Wel come to the world of

high- technology ve hi cle se cu rity and con ven ience  


ongratulations on the purchase of your Concept 300, and thank you for choosing

Clifford Electronics World-Class Auto Security for your vehicle security needs!

Clifford has long been recognised as the world’s leading manufacturer of

high-technology vehicle security systems and accessories. Buying Clifford products has

always meant buying the best, and that commitment to technological innovation,

reliability and quality is clearly evident in the Thatcham-evaluated Concept 300.

Your Concept 300 is loaded with protective features and convenience benefits,

including our ACG 2™ (Anti-CodeGrabbing) that fights off thieves with

code-grabbers (a device similar to those that capture and “clone” cellular phones).

Clifford’s unique PlainView 2 Coded Valet Switch ensures that no thief can turn off

your Concept 300 like they can with other car alarms. The Smart Self-Powered

Medallion Siren with Digital ComLink will detect any theft-related wire tampering

and continue to sound even if the thief were to cut all the wires! Our new optional

CliffNet Wizard™ PC interface lets you test and set all the user-selectable features

on your computer screen. Our latest innovation, the optional Wireless FuelGuard

Module, makes theft by even the most skilled car thief virtually impossible since there

are no wires for the thief to trace! Plus there’s remote controlled valet mode, dual-point

immobilisation, an electronic interlock to prevent accidental activation of the optional

remote boot release, smart automatic locking/unlocking if you ever need to “panic”

the system, full-time programming access, and much, much more. Yet despite all the 

sophistication, you will find that your Concept 300 is amazingly easy to use: never

more difficult than a few presses of a button.

NOTE: Your sys tem MUST be in stalled by an Author ised Clif ford Dealer in
ac cor dance with the in struc tions we sup ply them. The sys tem is in tended for
auto mo biles with a 12- volt bat tery and petrol- or diesel- powered en gines.

NOTE: The In stal la tion Cer tifi cate docu ment must be com pleted by your
in staller at the Author ised Clif ford Dealer. Other than the re mote con trols,
this sys tem has no user- serviceable parts. Your Author ised Clif ford Dealer
can cor rect any sys tem wir ing prob lems and, if ever needed, can re turn any
mal func tion ing com po nent to Clif ford Elec tron ics for re pair/re place ment
un der the terms printed on the sup plied war ranty card. Any al tera tions or
ad di tions would auto mati cally in vali date the war ranty, an ti theft guar an tee
(if ap pli ca ble) and in vali date the In stal la tion Cer tifi cate.

Main te nance

Your Concept 300 requires no maintenance except for replacement of remote control

batteries when they reach the end of their useful life; see the 

Automatic low battery



Remote control battery replacement

 sections on page 8. This product, like any

electrical device in your vehicle, requires that your vehicle battery be in proper working

order and fully charged. To ensure proper operation, periodically have your vehicle

battery “load-checked” at any local garage/mechanic and ask them to verify that the

charging system (alternator, etc.) is working properly. Also make sure the battery cables

and connections are tight and free from corrosion.



background image

Your re mote con trols

The 4-button remote controls of your Concept 300 are ultra-sophisticated miniature

radio transmitters each powered by a tiny 3-volt lithium battery. A weak remote control

battery will reduce range (the system will warn you if the battery in your remote is

nearing the end of its useful life, see 

Automatic remote control low battery warning

 on page

8 for details). Electrical/radio frequency interference, buildings and other obstructions,

weather conditions and even sunspots can interrupt the signal from your remote to the

system. If this happens, repeatedly press the remote control button several times until

the system responds (this works better than holding the button down). The remote

controls are the keys to your system. But these remotes are much more secure than car

keys because each incorporates Clifford’s ACG 2™ (Anti-CodeGrabbing 2™) technology 

with trillions of digital codes for the ultimate protection. You will use your Concept 300

remote control to arm and disarm the system, lock and unlock the doors,

activate/deactivate the panic feature, enable/exit valet mode and command options such 

as a remote boot release, timed headlight activation, automatic closure of the power

windows, electric garage door interface and even remote starting of the engine and

heater or air conditioner, among other options.

