Responder HD features Viper's most advanced color remote, operating a one-mile range, 2-Way security and remote start system with an upgraded user interface, mini-USB charging port and patented menu wheel. No effort has been spared by the Viper development team to create the ultimate color keychain remote control, operating Viper's top-of-the-line, one-mile range 2-Way vehicle security and remote start system.

The result is Viper Responder HD, winner of the coveted CES 2009 Innovations Award. Some of the milestones achieved by our team include:

  • Viper's first one-mile range color remote, using 900 MHz Spread Spectrum Technology (SST)
  • A brand new user interface, for the first time utilizing the patented Menu Wheel
  • New custom Viper animations, to confirm user commands and illustrate system events, on a 128 x 128 pixel Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) high contrast panel, with 262K and 65K full colors, and a wide 160° viewing angle, employing an anti-glare polarizer for enhanced daylight visibility
  • The OLED display panel on the Viper Responder HD color remote is 20% larger than previous LCD panels on a keychain remote

Viper has created a sophisticated and complex remote control that is more intuitive than competing security products. It walks the new user through the system operation on-screen while delivering tons of real-time information for the power user. Viper completely re-thought the manual layouts so users can play with the remote, and if something unexpected occurs or attracts their interest, they can easily find a quick and simple explanation with references to as much detail as they want.

Built-in Info Center: the Responder HD status screen has an information center built into it! The Info Center displays the remote start run-time remaining before the engine shuts off, as well as the vehicle interior temperature, so you know if it has warmed up or cooled off enough to make your drive comfortable. It also displays the Countdown and Parking Meter timers when running, and the Parking meter timer emits warnings at 15 minutes, 5 minutes and at expiration so you can make sure to feed the meter. Also, you can stop, start or clear these timers any time in the Status Screen using the Menu Wheel. These 4 bits of information can be displayed in the Info Center by pressing the menu wheel while the Status screen is active to toggle and show each one.

Two Car operation: when users decide to change to a paired 2nd vehicle, Responder HD will automatically check the vehicle's availability, and if the desired car is not available it will let you know. If the vehicle is available, it will automatically update the information displayed on the status screen so you know if it needs to be disarmed, or if the engine is running.

Security system Sensor Status in real-time: when arming with a security zone active, Responder HD will receive a report that will identify by name the active zone and display a special icon in the Status Screen. The report will identify all zones that are active (up to 7) by name during the report output.

NEW FEATURE: For the first time, Responder HD reports any sensors that have been bypassed by the Nuisance Prevention Circuitry (NPC™) feature when arming and have a special Sensor Status icon that is displayed in the Status Screen. Any time there is a change of status in the sensors (NPC or a bypassed zone resets,) Responder HD will receive a message from the system and the All Zones OK icon will be displayed.

Sensor Bypass: users can bypass sensors by selecting the level and sensors they wish to bypass. Responder HD will identify the bypassed sensors on-screen and by name so the user knows exactly the level of security they have chosen. After bypassing sensors, the Sensor Status icon will be updated so the user can easily see those sensors are bypassed each time the Status Screen is displayed.

Remote start Fault and Not Available reporting: if the user attempts to operate a security or remote start feature that is not available, Responder HD will identify the fault so it can be quickly resolved.

The intended use and user value of Viper Responder HD constitute nothing less than a new higher level of connection between drivers and their vehicles. With an MSRP of $799, Responder HD is a new level of luxury in the world of vehicle security and convenience. From up to one mile distance from their vehicle, users can stay in constant contact using an advanced and elegant, full-color interface device: their Responder HD keychain remote.

