If you live some place where it gets really cold in the winter — you might already be familiar with the advantages and convenience of a remote-start car system. Rather than fumbling to open an icy door or waiting a few minutes for the car to start and the heat to come on, you can start the car using a key-remote and even turn the heat on, so that by the time you get to the car, it’s on and warm.
SmartStart Car Starter | Start Your Car With a Mobile Map
Directed Electronics, maker of the popular Viper remote start systems, are taking remote-start to another level: start your car with your smartphone. The Viper SmartStart system combines the Viper system with an app that acts as a remote control for your car.
Here’s how the system works: if you have a compatible Viper remote system installed on your car, you can download a free app and configure your car to hook up to your phone. Then, you can start your car and turn on the heat before you head out to the driveway. The Viper app can also lock your car (or unlock it) remotely too.
The advantage of the smartphone app over the traditional key-remotes is that the range is much larger than what you get with IR. I’m assuming the system works via satellite, because Viper calls it “virtually unlimited.” This would definitely be convenient for anyone who has a relative or a spouse with a predilection for locking their keys in the car. If you like the idea of keyless entry and remote-start, bringing that sort of functionality to a smartphone makes perfect sense.
