What sets iDatastart apart from other remote start systems?
ADS is among the most respected companies in the mobile electronics industry with products trusted by thousands of installers around the world. While many name brand remote start and security systems rely on ADS’ technology to integrate with ever-evolving in-vehicle technologies, iDatastart, ADS’ in-house remote start brand, incorporates all this technology into one single control module, ensuring the most seamless installation experience for installers and most dependable product for end users.
Why should I choose an iDatastart system over a factory-installed remote start system offered by the dealership?
While remote start is now offered as a standard or optional feature on many new vehicles, operating range is typically limited to approximately 100 feet and no 2-way command confirmation is offered. iDatastart's complete line of RF transmitters are available in compact 1-button and 5-button configurations and can offer up to 1-Mile operating range with optional 2-way command confirmation. Moreover, iDatastart systems are also compatible with popular aftermarket smartphone control systems sold separately for unlimited range and vehicle tracking capabilities.
