A common question we get at Enormis Mobile Specialties in Erie is about the difference between a one-way and a two-way remote start. That is a great question. Follow along with us as we provide the answer.
One-way Systems Work like Your Factory Keyless Entry System
If you have ever used a key fob to control the keyless entry system on your vehicle, you have used a one-way remote control. The term “one-way” defines the communication process. Your remote control “talks” to your vehicle in one direction. When you are remote starting your vehicle from home, this style system works just fine. Enormis has one-way systems in multiple levels of range, beginning with reusing your factory remote for systems with up to .6 miles of range, allowing you to warm up your vehicle in many spots, including while you’re at work, out to eat or shopping.
The downside of using a system with this technology is you don’t know if your vehicle has started when it is out of eyesight.
Two-way Remote Start Systems Give You Confirmation
The single biggest advantage of a two-way system is that it provides confirmation that your vehicle has carried out the command you have requested. Check out a two-way system in action:
Now, you may be thinking, “Why do I need this technology, since I’m only going to start my vehicle from home?” We hear this all the time. From experience, we can tell you that once you go out to a warm vehicle one time, you will never want to be cold again. And imagine walking out to your vehicle after it sat at work for hours and you didn’t have to scrape ice or snow off your windows like everyone else. Doesn’t that sound wonderful? We thought so.
In these instances, getting confirmation that your vehicle has started, is warming up the interior and is melting away any precipitation is a great benefit.
Our two-way systems are also available with increased range for even more opportunities to enjoy your remote start. Can’t get enough of the two-way goodness? Check out one more video:
Smartphone-based Systems Are the Ultimate in Convenience and Notification
If you are like most people and own an iPhone or Android phone, our Drone smartphone system may be perfect for you. Imagine having almost unlimited range. As long as the module we install in your vehicle can access cellular service and your phone can access cellular service, you have unlimited range. You can be out to dinner with friends in their vehicle. When you are 10 minutes from where you are parked, simply pull out your phone, fire up the Drone app and start it. Your vehicle will confirm back to the phone once it has started, and you are now on your way to a warm, cozy ride.