Features and Specifications

Remote Confirmation (?)2-Way remotes let you stay in touch with your vehicle, confirming your commands (such as remote start, or arming your security system) either with an LCD screen on the remote, or using LED lights. Some 2-Way remotes also act as a security pager, letting you know your siren has been triggered, even if you are too far away to hear it. Color OLED Screen
Remotes (?)The number and type of remotes that come with the system. 1 Responder HD Color 2-Way and 1 5-Button 1-Way
Range (?)Viper systems use Radio Frequency (RF) technologies to communicate with your vehicle, and these technologies each have a typical operating range. Range varies by the technology used, but also because of environmental factors such as interference from other RF sources. Currently Viper systems with the longest range use Spread Spectrum Technology (SST) with range up to 1 mile. Up to 1 Mile
Security (?)Approximately 1.2 million vehicles are stolen in the U.S. every year and $1 billion worth of contents are stolen out of vehicles - so millions of vehicle owners have reached out to Viper security systems as a powerful deterrent against thieves and vandals.
Remote Start (?)Remote Start allows you to start your engine by remote control, allowing your vehicle's climate control system to warm up or cool down the cabin before you get in. Range is important with remote start (your vehicle might be parked down the street, or at the far end of a parking lot) and 2-Way remote start systems are preferred (because they confirm that your vehicle has started.)
Keyless Entry (?)Unlock your vehicle's doors with the push of a button on your keychain remote.
Trunk Pop (?)Viper systems with Trunk Pop can open your power trunk with the push of a button.
SmartStart Compatible (?)A Viper SmartStart module can be added to this system to make your vehicle SmartStart ready.
Encryption (?)Clone-safe, anti-Code Grabbing technology comes standard on every Viper system. SuperCode™
Domelight Supervision (?)A great safety feature: illuminates your vehicle's dome light for 30 seconds when you disarm your security system or unlock the doors of your remote start system.
Stinger DoubleGuard Shock Sensor (?)Each Viper security system comes standard with the dual stage Stinger DoubleGuard shock sensor, which detects blows or impacts to the vehicle and can discriminate light impacts from heavy ones.
Neo Revenger 6-Tone Siren (?)Light impacts result in WarnAway chirps from the Neo Revenger Siren, while heavier blows result in the full 120 dB 6-Tone sequence, designed to frighten away the would-be thief and call attention to the intrusion attempt.
Failsafe Starter Kill (?)Keep your car where you parked it with the Failsafe Starter Kill, an immobilizer designed to prevent hot-wiring.
Anti-Carjacking (VRS) (?)VRS is a user-operated anti-carjacking system. Once activated, if your vehicle is carjacked, 30 seconds later the siren will start screaming for help and the lights will flash. When the carjacker pulls over and turns off the ignition, the starter kill will activate, which should prompt the carjacker to then abandon your vehicle for eventual recovery.
Guaranteed Protection Plan (GPP) (?)GPP refunds your comprehensive insurance deductible up to $2,500 if your car is stolen within the first year after Viper is installed; $5,000 if it also has Viper Window Film!
# of Auxiliary Channels (?)Auxiliary channels are electrical outputs controlled by your keychain remote, which your installer can interface with systems in your car to allow you to operate them by remote control. Additional parts or labor will be required. 4

    One of the best out there! Long range, so many options and addons, and reliability! For those who are having issues remote starting by accident, you can get it programmed to have to press 2 or 3 times, or even program the keylock where you can to press certain buttons in sequence in order to "unlock" the buttons, or simply just get a nice case for the keyfob!

  • Oklahoma


    I really like the alarm. It works well and has a long range. The 2way is nice so I can be notified if the alarm is set even if I can't hear it. I like the ability to be able to add extra features like a tilt sensor, glass break sensor, back-up batteries, extra siren and the ability to roll my windows down with the AUX button. If anyone is having problems accidently starting the vehicle, I strongly suggest taking advantage of the button lock feature. It will solve the problem.

  • Nef- Queens, NY


    Great alarm, lots of nice features, great range coverage. the only Con remote is too sensitive starter the car plenty of times without knowing. Remote starter feature should be different press twice,hold botton etc. this is kind of annoying, unlocking or starting your car without knowing.

  • jose-san antonio, TEXAS


    I've had this set up a few years now and never placed a review until now. The reason being, I forgot how awesome this thing is. Parking is a pain at my apts. And a couple months ago I had to park about 1/4 mile from my town home. Remote went off and I sprinted outside in my boxers, 40 cal in hand. If it wasn't for this alarm he would've got away. Besides having to by a new windshield because the two holes I put threw it and time in court, this alarm saved me a lot more.

  • Ann- Long Island, NY


    my truck got broken into twice, after i research for alarm systems, found out that this one is the best and it is. i would have never though that the thief would have tried again for a 3 time and i sure did catch him in front my house, red handed. my alarm on the truck and the remote went off at the same time. i was able to see the person, get their license plates # and report to the police. i also had some problems with the installers, i called viper customer service and they handled that situation very well. I'M A VERY PLEASE CUSTOMER.

