If you own an Apple Watch, chances are the one reason you purchased it is for the convenience it offers. It is really great how the watch allows you to have most of your iPhone apps right on your wrist. Did you know you can now remote start your vehicle from your Apple Watch? Here at Perfectionist Auto Sound and Security, our team can make this possible in most vehicles!
A Remote Starter is Installed in Your Vehicle
The first step in making this a reality is to have a remote starter installed in your vehicle. The Compustar DroneMobile is an incredible remote start system that runs off an app on your smartphone. Once the module is installed in your vehicle, you can download the free app and have control over your vehicle from anywhere in the world. As long as you have cell phone service, the app will work. A small data plan is required to use the DroneMobile, but as mentioned, the app is free!
Share the DroneMobile App with Your Apple Watch
Once you have the DroneMobile installed in your vehicle and the app downloaded on your iPhone, you can access the app on your Apple Watch as well. It is important to make sure your iPhone and Apple Watch are both updated to the latest software version to avoid any hiccups. It doesn’t get any more convenient than having control over your vehicle from a device on your wrist. You can say goodbye to any additional remotes on your keyring since everything is done from either your phone or watch!
Controlling Your Vehicle from Your Apple Watch
Now that everything is installed, the fun begins! You can verbally tell Siri to ‘Open the Drone Mobile app’ on your Apple Watch or click on the app yourself. Once the app is opened, you’ll have the choice of telling your vehicle what to do. The main options include locking and unlocking your doors, or starting / turning off the engine. You can also check the status of your vehicle to see if your car is still running. This is great if you start your vehicle while you are getting ready in the morning. Maybe you realize you forgot to pack your lunch and it takes you a little longer to get out the door. If you want to know whether your car is still running or if it has shut off, you can check the status of it on your watch. One of the greatest benefits of using the Apple Watch to control your vehicle is the control is right there on your wrist!
