In all of our conversations with clients about the topic of remote starters, several things keep coming up that our clients did not know, so Perfectionist Auto Sound & Security has worked up this guide to get you up to speed on many things related to getting a remote starter installed on your vehicle. Here are our five things you didn’t know about remote starters.
1. Remote starters can turn on your heated seats
Your remote starter can turn on your heated seats. For many vehicles, our team of highly skilled installers can build you a circuit to engage your seat heaters. We can even set some of our systems to turn on automatically at a certain temperature when you remote-start it.
2. Remote starters can defrost your windows
Remote starters will defrost your windows. When you get out of your vehicle, simply turn the setting to defrost and, as your heating system warms up, the windshield and two front doors will see the frost, ice and snow start melting away. For even more convenience, in many vehicles, we can set up your rear defrost to engage automatically below a certain temperature, so it will even defrost and de-ice your windows for you.
3. You can start your car from your smartphone
Now you don’t even need a remote control anymore – you can remote-start your vehicle from your smartphone. To make matters more interesting, that system has an almost-limitless amount of range. As long as your phone has Internet access and your vehicle has Internet access where it is parked, you can start your vehicle from anywhere. Even miles and miles away.
4. You can remote start your car from your factory key fob
You can use your factory key fob to remote-start your vehicle. Have you always wanted a remote start, but didn’t want to carry an extra fob? In many vehicles, we can use the factory fob to activate one of our remote starters. Just ask one of our team members for more information.
5. Remote starters save wear and tear on your engine
Remote starters save wear and tear on your engine. When it is cold outside, it is a good idea to let it warm up and get the fluids flowing freely before driving away. And that is exactly what a remote starter will do for you. Now you can have a warm vehicle and be nicer to it at the same time. Life is good.
We can never stop at five, so we saved the best for last.
6. Your remote can tell you a lot about your car
You can get confirmation that your vehicle has started. We call this two-way control of your system. You ask the vehicle to start and, once it does that, you get confirmation back to your remote control. Now, when you are farther away from your vehicle, you will have the peace of mind of knowing that it is warming up, and the windows are being defrosted.
