Remotely Heat or Cool Your Car
Lakeland’s Tunes-N-Tint installs remote starter systems that allow you to remotely start and run your vehicle from the comfort of your home or office. Simply press the button on a key fob transmitter or use an app on your smartphone and your car’s engine starts to begin heating or cooling your interior so when you’re ready to go, the vehicle is a comfortable temperature. Starting the engine before you drive also allows it to warm up and circulate the lubricants, which helps to extend the life of the engine. Tunes-N-Tint offers many remote starter systems and we work on all types of vehicles from classics to modern, including all the newest ‘push-to-start’ vehicles lacking a traditional key and using a push button starter on the dash. Our skilled and MECP certified technicians also install remote starters on motorcycles, in semi-trucks, delivery vehicles and other commercial applications. Our expert technicians ensure we perform a safe and reliable installation to the highest standards for your remote starter.
At Tunes-N-Tint we advocate for safe installation of any mobile electronic products we offer. Remote starters installed at Tunes-N-Tint have numerous safety features to ensure when your vehicle is started remotely, it’s not during any questionable or dangerous situations. For instance, the system monitors the engine compartment and if the hood is open, the remote starter will not start the engine in case there are hands/arms in the engine area (such as from a mechanic). If someone accidently activates the remote starter, it’d be bypassed in that instance.
Our safety protocols also monitor the foot brake, ignition switch, doors, engine RPM, run time of the motor, battery voltage and many other circuits to ensure the remote starter only starts the vehicle during normal (safe) conditions. Should someone enter the vehicle without an authorized key, the engine shuts down as soon as the brake pedal is pressed to place the car into gear.
New cars with complex transponder keys and special proximity remote key fobs (often called “smart keys”), are no problem for the expert technicians at Tunes-N-Tint. We offer the latest technologies that interface into coded keys so that your vehicle remote starts correctly and allow your factory-supplied keys to take over once you’ve entered the vehicle to drive away. It’s a seamless and proven approach for even the most complex ignition systems. At Tunes-N-Tint, our MECP certified installation technicnas know remote starter integration like no one else.
Remote starter systems offered at Tunes-N-Tint have a wide variety of choices for control. 1-way and 2-way key fob transmitters are both available, as well as extended range transmitter/receivers to enhance the usable range for remote starting the vehicle. With a 2-way extended range key fob transmitter, coverage distances of a quarter-mile or more are possible. The advantage of a 2-way transmitter is that it provides visual and/or audible confirmation of the remote start command with lights or icons on the transmitter screen. Additional optional features such as doors locked (or unlocked), interior temperature and remote starter run time are also possible to display on many 2-way transmitter systems.
For the ultimate in extended range, use a smartphone to control your remote car starter system. Using a brand-specific app, the remote car starter or other connected accessories (such as door locks, trunk release, etc.) can be controlled by the smartphone and activate the vehicle anywhere there is a cellular data signal. You can even get GPS location and status reports on your vehicle through the smartphone. Hardware for the cellular data receiver is installed in the vehicle and provides the interface for the remote starter and smartphone. Ask any one of our knowledgeable sales experts at Tunes-N-Tint for a demonstration.
You can also combine a remote starter with a vehicle security system to control from the same remote. Arm/disarm the system as you lock/unlock doors and control the remote starter all conveniently from the same key fob or smartphone app.
One of the core value propositions of Tunes-N-Tint installing your remote starter system is the high quality standards of our installations. We solder all of our wire-to-wire connections so that all of the computer-controlled functionality in your vehicle that must also work when remote starting is completely seamless and reliable. This ensures your car knows no difference of whether you started it by remote or with the key. We neatly loom all wiring and hide or blend any under hood wiring to appear as factory installed. Our lifetime warranty on installation labor shows how we stand behind the work we do. It’s just one more reason to let Tunes-N-Tint install your next remote car starter.
