Remote Start w/ factory remote
2-7-14 Modern conveniences on new cars are constantly evolving. We used to get excited when we got a remote control to lock and unlock our cars. Then we got tired of carrying the remote in our pocket or purse. Now some of the factory keyless entry functions are attached right to the head of the key so there is no seperate remote. Just a bulky key. Then along comes DAS and we add a remote start to the vehicle and you end up carrying both the bulky key and a seperate remote to start and stop your car. The good news is that remote start technology constantly evolves too.
In select vehicles, we can now offer remote starter systems that utilize your factory remote to start and stop the car. No need for a seperate remote. We simply install a vehicle specific T-harness that is designed to communicate with the factory remote. While these units are convenient, they do have their limitations. The biggest draw back is that your starting range is limited to the range on the factory remote. This can be circumvented by also adding Smart Phone integration with your remote start allowing you to start your vehicle from virtually anywhere. A solution for every problem!
As I said, technology is constantly evolving. We’re here to show you the endless possiblities.
