Pandora vs Viper: which car alarm system is better?

12.09.2016

We’ve asked ourselves a question: are there any car alarm systems in USA or Europe which are at least as much featured as Pandora, or even more? And what about the prices?

We’ve performed a research and found out that one of the most popular car alarm system brand outside Russia is Viper. And we should say that it is obvious after performing Pandora and Viper compare that Russian systems are far more featured and affordable.

At first, Pandora remote controllers are more informative and convenient (and more stylish), and it is easy to verify that:

Then, none of Viper systems has an integrated immobilizer with tags. Pandora increases a security level using an immobilizer relay which cuts of an engine in case of unauthorized access. You can drive a car only after Pandora detects a tag in a radio zone.

Pandora immobilizer tags easily fit in wallets or pockets:

Also Pandora uses a very small main unit – it is not much bigger than an immobilizer tag (you can see an immobilizer tag size at the photo above). You can hide a small main unit anywhere in a car, and a thief has practically no chances to find and remove it.

The most featured system Pandora DXL 5000 NEW has no Viper analogs: this system has remote start, turbo timer, included GSM and GPS, immobilizer with tags, shock/tilt/motion sensor, one LCD two-way and one one-way controllers, 2xCAN interface, 868 MHz radio frequency, 16 security zones, etc.  

A lot of modern Pandora systems feature GSM and still cost pretty affordable for every car owner, but Viper analogs with GSM cost 499$ or more. Pandora allows you to control your car via your smartphone using free app Pandora for iOS and Android, and it is totally free – you pay only according to your mobile phone provider fees. Viper offers only 60 day free trial, and there is no demo version of its app (Pandora app has a demo version, so everyone can log in and try the app before buying the system).

We hope that our Pandora vs Viper compare will help you to make a correct choice and protect your car properly.

*We don’t know exactly what is a “SuperCode” and what frequency and encryption keys does it use, because there is no information about it on Viper website.