  • Dagmar de Ruiter, Netherlands


    System works great! I don't want any other alarm. There is only one big con: The buttons of the two way remote contol are very crappy. I have the key pad lock enabled otherwise my car will open, close and start on every moment. Now it only drive's me crazy with the "Button lock on" sound everytime you bend over or squeez it accidently in your pocket.

  • Daniel-Austin, Tx


    Had this alarm installed in my Camaro z28 and could not be happier, my car has had two other alarms in the past and this is by far the best yet! No complaints, works great!

  • Gio - Vancouver, BC


    This alarm has been amazing! it works from inside my 4th floor condo while my car is parked on p2. To the people complaining about pushing the buttons by mistake you should turn on the key lock.

  • Chris, north Carolina


    Love this remote start the LCD screen is great and the battery stays charged forever love this system

  • Dan - Edmond, OK


    Alarm does what it's supposed to, and that's great. I was surprised to find how unprotected the buttons are. My pocket never pressed the buttons on the factory remote, but have I left the store or the gym multiple times to find my truck running in the parking lot. I've turned on the button lock, but still think the design could be better. The companion remote doesn't seem to have a lock, and I found my truck running again in the parking lot at work this morning.

  • Chicago, IL


    Definitely the best overall securiyt with remote start system I have ever used. My application on an Audi can be somewhat inconcsistent at times. For example, it doesn't always arm or disarm on the first attempt but 9 out of 10 times it works fine. Also, the buttons easily get pressed when in a pocket or purse. My wife has unlocked the car many times accidently while in her purse. Thanks to the super long range of the system :) Overall, awesome system.

  • Lo-Toronto, Canada


    Great system, I love it for my Jeep GC.

  • Dave C. - Fairview Heights, IL


    WOW!! Go Ahead! Try to steal my XA! I DARE YOU! BEST ALARM SYSTEM MADE TO DATE!I bought the 5902V, an Extra Siren, a Piezo Siren, (Installed in the dash through the vent to make your ears bleed), the Dual Stage Radar(Proximity) Sensor, and the Window Automation System. I skipped the Tilt and Window Shatter Sensors because the proximity Sensor should activate in either case. I got All parts and Installation for under $900. Wiring is ran in the car to Xtra Batteries in Trunk Area not under the hood.

  • jake church hill tn


    i got this alarm i had the 5901 i had to have the color remote works great no problems. also have every add on you can think of the range for remote start is great from the remote its in a 2005 lincoln navigator

  • Martin- Los Angeles, CA


    The color remote is huge and difficult to carry around. Otherthan that the product is very reliable.

  • Anthony - Center Moriches, NY


    Just had this unit installed in my car. the smartstart is unbelieveable. i was home the car was 50 miles away and i was able to unlock and lock the car. the smartstart takes a little time to recieve the signal but its not too bad. great product i recommend it!

  • Ken - Calgary, Alberta, Canada


    Loved the graphics, easy to use and money well spent. I researched the product first then purchased the system thru e-Bay and had it shipped to Canada which nobody had this product yet. Installed on Toyota Highlander Hybrid works awesome.

  • Houston Tx


    Its a good product but the only thing i don't like is when i put the remote in my pocket it opens my trunk and starts my car

  • Derek - Rochester, MN


    I put this in myself, some guy tried to steal 4000 dollars worth of my audio equipment while I was at work on black friday, taking a pee. Next thing I know it said my door was open, so I ran out there as fast as I could, about 1/3 mile away, and confronted the guy, scared the crap out of him. This thing is worth every penny, it will save you if someone breaks in to steal your stuff, plus no more cold morning to worry about. Made my car more fun and safer, thanks Viper!!

  • mzgonc st. louis, mo


    Remotes are a pain, can't put it in your pocket or in your gf purse unless you like leaving your car unlocked or starting it by remote all the time without knowing it. Buttons on the remote are unshielded and sooooo easily pressed by accident thus unlocking and / or starting it.

  • JP - Florida


    Awesome system! I also have the Smart Start. Works amazing! Would definitely buy again.