TIP: If you press the top of the remote to your chin, you can increase the range
since your body acts as a large radio antenna (this is the same principle as a
station coming in more clearly when you touch the TV or radio antenna).

   How to use your re mote con trols  

Each of your two remote controls can command several different functions and options.




You will hear

 two chirps

 and the indicator lights will flash twice.

The dashboard LED will flash repeatedly and your vehicle’s power 

locks will automatically lock.




One chirp

 and one indicator light flash confirms disarming. In

addition, the power locks will automatically unlock, the LED will

turn off and the interior lights will turn on and stay on for 30

seconds or until you start the engine, whichever occurs first.



Hold the 

 button 3 seconds. The indicator lights will flash

repeatedly and the siren will blare until you press the 


again to turn it off. If the ignition is on (indicating you are in the

car), the doors will automatically lock to prevent an assailant from 

entering (note: some vehicles are unable to lock the doors whilst

the ignition is on). If the ignition is off, the doors will unlock,

allowing you to enter immediately without fumbling with your keys.



If you have the remote boot release option, pressing the 

button whilst the system is disarmed will release the boot latch (see

Smart boot release option 

on page 9 for more information). If you do 

not have the boot release option, you may assign this button to

activate one of the other functions noted in column 4 of the 

Ta ble 

of User- Selectable Fea tures

 on page 19, or it can be programmed

into a Clifford ACG 2 electric garage door/entry gate opener

interface or a Concept 100, 300, 400 or 600 on your other car.



background image



If you have the remote timed headlight activation option, pressing 


 button will turn on the headlights for any duration you

wish between one second and 4 minutes (the factory setting is 10

seconds; see 




on pages 18-19). If you do not

have this option, you may assign this button to activate one of the 

other functions noted in column 4 of the 

Ta ble of User- Selectable

Fea tures

 on page 19, or it can be programmed into a Clifford ACG

2 electric garage door/entry gate opener interface or a Concept

100, 300, 400 or 600 on your other vehicle.



 button is factory-set to activate the IntelliStart 4* remote

engine starting accessory. If you do not have this option, you may

assign this button to activate one of the other functions noted in

column 4 of the 

Ta ble of User- Selectable Fea tures

 on page 19, or it

can be programmed into a Clifford ACG 2 electric garage

door/entry gate opener interface or a Concept 100, 300, 400 or

600 on your other vehicle.



By simultaneously pressing both the 

 button and the 

button, you can arm or disarm with all the indications previously

noted except the chirp acknowledgments. Silent arming and

disarming is handy when parking late at night in a quiet

residential area. 



By simultaneously pressing both the 




button, you can enable or exit your Concept 300’s valet mode (see 

page 11 for details on valet mode). Two indicator light flashes

confirm remote enabled valet mode entry, a single flash confirms

valet mode exit. If you prefer, you may turn off remote controlled

valet mode as noted in the 

User-selectable features

 section on pages 

18-19 so that the system cannot be placed in valet mode via the

remote control. 



If you have the SmartWindows 4 option, simultaneously pressing

both the 


 button will fully open the power windows

if the system is disarmed. If the system is in its armed state when

you press this button combination, SmartWindows 4 will vent the 

windows slightly for ventilation on hot days. Please note that a

SmartWindows 4 module will control two power windows,

additional modules may be added to control additional windows.

SmartWindows 4 is not compatible with some vehicles.



Pressing buttons 




 within 10 seconds of arming will

override your Concept 300 system’s Proximity Sensor III.

Confirmation of this remote controlled sensor override is

acknowledged with 4 flashes of the indicator lights (see 

Re mote

con trolled over ride of the Prox im ity Sen sor III

 on page 13).

  ACG 2™ (Anti- CodeGrabbing 2™)  

ACG 2 protects you and your automobile from the most effective and onerous car

stealing device ever used by car thieves — a code-grabber. Code-grabbers literally record, 

from hundreds of feet away, the code sent by your car alarm remote control

(code-grabbers are very similar to, but simpler than, cellphone “cloning” devices). The

thief then simply plays back the code when you’re gone, instantly disarming the alarm

and unlocking the doors. It’s like leaving your keys and remote on the bonnet. 

