Pity there’s no reviews, you can get 5 star rated ones on Amazon etc for similar price.

Aldi items are normally of acceptable quality.

Don't forget if buying signal blocking pouches that 2 are needed - the other one for your spare key fob.
I got 2 from E Bay for around £8 and they work fine. Many of these have two slots and if the fob is placed in the wrong slot they won't work.
I think that's why some of them get a bad press, it's not that they don't work, it's because they aren't being used correctly.

I prefer to use a key fob that you have to push a button to get the doors to unlock. Keyless entry is one step too far for me. Happy Christmas to all my readers. 🎅⛄🎄🛷

What you're using is still keyless entry i.e. you still have to press a button on a fob to open the car. You then have to insert your key into the ignition, whereas we don't.
Your type of entry is probably less safe from attack than a Kessy system. At least with Kessy, it can be disabled by touching the indent in the door handle after locking the car and the signal from fob to car can be hidden with a Faraday bag.
In your case, a ne'er do well can be sitting nearby with a magic box that can read your signal when you lock your car and it can then be used to unlock your car when you've walked away e.g. in a car park.

A Merry Christmas to you too
