I'd be interested too. I have a clifford alarm
Just out of curiosity has anybody interfaced with a Clifford Alarm system/Remote Start...i have a Clifford Matrix RS3.5 and i know they make a serial adapter for it to interface to a pc...but im not sure if that is only to install new alarms...or what...
Just let me know...It could be useful to keep logs or something...
I have ideas...
Cant say for 100%, but from what I have heard, Clifford will not allow sales to carry out customers. You must have the tech's install the system. So if there is an interface, I would suspect only they have the ability to access it.

what cliffords states is that in order for the warranty to be valid a "clifford certified tech" has to install it...you can install it yourself it just voids your manufactures warranty with clifford (big deal)
Good to know...I was told locally that they wont supply you with ANY documents as far as installation goes, so it must have been a snow job to allow the shop to do the install themselves.

heres what im talking about, Yea speed.racer they wont provide you with technical documents...however if you have a basic understanding of the technology and know how to do some google searches...you CAN do it yourself, I installed my dads, im looking to buy this new G5 model if i can do cool stuff with it through a serial port on my carpc
I was going to post about this buy setup. The software working for that is Cliffnet. You have to see his setup in person. The pictures don't do that much justice.Originally Posted by SNWTOY
Last time at the Socal meet, he use his tablet PC and control his carPC and his car over Wifi. It is freaking COOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLLLL
Who cares? Why would I have some skum bag from a "certified" shop with a $5/hr kid working on my car who gonna basically drop the brains right next to the gas pedal? OH yea, thats real security. Your better off voided all your warrantee and doing the job yourself if you want anything beyond a mediocor install.in order for the warranty to be valid a "clifford certified tech" has to install it...
As far as the serial port, that would be awesome. BUt i though the Clifford 3.5 had to be interfaced with a bitwriter. But computer works!!! Specially since i also use this system self installed.
