Kingpin Car & Marine Audio has seen remote starters continue to grow in popularity, and for good reason. Once anyone has been in a vehicle with a remote start installed, they love it. Being able to warm your vehicle up in the winter and cool it off in the summer is a great convenience. What many people don’t know is that remote starters come in two distinctly different styles, known as one-way and two-way remote starter systems. Let’s explore the differences.
One-Way Remote Starter Systems
One-way systems have been around as long as the remote control. A one-way system refers to the communication between the remote and the vehicle. You push a button on your remote and it communicates with the vehicle in one direction. For some people, this technology is going to be fine, especially if price is an important consideration. We have systems with ranges that are designed to start your vehicle from home to systems with ranges of up to a mile away, so we are sure to have a solution that will work for you.
Two-Way Remote Starter Systems
Two-way systems came on the market years ago but have really grown in popularity over the last three years. The difference in technology is two-way communication with the vehicle. Whatever you ask the vehicle to do, the system will confirm back to your remote control once it has accomplished that command.
You may be asking yourself, “Why would I ever need this feature? I only plan to use my remote starter from the driveway and I can see my vehicle out the window.” That is a great question. Here is what we find from our clients. Once you go out to a warmed-up vehicle one time, you are hooked, and you definitely want scraping ice off the windows to become a distant memory.
What all this means to you is pretty simple. You are going to love the convenience, and chances are you are going to use that remote starter in many different places over the course of your week. In many of these places, you will not be in sight of your vehicle, so having the confirmation to the remote that your vehicle has started is great for peace of mind.
We Offer Many Different Two-Way Systems
Our two-way systems at Kingpin Car & Marine Audio come in several different ranges and button configurations, so we are sure to have one that will fit your needs. In fact, Compustar just released a ground-breaking system called the T11 that has three times the range of the competition. If you are looking for the ultimate in convenience, this system may be the one for you.
If you are the kind of person who likes the added security of a vehicle alarm, our two-way systems will alert you to any threat detected by the alarm, possibly allowing you to prevent a serious issue.
Here is another scenario to consider. When you get out of your vehicle, your phone rings. As you are walking away, you realize that you don’t remember whether you locked the doors. There is no need to turn around. Just push the button on your two-way system. It will lock the doors and confirm it back to you. You simply keep on walking.
