Auto Image has been offering the finest-quality remote start and security systems since 1987. If you are looking for a company you can trust, let us show you why more and more people on the Jersey Shore choose us every year.
Remote car starters are becoming more popular every year, and for good reason. Imagine never going out to a cold car or having to scrape ice off your windows again. Or how about being able to cool your vehicle down on a hot, muggy New Jersey day? Sound appealing? We thought so.
How People Use Their Remote Start
One of the common assumptions about an automatic starter is that you will only use it from home. While we agree that you will use it from the house most often, most of our clients end up using theirs at many times over the course of the day. Let’s think about a few things for a minute. if your vehicle sits at work or school for several hours, why would you want it to be cold when you go back to it? When you go out on a date, meet friends or go shopping and your car sits for a couple of hours, it will get cold inside then as well.
Why are we telling you this? Because basic remote starters have very limited range and will limit your ability to have this wonderful convenience. Here is our suggestion: Think about all the places where your vehicle sits over the course of an average week, and then buy enough range to remote start it in all those areas.
One-Way Vs Two-Way
A one-way system works just like your factory keyless entry system. You push a button on your remote, and it communicates with your vehicle in one direction. When you move up to a two-way system, the remote gets confirmation back from the vehicle that the command has been executed. Since you will start your car, truck or SUV in many places where you won’t see it, the two-way function lets you know for sure that your vehicle will be warm and toasty when you get out to it and scraping ice off the windows will quickly become a distant memory.
Smartphone-based systems are the ultimate way to operate your remote starter. Once Auto Image installs your remote starter, you download a free app to your iPhone or Android phone and get complete control over your system from almost anywhere in the world. As long as the module we install in your vehicle can access the Internet and your phone has Internet access, you have unlimited range. (Since our smartphone systems use the Internet for service, there is a small data plan subscription fee and any of our staff will be glad to go into more details with you.)
Imagine going out with friends, and they choose to drive from where you’re parked. When you are 10 minutes away from your vehicle at the end of the evening, you simply press a button on your phone, you get a confirmation that the vehicle has started and, when you arrive, your ride is warm and inviting. How cool is that?
Vehicle Security Systems
If you are the kind of person who wants to keep your vehicle protected or monitor what is going on, a security system from Auto Image is perfect for you. We can monitor all the entry points of the vehicle and add impact sensors or digital tilt and motion sensors that protect your vehicle and alert you to any tampering with it. If you buy a two-way or smartphone system, you get notified of a threat. Our smartphone systems even give you the ability to add GPS tracking for greater peace of mind. This is especially helpful if you have younger drivers in your household. You can do a security system as a stand-alone product of for the ultimate package; it can be paired with a remote starter.
Choose Highly Skilled Technicians For Installation
Once you decide to get a remote start, security system or combination of both, you want a shop that employs highly skilled technicians. Installing one of these systems can be likened to performing surgery on your electrical system. Done properly, it will give you years of reliable use. Done improperly, it can result in you being stranded on the side of the road in the dead of winter.
