Many of our clients come to us looking for presents for their loved ones. We are often asked about the possibility of using a remote start system as a gift. Our response is “Remote Start Systems make a GREAT gift!”.
Remote Start System Purchasing Basics
Back in the early days of mobile electronics adding a remote starter was just a matter of cutting and soldering some wires to a remote starter brain. Newer vehicles these days use computer systems to optimize engine performance and efficiency. Adding in a remote start system requires interfacing with the vehicle computers. As a result we often times have to use an interface module. These modules vary depending on the vehicle. Because of the different modules and associated wiring, one of the key questions we will ask for someone purchasing a remote start system is “What is the Make Model and Year of the Vehicle”.
Remote Start System Range
The next important question to purchasing a remote starter is how the system will be used. The important question is “What is the absolute maximum distance the remote start system would ever be used at?”. We offer traditional remote systems that vary in range from 500ft to 2 miles. For those wanting even further range we offer the DroneMobile add-on from Compustar. The DroneMobile system interfaces with your smartphone via an app and gives you full control of locking/unlocking and starting the vehicle from anywhere you and the vehicle have cell service.
Remote Start System Options
After the question of remote range is answered the next step in the qualification process is what sort of options will be needed. We offer systems that can work with push-to-start ignition systems, diesel engines, manual transmissions and more. In addition we can often integrate with heated or cooled seats, trunk open and close and liftgate control. If peace of mind is also desired, our remote start systems can be upgraded with security features, making it an even better gift!
Remote Start Systems as a Gift
Often our clients that are buying a remote start system as a gift are prepared to answer the qualifying questions. If so, we have a number of ways the system can be gifted. The most basic is to purchase the parts and installation. The parts can be wrapped and given as a present and then the recipient can call to schedule an appointment for the installation. For those a bit more adventurous, we have another option. Because all of the remote start system components are hidden, we can pre-install the system if the vehicle is accessible. The remotes can be wrapped for giving and then once opened, the recipient can have full use of the system. The final option is the safest. We offer gift cards for those who are not quite sure what the best remote start gift would be. The cards can be given as the gift and then an appointment can be made to review the options available. The gift recipient can select the system that is perfect for them.
