What is luxury remote smart entry?
Keyless remote entry on a vehicle, sometimes referred to as passive entry, provides a variety of life-changing benefits. The most significant perk of keyless entry is the convenience it provides. Depending on the version of keyless entry installed on your car, you can be loaded down with groceries and still get the hatch open with a wave of your foot. Just press the button and go, no more struggling to insert the key into the door lock. The better security keyless entry provides is another big benefit. The key has electronics inside that need to be validated by your car before it will start the engine or even open any doors. Some keyless systems will even automatically lock your doors when you walk away. Finally, there is the fun perk of keyless entry, remote start. You’ll feel like an everyday wizard when you press a button and hear your car start.
All Passive systems are keyless, but not all Keyless Entry Systems are passive. We realize it’s confusing. Here’s how it functions. Keyless Entry involves the vehicle driver pushing buttons to lock and unlock the vehicle and other functions like opening the trunk. Passive Keyless entry is when you can keep your car keys in your pocket and you touch an area on the car (like a spot on a door) to unlock and lock the doors, or wave your foot underneath the vehicle to open the trunk area. One advantage of passive entry systems is that they generally include Keyless Ignition. Keyless Ignition allows you to start and drive your vehicle without the key fob ever leaving your pocket.
To be clear, Keyless Ignition and Remote Start are different features, even if they do similar things. Keyless Start lets drivers start and drive their car without the need for a standard key. Remote Ignition lets drivers start their vehicle through their key fob. Remote Ignition is helpful during extreme temps such as very cold or very hot days by letting you start the car and help cool it off when it’s hot. You will never get into a hot car again, simply use the Remote Start and allow your vehicle to cool off before you drive away.
A Smart Key is the electronic part of your key that is used to access a car remotely. The buttons for your wireless functions are found on the Smart Key itself. The Smart Key then sends signals to the car to open the hatch, lock the doors, and so on. Some cars won’t start without the Smart Key, as they are connected to the anti-theft system. With so many fun and convenient options available, why wouldn’t you choose a Smart Key System?