Many alarms can be defeated that easily, and some of the latest “smart” code-grabbers

can even decipher the code hopping/jumping sequence used by other car alarm


In contrast, Clifford Concept Series systems use complex digital signal processing and

unbreachable code encryption to randomly change the digital code every time you use

the remote control. Your remotes will 


 transmit the same code twice, and the

control unit will 


 accept the same code twice.

Thus the code recorded and played back by the thief’s code-grabber — even the latest

generation smart code-grabbers — will 


 be accepted by your Concept 300 system.

  Add ing new re mote con trols  

For other drivers of the vehicle in your family, you can purchase additional remote

controls from any Clifford Dealer (or ring our UK Customer Service Department on

0800 929949 or 0181 646 8440) and program them into your Concept 300 system


Each Concept 300 will respond to as many as four Concept 100, 300, 400, 600 type

remote controls.

NOTE: Your Concept 300 will re spond only to Concept 100, 300, 400 and 600
type ACG 2 re mote con trols. Older Clif ford ACG and non- ACG re mote
con trols are not com pati ble with the Concept 300.

To add a new remote control to the system, use the 

Add new remote

 feature (column 1,

row 1) of the 

User-selectable features

 on pages 18-19.

You may also assign unused buttons and/or button combinations from the remote

controls of other Concept 100, 300, 400 and 600 systems to your Concept 300 as noted

in column 4 of the 

User-selectable features

 on pages 18-19. 

  How to erase the codes of lost or sto len re mote con trols  

If one of your remotes is ever lost or stolen, you can erase it from the memory to make

sure that the missing remote control can never again be used to disarm your system. 

To do so, you will use the 

Clear All Remotes

 feature noted on the 

Table of User-Selectable


s (feature column 2, row 6) on page 19. This 

Clear All Remotes

 feature will erase

all remote controls from the Concept 300 memory. Then simply reprogram each

remaining and/or replacement remote control as noted in the 

Adding new remote controls

section above.

  Auto matic re mote con trol low- battery warn ing  

If your remote control battery is very low, you will hear an unusually low-pitched chirp

whenever you remotely disarm rather than the chirp that you normally hear. Your

Concept 300 system will continue to sound this low-pitched chirp warning every time

you disarm until you replace the battery.

Since this is a warning indication, you will hear this low-battery warning even if you use



 button combination silent disarming feature (see page 6 & 7).

  Re mote con trol bat tery re place ment  

Replacement of a remote control battery is simple, but any Authorised Clifford Dealer

will be happy to do it for you without cost provided that you buy the replacement battery 

at their shop (it’s a good idea to keep a spare of each battery type in your glove box just

in case).
1. Insert a small, thin screwdriver blade in the slot near the keyring opening (you may

leave the keyring in place) and turn it to separate the two halves.

2. Remove the old battery noting the + and – indications and replace it with the new one.

3. Put the enclosure back together by first aligning the top of the remote, then snapping

the case back together at the bottom.

Two- Point In ter nal AutoIm mo bi li sa tion

Whilst armed, your Concept 300 assures your vehicle is immobilised by automatically

locking out both the ignition and starter. The system’s dual internal immobilisation

circuits ensure that a thief will not be able to start your vehicle’s engine even if he had a

duplicate of your car key. What’s more, even if he were to find the system control unit

and tear it out of your vehicle, he still would be unable to start your car’s engine!

However, unlike AutoArming described on page 10, AutoImmobilisation occurs 30

seconds after you turn off the ignition regardless of whether you open or close any doors.

What’s more, disabling the AutoArming feature has no effect on AutoImmobilisation.

When you remotely disarm your Concept 300 system, the AutoImmobilisation circuits

automatically disengage. You then have 30 seconds to start the engine (or turn the

ignition switch to its “ON” position). If more than 30 seconds pass, the immobiliser will

automatically reactivate. This will be visually indicated by the LED repeatedly flashing,

but at a slower rate than that of the normal rapid “armed” indication flash rate.

