A remote start system is a useful aftermarket addition to your car. It allows you to lock, unlock and start the vehicle’s engine without using a mechanical key. These systems can also help you pre heat the engine, turn on the air conditioning or heating from indoors on a hot or cold day.  

Remote start systems also boost the security of your vehicle by bringing a range of security features under one umbrella. Most systems include alarms to ward off car thieves and prevent unauthorized entry. Keyless entry systems allow the driver to unlock the vehicle’s doors at the push of a button. It is because of this convenience factor that manufacturers are installing these systems in their newer models.

What to look for In a Remote Start system

Using the information provided below you will be able to make the right decision and get a remote start system that will suit your needs.

Device Range

Most users generally park their vehicles outside their garages or outside their apartments, so device range is not a major concern for them.  But whenever you park your car at other places like outside the office, parking lots, etc, a device with increased range does come in handy. However, range is entirely up to you, can choose systems with a range of 50 feet to more than 1 km.

Does it have passive keyless entry?

Most remote start systems unlock the vehicle’s doors when the user presses a button on a remote, also known as a key fob. These systems are known as remote keyless entry. For added convenience, some manufacturers offer the feature whereas the user can unlock the car’s doors by just approaching it. This is known as passive keyless entry.

Voxx Electronics

The first remote starter on this list is the Voxx Electronics One-Way Remote Starter and Keyless Entry System. This system allows you to program engine startups at regular intervals. This feature is especially useful in cold climates as it allows you to warm up your vehicle from the comfort of home or office. There is a drawback however; Voxx Electronics’ remote starter is incompatible with hybrid cars.

Python LED 2-Way

The Python LED 2-Way remote start system is a basic system. It is smartphone compatible, which means that it comes with a companion app that allows the driver to control basic functions with their smartphones.  The Python remote starter does not have an LCD display that can display basic functions, alerts, warnings, etc.

Compustar Drone

Third on the list is the Drone remote starter from Compustar.  So far it has received great reviews from automotive enthusiasts. The system consists of a smartphone app. It was essentially made for those people who already had a keyless entry system.  Users can remote start their vehicles from their smartphones, and it doesn’t stop there. The system allows the driver to track their cars from a personal computer or their smartphones. The Drone from Compustar lets the user unlock, lock the doors and start the engine as long as mobile internet/data coverage is available.

The Drone is compatible with iOS, Android, or Blackberry based devices. A negative point related to the Drone is that, unlike other remote start systems, it requires users to buy the app and then pay a fee every year after that.

Delta Keyless Go

Delta Keyless Go is a high-end remote start system, it may look simple and ordinary, but it offers an impressive set of features. Keyless Go works with both automatic and manual transmission systems. The key fob operates at a distance of 50 meters. The system has a companion smartphone app, called Air Start, which is entirely up to the driver to include in the end product.

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.
