Remote starts are excellent for cold winter days when a customer wants to get into a warm car. There are many benefits to using or installing remote starts in vehicles.
The first benefit is for comfort. It is comforting to have a car that is warm or cool before the customer gets into the vehicle. By leaving the heater or the air conditioning on a driver can activate the remote starter then wait several minutes for the car to warm up. Since the vehicle is running most remote starters include controls for locking the doors to secure the car as well.
There is also a safety benefit to having a remote starter. By allowing an icy car to warm up before driving it is easier to scrape or defrost the windows which results in greater visibility for the driver and passengers. Warming the vehicle also melts snow and ice that can obstruct the headlights or the brake lights making the vehicle more visible to other drivers especially in snowy or icy conditions.
Engine care is also a benefit to having a remote start. Warming the vehicle before driving is beneficial for the engine. For the heating system to start producing warm air the engine must first warm up as it runs. Since the vehicle idles for several minutes before being driven the engine oil provides better lubrication once the driver is ready to go. This period where the vehicle is warming up is especially beneficial for cars or truck that run off diesel however gas engines also benefit from having a remote start.
When the customer buys a vehicle with a remote start or gets one installed it will increase the resale value. If the customer lives in an area with rough climate conditions then the remote start will have a greater resale value. It will be an extremely useful selling point when looking for a new vehicle.
Remote Starts work by the push of a button. From outside the vehicle press a button or two depending which kind of remote start and your ignition will start. The vehicle will remain locked until the driver unlocks the vehicle. The remote starter can also turn off the ignition as the customer wishes. The brake pedal can also act as a way to turn the engine off. Remote Starts can include a complete security system with alarm, two way alarm notification, a different frequency each time the remote is used, and the ability to transmit up to a mile and through concrete walls.
