Key Factors For Choosing And Installing A Remote Start System

by Genesis Williamson

Remote start is a convenient addition to any vehicle. It allows you to warm your car's interior in the winter and cool it in the summer, all before you ever have to get into it. However, many people find themselves confused about these accessories. If you have been thinking about installing a remote start system in your car, here's a look at some things that you should know.

Consider The Transmission Range

One thing that many people overlook when buying a remote start system is the transmission range of the remote. If you buy a system with a 500-foot range, for example, it isn't going to do you any good if your car is parked across the street in a parking garage.

If your vehicle is always parked in your driveway or nearby, even when you are at work, this isn't as much of a concern. However, if your car is often some distance away, you may want to look at remote start models with a greater range. There are models that will transmit up to a mile away. 

Incorporate Keyless Entry

When you install a remote start system on a car with factory keyless entry, you might find that the keyless entry system won't work on your car when the remote start is running. That's why many people opt for a remote start system with keyless entry incorporated. That way, you can still use your keyless entry controls to get in and out of your car without worry.

Explore Added Features

Remote start systems have come a long way since their breakthrough on the market. While there are still some models that are simply remote start and stop, there are many models now with added features incorporated.

For example, you can opt for a remote start system that will also allow you to activate your car's heated seats, window defrosters, and more. Consider the features that came with your vehicle and look for a remote start system that will give you greater control over these features as well.

Have A Professional Install The Unit

If you're going to buy a remote start system, it's in your best interest to invest in professional installation as well. Remote start systems are directly wired to the car's wiring harness and ignition system. These connections must be done properly. Additionally, if you have a warranty, professional installation may be required to preserve that warranty. Talk with your remote start retailer about installation services to ensure that your system is properly and safely installed.
