Remote Start: Comfort with the push of a button!

Seasons come and go, and with the changing of seasons comes changes in weather. With a remote start, you don’t have to get into an uncomfortable vehicle. Not only is it uncomfortable to get into the car, but you also have to wait for 5+ minutes until your desired temperature is reached.

Beating the weather battle is probably more affordable and simple than you might think. Getting a remote start system installed into your vehicle can save you time and make driving in cold (or hot too!) weather far less of a chore that it usually is. With literally a push of a button, you can make this year’s switch easy.

How Remote Start Works

Remote starts are easy for any driver to use: simply press a button on your remote from your cozy location indoors and the car turns on. You can also turn off your car using your remote if your plans have changed. The vehicle will stay locked until you unlock it and you’ll know the remote start worked because your parking lights will flash to confirm that the signal was successful. It is important to keep in mind that you will need to actually turn your key in the ignition in order to put your car into gear.

What Else Can a Remote Start Do?

We explained how a basic remote start works but there are many models that come with extra features that can further enhance the convenience of a remote start system. There are systems that can also include complete security, temperature sensors that automatically start the car when the temperature falls to a set level, the ability to start your car from anywhere in the world via your SmartPhone (see Viper SmartStart), and other fantastic features. You have a lot of options when it comes to remote start systems and if you give us a call or come in, we can help you choose what will work best for your vehicle and lifestyle. We will make sure that the remote start is compatible with your vehicle and that it is installed correctly.
