When most people think of remote car starters, they think of staying warm in the morning. Guess what? That is the #1 reason that people buy them. What most people don’t know about is all of the added convenience that a remote car starter can offer.
2 Way Remotes – The Ultimate in Convenience
YOU HAVE TO GET A 2 WAY REMOTE STARTER!!!! Well, you don’t have to…. But you should!
Remote starters are probably one of the best additions that you can make to your car. You press that button and ABRACADABRA! The car starts. But how do you know it is started? If you can see it, that’s great… the parking lights will be on and you may see some exhaust… the car’s running!
But what if you are parked around the corner or in a distant lot at work? 2 Way to the rescue! Mobile Edge offers remote controls that actually get a signal back from the car! The remote starter unit sends a message to the remote to let it know a variety of information. Is it started or stopped? Locked or unlocked? Interior temperature, vehicle battery voltage, and more…all of that in the palm of your hand.
2 Way costs a little more, but trust me… It’s worth it!
Yeah… I know… Your car came with keyless entry. You don’t need to add it to your remote car starter. Let me tell you why you do. Have you ever walked into a restaurant in the pouring rain and realized that you didn’t lock your doors? You press the button on your factory remote and …… NOTHING HAPPENS!… You are too far away (If you drive a GM product, I know this has happened to you!). Factory remotes typically have about 50 – 100 feet of range (Most GM’s are lucky to have 50… No offense GM!).
Remote car starters, by nature, need to have a lot better range than 50 or 100 feet. That range is not only for starting, but for any other features that are hooked up to it. Our remote starters will allow you to lock your doors (or pop your trunk) from as far away as a mile! For you locals out there, that is about as far as the distance from McDonalds to the Mahoning Speedway!
If your car did not come equipped with power door locks, don’t panic! Mobile Edge can add them to almost any vehicle.
Quality Vehicle Security
Yup… I’ve heard this before too: “I already have a factory security system.” Are you aware of what that factory security system does? Not much really. It is a glorified starter kill in many cases. Most factory alarms do not have a shock sensor of any kind. A thief will potentially be stopped from stealing your car, but he can break the window and steal you iPod, your Garmin, your sunglasses and anything else that you have left in your car (Not the golf clubs!)
Mobile Edge offers an extremely secure remote start/security combo system. A high quality shock sensor will trip the alarm if a window is broken or a cylinder is punched. And this is the best part: If you have a 2 way system, you will be notified of the breach up to a mile away!
I covered heated seats in a previous post, but it bears repeating. All of our automatic car starters can interface with most factory heated seats. Simply remote start your car and then press an auxiliary button on your remote control. BAM!!! Your delicate posterior will be toasty warm seconds after hitting the seat! If you don’t have heated seats, Mobile Edge can add them!
Rear Window Defrost
One of the huge advantages of an automatic car starter is the fact that you can eliminate scraping your front and side windows. Simply leave your climate control set for High/Heat/Defrost. When you remotely start your car or truck, the heat will come on and blow across the front and side windows… No more scraping… Right?
Not necessarily. Your back window will not likely heat up enough to melt the back window of your vehicle. This is especially true on SUVs and minivans. We have an easy solution. Mobile Edge can interface with your rear window defrost circuit. Once again, start your vehicle and then hit an auxiliary button on the remote. Your rear window defrost comes alive and when you arrive at your car, you are ready to roll. Be sure to wave to the neighbor who is scraping his windows in 18 degree weather! LOL!
OK.. Your car is remote started and you get in and…………. GRRRRRRRRINNNNDDDD!!!!!! You turn the key too far and grind the starter! NOT COOL!
We have an easy solution for you. We call it Anti-Grind and it is a simple circuit in most vehicles. A couple of parts and a little wiring and you will never grind your starter again! Be sure to ask us about Anti-Grind when you stop in!
Did you ever lose your vehicle in a crowded parking garage or lot? Mobile Edge can solve that problem for good. When we install your remote start, we can hook up a circuit to your car’s horn. When you press a button on the remote, your horn will honk. That should make it easier to find, wouldn’t you say?
Other Convenience Features
Mobile Edge can integrate with the heated mirrors, memory seats, power windows and sunroof of most cars. The list of convenience features is about as long as your imagination. If you want it, chances are go that Mobile Edge can do it!
