PSA: Another aftermarket Remote starter/Alarm start thread. This one has videos

UPDATE 12/29/2019
I'm sure you dont want to go thru 22 pages of stuff or just need to chat.
click on this link to schedule a phone consult

Calendly - Stee Vee Zee

Cliff NOTES:

Fully plug and play for Limited and Key Vehicles
2020 are very close to being release 2 systems went out to be confirmed, it is different than 2019 Push to start trucks.

2010-2019 trucks are 100% plug and play. Only system on the market that will be 100% plug and play with defroster options and full security options that can be controlled thru the factory remote!

Still have a few 98% plug and play kits left

Bladed key vehicles, i'm sure my system is cheaper than everything out there with more features
Limited Vehicles, i'm sure my system is NOT the cheapest but instead in between everything else out there, but the only system that has security option.

If you are looking for basic, this system is more than you will ever need.
If you are looking at more features like defroster controls, full security, long range remote options or smart phone.
Then we need to chat via email then phone if you want. You'll likely save money in the long run.

Latest UPDATE 10/6/2019 starts at post 299

I could have started a new thread instead of using one thats 4.5 years old.
Read thru the reviews.

100% plug and play now. No More cutting, splicing, soldering.
For both Limited and SR5/TRD models!!

What makes it different from all the other stuff out there?
1: Standard Feature : Defroster controls - Mirrors/Rear Glass/Front windshield wipers. This requires wiring, only 3 connections.
2: Standard Feature : Factory Horn alerts
3: Full Security Upgrade option is available. This has digital tilt/impact/glass sensor, status LED and siren. I include a 3d printed switch blank for the LED status indicator now.
4: Digital Touch Keypad option availability
5: Smart phone Option now packaged with 2 way remote. You can still use it from factory remote if you want to.
6: Optional 3 mile range remotes available and comes with drone mobile!
7: Auto headlight off control now.
8: New Drone mobile comes with one months free premium service. Rates as low as $2.99 a month. Ultra low power consumption now in standby mode.

Compare features, upgradability, support and pricing. You'll see why this system is still the best out there.
Shoot me a email to go over options.

I still have a few of the 98% plug and play systems that will be deeply discounted.
shoot me a email gshadow325 at gmail dot com




Updated 2/15/2019 Post 285

Sad to announce that EZgo has been retired. they are no longer available from Compustar. I brought into stock as many as they had and as many parts as they had.
Officially it is gone and no longer available. If you do find one and want it with this system, we can take the conversation offline.

Still beta testing windows to work from drone and remote control

Update update: 12.22.2018 starting on post 270!!

Ok guys, working on beta testing and documenting opening and closing the windows from your smart phone!

All systems shipped as of today will have programming and optional wiring to do this!!!



EDIT 11/09/2018 Starting at post 240
Post clean up with latest videos

Thanks to all the members on here. This newest version is Remote Start v3.0
It is 98% plug and play with two connections that will be t-tapped to connect for ease of install. Soldering is the preferred method still.


System is 100% customizable to what ever your heart desires.
-I want Remote start only? YES.
-I want Remote start from factory fob? YES
-I want Remote start with no shut down when you open the door like the factory? YES, but if you have a limited...sorry no
-FULL SECURITY with remote starter? YES. Now with digital tilt/impact and glass sensor!
-I want to control the FULL security from my factory remote! YES
-I want Smart phone capabilities using the faster 4g LTE network? YES, with tracking capabilities? YES
-I want 1, 2 or 3 mile range two way remotes instead of using my smart phone! YES
-I want EZ-GO handsfree proximity locking/unlocking! YES
-I want a touch sensitive pin pad on my windshield to arm/disarm or lock/unlock my truck! YES
-I want a battery backup module! YES
-I want the defrosters to come on when i remote start the truck. YES, used to be an option. Now included feature with this kit.
-I want a remote start but dont think i need alarm, can i upgrade later? YES
-I want all this stuff but not now..Can i add it later? YES, totally upgradable system!
-I want custom features, like i want the light bar to come on when i remote start the truck or i want to control the light bar thru one of the Aux channels on my smart phone or I want to do something cool with aux channels, YES just let me know
-I want it to run for 45 minutes. YES

Rarely will there be a NO, one of the things i love about Compustar.
This is what the system looks like now in version 3.0
What comes in your order will depend on what options you get.


