With a compatible device (iPhone or Android) and the starting module installed in your vehicle, you just download the mobile app for your phone. You don’t even have to be near your car, just be connected to a 4G or Wi-Fi network.
You can also add the smartphone functionality to an existing remote starter after checking for compatibility, which eliminates the need to carry a transmitter.
Certain types of products offer even more functionality, like being able to locate your vehicle in a large parking lot or if it’s stolen and also diagnose engine error codes.
Remote starters communicate information about your vehicle to you via a remote transmitter. The information can include interior temperature, battery voltage, open doors, shock sensor alert, open hood, locked or unlocked doors. The transmitter can also tell time and be used as an alarm clock.
Transmitters for these remotes are typically larger and feature an LCD screen that clearly displays your vehicle information. These models are in the higher-end price range.
Basic models have a range of about 800 feet while premium models extend up to 3,000 feet or more.
