Security systems don't typically cause stalling. They do cause issues starting. And, a security system can cause a drain on the battery. I just don't know what to make of the stalling based off of your statements. You could have a loss of ignition spark or fuel system pressure. A tech needs to check the problem as it occurs to see what element is missing.

Alternator, I had the same problem. It starts with stereo shutting off first randomly and then the lights die along with the car.
