Remote starter functionality is no longer limited to high-end luxury vehicles. They have become the norm for newer cars. Your old trusted vehicle doesn’t have to be left out, though, just because it’s a few years old. Aftermarket remote starters like MoboKey can be easy to install and work just as well, if not better, than those offered by car manufacturers. Albeit the ease of access, a question still arises how secure is your car with a remote starter?

How secure is your car with a remote starter?

The security of a car is the key element while designing a remote starter.

The engine and doors lock automatically, once you activate security the engine via app or remote. It is to make sure that no one can get inside the car. With the security activated in the MoboKey app, they can’t start the car even with the key. Moreover, most remote models can set a time for the engine to stop if the key isn’t inserted into the car.

Other remotes are designed to stop the engine instantly if one of the pedals is hit, but the key isn’t inserted (which happens if a stranger manages to get in the car).

How can you use MoboKey proximity features?

With the Mobokey app, you can set proximity start and stop ranges. Using Proximity, Mobokey allows the user to remove the hassle of carrying car keys. Once you come near to the car will automatically connect with your phone and with start the car if you are moving towards the car and once you move away from the car, it will automatically shut it down. In order to set the proximity for your car, you will have to follow these steps.

Before setting the proximity, set up the antenna at the correct position. Setting the antenna is fairly simple. There are two places where you can set the antenna. The following are the possible places.

  1. On the side panel of the door window
  2. On the windscreen

How to Set Proximity?

After setting up the account on MoboKey App and connecting the car, click on the hamburger button on the top left of the screen. On the side, the menu selects Car Profile.

Go to Car Settings -> Proximity 

How Proximity works in Turn-Key Start

In turn-key start cars, Mobokey can turn on ACC, Power, and even start the car as well.

As it is evident from the screen, the user can switch all the three options with a tap.

With Proximity on, when the user approaches the car, it automatically starts.

Once the user moves away from the car, it stops automatically.

The screen shows how you can set the proximity ranges in the Mobokey app.

The ranges can be set as per the requirement of the user. When set to near the car unlocks when the phone is near to the car and when set too far, the car unlocks when the phone is far!

How Proximity works in Push Start cars

In push-start cars, the functionality is a little different from the turnkey cars.

In this case, the smart key is activated and deactivated, depending upon the user position.

With Proximity on, when the user approaches the car, it automatically activates the push start button.

Once the user moves away from the car, it deactivates automatically, making the car more secure.

Users can still remotely start a push start car, by pressing the button on the app!
