If you have driven those hi-tech cars, you know the joy that is associated with those smart remotes that come along with it. With these remotes, there is no need of fumbling in the pocket, for unlocking the door of the car. As long as you have a smart remote in your pocket, unlocking would happen automatically as soon as you approach the car or with a single press.
No matter what kind of vehicle is being driven, Bluetooth keyless remotes definitely offer a great experience. Just like other tech products, even car remotes have started relying on mobile phones. You have to pair them with the Bluetooth-enabled dongle and the process is extremely easy. However, like other gadgets, even this product has to be installed professionally, to avoid hassles. Once everything is done properly, you will reap many benefits!
Usually, there are 2 versions of Bluetooth keyless entries i.e. premium and standard. Although both are identical, the differences still exist.
- In the premium version, the low-energy iteration is used. This is good, since because Bluetooth can consume a lot of energy and can suck the battery in no time.
- These premium versions would work well with smartphones and also have a mobile app for Android and iOS. With this, the user can have interaction with the vehicle in real time.
- The notification system of the smartphone is also used in the premium version; important messages are sent to the driver in case of events.
- This version shows compatibility with over 1 cell phone and is quite handy for all households.
Just like every technology, even these systems have their own drawbacks. Imagine what would happen if you forget the smartphone at home itself? There would be no way to unlock the car, except if you have a car key handy with you. But this surely would cause great troubles to you.
Now, if we see a large array of things, we will realize that these smartphone remotes don’t offer anything new; i.e. they just give incremental improvements, not exponential ones. This is what we term as ‘Gap technology’.
