Remote Start & Auto Alarms
If you want to protect your vehicle and it's contents, we carry high security Car Alarms (some available with Remote Start). We offer a wide variety of options, from easy-to-use basic set-ups to Remote Starts and Alarms that use your smart-phone to start your car or notify you of break-ins.
Remote Start Systems
Remote start systems are one of the most popular add-ons we sell. Whether it’s 6 degrees with a wind-chill of 20 below or it’s 102 degrees in the shade, the thought of walking out and entering a car that is warm and toasty or crisp and cool is, let’s face it…, extremely desirable. Remote Start Systems can now be easily added to virtually any automobile. The user controls the remote start system using a tiny remote which sends a very specific signal to the equipment installed inside the vehicle. This signal is generally encrypted, preventing someone else from copying it and using it to control your car. When the signal is received, the vehicle’s starter is engaged starting the car where any climate controls (if left operating from the previous journey) will begin to function either heating or cooling the car. A flash of the car lights is provided as a visual cue that a command has been received and the vehicle is running.
These systems can also work with you factory keyless entry to lock and unlock the doors. Before entering the car, the driver must still unlock the car and then place the key into the ignition switch. A quick turn of the key will let the system know the driver is present. As a security measure the brake pedal will act as a kill switch for the engine if the key has not been turned.
We have several remote options available to choose from. We carry easy-to-use single button or 4-button systems. These are one-way remotes that send commands to your system only. We have two-way remotes with small screens on them. These two-way remotes receive a signal back from the vehicle to confirm start, stop, lock and unlock functions. We carry remote start systems that use your smartphone to control and verify functions from virtually anywhere your phone can get a signal.
Car Alarm Systems
Most vehicles nowadays have a factory security system built into them. If you open the doors without using the proper key, the car starts honking and it disconnects the starter. That's pretty much it. Some folks want better protection than that.
Our alarms cover more than just a door being opened without a factory key. Some of the additional sensing devices available on our auto security systems include:
All of our alarms are equipped with shock sensors. These trigger the alarm when there is an impact to the vehicle (like a window being broken or another car bumps you). Intruders generally don't hang out when an alarm is sounding.
Dual-Zone Proximity Sensors (optional)
This type of sensor triggers your alarm when a high-density object (like a tool or a hand) enters the cabin of your vehicle. The second zone of this dual-zone sensor is designed to chirp when someone enters a warning zone just outside your vehicle. This lets people that get too close know that the vehicle is armed with an alarm and that they should stay away from it.
Tilt Sensors (optional)
Tilt sensors detect when the horizontal angle of your vehicle changes. This can happen when a tow truck raises either end of the vehicle or if a vehicle is being jacked up to steal rims and tires.
Trunk and Hood Pin Switches (optional)
These are switches that trigger an armed alarm when the trunk or hood is opened.
Remote choices for our car alarms include 4-button, 2-Way and smartphone control. All of our alarms include the convenience of keyless entry (if vehicle is equipped with power locks). Many alarms are also equipped with remote start.
Vehicle Tracking Systems
Want to monitor a vehicle being used by family or employees from your smart-phone or PC? By utilizing GPS, you can check your vehicle's location and speed and find out mileage driven. You can get alerts when it's being towed or goes beyond set boundaries. You can keep track out all of this plus much more with a Vehicle Tracking system from Car-Fi.