To dis arm the Auto Im mo bi liser, use the re mote con trol to arm and then
disarm the system, or turn on the ignition and press button 

 on the remote 


  Op tional Wire less Fu el Guard Mod ule™  

Our ingenious optional Wireless FuelGuard Module makes your vehicle undrivable by

interrupting the fuel delivery system whilst the system is armed, and it can’t be defeated

even by the most sophisticated thief. 

Why not? Because this unique Clifford innovation unfailingly provides reliable fuel pump 

obstruction without any wires connecting it to the system control unit. That means that

a thief would not be able to find the Wireless FuelGuard Module even if he tried locating 

and tracing the system wires, since there are no wires for him to trace! Operation is

completely automatic and user-transparent.

If you have had the optional Wireless FuelGuard Module installed, make
sure to keep the rec ord your Clif ford in staller pro vides as to the Wireless
FuelGuard Module lo ca tion in case your ve hi cle needs fu ture serv ic ing.

  En gine Re start Fea ture  

Thirty seconds 


 shutting down the engine, the Two- Point AutoImmobilisation

electronics (and the Wireless FuelGuard Module, if you have this option) will engage,

preventing engine starting. To restart the engine, simply do the following:
1. Turn your ignition switch to the “ON” position.

2. Press button 

 on the remote control. This will disengage the immobilisation.

3. You may now start the engine.

Smart boot re lease op tion   

If the optional remote boot release feature was installed, you may use the 

 button on

the remote control to release the boot latch. Your system has a built-in electronic interlock to 

prevent unintentional activation of the remote boot release when you drive, or when the

system is armed. This interlock requires installer programming, so if you have remote

boot release, you may want to verify that it will NOT activate whilst the system is armed.

False Alarm Pre ven tion & FACT™

With Clifford’s patented FACT (False Alarm Control and Test) feature, you’ll never

experience repeated false alarms. If the siren sounds, DO NOT remotely disarm the

system; allow it to run for the full 30-second siren duration.

Before sounding the siren a second time, your Concept 300 system will automatically

check for another activated sensor or trigger to verify that an intrusion is in progress.

Should the siren sound again, you will know for sure that someone is tampering with

your vehicle. (If you wish, you may turn off FACT, see 

User-selectable features

 on pages


AutoLock and Aut oUn Lock

Please note: The AutoLock and AutoUnLock features are not available on
some vehicles, such as Volkswagen and Audi.

For safety, the system will automatically lock your vehicle’s power door locks the instant

you turn on the ignition switch (e.g., when starting the engine). When you turn the

ignition switch off (e.g., when shutting down the engine), the AutoUnLock feature will

automatically unlock the doors. To suit your preferences, you may turn on or off 

either or 


 the AutoLock and/or AutoUnLock features (see 

User-selectable features

 on pages



If this AutoArming feature is enabled and you forget to arm your Concept 300 with its

remote control, the system will automatically arm itself 30 seconds after the vehicle

doors are closed and the interior light(s) have turned off.

For your convenience, if you re-open any door(s) within the 30-second countdown,

AutoArming restarts the 30-second delay from the beginning after all doors are closed.

Concept 300 has these additional AutoArming features:


AutoArming enable/disable:

If you prefer, you may deactivate or reactivate the

AutoArming feature. See 

User-selectable features

 on pages 18-19.


Visual acknowledgment:

Five seconds after you shut off the engine,exit the vehicle,

close all the doors and the interior light has turned off, the indicator lights will flash

twice to confirm the AutoArming countdown is progressing; 25 seconds later, the

system will AutoArm.


Lock upon AutoArming:

To ensure you can’t accidentally lock your keys inside the

car, the system is factory-set 


 to lock the doors upon AutoArming. To change this

setting, see 

User-selectable features

 on pages 18-19. 


Instant AutoArming bypass:

Prevents AutoArming when fuelling the vehicle and at

other times when you wish to temporarily bypass the AutoArming feature. To activate

the Instant AutoArming Bypass, rapidly turn the ignition switch to “ON” then “OFF.”