Demo of system working
YouTube

Demo of how fast the Drone Mobile works

Demo of how the touch RPS works. Thats still my PIN number, if you ever see my car and try it. I will get alerts on my T12 Remote and on my Drone mobile it was unlocked via PIN pad!!

EDIT: 10/20/2018
This one is a big one! Only 2 wires to connect now. 4 Optional ones. Everything else is PLUG AND PLAY.

This is a custom build, its totally upgradable to all options
Touch-RPS
Drone Mobile
EZ-Go
1 mile, 2 mile or 3 Mile Remotes
Full Security option available and NEWEST sensor now does Impact/Tilt and GLASS BREAK!!

WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!! You buy a system you will get a Crasian Patch to support Esophical Cancer AND Donation will be made in your name!

Newest Info in post #240
EDIT: 1/3/2018
All systems moving forward in this new year will have defroster capabilities. This is because of the latest firmware updates that became available. Now I'm able to have defrosters turned on when the truck is remote started. Yes, mirrors and rear glass. And yes for you lucky ones that have a heated windshield, this is going to turn that in too!!

Then there is going to be...... Hey what about me? I had this done before can I get this too?? Yes you can. Please email me to go over the details.
@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@ @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
EDIT: 10.31.2017
2018s are covered, limited and regular keys.
Can't see the pictures? Download the chrome plug-in called Photobucket hot link fix. You'll thank me later, it's not my original idea too. Someone told me about this plug in!!!
Since many read this thread on mobile, no PM please, email me at gshadow325 at gmail


EDIT: 01/06/2017
This is a big edit i should have did a while ago. Now the factory remote will be able to control the truck while it is started. So 3 clicks on the lock button and the truck will start. when you ready to get in, it will not shut down like the factory will when it is remote started. You can use the factory remote while it is remote started now. No more need for the EZ-Go, it can still be used as an option now Real easy install now.


EDIT 12/20/2015
Added my email to my signature, my mailbox on here blows up once the cold hits the northern states! I get 8 to 10 messages a week about this topic! trying to respond via PM is PITA, since it requires me to log on, sift thru the messages
************************************************** *********************************
Guys, i have 3 videos showcasing how Compustar using a datalink module will work with your vehicle. Purpose of these videos is to clarify how it works differently than a OEM remote starter.

We need to first establish what type of key your have

-Bladed Key. Most common type across the whole toyota lineup. Remote built into the head of the key with a "G" stamped on the blade near the remote.
-Smart key. Found on Limited Models. This is the key that never needs to leave your pocket.

I will show you how You can remote start your truck and when you get it it will not shut off with a bladed key.

I will show you how a Smart key will work with your truck (using a Lexus ES350, its the same as the 5th gen runners). These remotes will not have take over using datalink Modules. You can use a Fortin Evo-All module in you 2010-2012 4runner. It doesnt officially support 13-15 4runners. I personally have not used a fortin module ina smart key 4runner yet. When I do i will update this post.

First Video is using a 2014 4runner Trail.
Hardware Used
-Compustar Alarm and Remote Starter Combo brain
-RPS Touch
-Drone Mobile
-1 Way remote controls
-Idatalink Interface Module

OLD VIDEOS Installed a Alarm/Remote Starter and Dronemobile unit. OEM Remote can arm and dis-arm aftermarket alarm system as well as 3 clicks on the lock button on remote will start it up too! Drone Mobile is used to extend range infinitely. Thats why we chose to not invest in a two way remote.

