You Did What with Your Phone?

Yeah. That's what you'll be hearing when you install the Viper VSS3001 SmartStart remote start system in your ride. Imagine there's no remotes. It isn't hard to do. No need for fobs or keyrings, just integrate your phones. Imagine all the people, staring in disbelief as you start your car from your phone with the push of a button... You may say we're all crazy, but we're not the only ones. We hope someday you'll join us, and alarms and phones will live as one. No really, you can completely integrate your Smartphone with your alarm and do everything a keychain remote could do but through your phone instead. So lose the remote and step into the 21st century with a Smartphone integration remote start car alarm!

Great Remote Start System

November 5, 2014

I installed this system on my 2013 Hyundai Genesis sedan and couldn't be more pleased! I went with this system because it includes a DBALL2Pro module which allows you to start your car by pressing the lock button 3 times from your FACTORY remote as well as your cell phone. I was worried once the car started that the lock/unlock features and the proximity lock/unlock wouldn't work from my Hyundai remote but I was thrilled to learn everything worked! I was disappointed that Viper/Directed Electronics couldn't tell me for sure that all those features would work ahead of time. I took a chance installing it and it paid off. I would absolutely recommend this system, very impressed!!
