KEY FOB CONNECT TO HEAT/AIR FUNCTION

Wed Sep 06, 2017 8:01 am

I'd like to be able to turn my car heat/air on using only the key fob. I don't want to go out and purchase a smart phone to do that.

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.

That's why I moved here. I grew up in ice and snow, before remote start and FOB's, don't miss it one bit.

So perhaps you shouldn't be lecturing those who have to traverse ice, snow and frigid temps to go out to the car...?

We all like to dream about all the great new functions we would like to have on our possessions....

Personally, I think that the car starting/ heating warm up is an unnecessary fad that alarm installers came up with to get people to spend more money.

Especially on an electric car, starting heat or ac is tremendously wasteful of power... It takes less than a minute for the climate to start working when you enter the car....

Maybe when you're old, and have poor circulation, including Reyaud's (sp?) syndrome, you'll appreciate the difference between a frigid cabin (and steering wheel) slowly warming up, and one that's tolerable the moment you get in. I only preheated for 2-5 minutes when I have remote access, but it made a huge difference...

Having had to traverse ice, snow, and endure frigid temps a good part of my life makes me qualified to lecture on it.

Maybe you should brush up on your reading comprehension skills.

hardly a lecture when the point he is making is a valid one.

In reality it all depends on quality of FOB. I was able to start the pre cool on my Prius from my living room window which was like 75 feet or so. But there were other times I would be less than 30 feet away and it didn't work so YMMV.

Another option would be your best bet by far

You also fail to consider the distance to walk to some drivers' cars. No, you're just making a sloppy, callous argument.
