To be honest Viper, Python and Hornet are pretty much the same except for pricing and some little extra options that can usually be interchanged between them all. They are all made by the same company (DEI) so it's like a GM of alarm systems.

Note: This is only ONE level of security. You might want to look into a column lock and if it's really bad possibly shaving some locks. I've become a fast window swapper since the last 2 incidents I suffered years ago.

Correct.

Anything made by DEI is worthy of praise. 2 way paging system by Viper
has been my favorite. I've had them since 2000 and they last too.

Hidden battery kill switch is also a good idea. They have remote location one's.
There's also a fuel toggle to the fuel pump relay you can do. That should also be hidden.

There are also good suggestions here:

I will suggest getting some black paper and covering the VIN plate in your windshield. When my SS was stolen, the thief apparently had a set of keys (made from the VIN through the windshield) and just started it up and drove it away. I hadn't installed an alarm yet, of course, since crime in that neighborhood was to my knowledge very low.

Just sayin'; it's an extremely cheap thing to do and can only help.

Its depends on you that how much you can pay and how much security you want.But i think the viper is best for your vehicle security.And i am also using that for my car.And its also have an affordable price that you can easily pay.
