remote start with iPhone app or SMS

0 votes
could you please advice if there is any solution on the market supported by Fortin to make a remote start possible by means of:

1. iPhone application (might be Android application)

2. GSM module/SMS commands

all the devices I found under http://ifar.ca/en/datalink/ link belong to "heavy" alarm systems and I would like to get "lightweight" GSM starter or iPhone starter.

cheers,

Nikolay

Yeah.. that list needs updating.

At the moment, Fortin products are initially used as bypass units, and devices to simplify installation of the big heavy units.

Almost 2 years ago, since most newer vehicles are full of data and Can-Bus, we introduced the Stand Alone feature in the EVO, since really... a remote starter would not be required.

As for the GSM units, nothing yet :(  Note that GSM units all require monthly / yearly susbsriptions.

I'd recommend looking into these 2 models. I'm not sure which parts of the planet they cover though:

  • DEI SmartStart
  • Compustar Drone
