Florida is a state of constantly changing weather conditions. Like they say, “If you don’t like the weather in Florida, wait 5 minutes, it will change”. We, in Lake City, know what its like to have cold, warm and rain all in one day. One way to help reduce the effect of the weather on your day-to-day life is with the help of a remote start system. We are lucky that we don’t have to worry with scraping ice off of our windows, or thawing out the snow that might have accumulated on our cars. We do, though, experience some extreme temperature swings. Having a remote car starter can help keep you comfortable in your vehicle, regardless of the outside temperature. We have experience installing remote car starters in practically every major brand of car on the road today. Whether you drive a American car, an Import car, or a European car, we can fit remote start systems to almost any of them.
Remote Car Starter Safety
We are often times asked about the safety of a remote car starter system. Let’s take a look at the vast array of safety features offered in every remote starter we sell:
Engine RPM Monitoring
Our systems keep a close eye on engine RPM. The systems monitors the engine speed and will instantly shut down the vehicle if the engine speed rises higher than an idle. This protects the engine, and also the vehicle from potential theft.
Foot Brake Engine Disable
Wired into the remote starter system is a wire that monitors the foot brake position. If the foot brake is pressed the system instantly shuts down. This gives you great peace of mind from a number of possible scenarios. Most importantly, if someone were to break into the vehicle while it was remote started, the first thing they would need to do would be to depress the brake pedal to put the car in drive. The instant the pedal is pressed, they are out of luck, the vehicle stops!
The remote starter system ties into the vehicle door locks. The system keeps the doors locked, while the vehicle is running, until the driver unlocks the doors. This ensures no one enters the vehicle accidentally while it is remote started.
Hood Position Monitoring
Vehicles are becoming more and more reliable. Other than the routine oil change, it is very seldom that a good vehicle has to be worked on. In the event of an oil change or mechanical repair, the hood position is monitored by the remote start system. If the hood is open, the system cannot start. This protects the system from accidentally starting if someone were to be working on the engine. In addition, we install a warning sticker under the hood of each vehicle we install a remote starter in. The sticker alerts the mechanic that a remote starter system is installed on the vehicle.
