A client from Anchorage, Alaska, brought her 2019 Honda HR-V into our shop, looking for a new remote start. As with all of our projects, we started this install with a check-in using an iPad, which includes taking photos of the interior and exterior, checking the functions of the vehicle, and performing a battery test. We then put a battery charger on the vehicle with a fender cover to protect its paint from any scratches.
During the install, our techs solder every connection and wrap the wires in electrical tape, followed by using JK Tapes — a cloth tape similar to the type used in a factory — to clean up the install.
We installed the Compustar Prime G15 remote on this customer’s van, along with the Compustar Drone. The Prime G15 is a two-way remote with a maximum range of half a mile. “Two-way” means that the customer will be alerted when the vehicle is started, locked or unlocked through an LED notification — even through a push notification when using the Compustar DroneMobile app.
When our client came to pick up the vehicle, she was smiling and so excited to be able to continue to stay warm all winter, and stay cool in our hot summers.
