Remote car starters are a wonderful addition to any vehicle, and Ralph’s Radio has been selling and installing them for as long as the category has existed. When you come to Ralph’s looking for a remote start, you will find that we do things differently from most other shops. Our highly trained staff will spend time getting to know you and your vehicle, learning how you use it on a daily basis. Do you use it for work? How about school? Is it the vehicle that gets used to shuttle your children to all of their weekly activities? We take all of these things into consideration when offering you a solution because we want you to have a product that best suits your needs.
How Do Your Use Your Vehicle?
One of the most important questions to consider is this: In an average week, what is the farthest you will be from your vehicle? Will it be when it is at work, school, a store, out to dinner or maybe at church? In a perfect scenario, you want to buy a remote car starter that can work from any of these environments. We say this because once you go out to a vehicle that is warm in the winter and cool in the summer thanks to your remote starter, you will want that convenience everywhere you drive. Ralph’s stocks a complete selection of units, so we are sure to have one that best suits you.
Remote starters come with three basic technologies.
One-way systems work like the factory keyless entry system already in your vehicle, meaning they have one-way communication with the vehicle. These systems are more reasonably priced and come in basic, start-your-vehicle-from-home systems to longer-range systems that will work when you are out and about.
Two-way systems take convenience to the next level. Whatever you ask the starter to do is confirmed back to your remote control once the command is executed. If you are out to eat on a chilly evening and out of sight of your vehicle, you will know it has started and is warming up because your remote will alert you that it has started. Our higher-end systems even include temperature sensors so you can check the temperature in your vehicle and know how long the engine needs to run to make the vehicle comfortable inside.
Smartphone-based systems harness the power of the Internet and the processing power of your phone to give you the ultimate in convenience and control. As long as your phone has Internet access and the system we install in your vehicle can access the Internet, you can start or monitor it from anywhere in the world. You even have the option of adding real-time GPS tracking to our smartphone systems so you can monitor your vehicle status from the convenience of your phone. For the ultimate in security and peace of mind, adding an alarm system to your remote start allows you to be notified right to your phone if someone tampers with your vehicle.
Options For Our Remote Car Starters
Popular options for your remote starter include activating your rear window defogger, and one or more of your heated seats, and disabling the wiper system to protect the wipers from damage should you leave them on the night before an ice storm.