You will hear a single siren chirp to confirm that the system will not AutoArm. Your

Concept 300 system will automatically revert to its normal operating mode when you

next start the engine.

Plain View 2™ Coded Valet Mode

All car alarms have a valet mode that essentially turns off the security features. This

mode is also used to turn off the alarm if the system is not responding to the remote

control. However, thieves can disable other alarm brands in seconds by simply hotwiring

the ignition and flicking the alarm’s easy-to-find 


 valet switch.

In contrast, your Concept 300 system has safeguards that ensure a thief cannot enable the

valet mode as a way of “turning off” your system. How? To enable valet mode, the driver must

first enter the secret valet code on the PlainView 2 switch. When the system is in valet

mode, it overrides the AutoArming feature (see page 10) and all other security features. At 

various times, you will need to switch the system off. For instance, when refuelling or

washing your car.

Your sys tem’s factory -set valet code is noted on the back cover of

this man ual.

NOTE: If you tem po rar ily lose the use of your re mote con trols, you can dis arm
the sys tem by ena bling valet mode.

Defi ni tions



A digit is defined as any number from 0 to 9, inclusive.


Valet code:

A valet code may be 1 to 4 digits in length, but the first digit may not be a zero:

A 1-digit code = any number between 1-9

A 2-digit code = any number between 10-99

A 3-digit code = any number between 100-999

  A 4-digit code = any number between 1000-9999


PlainView 2 switch:

A two-button switch mounted on the dashboard or console. One 

of the buttons is marked with a raised 

, the other is unmarked. Each time you drive

your car, you must enter your secret valet code via the SmartPowerUp 22 switch.


Entering a digit:

To enter a digit, you press and release the 

 button of the PlainView 

2 switch the number of times of the digit to be entered, followed by pressing the unmarked

button. To enter a zero, you simply press and release the unmarked button.


Entering a code:

To enter your code, just repeat the above for each digit of your code.

  How to set your own se cret valet code  

You may choose any 1-, 2-, 3- or 4-digit code, but the first digit must not be a zero (e.g.,

1023 is a valid code, 0123 would not be a valid code). You can also change your valet

code whenever and wherever you want. See 

User-selectable features

 on pages 18-19.

Ex am ple

Let’s say you want to set a valet code of 2301. To do so, you would do the following:
1. From the 

Table of user-selectable features

 on page 19, you would note that the 

Set a

new secret disarming/valet code

 feature is in column 2, row 7.

2. Enter program mode by turning on the ignition, entering your current valet code,

then pressing and holding the PlainView 2 switch’s 

 button for 3 seconds until you

hear a chirp.

3. Select column 2 by pressing the unmarked button twice. After a brief pause, you will

hear 2 chirps to confirm that you have selected feature column 2.

4. Within 5 seconds, select row 7  by pressing and releasing the PlainView 2 

 button 7

times. To help you count, you will hear a chirp each time you press the 

 button. After 7

presses, immediately press the unmarked button, then immediately enter your new code. 

Example: To enter 4301 as your new code, you would press the switch buttons
in this manner:  


 un marked, 


 un marked, un marked, 

 un marked.

5. Wait for the 2-chirp confirmation.

6. Turn off the ignition to exit program mode (you’ll hear a 3-chirp confirmation).


VERY IMPORTANT: You must immediately test your new secret valet code:

Turn on the ignition, enter your new code, then press and hold the unmarked button

for 3 seconds. The LED will illuminate to indicate that the system is in valet mode (see

page 11 for information on valet mode). Turn the ignition off. The system is now in valet


If the LED does not illuminate, the new code you programmed and the one
you just entered do not match. In such a case, the system will revert to the
previous code.

8. To exit valet mode and return to normal operation, turn the ignition on. The LED

will turn off to indicate that the system has exited valet mode and is now in normal

operating mode. You may now turn off the ignition.

  Re mote con trolled valet mode en try and exit  

You can even enable or exit valet mode with your remote control simply by

simultaneously pressing the 


 buttons. In addition to the LED indications

noted above, two indicator light flashes will confirm that you have remotely enabled

valet mode, a single flash confirms valet mode exit. If you prefer, you may turn off remote 

controlled valet mode as noted in the 

User-selectable features

 section on pages 18-19 so

that the system 


 be placed in valet mode via the remote control.

