It depends on what you want to do. The door locks, security system, door switches and others are controlled by or send data over the internal CAN bus. The Immobiliser Transponder Transceiver communicates with the ECU via a separate link in the Gen7; this may also be on the CAN in later models.
The CANMAX type of devices learns the ECU to Immobiliser unlock code and reinject this into the ECU to allow you to start the car without a key, not like crap systems that tape a second key transponder inside the column, which is a MAJOR security flaw.
This means is no wiring has to run from the driver door control unit and remote alarm/unlock receiver (inside the drivers arm rest). This is the most elegant system, however if the remote control unit for this system is not secure or is easily cracked or the remote start unit is not correctly set up to disable the running engine on forced entry of any kind then you compromise the Immobiliser and security of the car.
