    Looking for a proximity relay/transmitter

    On many of the newer cars like Infinity's FX series and C6 Corvettes, you don't really use your keys to turn on the car or unlock the doors. It unlocks the doors automatically when you get within a certain distance from the car.

    I'm wanting to install something like that for my car. Does anyone know where I can get a hold of a relay/switch that will activate when the transmitter is within a certain distance?

    are you serious?

    he wants to get in and disable the imobiliser without keys so he can just walk up and push a start button. Keyless entry means you have an RFID style tag thing so whan you walk up it unlocks - just like Renaults and Mercs have had for ages.

    On nearly every aftermarket alarm I've seen, "keyless entry" = you have to push a button to lock/unlock it.. it's not triggered by you just walking close to it (although I'm sure there are some like this, that isn't what keyless entry is).

    Actually, keyless entry also refers to using a remote to lock and unlock the car. An example are all the cars sold in the 90's and 2k's with "Keyless Entry". arebelspy and I were confused at how a convential keyless entry system can be used for the OP's question.

    The search of RFID come with a few results but most of them led to some kind of bluetooth device or something that required computer interaction. I was something that isn't connected to the computer at all.

    My alarm (viper 691xv) has keyless entry, but doesn't do what I'm wanting at all.

    I know what I'm talking about, but it's just I don't know what it's called. I will do some more searching on RFID, but if anyone comes across a link that looks like what I am trying to use please post it!
