What is remote start and why should you get one?

Many luxury brands have remote starters pre-installed in their vehicles; but if you own a Toyota, Honda or a Hyundai it doesn’t mean that you can’t install one in your car. Remote start systems are amazingly convenient, and probably the best aftermarket addition to your car.

What is remote start?

A remote start, as the name suggests, enables you to start your car with a remote or with your smartphone. It is feature in keyless entry systems such as Keyless Go.

Perhaps the biggest reason to install a remote start system is comfort and peace of mind. Think about it who doesn’t want to get rid of their car keys because they keep losing them. With this system you don’t have to worry about that, the key fob will be safely stored inside your pocket or handbag.  You don’t need to turn a mechanical key to unlock your car’s doors, or start its engine. The doors unlock automatically when you get close to the vehicle, and one inside just push a button to start the engine. It is this simple, all you need to do now is get in and drive away.

Warming Up the car’s Engine

Car mechanics and experts will tell you that it is always better to warm up the engine for a couple of minutes instead of driving away with an engine that has been cold for hours. This practice also contributes in increasing engine life. Using a remote start system e.g. Keyless Go paired with Air Start, you can start your vehicle’s engine beforehand. By the time you get there the engine is warmed up and ready to go. This also greatly increases the performance of the engine.

Post drivers just ignore warming up the engine, and drive off, within seconds, after starting their vehicles. This will create problems for them over time. Installing a remote start system means that when you are ready and set to go, so is your vehicle

Security

If you are an automotive enthusiast and also interested in security, then a remote start system is prefect for you. Let us set the record straight. A remote start system does not make a vehicle easy to steal.  When it is remote started, it doesn’t mean that a vehicle is ripe for stealing. When you touch a button on your smartphone to start the car, all its doors are locked automatically to deter thieves.  These systems use rolling code encryption to communicate with your vehicle. No one can use just any key fob or smart key to unlock the vehicle or start its engine. In simple terms, your key fob matches your car.

When the driver exits the vehicle, and goes out of range the vehicle’s doors lock automatically. Right now you are probably thinking that the doors are easy to unlock and this is a job that an amateur thief can perform.  Well, you are wrong. Not only does Keyless Go, our remote starter, lock the doors, it rolls up the windows, shuts down the engine and puts the car in immobilizer mode. As long as the car is immobilized it will not start, and hot wiring it is out of the question.

It allows you to track your car

Air Start, a feature of Keyless Go, lets you track your car with your smartphone. No need for a fancy car tracking system and a technician to tell you the vehicle’s location. You can simply touch a button on your smartphone and find out the current location of your vehicle via Google Maps.  Not only does this system give you an updated and current location, it also gives you the vehicle’s speed and direction of travel. This is a useful feature for those parents that want to keep an eye on their teenage children

Increases re-sale value

When the time comes to sell your vehicle, after market additions and features can greatly increase the re sale value. This gives the buyer a very positive impression that you deeply cared for your car. No everyone wants to install aftermarket features and systems, so in a way you are unique in the eyes of the buyer.  It is because of this that you can ask for a higher price. Those aftermarket additions and features that everyone told you were a waste of money, will actually pay for themselves.

While it is true that alarms and central locking systems are great deterrents for car thieves, these systems also have certain weaknesses that will leave your car vulnerable.

A keyless entry system does exactly what the name suggests. It allows you to unlock, lock and start your car without using a mechanical key. The driver can either hold the keyless entry fob (also known as a smart key) in their hand or keep it in a handbag. When the driver approaches the car, its doors unlock automatically. All that remains is to start the engine which can be done by pushing a button, located on the dashboard. All this is done without even touching the car keys.

An alarm system, as the name suggests, sounds an alarm whenever someone tries to force their way into or mess with your car.  But an alarm system doesn’t hold up against more experienced and tech savvy car thieves.

There are other ways of protecting your car than just installing a central locking system and hoping that an experienced car thief doesn’t notice your car. On top of that a central locking system and alarm system can easily be disabled. Even an amateur car thief with wire cutters can disable the system by cutting the power to the control circuit.

The most secure and reliable way to protect your car is to install a keyless entry system.  Keyless Go comes with an array of security features, like rolling codes, auto window up-rolling, Auto door lock, to name just a few.

A keyless entry system is silent, but secure.

When a central locking system or alarm system activates in most cars, you can hear it. The sound it usually makes is a chime, click, etc. Many central locking systems and alarm systems also give a visual signal in the form of flashing the headlights or indicators. Keyless Go is different. It is like a ninja, silent but very effective.
