DroneMobile announced it is now a direct partner with AT&T, which will power its DR-3400 remote-start-from-a-phone solutions over its 3G network.
Previously, DroneMobile worked through a service aggregator to provide 2G service.
Under the new plan, users will see greater cellular coverage, including the ability to cross the border into Canada.
DroneMobile adds a cellular connection to a vehicle, allowing remote start, security and GPS tracking controlled from a smartphone app or computer.
The solution is compatible with its KLON bypass modules that work with remote starters, enabling them to install in specific cars without the need for the driver to forfeit a spare key (as in older solutions).
“Our relationship with AT&T means that cars using the device will be supported by a reliable network that covers more than 99 percent of Americans,” said Firstech’s Managing Director Jason Kaminski. “Moving to AT&T’s network will allow us to break ground in terms of the DroneMobile hardware’s speed and responsiveness.”
DroneMobile will be at Best Buy during Q1, as one of two connected car solutions featured near the front entrance at over 1,000 Best Buy locations.
All DroneMobile systems require a service plan that starts at $49.99/year.
Firstech will show DroneMobile and other products at the company’s suite at the Wynn Las Vegas during CES 2016 in Las Vegas. For more information or an appointment contact [email protected] or [email protected].
