(Standard Installation)

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.

There is also the option to add aftermarket AVS remotes to your alarm.

What is CAN-Bus?

CAN-Bus (Controlled Area Network Bus) is essentially a communication system. A modern car may have as many as 70 electronic control units (ECUs) and a CAN-Bus system allows all of these different components to talk to each other. CAN-Bus operating systems are now common in new vehicles with many models from the mid 2000s onwards having at least some CAN-Bus control.

Installing traditional after market security into a CAN-Bus equipped car can be problematic. The AVS C-Series CAN-Bus car alarm range make it easy and safe to install an AVS car alarm into a CAN-Bus vehicle. These alarms do not interfere with the car’s operating system and will provide hassle free operation with the benefits of increased security features.


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.

Intrusion alerts

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.

Standard siren

The siren will sound for 30 seconds if any of above intrusions are detected.
