Remote Start Systems
One of the most popular pieces of automotive technology is the remote car starter, and it’s easy to see why. People love the convenience of being able to start their vehicles from the comfort and safety of their own homes. Whether it’s freezing or sweltering outside, being able to step directly from your home into a climate-controlled car is a huge benefit for many. Waiting for the windshield to defrost or de-ice is no longer a consideration for anyone who makes this wise investment.
A factor that many don’t take into consideration when purchasing a system, however, is the range over which it will be used. Of course, one’s home will be the area most often thought of, but work, family and friends’ houses and favorite shopping places are also important. Basic remote start systems have a limited range, so when deciding how wide the range should be, it’s always best to be thorough in your investigation.
One-Way or Two-Way?
One-way remote starters operate the same as basic keyless entry systems. A button on the remote sends a command to the car that it’s joined with. With a two-way system, the vehicle will then send a communication back to inform the remote that the action has been carried out. This allows the driver to be certain that their wishes have been carried out, even if the vehicle is not in sight.
Linking to a Smartphone
Some remote starter systems these days can be linked with the user’s smartphone. By simply downloading a free app to your smartphone, you can control your remote starter from almost anywhere. The installed system has to have Internet capability and the phone in question must have Internet access, but if those two requirements are met, range is unlimited. Auto Image offers a range of these products that work with both iPhone and Android phones. Like any data plan, there is a subscription fee associated with these systems, but it is nominal. We have a helpful, friendly staff on hand that can offer further information about these products.
Auto Image stocks a wide range of vehicle security systems. With rising crime rates in cities all over the United States, it’s more important than ever to be able to monitor your vehicle. These systems allow the user to view all entry points of their car, as well as providing impact and motion sensors that sound an alarm when they are triggered. Our two-way or smartphone will send an alert to the owner, and smartphone users can even add GPS so they know where their vehicles are at all times. Even if theft isn’t a concern, this is a great boon for parents of younger drivers. At Auto Image, we can install a security system for you by itself or as part of a package deal with a remote starter for the ultimate in comfort and peace of mind.
The Right Choice
Simply buying the right products isn’t enough. You need to purchase these systems from a trustworthy source that has skilled technicians that know how to install and set up security devices. Installation of these systems can be compared to performing surgery on a vehicle. If it’s done well, it will work reliably for years to come, whereas if it’s not, you could find yourself in an uncomfortable or even dangerous situation.
Because we value your safety and comfort above all, the team at Auto Image has been extensively trained on the most recommended methods for these types of installations. Our company prides itself not only on quality products but on quality work as well.
For those who fear that installing these aftermarket systems will void their cars’ warranties, consider the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act. Passed by Congress in 1975, it guarantees that car manufacturers must honor their warranties even after the installation of non-factory parts.
