If you have decided to equip your vehicle with remote start capability, here are a few tips to keep in mind:


1. Where should you purchase one?
A reputable automotive technology retailer is the best place to begin. Remote start components require experienced, professional installation, and an authorized retailer/installer will know the product, stand by their work and ensure that you are completely satisfied with your experience. You might find a great deal on eBay, but you might also be left out in the cold when it comes to installation, warranty and the expertise that comes from an authorized dealer.

2. Compatibility
Although most remote start systems are compatible with most vehicles, you still need to be sure. At times, additional parts may be required for proper operation. An authorized retailer will know what you need, and is certified in the installation process to guarantee your product will work flawlessly.

3. Features
Remote start components have a wide variety of features. Some will just start you car and unlock the doors, while others may be integrated with security features such as alarm systems and bi-directional data. Do you want to start you car from the kitchen window or from the 5th floor on your office building? There are also many options concerning range, and some models allow you to start your engine from an iPhone or Android smartphone – even if you are miles away from your vehicle.

4. Installation
That bargain you found on Amazon will not include installation, and that is a major concern. Most retailers will not install a product purchased online or elsewhere because they cannot guarantee the quality and functionality of the product. It would be like buying your food online and asking a restaurant to prepare it for you. You might be hard pressed to find someone who is willing to install it and even if you do, there is no guarantee that everything will come together as it should.

When you have a toothache, you go to a dentist. When it comes to a remote car starter, you need to go to a retailer who knows what they’re doing. The staff and installers at Communications Center have sold and installed countless remote starters, so things will get done right.
