    Can anybody here get the programming directions for the Hornet model 554T/564T? I can only get it programmed by a licensed installer and I want to be able to pick and choose which options I want to have on it....the only shop in town isn't helpful at all.

    Thanks

    go on Directed Electronics website and they should have the installation manual available and owners manual. What exactly is that? Remote Start/Keyless/Security??

    It's a remote start/alarm/with the 2way key fob...if you're close enough the key fob will alert you to somebody messing with it. However, it went off one time and ran for about three hours before I knew the alarm had been activated. I think the sensor is too sensitive, plus it should cut off after a certain amount of time...or so I would think. Also, per the owner instructions there is a certain button that you push to remote start, however after I got it programmed this button wasn't used to remote start it. Little things like that make me want to the programming instructions, so I can hopefully use certain features but turn certain features off as well.

    Directed's website has owners guides for it but not an installation guide.

    I will search around at work for an install manual but I doubt that I have one. But I will check and let you know.

    I have access to ALL the DEI manuals. Let me know exactly what you need and I can send it to you. One thing to keep in mind is that if whoever installed your system used a "bitwriter" to program it then only a bitwriter can access the programming. A bitwriter is a small computer type tool that plugs into the brain of the security system and allows you to program the features you want without having to hold the valet and wait for a specified number of light flashes.


    Let me know what you need and I will help.
