With the holiday season quickly approaching, buying your family members or loved ones a remote starter as a gift is easy when you shop at Driven Sound and Security in Negaunee. Whether you need a simple one-button system or a fully loaded, two-way remote with LCD and miles of range, we will help you choose the features and range to ensure that the recipient can start their car before and after they leave work or school.
Getting the Right Remote Car Starter
Choosing the right remote for the starter system you buy is crucially important to make sure the system works when the button is pushed. Where most factory remote keyless entry systems offer only 40 to 60 feet of range, our remote start options provide between 800 feet and an awe-inspiring 3 miles of range. If the owner works in a large building or lives in an apartment, they will need this extra range to ensure their car or truck can be started long before they get to the vehicle. We also offer DroneMobile, a smartphone-based control system that uses cellular communication to provide an effectively unlimited range to your starter. You could be on the beach in Mexico and still be able to make sure your car, truck or SUV is locked and secure.
Shopping for the Perfect Remote Starter
If you are shopping for a remote starter as a gift, there are three ways to proceed to make sure everything turns out the way you want. We’ll need to know the exact year, make, model and trim level of the vehicle to accurately determine the right vehicle interface solution. Or if you aren’t 100 percent sure, it would be best to bring the car to the shop so we can check it out in person. If you aren’t sure about the vehicle or can’t bring it to us, we offer gift certificates that you can give as a gift to pay for the starter.
Remote Starter Options
We’ll also want to talk about the options available with our starter systems. In almost every case, we can control the vehicle door locks, so the starter acts as a keyless entry system. We can also control most electronic trunk release systems remotely. If the vehicle has a power tailgate or motorized sliding side doors, controlling them is also an option. In many cases, we can activate the rear window defroster, heated seats or a heated steering wheel automatically when the temperature inside the vehicle is below a predetermined temperate. If the vehicle doesn’t have heated seats, we can add OEM-quality seat heaters in most instances.