  • Goobii - Singapore Stream Owners Group


    Branding plays a part. I upgraded my alarm from a lousy korea brand zenesis ZN502R, which screw up everything from unable to start to window struck and cannot wind up... Once I changed to viper 5902, everything else changed. It is more easy to understand what is going on. It could activate remote start even if car is LOCK or UNLOCK. It tell you in REAL time how long the remote start had been started and how long later will it CUT off. My favourite, the TEMP reading which tells you how warm or cold the car interior before thinking about remote start to cool down the car. Range is good, 2blocks aways blocked by 2 others tall HDB , I could still remote start and before I reach and drive off the car. It had already warmed up. Additional gadgets: Viper flashing decal, tilt sensor, sunroof open/close , window up/down, all could be installed without any problem. Mine with PUSH-START button, so it makes it easy by carrying just the impressive car remote. Try it... Use it... Love it...

  • abdulrahman-alkhateeb commercail broker-china

  • chris-miami,fla

  • loacated in Northern Ontario where it is cold


    Best remote ever. Installed in a 2011 Hyundai Sonata with smartkey feature with XK09 bypass, installer said it was the easiest install ever.

  • mark washington, tulsa, ok


    My current car alarm put on by BIG DOGGS CAR AUDIO in Tulsa, Oklahoma is worthless when compared to the viper. I plan to buy the viper with my new 2011 vehicle purchase. My car alarm made by OMEGA CAR ALARM is being un-authorized breached by another person. I have two of the OMEGA CAR ALARM installed on each of my vehicles and each time someone has gained un-authorized access to alarm car. 1-918-346-6774.

  • alex lett- Yulee, FL


    this is one great security system ever

  • john gomez san antonio texas riddin 24z

  • Chris, Arizona


    I got this model installed a few weeks ago and I very much appreciate it's features and enjoy it's capabilities. It gives me a high sense of security which greatly lowers my worry over my vehicle. The remote start is fabulous.

  • imran ashraf united kingdom


    Awesome build quality very happy with mine , nice color screen easy to understand icons , overall best buy for my car thanks directed you done a excellent job keep it up

  • San Diego CA


    I have a mr-2 and a 4runner. They both had 791xv's. hated having to use 2 different remotes. Finally upgraded them to 5902's. Love them.

  • lamont Aurora,Co


    This is the best alarm system I have ever owned. I have $1280 dollars into the system total. I got the alarm, glass,tilt,window,prox sensor,override, backup battery, viper illuminicient for $680 off ebay. Cartoys I been using last 12 yrs did install $660. If install is to high it was worth it. I figured it out completely in like the total of an hr. The remote control is the coolest thus far. Roll windows up and down, turn off sensors, The garage door opening would cause warn away to chirp 2x. I silence the prox sensor at the car when at home and it beeps the remote. The viper ill looks cool at night I have 2 lights flashing opposite each other. Any vehicle I plan on keeping will have one of these. The pit stop is cool leave the car running and run into the store. The remote stays charged for months I believe. I charged it at christmas and it was still charged feb12 at install. I hope I help some one make a informed decision on buying this product. It is simply awesome and worth every penny. Not to mention the feeling of security that your car is gonna be alright no matter where you may be. If you are a gadgets person this will impress. Buy it you wont be disappointed.

  • queens, new york


    i had the viper 791 responder when it first came out, but this thing the viper 5902 with color screen display is by far the best system that dei has ever put out.Really really amazing system i am very pleased.

  • AP - Lawrence, KS


    Great Product, Only thing is the color remote is kind of large. Other then that, great features.

  • Chad-Seattle, WA


    great alarm, ive installed for 6yrs and this is by far the best all-around alarm I have come across. anyone can operate.

  • Nick R. Allentown, PA


    Worth EVERY penny....

  • FX - Edmonton, Canada


    Good but could be better. Works very well with BMW push-button ignition. High end vehicles required additional modules. Best if 2-way remote has selectable theme for truck or SUV. Best system $ can buy.

  • Rigoberto Ceballos


    As of now I can't complain about this product, my car on the other hand is a whole different story. The 5902V is awesome just make sure you have someone fully qualified installing it.

  • james@ creative car audio joplin mo


    Just installed one today. Best system I have ever used.

  • Parks - Lacey, WA


    Excellent system with great range! No more remembering 32 different keypress combinations to get the function I need, just scroll down and hit a button! Makes controlling my windows, sound system and fog lights so much simpler!
