11-20-13 Do you remember when you got your first vehicle with keyless entry? Having a remote to unlock the doors was awesome! No more fumbling with the key and dealing with frozen locks in the winter. Just push a button and you’re instantly in your vehicle. Push another button and the trunk pops open. Wow! It was so great you thought you’d never want to be without that remote. My how times have changed. That remote is no longer a big deal and in fact is becoming obsolete.
Customers are now realizing the benefit of using their SmartPhones to lock and unlock their doors as well as to remote start their cars. Demand for the units has gone up enough that prices have been driven down. In fact, you can now purchase a stand alone, Smart Phone controlled remote start for under $500 and annual fees for the service are just $49.99/year after the first year. Plus our systems are now using the Verizon Wireless network of cell towers so the coverage area is even greater. Technology has come a long way.
Good-bye old remote!
