Most car manufacturers are looking for ways to keep their vehicles selling. By implementing new features to a vehicle that provides increased convenience to the driver, more consumers are willing to make the purchase. While not extremely new to the market, keyless remotes are beneficial features to have on a vehicle. They provide convenience and enhance safety features, making it an ideal choice to invest in.
How it Works
Keyless remote systems are great to have. The system relies on two components which include the remote key and the receiver which is installed in the car. The remote has a chip built into it with unique coding that matches the coding in the receiver that is on the vehicle. With the push of a button on the remote, a specified function is performed, as long as the code matches. The remote can complete specific functions that might include: locking and unlocking, arming and disarming the alarm, opening and closing the trunk, and even starting the vehicle.
Many car owners find the keyless remote systems to be very convenient to use. For example, when coming back to your car with a handful of bags, trying to find the keyhole to open the door can be a pain. With keyless remotes however, you can easily command the vehicle to unlock and even have the trunk open for you. This allows you to have easy access to the car to place the bags in without fumbling around.
The good thing about keyless remotes is the improved safety it brings. Again, no need to fumble for your keys in the middle of the night, you can easily unlock and lock your vehicle from anywhere (within predetermined amount of feet away), and many automatic start features will not work with any remote. The engine requires an identifiable code which is only found in the remote you purchased the vehicle with. This is a huge deterrent for thieves.
Keyless remotes are now the new process when making vehicles. Therefore, if you’re in the market for a new vehicle, consider looking for one that has such features. While it may cost a bit more initially, the conveniences and safety features are well worth the investment.
