Some features of the AstroStart Vehicle Remote Starter system are remote start from a virtually unlimited range, door lock and unlock, and remote opening of the trunk. The SmartStart app from Astrostart offers one-way and two-way communication to start the vehicle from up to one mile away.
Features can be accessed with the push of a button using the Smartstart app on a Blackberry, iPhone or Android cellular phone. Astrostart SmartStart also has the ability to activate a panic alert. Users are able to warm or cool the vehicle, as necessary. Using the two-way command feature, the system sends a notification message when commands are received or not received by the vehicle. To increase security, users can enable a passcode protection feature, which locks the app using a four-digit PIN.
The AstroStart app provides Vehicle Name Customization. This feature enables each vehicle to be assigned a unique name. SmartStart account utilities ensure users the ability to change passwords or generate a new password if the old one is forgotten. It also can arm the vehicle's alarm system. The push notification system alerts the user via a cell phone when an alarm event occurs. The vehicle picture customization feature allows the user to upload photos or image files for each individual vehicle.
