  • Remote Control for any 12V accessory

    I found this the other day and instantly thought of many neat things it could control.

      Interesting. I've never seen this, but I can't really think of anything cool to do with it. Start computer remotely? The 30 sec boot time doesn't bother me enough for that to be an issue. I like it though.

            Taking co workers out to lunch? Tap that on your way out the door and your system will be booted by the time you get to your car...

            Thanks for the link! I could have used it 2 years ago before I spent a hundred smackers on the car starter (canabilized the trunk popper), but thanks nonetheless.

              I use Remote desktop alot between my home PCs and the CarPC. I could really use something like this. I can turn on the carPC from inside the house, connect and do my thing. Another press of the button and I can keep "renewing" the Opus' 20min shutdown timer if I need more time.

              I didn't see any mention of wireless range listed in the description. Can you guys that have seen other modules like this please post the links? I'd like to get one of these for at least the mean time while I choose and install a full-out alarm system with aux. outputs.

                    what happens when you get out of your car, and a button on the remote is pressed while its in your pocket?

                    then the carputer is on while its parked, u get back, dead battery

                    imo, not such a good idea :T

                      Not sure about you, but I believe the general consensus around here is that ppl have DC-DC power supplies or inverters that will auto cut-out when the battery starts getting low, preventing this from ever happening.

                      I think leaving headlights on would be more of a concern....

                        Easiest way, is just remote start it. The car starts, so does the PC. Whe I see my car, I push the remote three times, the headlights flash, and it starts up. Whe I get in the car, music is playing.

                        It won't go off by accident too easily because it is 3 pushes within a short time, so the possibility is reduced. Even if it does, it just wastes a little gas for 10minutes then shuts off. The PC is only on when the car is charging the battery.

                        My remote start only cost me like $50 including shipping.

                        Seems the more logcal way to go seeing as how you get many more options for a little more money, and you don't have this keychain dongle that only does 1 thing.

                          well, depends how its all hooked up, and what exactly is hooked up i suppose

                          but your probably right :T

                          personally, i'd set it to the horn on my car so i dont have to remember where my car is, but not have to actually set the alarm off

                            Pilot has a four channel wireless remote,each channel is programmable on/off switched or momentary on/off......

                            cost was around 25 bucks,was purchased at an Autozone,and could handle 15 amps per output,WITH seperate inputs per output, so you could have an output on ignition only... you could also easily add relays to boost power...

                            used it an undercover install, officer didnt want ANY buttons, ANYWHERE..so I installed it, and the buttons were on his keychain remote..used one button for siren,one button for airhorn, one button for lights, and had one button left over....