  Key less en try in valet mode  

Even if the valet mode is enabled, you can still remotely control the system’s

convenience features and accessories. For instance, pressing the 

 button as if you

were disarming will unlock the doors (indicated by one indicator light flash) and turn on

the interior light(s). Press the 

 button again and the doors will lock (confirmed by

two flashes). You may also use the other remote control buttons to activate options such

as a remote boot release or remote engine starting.

Prox im ity Sen sor III

Your Concept 300 has our unique Proximity Sensor III, which uses digital signal

processing to detect movement inside the passenger compartment. If a thief were to

break a window and either enter or lean into the passenger compartment, this sensor

would detect this movement and would trigger the alarm. 

Be aware that the Proximity Sensor uses radar waves to detect movement in the

passenger compartment. These radar waves pass through nonmetallic materials such as

plastic, carpet, glass and wood. However, metal and metallic-colored paint,

metallic-colored plastic and even some metallic film window tinting materials will

interfere with or completely block the sensor’s radar waves. As such, it is not unusual

that the Proximity Sensor zones may need a little readjustment when you first have the

Concept 300 installed. In some instances, your Clifford installer may need to try a

different location for the sensor.

Keep in mind that metal objects above or near the Proximity Sensor location
will have a significant impact on operation, so you should never place coins,
CDs, cassettes (iron oxide tape) or other metallic objects above or near
where the sensor is mounted.

Your Authorised Clifford Dealer can make any sensor adjustments needed.

  Re mote con trolled over ride of the Prox im ity Sen sor III  

Pressing button combination 


 after remote arming will override the

Proximity Sensor (confirmed with 4 indicator light flashes). This comes in handy when

you must temporarily leave a pet or a passenger in the vehicle. The sensor is

automatically restored the next time you arm.

How to in ter pret the LED status in di ca tor

The LED status indicator mounted on your vehicle’s dashboard or console will inform

you of the system status:

LED Condition

How to in ter pret the chirps and in di ca tor light flashes

When you use the remote control, the system responds with chirps (unless 

the chirp muting

feature is turned on) and indicator light flashes.


These chirp/flash acknowledgments mean:




You have disarmed the system

OR (flash only) you have remotely exited valet mode (see page 12)


You have armed the system

OR (flashes only) you have remotely entered valet mode (see page 12)

(see Smart prior intrusion attempt on page 15)


Armed but the bonnet or boot is ajar (see Smart AutoTesting below) or

(flashes only) confirms remote override of the Proximity Sensor (see page 13)

Smart Au toTest ing™

Each time you remotely arm the system, it tests all triggers and sensors. If the 

bonnet or

The system can also indicate the 


 trigger or sensor that is malfunctioning. If you

get the 4-chirp/4-flash signal upon arming, perform the following to identify the

malfunctioning trigger or sensor:
1. Remotely disarm, then turn on the ignition. The LED status indicator inside your

vehicle will be flashing, pause, then repeat.  

2. Count the number of flashes in one cycle between pauses (for your convenience, the

flash cycle repeats a total of 5 times) and refer to the chart below:

background image

  Auto mat ic mal func tion by pass with AutoRe Moni tor ing™  

To provide protection even if a component malfunctions, the system automatically bypass 

any faulty point and arm all 


 triggers and sensors to provide the utmost possible

protection until you can have the system serviced by your local Authorised Clifford

Dealer. If you accidentally armed with the bonnet, boot or a door open, just close the

open point (no need to disarm-and-rearm) and the system will again monitor that point.

Multiple- event To tal Re call™

The system’s memory records the identity of the last eight activated or malfunctioning

triggers and sensors, which allows your installer to instantly track down malfunctions. To

identify the triggers and sensors held in the system’s memory, use the following procedure:
1. Remotely arm and disarm while pressing and holding the unmarked button on the

PlainView 2 switch.

