Firstech Launches New DroneMobile Skill for Alexa

EATTLE, WA (06.22.2017) – Firstech, makers of aftermarket remote start and security solutions, has announced the launch of the new DroneMobile Skill for Alexa-enabled devices.

DroneMobile is a connected car solution that gives drivers the ability to lock/unlock, GPS track, and remote start their vehicles using their smartphone. In 2016, Firstech expanded the DroneMobile app to work on wearable devices such as the Apple Watch and Android Wear.

The launch of the Skill for Alexa makes DroneMobile the first aftermarket connected car solution to support voice commands on Alexa-enabled devices. Firstech predicts that DroneMobile will similarly support Google Home devices by mid-Q3 2017.

DroneMobile users that have an active subscription will be able to download the DroneMobile Skill for free. Upon activation, users will be required to create a secret PIN to prevent unauthorized vehicle control. Firstech has stated that remote start features are not yet available and that for the time being, users will be able to lock, unlock, and track their vehicles using the DroneMobile Skill. Amazon has also announced that developers will be able to utilize Alexa alerts in the near future, a feature that would integrate seamlessly with vehicle security and tracking applications.

“We are excited to bring the powerful Alexa engine to DroneMobile,” shares Firstech’s Managing Director, Jason Kaminski, “Alexa is the ultimate controller for connected smart devices, which will add a new level of convenience to something our customers previously had to do with their smartphone or remote control.”

Remote Car Starters: What You Need to Know

If you live anywhere but Los Angeles or Miami, you understand the struggle of sitting in a frozen car on a cold, winter morning. That is, unless you’ve remote started your car.

remote starter, otherwise known as a “car starter”, “auto starter”, or “remote start system”, is an electronic device that allows you to start your vehicle’s engine from outside of your vehicle. Using this device, you can warm up your car on those cold winter mornings, or even cool down your seats during the summer.

How Does It Work?
Remote starters are fairly complex products that require professional installation. In simple terms, a standard remote start system includes two primary components:

1. A controller, or module that is installed inside of your vehicle.

2. A remote that you attach to your keychain and use to start your car.

These two items: the controller and the remote work together to start your car so that your car’s heating or A/C system can “warm up” before you start driving.

Is it Safe for My Car?
Compustar remote car starters are compatible with over 90% of vehicles on the road, including manual-transmissions, diesels, select hybrids, and luxury makes. And more importantly, installing our systems will not affect your vehicle’s manufacturers warranty (Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, 1975).

On top of being safe for your car, Compustar remote starters also have built-in safety features that prevent 100% of car theft. When you remote start your car, your engine is on, but the car cannot be driven unless you have the key physically inside of the vehicle. Otherwise, the moment someone touches the brakes, the vehicle will shut down.

Can I, or my Friend, Install it Ourselves?
If either you or your friend are MECP-certified, professionally-trained 12-volt electricians, then absolutely! Otherwise, leave it to the pros at Sound World Green Bay.


Remote Start Your Vehicle with the Factory Key Fob

Sound World in Green Bay has been a remote start expert for more than 20 years now. One of the common questions we get is, “Can I use my factory key fob to start my car?” The simple answer is “Yes, you can, on many newer models.” But let us explain why you don’twant this as the primary way of starting your car, truck or SUV.

Different Terms Used To Describe This Factory Key Fob Feature

Several popular terms describe using your factory key fob to remote start your car, including triple-lock start and 3x lock start. Here at Sound World, we use the phrase “factory key fob remote start activation.” No matter what you call it, the idea is pretty simple: You press the Lock button on your remote control three times in quick succession, and the remote will activate the automatic starter.

Why We Only Offer It As An Upgrade

Many shops will actively promote doing a remote start with this functionality. We don’t. Here is why.

Your factory key fob has very limited range. After hearing from client after client who had to walk out the door of their house just to remote start their vehicle, we quit offering it as a standalone option. It is our opinion that you bought a starter as a convenience item, so it should be convenient to use. If you have to get up close for it to work, why bother?

Sound World offers remote packages for our systems that will give you a minimum of 10 times the range of a factory fob.  Once you see the minimal cost difference, it will make perfect sense.

If You Hate Extra Items On Your Keys, Buy A DroneMobile

Factory Key FobIf you are the kind of person who thinks there are already too many items on your keychain, the DroneMobile system is perfect for you. It harnesses the power of your smartphone and turns that into your remote control.  It even works with Apple Watch!

A Good Upgrade Option

If your vehicle can support 3x lock control of your remote start, that is a good option to add to one of our systems. In the hot and humid Wisconsin summer, you can use your factory fob to start the engine and engage the A/C to begin cooling it down without needing an extra remote. In a frigidly cold Wisconsin winter, you can use it to warm up your vehicle before going out to it in the morning, during the day, for the ride home or when running errands.
