or dents. We confirm the functionality of major electrical systems and ensure there are no check-engine lights or warnings on the dash before we start work. We connect the vehicle battery to our fully computerized Snap-On battery charger to ensure it will be in perfect condition when the vehicle leaves, even if we have worked on it all day.
Our technicians prepare every security and remote starter system we install on a benchtop jig. We bundle the wires we are going to use in the installation together to make the system neat and tidy once we mount it in the vehicle. We use tesa cloth tape to hold everything together and ensure it will not buzz or rattle once the client starts driving.
Compustar Security System
This security system is based around a Compustar FT-7000AS Remote Starter and Security system control module. Once our technician integrated the controller into the vehicle, we added a DB-ALL integration module to allow the remote starter portion of the system to start the vehicle. We connected to the factory door pin wiring so that the alarm will know if someone opens a door and sound the alarm. The FT-DAS 3-in-1 security system was the final addition to the brain. This sensor provides shock, motion and digital tilt detection to add another barrier of protection to the client’s van.
The client chose the RF-1WG6 remote control package to control his Sprinter van alarm system. Also known as the Prime G6 remote, this remote kit provides up to 1,000 feet of range. The heavy-duty remote is water-resistant, so dropping it in a puddle or snowbank will not be the end of it.
Vehicle Check-Out Process
As important as our check-in process is; our check-out process is even more detailed. The technician who performed the installation will review the system and vehicle to ensure everything functions correctly. Then, a second member of our team reviews the vehicle to ensure it is flawless. This second set of eyes catches even the minutest of oversights.
Just before we pull the vehicle out of our work area, we put a bottle of Perfectionist water in the cup holder and hang one of our VIP hangers on the rear view mirror. We reward our VIP clients with a 10% discount on a future purchase if they provide feedback on Google or Facebook. Our customers deserve only the best!
Sprinter Van Alarm and Remote Starter
We delivered the Sprinter back to the client and showed him how to use the new Compustar system. He was pleased and happy to have his vehicle and its contents protected.
