Basic Tips When Buying a Remote Keyless Entry System
Modern vehicles are now equipped with some of the most advanced technological features, all for the purpose of making them safer and convenient to use. In reality though, only a handful of those add-ons can rightfully be called as useful. One particular addition that should be installed in every vehicle is a remote keyless entry system. This feature allows the owner to lock and unlock the vehicle from the outside using a transmitter instead of the traditional key.
Although newer vehicles are already pre-installed with remote keyless entry systems, there’s a good chance that yours does not have it, which is why you’re reading this article in the first place. Fortunately for you, there now are so many shops that can do a keyless entry setup for your car. However, be reminded keyless entry systems differ from each other and you might come across one that’s cheaply made and of very low quality, something you certainly don’t want to purchase because it isn’t expected to last long.
Here are some tips on how to buy the right one for your car:
First, you can choose between a single door and a multi-door type. As the name implies, a single-door variety of a keyless entry system will control just one door, which is located at the driver’s side. The multi-door type on the other hand lets you control all the doors in the vehicle, and there are even some versions that include the trunk. But then again, it might be a good idea to do some more research before you make the decision because some people think that single-door systems are safer compared to multi-door varieties.

Next, you must pick between the standard/conventional model and the pager model. Know that there’s a big difference between the two because the basic or standard model only functions to unlock and lock the doors and sometimes signal the alarm if you have an alarm system connected to it. On the other hand, a page model is a lot more sophisticated because aside from unlocking and locking, it also can send information to the car via its transmitter like interior temperature and battery voltage, while most of these models already have a car locator and panic button.

Moreover, you will want to compare different manufacturers instead of opting for one; don’t forget to read reviews and give value to other factors like the price, easy installation, and the reputation of the brand of the remote keyless entry system you intend to buy. You can’t just assume that the one your friend or coworker recommended is the best choice for you.
Lastly, be sure you hire a professional to install the remote keyless entry system. The fact that you bought the product yourself does not mean you have what it takes to install it on your own.
