Ralph’s Radio in Vancouver and Victoria offers a variety of remote starter options. From different styles of remotes to an extensive list of auxiliary features, our car starter solutions are customizable for the unique needs of our clients. This article will serve to explain what a remote starter can do, beyond just starting your car or truck.
Remote Starter Control Options
The Compustar remote car starters we offer have a variety of control solutions. Our simplest of systems includes the 1-BAM. This one-button, one-way remote makes starting your vehicle easy and offers up to 250 meters of range. The system integrates with your factory door locks for added convenience.
In the middle, we have solutions like the PRO G15 remote. This four-button remote includes two-way communication that verifies when commands from the remote are received and executed by the starter system. The four buttons provide direct access to locking, unlocking, starting and trunk release features. The PRO G15 provides almost 1 kilometer of range.
LCD Screen Remote Control
The PRO T11 is the epitome of what a remote starter remote can be. This two-way remote boasts 4.5km of available range and includes an LCD screen that displays the status of your vehicle. The PRO T11 is a perfect platform on which to build a hybrid starter and security system. The remote is shock and water-resistant and includes a built-in USB rechargeable battery that can be charged quickly and easily from any powered USB port.
Smartphone Remote Starter Options
Imagine boarding the SkyTrain at the airport and having the ability to remote start your car or truck as soon as your plane touches down at the airport. Likewise, you can be downtown in the Harbour Center and still start your car if it’s parked in the Cordova Street parkade. The DroneMobile smartphone communication system uses an app on your iPhone or Android-based smartphone along with a cellular interface in your vehicle to relay commands over any distance. Want to check the battery voltage in your vehicle while you’re on the beach in Mexico? No problem: Tap the information button in the app.
Vehicle Control Options
A remote car starter can do a lot more than just start your car. Almost every system we install includes door lock control and, in many vehicles, we can integrate trunk release functionality into the system. Automatic rear window defroster activation is a great feature for those cold winter mornings. We can also activate heated seats and a heated steering wheel with the same simplicity.
If your vehicle has a motorized tailgate or sliding door, we can program an auxiliary output from your starter to open it remotely.
Most vehicles with manual transmissions, diesel engines and hybrid drivetrains are compatible with our starter solutions. Cars, trucks and SUVs with keyless entry and push-to-start ignition systems will typically work with our solutions. For complete details on your specific vehicle and trim level, please speak with one of our product specialists.