27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000">

Next video is a 2015 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro.
Hardware Used
-Compustar Remote Starter unit
-DroneMobile Smart Phone Interface
-EZ-Go RFID remote controller
-Idatalink Interface Module

OLD VIDEOS Using the OEM remote you can click the lock button 3 times and it will start. Added in a EZ-Go unit so if the vehicle is started, you can walk up to the vehicle and it will unlock when you are in proximity of the vehicle. EZ-Go is also setup to when you exit the vehicle it will arm the OEM security and lock the doors! Installed a Drone Mobile for the same reason as above!

27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000">

Last video is giving you a idea on how a Compustar remote starter will work with your smart key 4runner. Idatalink is mimicking OEM start sequence by hitting the lokc button 3 times to make it start. Toyotas and Lexus do not constantly look for the smart key like nissans and infinitis. what this means, you can walk away from a running vehicle and the vehicle will not alert you to tell you it is still running by beeping the horn or flashing the lights. For this reason, thats why the vehicle needs to shut down and then get restarted again. the vehicle needs to validate the smart key again before it can be driven away.

Using a 2011 ES350 for reference. I didnt think to make videos of the first few smart key 4runners I did. Next one i do, I'll make you internet famous LOL.

OLD VIDEOS Hardware used.
-Compustar remote starter unit
-Drone Mobile smart phone interface. same reason as all the others. extend your range!!
27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000">

With aftermarket vs OEM.

Aftermarket can add in Smart phone and desktop control capabilities. No shut down after the door opens on regular bladed key vehicles, this is called take over. It will still shut down on Limited Models with the smart key.

I hope this clears up some confusion on what works and what doesnt. also on how it works.
If it doesnt, I'm sure there will be a few posts.

so, you're limited by the range of the transmitter in your stock key?

Sorry but I will keep my 1 mile range with the AstroStart.

That is the biggest benefit for me up here in the Arctic Circle (North Dakota).

OEM fobs obviously have OEM range. The FTX 1400 fobs that I also have reach every bit of the 1000' range they advertise. There are no range limits with the Drone Mobile module I have. So far, the farthest distance I have used it is 30 miles. I had to unlock so my dad could get his glasses he forgot then re-armed it. Works very good. Very little delay. It makes 2-way remotes really unnecessary.

Correct. Thought process is, if you really that far away from the vehicle then a drone unit will virtually eliminate the distance issue.

No need to be sorry. Compustar makes remotes that comes in a variety of flavors. Like your favorite ice cream store. Like your favorite coffee shop with all the different syrups and double shot foam mocha chi latte.

You can get a simple 1 button to a full featured rechargeable 1 mile remote. BTW Compustar was the first to market with a FCC approved 1 mile remote. Notice the key word FCC.

I'm sure with your ASTRO start you can't just upgrade / replace the remote and antenna to go from one way to two way long range. Compustar can.

Thanks for chiming in. If ^^^^ wanted to move to a 2 way led remote, all he would need to do is get a RF package plug, program and play.

The purpose of this thread is to have a roll up of how aftermarket works vs the current factory version.

I'm sure many members will read this thread but not comment. My inbox fills up with these questions 3 to 4 times a week and I don't mind answering everyone's questions. Thought a thread in the 5th gen section could help you guys out. Since there is lots of conflicting info.

Feel free to ask the questions or like many do already Send me a private message. I'll do my best to get back to you as fast as I can.

hehe, that 1 mile range is great in the open spaces of ND, but when your in a metal building/mall and your at one end and your 4runner is at the other end, my drone will remote start that vehicle easier than effective 1 miles cut down to about 500-1000 feet.

now granted if you have no cell service out in the country I call understand the range of the fob, but since I mostly live in the city, the drone is a better fit.

also to add, the 2014 rav4 H-key fob is a pita currently. until compustar can crack the security, they have to use the spare key to remote start.

the other issue with the rav4, she cant use the oem fob to unlock the vehicle when remote started. have to use the compustar fob or the app.

at least on my LE, I can live with the vehicle shutting off when I open the door, since the primary reason is to warm the vehicle for me.

