Remote Start Installation Services We Offer In St. Louis

During the cold winter months, having a remote starter for your vehicle can be incredibly useful. With the simple press of a button, you can start your engine from a distance and let it warm up, making it ready to travel. In addition to these benefits, many remote starters also come equipped with a GPS, allowing you to locate your vehicle easily if you’ve forgotten where you parked it.

1-Way Remote Start to Factory Key Fob

Our most popular remote start system is the 1-way Remote Start to Factory Fob. This system works just like the 1-way system, but the remote is integrated into your factory key fob. As soon as the car starts, your parking lights will turn on, alerting you that the car has started.


  • -Add remote start to factory key fob for convenience
  • -Will operate via 3x lock, 20 minute run time
  • -Keeps same Range as factory fob
  • -Separate remotes can be included for added range

Standard 1-Way Remote Start

Our standard 1-way Remote Start comes with Compustar remotes, one of the most renowned brands in the world. If you prefer a range of 1000′ over your factory fob’s range, this is the perfect system for you. Additionally, if you do not have a keyless entry remote, this system is a great option.


  • -Remote Start to Compustar 1-way remotes
  • -1 click to lock, 2 clicks to unlock, press and hold for 3 seconds to start the vehicle

2-Way Remote Start System

It also comes with the same Compustar brand just like the 1-Way remote start fob. However, this particular 2-way Remote Start has an impressive range of 3000 feet, which is significantly greater than a factory fob or a 1-button remote start. Although it may look similar to the 1-Way remote start fob, it also has an additional confirmation signal that lights up to indicate that the vehicle has started.

  • -Sends Confirmation Signal of completed action
  • -3000ft range, much higher than factory fob

Benefits of Having Remote Start For Your Car

Comfort in Any Climate

Car remote starters allow you to pre-condition your vehicle’s interior temperature, ensuring a comfortable ride regardless of the weather outside. Whether it’s sweltering heat or bone-chilling cold, you can warm up or cool down your car before even stepping inside, making for a more pleasant driving experience for you and your passengers.

Engine Preservation

Starting your car remotely gives the engine time to warm up to its optimal operating temperature before driving, reducing wear and tear on vital components. This can extend the lifespan of your engine and improve overall vehicle longevity, ultimately saving you money on repairs and maintenance down the line.

Safety and Visibility

Remote starters can improve safety by melting snow and ice on your windshield and windows, providing better visibility when you’re ready to hit the road. By eliminating the need to manually scrape off ice or wait for defrosting, remote starters help you get on your way quickly and safely, especially during frosty winter mornings.

Convenience and Flexibility

With the push of a button on your key fob or smartphone app, you can start your car from a distance, allowing you to multitask and make the most of your time. Whether you’re running late and need to warm up your car while finishing your morning coffee or cooling it down before leaving work on a hot summer day, remote starters offer unparalleled convenience and flexibility.