2. The LED will flash 1-10 times to indicate the most recently activated point, pause,

flash 1-10 times to indicate the second most recently activated point, and so on.

3. Write down the number of flashes between pauses and refer to the chart on the

previous page.

Smart prior in tru sion at tempt alert

If you hear three chirps when you disarm with the remote control, it means that a trigger 

or sensor was activated in your absence. When you enter the vehicle and turn on the

ignition (or start the engine), the LED will flash 1-10 times, pause, then repeat the flash

cycle 4 more times. Count the number of flashes in one cycle and refer to the chart on

the previous page.

Op tional Cliff Net Wiz ard™ & Da ta Port  

If you opted to have the Clifford DataPort interface connector installed with your

Concept 300, you can use our CliffNet Wizard software to access your system through

your PC (Microsoft Windows™ required). Doing so provides a wealth of benefits:


Point-and-Click Feature Programming

— Programming the system’s many features

is easy with the PlainView 2 Switch. But setting and selecting features via the optional

CliffNet Wizard is a true joy. The intuitive graphical user interface of CliffNet Wizard

will actually show you, on your PC screen, the on/off and other settings of each user-

programmable feature. You can change settings simply by mouse-clicking the graphical

button for each feature. Now you can customise features, add or delete remote

controls, change remote control button assignments, set timers, view a chronological

history of trigger and sensor activations, and much more whilst actually having fun!



— What if a clever thief tries using his laptop to control your system?

We know that could happen. That’s why we doubly protect access to the system. In

order to “connect” with the control unit, the system must first be disarmed with your

remote control and you must enter your secret valet code.

If you are interested in learning more about these capabilities and enhancements to your

Concept 300, you’ll find extensive details at our Internet Website at


. If you already have this option, please refer to the CliffNet

Wizard manual and/or online help for specific operating instructions (you may also

download any enhancements or revisions to CliffNet Wizard from our website at

Timer op tions

The system’s built-in electronic timer can be optionally wired to provide one of several

different functions. Ask your Authorised Clifford Dealer for further details:

  Re mote con trolled timed head light activation option  

The system’s built-in timer can be wired through an optional relay to provide remote

controlled headlight activation for any duration you wish between 1 second and 4 minutes,

allowing you to remotely light your way to and from the vehicle by pressing the 

button on your remote control.  

  Auto mat ic re mote win dow clo sure op tion   

The timer can be wired with an optional relay to automatically close the windows upon

remote arming on vehicles with a feature that closes them if the key is held in the

driver's door (this is a feature on several European cars). These cars have a special circuit 

to detect when each window is fully closed and cuts power to that motor.

If your vehicle does not have this feature, Clifford’s Window RollUp Module is needed.

One module can control two power windows.

We also offer a more advanced SmartWindows 4 module that does the same thing, but

also allows you to remotely roll down the windows after disarming and remotely vent

them open slightly for ventilation on hot days. Inside the car, SmartWindows 4 also

provides one-touch full open, one-touch full close and one-touch stop to each of your

factory window control switches.

Auto matic Win dow Rol lUp In stant By pass  

If you have the automatic window closure option, you may arm 



closing the windows. This is handy on hot days by allowing you to leave one or more

windows slightly open for ventilation whilst the system remains armed. 

To do so, simply turn the ignition switch to “ON” and then “OFF” rapidly. You will hear

a chirp confirmation (this action also activates 

Instant AutoArming Bypass

 noted on page

10). When you then exit and arm, the system will not close the windows. Normal

operation is restored the next time you arm.

Smart Powe rUp™ 2

If power to your Concept 300 system is ever removed, the SmartPowerUp 2 feature

automatically restores the system’s previous state when power is restored.

