Long Range Remotes
The long range remotes (LRR) are an excellent accessory for the remote start system as simply put, the range is far greater (plus you have a spare remote to access your car). There are two methods to remote start the vehicle – either with the OEM keyfob or with the long range remote keyfob
We always reccomend that the long range remotes are there to complement the factory OEM key and not replace it. All long range remote controls can remote start/stop the vehicle, unlock/lock the doors, and can allow the car to be driven away, however, only the remote engine start/stop features remains active 24/7. The lock/unlock feature only works once the car has been remote started using the long range remote and stops working when the remote start has been turned off.
We would highly reccomend the long range remotes as they have mutiple uses, can be used as a replacement car key in an emergency but most of all operate over a much greater distance than the standard OEM factory keyfob.
One way long range remotes communicate with your vehicle to initiate remote start, but do not communicate back to the long range remote to confirm that the vehicle has started.
Two Way long range remotes page back to your remote after the vehicle has successfully started. The remote will beep to confirm successful communication and an LED will also light up to display the vehicle has started.
