Smartphone Remote Start

2-12-13 Did you know you can start your car from anywhere in the world right from your computer or Smartphone? Many manufacturers now offer remote starter systems with cellular technology integrated in them. Simply have us install one of those systems in your car and then up for Smartphone service to complete the installation. Once that’s done, you can use your phone to start your car, unlock or lock your doors and more.  It’s amazing what technology can do!

If you don’t have a Smartphone, another feature included in many remote starters is the ability to set your remote start system to start the car at a pre-set time or in pre-set conditions. In the old days, if you were worried about coming out to a dead battery the morning after sub-zero temperatures you would get up during the night and start your car and let it run for a while before you went back in your warm home and cussed out your car. That process becomes obsolete with a remote starter.  Just activate the automatic start feature with your remote before going to bed and the car will start and run for the preset run time charging the battery, warming things up and then turning itself off. (Of course, this only applies to cars parked OUTSIDE overnight and you’ll want to be sure there’s gas in the car.)

There are many conveniences built into remote starters these days.  Call us and we’ll go over all the features with you.
