Remote car starters are like anything else on the market, constantly evolving. Because of this, the starter you installed five years ago may work okay but may not be offering everything you require. Upgrading your remote starter is not something that most vehicle owners think about, but we’re here to tell you why you should.
One-way is a thing of the past
No one likes having a one-sided conversation. So, why would you want a one-way remote? Although this method of communication is what many of us know, technologies have introduced us to bigger and better. With the 1-way remote starter, you hit the button and hope for the best. If your vehicle happens to be in viewing distance, you have the visual confirmation that your action is in motion.
However, especially with long-range starters, a 1-way remote can quickly prove less than ideal. Imagine this – you’re getting ready to leave work on the coldest day of the year. On the way in, there was precipitation, which has undoubtedly frozen over. You’ve pushed the fantastic remote starter, knowing that your vehicle will be warm, de-iced, and you’ll be on your way home in less than twenty minutes. Until you walk outside and notice that the transmission failed.
Your car is not started, and it’s covered in a sheet of ice, oh joy.
Enter the 2-way remote. Not only does this innovative remote transmit directly to your vehicle, but it also returns a confirmation to you. Long-range, 2-way LED validation in the palm of your hand to bring peace of mind and get you to your destination on time. Although some remotes vary, a 2-way typically provides both visual and audio confirmation that your vehicle is started.
Let’s go back to the topic of range
While short-range works for some, for others, it’s a source of frustration. Whether you reside or work in a building that is far from where you park, the purpose of the remote starter is to get your vehicle running – before you get there. With today’s innovations, you can have confidence that this will happen with long-range remote car starters.
Whether winter or summer, remote car starters come in handy in New England. And, at Speed of Sound, we have the various solutions fit for your needs and budgets.

In this article, we’re taking a look at why the off-season may be a better choice for having your starter installed.
Beat the Rush
Remote starter season is right around the corner, and you don’t want to be stuck waiting in line. As the cold weather makes its way into New England, people are beginning to think about the several benefits of having a remote starter. From creature comforts to deicing the windshield, remote starters may also help you locate your vehicle in large parking lots while increasing your vehicle’s safety features. The benefits are wide, but, come October, vehicle owners can expect longer wait times.
As a premier shop for car starter installation, Speed of Sound averages 700 installations between October and January!
Car Starter Installation isn’t Just for Winter
Although the primary installation season is during the winter months, there are several benefits of owning a remote starter during the summer. With several hot days still ahead, not only can you beat the rush, but you can use the benefits of your car starter now!
Let’s face it; there is not one person out there who enjoys burning their legs or arms on the interior of their vehicle. Remote starters are a perfect way to cool hot leather seats and filter out stale, dead air from your vehicle before entering. So, not only will you save your skin, but you’ll create a welcoming atmosphere just as you would in the winter – but opposite. Yin and yang.
It’s Back to School season
Last, but certainly not least, we want to touch upon the fact that several students are headed back to school this time of year. College campuses are huge, the parking lots even bigger. Likewise – you can even relate this to several jobs that require employees to utilize a parking garage or massive parking lot.
With a remote starter, not only can you cool down (or warm up) your vehicle before you get there, but you can also increase the security options. Many remote systems integrate seamlessly or provide their own security system. Although the engine is running, the vehicle is inoperable without the physical key. If a break-in were attempted, an alarm would sound and the vehicle would shut down when a pedal is pressed.