So if a thief tampers with the power, the system instantly re-arms and sounds the siren

(your vehicle will remain immobilized even without power). For vehicle servicing, just

put the system in valet mode. If your mechanic must interrupt power, the system will

automatically return to valet mode when power is restored; there will be no alarm




background image

Smart Self- Powered Me dal lion Si ren with Digi tal Com Link

This siren has its own built-in back-up battery, so even if a thief cuts all the wires, the

siren will continue to wail. Furthermore, this unique Clifford-designed and manufactured 

siren has all these important additional enhancements:


Unbreachable Digital ComLink:

Clifford’s ingenious Digital ComLink is a serial

communications link that ensures that — if the system fuse is pulled, or if power to the 

system is interrupted, or if any siren wire is tampered with whilst the system is armed

— the siren will instantly activate for five minutes. However, if the system is disarmed

and power is interrupted for authorised servicing, the siren will remain silent. This

eliminates the need for a special separate shutoff key common to other battery-backed

sirens. This ingenious Clifford feature guards against any possibility of a thief tampering 

with your system siren.



Other car alarm battery-backed sirens continually draw their

charging current from your vehicle’s battery. If the vehicle is left parked for several

days, this can drain the car’s battery. Clifford’s Smart Self-Powered Medallion Siren

only draws charging current whilst the vehicle’s ignition is on, i.e., whilst you’re

driving. This prevents battery drain.


Automatic low battery warning:

If at any time the Smart Self-Powered Medallion

Siren’s back-up battery voltage is very low, the usual arm and disarm chirps will be

muted automatically to alert you of the problem. Once the back-up battery is charged,

the chirps will automatically be restored.


Remote siren silencing:

If the system is triggered by a non-threatening event, you

can silence the siren without having to remotely disarm and then re-arm. Simply press


 on the remote control whilst the siren is sounding. You’ll hear two chirps

(the usual armed indication) to confirm the system has remained armed. If, however,

you press button 1 whilst the siren is sounding and either the vehicle’s ignition is on or

the bonnet, boot or a door is open, you will instead hear 4 chirps to indicate this may

indeed be a genuine theft attempt.


User-selectable chirp volume:

You can control the volume of your Concept 300

system’s arm and disarm chirps. As shipped from the factory, your Concept 300 system

issues QuietChirp™ acknowledgments. If you prefer, you may select the full-volume

LoudChirp™ acknowledgments. See the 

User-selectable features

 section on pages 18-19.


Long-term chirp silencing:

Whenever you wish, you may silence your Concept 300’s

arm and disarm chirps on a long-term basis until you later decide to restore them. Your 

vehicle’s  indicator light flashes will continue to provide visual confirmation of remote

controlled system arming and disarming. See 

User-selectable features

 on pages 18-19.


Remote controlled chirp muting:

Remote controlled chirp muting capabilities are

especially valuable when parking late at night in a quiet residential area or any other

time when you want to arm or disarm silently. To arm or disarm silently, just

simultaneously press buttons 


 on the remote control instead of the usual 

 arming/disarming button alone.


Patented automatic noise abatement:

Alarm sounding is limited to five 30-second

siren duration cycles even if a door is left open in the wake of an intrusion to ensure

against car battery drain or towing due to noise pollution ordinances. Your Concept

300 system then automatically resets and monitors all other inputs to provide the

utmost possible protection.

You must now add new/existing remotes with the “Add new remote” feature (column 1,
row 1).  

NOTE 3: Immediately press the unmarked button, enter your new code, wait for the two
, then turn off the ignition (you’ll hear 3 chirps to confirm program mode exit). You
MUST now turn the ignition back on and then re-enter your new code. If the LED flashes

match and the system has reverted to your previous code. 

NOTE 4: This allows you to arm/disarm your system with an unused button or button
combination on the remote control of a Concept 100, 300, 400 or 600 system on your other

 of the other car’s remote control to arm and disarm

your Concept 300, select column 4, row 1, then press button 

 (you’ll hear one chirp).

Immediately press button 

 a second time (you’ll hear a 2-chirp confirmation).  Button 

of the other vehicle’s remote will now arm/disarm your Concept 300 on this car.

NOTE 5: The features in this column allow you to control your Concept 300 with the ACG
2 remote control of a Clifford system on your other vehicle(s). Just select the function you
wish, then transmit the unused button or button combination on the other remote that you
want to use to perform that function (you will then hear the chirps noted). Please note that you
must first set a button or button combination on the remote that will arm/disarm the system
(column 4, row 1) before these others will be accepted.
