I assume you are having BB install. Do you know that this is a good product? I am clueless about this
Actually having it installed by backitupcameras in lakewood 7327652225 . I'm also getting a 3000 ft remote not the 800 feet. It's better for going through walls .
He's a friend of mine and did a lot of research into this company
May you slide down the banister of happiness & get many splinters of success up your career.

Just out of curiosity, why would you not have BB install?

Thereís a guy Gelbwachs in Lakewood that does it. He also programs your existing remote to control it.

Reviving an old thread...

Anyone familiar with all the different remote starter options?
I called 3 different people in Lakewood who do this. They each use different systems (Compustar, Clifford, and Avital). They seem to usually give you a separate remote starter piece, but one guy told me he most commonly reprograms the Toyota key (so no extra remote piece). That seems to be how Toyota themself does it, just if it's not included with your car, they charge a lot. Does that mean he's not using aftermarket parts, and there's less risk of running into issues? I'd prefer having it programmed into the key, but the range is terrible, compared to the aftermarket remotes.
I'd also love to know the differences in the brands and systems... one guy is significantly cheaper, but of course, the system he uses is also likely much cheaper and lower quality.

There are also differences in whether it's a 1 way or 2 way system (seems that they mostly do 1 way, which are cheaper) (2 way system would tell you if it turned your car on I believe). Remotes can come with 1 button just to start, or can come with 4 buttons to also be used as clicker (but likely bigger). There are also options to start from mobile (which give you unlimited range), but those cost a lot more, plus an annual fee (for the data in the car I believe).

Any and all guidance is appreciated. 2018 Camry, non push start.

Try speaking with Nachi (732) 996 - 7774 . He installed my remote starter for a good price and I am happy with it.
