You don't have to purchase a smart phone, you can do it from any web browser. Activating with the key fob would require close proximity to the vehicle. The current system allows it to be done from anywhere there is internet access (and cell service available to the car).
If you have to get close enough to use the key fob, it's not any more difficult to walk to the car, turn it on, go back inside, and wait for the car climate to adjust.
