remote car starters
The following article lists some simple, informative tips that will help you have a better experience with remote starters.
Aftermarket remote start systems for cars seem very popular. You press a button on your keychain before leaving home or the office, and your car will be nice 'n warm by the time you're ready to use it. Nice feature, eh? Well, it would hardly work at, say, the mall.
My idea proposes a way to start your vehicle from an almost unlimited distance. And it wouldn't cost very much more than existing systems either. Wha'd'ya think "old school" Motorola pagers go for these days?
Merely link a pager to the remote start system. Then, from any phone (for example, your cell), you could "page" your car. Upon receipt, the car would start. Voila.
That's the basic model. The "deluxe" model would let you send actual numbers to your car. You could start it and then turn on the heat, or a/c, or seat warmers. The list is endless. It's raining? Send the code to close all the windows and sunroof - just in case. It's been stolen? Or merely misplaced? Page it to sound the alarm. Or to disable itself.
Once you begin to move beyond basic background information, you begin to realize that there's more to remote starters than you may have first thought.
And none of these would be limited by distance from the vehicle! =)
(Of course, you'll have to be incredibly careful with that pager's number; this could give new meaning to "crank starting" a car)
As your knowledge about remote starters continues to grow, you will begin to see how remote starters fits into the overall scheme of things. Knowing how something relates to the rest of the world is important too.
