    hall road near mall road place, mintgommery road.
    first think what sort of security system you require. then the make comes, chinese are cheap will start from somewhere around 1600 with remote locking unlocking and anti theft system.
    only keyless entry is for 700 rs
    and a good complete system with good brand will cost you around 2500 min.

    The Place has been mentioned but buy only STEEL MATE brand as they have been tested in many vehicles and meet our daily requirement.
    Buy STEEL MATE 888(Two-Way Visual with pager and Vibrater Alert).Costs around Rs.4000/- and Rs.500/- for installation.Central Locking Kit aroung Rs.600/- - Rs.800/-
    Alerts you via paging and vibrater in 1000meter range easily in obstacles area.If in open area then 3300meter range and if obstacles reduce the range increases.

    My recommendation will be STEEL MATE 888A(Two Way Visual with Pager,Vibrater Alert and Auto Start).Costs Around Rs.5000/- and around Rs.600/- for installation

    STEEL MATE 888 is now hardly available in good quality(Grade B).STEEL MATE 888A can still be fetched in good quality(Grade B) if old stock is searched as most of people prefer 888 model.For Manual Car put a fuse wire over the Starting wire of the system.Only install fuse when you want to start the car i.e when vehicle is in neutral gear and handbrake tightly pulled up in place.
    Try to buy system having car shaped in the LCD not a Foxy.Buy the system having old shaped computer/ECM module.New ones in market have different designed ECM module(IMITATIONS!!!)

    Recommend a place to buy a security system -655860

    The original module is the black colour box with embossed STEEL MATE.Observe the shape.Imitations module is black but shape is different.Dealers try to sell you these imitations which give you trouble afterwards and customers blames the company.I am using this system since 2000 in my Daewoo Racer and have no problem.I have never visited the installer for trouble shooting till now.

    Recommend a place to buy a security system -655861


    This is the shape of the remote which was shipped to Pakistan till 1 year back.Other models in market are imitations even though you can find their remote design on STEEL MATE site but wont find every ascessory same.
    Dealers recommend other brands but their range and quality is very low(Practical experience).

    Salient Features:-
    1.Signal sending range 250 meters and signal recieving range 3300 meters(If many obstacles then around 1000 meters)
    2.Keyless Entry(Unlock and lock)
    3.Auto Start(The starting mechanism has been programmed not to over start as it detects current flowing thru the coil wires.If vehicle doesnt start in first attempt then it gives gap for 20 seconds and tries again.)
    4.Engine Immobilzer
    5.Remote Trunk(Trunk opened by remote.Good feature is you dont want to give your vehicle keys to the servant to remove luggage)
    6.Vehicle Locater via sound & lights
    7.Paging the driver(Knocking on the wind screen near the System Antenna makes the LCD remote Vibrate and page with a telephone insignia informing that some one is calling you to your vehicle.The vehicle does not sound alarm during this procedure)
    8.If vehicle is touched.Lights flashed & alarm is sounded for 5 seconds and person is warned(the LCD remote displayes a Hammer insignia with Vibration and paging).If touched again lights flashed & alarm is sounded for 30 seconds and person is warned(the LCD remote displayes a Knocking Hammer insignia with Vibration and paging).If touched again lights flashed & alarm is sounded until owner disarms it(the LCD remote displayes a Foceful Knocking Hammer insignia with Vibration and paging).When door is opened after disarming by owner in the first two states,the vehicle beeps informing the owner that an intrusion attempt has been made so that he should check vehicle status for damage or sabotage.The Vehicle led security system light flashes continously too denoting that intrusion attempt has been made.(normally the led flashes twice with a 4 second gap).
    9.Every systems range,utilizing FM technology,decreases in areas where heavy duty jammers are installed.Pearl continental Hotels(have to close the door by giving signal near the antenna module) on the wind screen.
    10.LCD Remote showing lock,unlock status,Trunk opened,auto start(smoke from silencer insignia),Sound or mute mode,Battery status,door opened,lights flashing,Telephone insignia
    11.After locking vehicle,Security system ECM runs a check on the system & vehicle status and sends a final signal in 10 seconds confirming vehicle`s armed mode status.
    12.If battery is disconnected,the Security System module stores the last state it was in, and returns to that specific state in 10 seconds after restoration of power.
    13.Locks doors after vehicle is started and brake applied after 10 seconds of starting.Unlocks doors when engine stops running.Doors can be locked and unlocked during driving via remote.

    INTRUCTIONS FOR LONGER FUNCTIONING OF SECURITY SYSTEMS:-
    1.Never allow electrician to spark wires with the vehicle body.
    2.Install the control module in a place where its not easily ascessible.
    3.Install the system from a properly qualified electrician(A electrician who has been installing this model system from 1-3 years in your model vehicle)
    4.Properly double tape the connections
    5.Never drop the remote module on floor or tables from a distance
    6.Avoid water contact with the remote module
    7.Never lock/unlock central door locking vehicle`s locks manually.Use the remote provided

    Shaan, i have the same system, and i simply love it. Although i could never figure out how the engine immobilizer works while the car is in motion. I tried pressing a bunch of buttons on the remote, to no avail .

    in my charade 85 i have installed such kit but it was back in 98. having all of these features but with reduced functionality.
    in remote if you press a key "4" written or may be some symbol twice the car will be immobilized after 30 seconds.
    in case someone robbed your car you can immobilize it by pressing that key twice.
    the gap of 30 seconds will make them running too far from you so that you are safe now and your car is also

    It only works when you arm the vehicle in this model.It doesnt work when car is mobile and cant be activated.

    @whiteangel
    Try Hall Road as if you were in islamabad i know the places

    PS.Forgot to tell you,If you want to install auto trunk then it needs a motor to be installed in the trunk to operate the lock.The electrician knows it.He will do it for you if you want it

    Install SteelMate hand-free car security system, its lot saver and more convenient.

    the car engine can only be started if the transmitter is detected inside the car, and when the driver,s side door is opened with engine running the system will activate the anti-hijack function AUTOMATICALLY when transmitter is not detected. and engine will stop running in 3-4 min.

    Steel Mate cost a little more than the others (35% more) but its more reliable. other reliable systems are INWELLS, PLC. you can also go for some other brands like maxxis, bemaz, giordon. but if you are planing to keep your car for more than two years, Steel Mate is are good choice.

    most of the options are same in normal system, reliability is the main issue. but there are models with enhanced options:

    838 (normal security)
    838G (transmitter is with 5-button)
    838E (PKE remote, smart System)
    838M (open with code, optional)
    838N (Carbon fiber Transmitters)
    888M (two-way system)

    quality vise both are same, depends on your requirement:

    PKE: Arm/Disarm Automatically when transmitter move away from car
    2-way Have to press button for Arm/Disarm (except re-arming)

    PKE: If someone is tempering with the car car will sound and won't start
    2-way in addition to above transmitter will vibrate and beep to alert the owner
