Remote starts add more than just comfort! Here are the top 5 reasons to get a remote start this year:

#5. Heat your seats from inside your nice warm house! Just a click of the button, and you can begin your drive in comfort!
#4. No more scraping the windshield! Have your defroster do your dirty work.
#3. Never lose your car in a crowded lot again! (Not that it happens to you, of course..)
#2. Up your security system. Remote start/ alarm packages make locking and arming your car a breeze.
And #1. Improve your mood! If your car is warm, your kids are happy. If your kids are happy, you are happy!­čśü

Aftermarket Alarm Systems:

Alarm-it Kit

  • The ALARMIT KIT includes a DAS 3-in-1 sensor that adds the following security features to your vehicle: dual-stage shock detection, tilt sensing, and accelerometer.
  • The alarm siren included in the ALARMIT KIT features a speaker that gets as loud as 105+dB; capable of scaring away intruders and alerting those nearby.
  • The E-LOCK relay included in the ALARMIT KIT functions as a “starter-kill”, which prevents your vehicle from being driven while your security system is armed; thus preventing auto-theft/carjacking.

Why we love our products:

We take pride in offering the best products on the market. After many years of installing different brands of remote starts, we have come to appreciate a few brands in particular: Compustar, iDatalink, and Eurostart. We stand by the quality of these products with our lifetime warranty on both the installation and the remote starter.

Our remote starters offer flexibility:  upgrade your remotes to extend range, utilize two way paging, or opt for cell phone integration with DRONE mobile. All of these upgrades can be added at any time.

Give us a call today to ask about the Compustar or Eurostart lineup or schedule your remote start installation!

Basic Remote Start Packages

 Starting at $299 installed with factory keyfob integration

Utilizing the factory fob is an option for most newer vehicles- but not all. Please call to confirm.

Pro: All of your control is in one fob. No need to carry extra pieces.

Con: The of the remote start is limited to the range you currently have with your factory fob.

If you’re looking for longer range (1,500 ft or more) then adding an aftermarket fob is the way to go.

1 – button, 1 – way Compustar keyfob:

This basic fob allows for 1,500 ft of range, and can be programmed to start, stop, lock, and unlock your vehicle.

 

Available for an add-on to your remote start package for $49

 

How to use your 1 – button 1 – way fob:

Press once to lock, twice to unlock, and hold for 4 seconds to start ( the little blinking lock symbol will change from green to red to indicate that it received your input). To stop the remote start, press and hold button for 4 seconds again.

 

 

1 – button or 4 – button 2 – way Compustar keyfob:

Our 2 – way remotes offer assurance that your car has received your command and has remote started. This can be especially useful if you park far from your home or workplace. They offer 3,000 ft of range and will alert you when your vehicle starts and stops.

available as an add-on for $129

Drone Mobile:

The most powerful device for controlling and tracking your vehicle is already in your pocket! DroneMobile connects your vehicle to your smartphone – so that you can remote start, secure, and track your vehicle from anywhere with cell phone service. The app will alert you whenever your vehicle has been started, stopped, locked or unlocked. Higher subscription levels allow for GPS tracking of your vehicle as well.

Drone Mobile is subscription based, and offers a free 30 day trial.

4 levels available, starting at $3.99 per month

Drone is available as an add-on for $149

 

Use a T-Harness:

Although not necessary for a clean, factory looking remote start installation (as is our standard), T-harnesses can offer less splicing of wires and an easily removable remote start installation. They are vehicle specific to integrate into your factory system. This is a good plug-and-play option for leased vehicles, or for those wishing to maintain the factory integrity of their vehicles.

Additional remote starters available!

Nearly every vehicle is compatible with aftermarket remote starts, but some require much more work and additional parts.

Speak to our technician for the best option for your vehicle.
