In this article, we will be discussing the installation of a remote car start system in a 2008 BMW 335 X. We will be using the ID to Start system from First Tech, which allows us to bypass the immobilizer in the vehicle and clone the key to start the car without having to purchase a new BMW key from the dealer.
1. Buy an extra key and put it in a box inside the car to disable the immobilizer.
2. Purchase the ID to Start system from First Tech, which reads the keys directly out of the BMW's key store and clones the key to start the car.
3. The ID to Start system comes with a module that plugs into the car's CAN bus signals and reads and decodes the signals.
4. The module comes with a T-harness that allows you to tap into the car's wires without having to cut any wires.
5. The module also comes with a drone that gives you LTE access to the module and allows you to start the car from anywhere with an internet connection.
6. The drone can also read DTC codes and send them to your phone.
The ID to Start system from First Tech is a great way to add remote start capabilities to your BMW without having to purchase a new key from the dealer. The T-harness makes installation easy and the drone gives you unlimited range access to the module. If you're interested in adding remote start to your BMW, consider using the ID to Start system from First Tech.

Hey everyone, it's Jeff from Lockdown Security, and in this article, I'm going to show you how we installed a plug-and-play remote starter on a 2011 BMW 328.

- We installed an ID at Start bm1 plug-and-play remote starter kit, which requires no wire splicing and comes with tee harnesses.
- The kit allows remote starter control with three lock pushes, and it takes about 20 seconds for the car to start itself.
- We installed an aftermarket RF kit on the vehicle, which includes CompuStar remote controls. The kit we used is RF 2w 7 03 and offers an extra 3,000 feet of range compared to the OEM key.
- The RF kit includes a two-way LCD remote with lock, unlock, trunk release, and remote start buttons.
- The system provides updates on the vehicle's status, and the remote start has a 15-minute run time.
- There were some issues with secure takeover on this vehicle, but we have not resolved them as of today.
Overall, this plug-and-play remote starter installation is pretty cool and offers BMW key control and an optional RF kit. If you have any questions or want to know more information, please give us a call, and we'd be happy to install this system in your BMW.

Programación e instalación de CMBMXA0 + ADS-THR-BZ3 en Mercedes clase C 2010
Hola amigos, el día de hoy les vengo a compartir cómo instalar y programar estos componentes que son para hacerle un encendido remoto a tu carro utilizando la llave original. En mi caso es un Mercedes de 300 2010 y yo utilicé Stern, pero hay diferentes para diferentes carros, como para Mercedes, Mini Cooper, etcétera. Estos cables te permiten poner un switch al cofre para añadirle funciones, aunque en mi caso no lo necesité porque mi switch del cofre sí está funcionando.
Para hacer la instalación necesitarás el módulo y los cables con los cuales te vas a conectar. Luego necesitarás el programador y el cable programador para poder programar el módulo. También puedes añadir un switch para el cofre, aunque esto es opcional.
Una vez que tienes todo lo necesario, conectas el módulo a la llave original y el cable original que va al módulo de la llave lo conectas a una T con una continuación. Luego conectas el cable para el switch y, si lo deseas, puedes añadir más accesorios.
Después de conectar todo, es necesario programar el módulo para que funcione con tu carro. Para hacer esto, conectas el programador al módulo y a tu computadora y descargas el software con el que vas a programarlo. Luego eliges tu marca de carro y el año y seleccionas cómo quieres que prenda el carro. Una vez que programas el módulo, lo desconectas y lo conectas a tu carro.
Es importante desconectar la pila antes de hacer la instalación y volver a conectar todo correctamente después de terminar. También es normal que el carro no prenda de inmediato después de la instalación, pero esto se soluciona al pisar el freno y encenderlo de manera normal.
En resumen, para instalar un encendido remoto en tu carro utilizando la llave original necesitas los componentes necesarios, conectarlos correctamente y programar el módulo. Recuerda desconectar la pila antes de comenzar la instalación y volver a conectar todo correctamente después de terminar.

One downside of the system is the time it takes to transmit information from the cellular network to the app and back to the system. This could be improved with a Wi-Fi connection between the car and app. It would also be nice if the remote could communicate with the EVO and the EVO to the app. Additionally, the app should transmit information about the alarm going off.
