    You could use a variation on the GM On-Star system. But your car would need cellular access (like On-Star) They remotely unlock / start / kill / detect entry all the time via cell.

    p.s. cpjr, Viper systems are the shiz. I have one in my new Acura. Starting your car from a mile away... nice.

    I loves mine. I installed (and I mean I did, its a beotch) the Responder LE when it first came out.....now I want to try the new LC3.

    You need to figure out how to store, to the phone, the signal that your keyless remote emits.

    Example(yes, I have tried this):

    Use your cellphone to call your better half on their cellphone. While in call, hold your phone facing your car door and have your better half point and activate the keyless remote into their phone. It will unlock your car door through your phone remotely no matter how far you are from the other cellphone that is transmitting the unlock signal.
    Huh, I gotta try that.

    Mythbusters did a thing on this on the webcast. If you grab the discovery app you can check their channel to see it. The couple times that I tried this back in the day it never worked.

    Some of the new cars, like 09 Nissan Altima, have it where you don't have to take your keys out ever. If they are in proximity you can walk up and hit a small black button to unlock the car. And then you can just push start it. It is close range, my gf had the keys in her purse and she was getting in the passenger door and the unlock button did not work on my side; she had to hit the button on her side.

    Comon guys, stop spreading this silly rumor around by claiming you've tried it. It's not technologically possible using any common cell phones or keyless entry systems. snopes.com: Cell Phone Unlocks Keyless Cars


    And yes, I would purchase the module and install it in my car if this app were to come around. I wouldn't pay any price, but a reasonable price, of course. You should check to see if you can integrate with the company that makes the OBDII-based monitoring software for the iPhone. They have a hardware addon already on the market, along with the app.

    Would be cool as an app. but not if you have to install something on your car.

    sounds really cool, but the only problem i see is that people will have to have after market security systems in their cars to make this work and i am pretty sure their isnt a huge market for that nor do alot of people have it installed. but it is a fantastic idea nonetheless

    It doesn't work. We tried this at my work last year when it first was talked about. We tried 6 different cars, different phone and everything.. Didn't work.

    That would be awesome! I've allways wanted that. I don't ever leave the house without my iphone.
    I would buy the Scytek Precision Blue1000, it looks like it's less expensive. Can you post some screen shots of what you have so far?
    Have you actually used the iphone with one of two two units you mentioned?

    Hi there.
    We've actually been working on this very system for quite a while now, and it's finally ready to launch!
    Visit our site at www.prautogy.com to view the demo- we've put a lot of time into the menu system, and I'd love to hear your feedback!
    If you have any questions or comments, email me at [email protected] - I'd love to get your feedback!

    Seems like a nice system, but the Viper system is cheaper and they are a well known name in auto security. I can't imagine paying more for a similar product from someone I've never heard of.

    Their system is very nice for the limited basic vehicle functions it can control.

    Our HALO system is geared more towards a user that wants to "show off" a bit more- more outputs for more functions, and a UI that is fun to play with.

    The HALO Bluetooth interface also doesn't come with a monthly charge for usage.

    Our basic system starts out at a lower price than theirs as well- it's only when adding all of the "bells and whistles" that you surpass their retail price.

    Thanks for taking a look at the site, though- there's bound to be other systems on the market, and I'm sure we'll all find our customer base.
