P.K.E. Systems

​​Keyless Push Button Start

             Systems               

With so many different systems to choose from, we understand sometimes it can be difficult to understand what each system does or the meanings behind certain terminology used.  Below you will find some explanations behind the purpose of each system and what they do or can do for you and your vehicles security and convenience. If you have additional questions please refer to our FAQ's page.

Technology

A keyless pushbutton start system allows the user to no longer need there original ignition key to start the vehicle. The original ignition and key are replaced with a push start button. There are two different types of keyless push button start systems. The first is a piggy back systems or Non PKE/RFID keyelss push button start, this type of system is combined with an existing vehicle security system giving it the added convenience of keyless push button start. The second type has a  P.K.E. or RFID system built in to allow the user proximity sensing keyless access to the vehicle as well as keyless push button start.

Passive keyless entry systems or proximity keyless entry systems perform two simple functions: Lock & unlock the vehicle without the use of an actual key and by only entering and exiting the proximity of the vehicle. To realize these functions, a technologically advanced system is required that includes a new generation HF/LF fob and an in-cabin base station with its associated set of LF antennas.

A biometric start system will allow the owner of the vehicle to retain  full vehicle security even if the thief had the keys to the vehicle. Biometric start systems require a registered users finger print to be confirmed before the vehicle can be started. To realize these functions, a technologically advanced system is required that includes a an in-cabin base station with an in-cabin finger print scanner.

GSM (Smart Start) technology allows the user to monitor, lock/unlock and remote start their vehicle using there cellular smart phone. To realize these functions, a technologically advanced system is required that includes downloading and installing a smart start application to your smart phone. Since GSM technology works using cell towers the range in which the vehicle can be controlled and monitored is virtually limitless.

Frequency-Hopping 

Can-Bus Technology

Frequency-hopping spread spectrum (FHSS) is a method of transmitting radio signals by rapidly switching a carrier among many frequency channels, using a pseudo-random sequence known to both transmitter and receiver. It is utilized as a multiple access method in the frequency-hopping code division multiple access (FH-CDMA) scheme. With FHSS technology supported, the car is protected by better security.

CAN bus (for controller area network) is a vehicle bus standard designed to allow microcontrollers and devices to communicate with each other within a vehicle without a host computer.
CAN bus is a message-based protocol, designed specifically for automotive applications but now also used in other areas such as industrial automation and medical equipment.