I will probably never remote start using the fob since I hardly notice its on the belt loop anyway.

which is a pita sometime when I get in and push the start button and it says "wheres the dam fob idiot" and I go "Doh", run back into the house to grab the fob.


edit: hopefully they release the drone app update soon, like before march-20 so I can see how the new app works when you have more than 1 vehicle on the same account. in a holding pattern to see if I need to remove the daughters vehicle and have a separate account. its currently annoying to constantly swap the last vehicle started on the app since the app remembers based on the account, not each individual app.

ie: I start mine and both apps retain the last vehicle started since its reading based on the account. the new app is suppose to remember the last vehicle started within the app not the account.

Of course I do. First hand since day one and first hand how to hack the SD card to accept anything over 32gb!

Awesome unit. I have bought 5 plus dash cams and nothing is comparable to this. Function. Quality stability reliability this thing is awesome.

We know about the H key and Using Tis to program a blank. That's the only solution for bypass ATM.

Let's keep this thread on topic and keep the content related to the topic at hand.

I'll pm you the link for the dash video on how it saved thanksgiving for a friend of a friend.

you know what....fug it...i'm sure others want to see the video too!! I'm not going to be greedy and only share with @NoDak !! Just ask you like the page and share with your friends!!!


back story:
Hit and Run:
thanksgiving eve. compustar dash installed in my friends truck. everyone is home. you can see in the reflection in the vehicle that got hit a set of headlights coming real fast. compustar dash recorded a "motion" event. there is actually rear camera footage too but thats not available to me.

quality is much much better than this video show. facebook reduces quality on video clips. the important thing is @ 17 second mark, you will be able to see the licence plate CLEARLY!!

The Dash saved Thanksgiving for that family. Guy that ran, was a friend of a friend of another friend's friends cousin in law 2x's removed or something like that...found out there was dash cam footage with tag info. so he surrendered before the cops came to Lock his ass up. Cops said, thanks for making their lives easier and asked for a copy of the video and BUSINESS CARDS!!

i know compustar is ready to go right out of the box. with everything you need down to the 16gb sd card and sd card adapter to usb dongle. only thinng optional is the GPS antenna.

one thing this does vs everyone else. it prompts you to format sd card every two weeks. this prevents data from corrupting the sd card. i have had umerous occasions trying to fetch the video and the sd card was corrupted. it records with a motion event as well as a impact event in parking mode. and will record impoact in driving mode too. it saves the info to seperate directories for safe keeping.

Question for the OP: Would the EZ-Go over-write the engine shut off (upon entry) after remote start activation in a Limited that has a smart key and an after market Compustart remote starter?

Short answer NO.
Long answer...read on

Limited is a whole different animal.

Clarification: EZ-Go is very much like your factory smart key found on the limited.

Right now if you had a factory remote starter, no matter what key you got it shuts off after a door is opened.

With the limited, installing a aftermarket remote starter from Compustar USING a Idatalink interface, it will shut down when a door opens like in the last video.

BUT!

Fortin | Bypass modules, remote starters and alarm systems Fortin makes a interface called a Evo-All that is supposed to NOT shut down when the door opens. I personally have NOT installed one yet. I have 3 Evo-All's in stock just to have to try on the next 4runner limited i get into my install bay.

Reading the application guide for the Fortin Evo-All, it says "take over" works on 2010-2012 Smart Key 4Runners only. I personally dont know why since they are all the same from 2010-2015. I will have to take their word for it for now till i get a 13-15 Limited in to personally install it to know otherwise.

Anyone out there in t4r world want me to do it for you?

@BKRunner after all that, I hope to answer your question :P

Right now Smart Keys will shut down when the door opens.
