5 Year iPhone Anniversary

Today marks the 5th anniversary of the release of the iPhone and the day smartphones changed forever.  Whether you own an iPhone or not, it’s impossible to deny the affect it has had on the world.  Over 250 million units have been sold since it’s inception in 2007.  In honor of this milestone, I have created a list of the top 5 must-have iPhone accessories that are both innovative and not too heavy on the wallet.

Have you ever been taking a video on your iPhone and couldn’t fit everything that you wanted too?  This is a problem of the past with the Kogeto Dot!  This panoramic video add-on conveniently attaches to your iPhone 4/4S giving your video a 360 degree lens shot.  The attached lens is lightweight, durable, and can fit in the palm of your hand.  The Free LOOKER app is available in the app store in order to integrate the panoramic lens.  No longer will your videos be dull and 2D!

For all you music lovers out there, this accessory is especially for you!  The i.Fuzen HP-1 is a headphone amplifier, splitter and an extended, rechargeable battery all in one.  It will double your battery life while allowing you to play your favorite tunes with you and a friend.  With full USB pass through capability, this case will allow you to sync flawlessly with iTunes without the need to remove the iPhone.  The sleek and low-profile design makes this accessory one that you cant pass up.

If you own a Viper alarm/remote start on your vehicle, then it is possible for you to use your iPhone to remote start or lock and unlock your vehicle with the Viper VSM200.  Simply integrate this with your existing Viper alarms system and have the ability to control features from your iPhone such as trunk release, panic, car finder, and so much more.  You even get into the SmartStart Motor Club which is a Free 24/7/365 roadside assistance that is included with all SmartStart Secure service plans.  How can you pass that up?

One of the possible short-comings of the iPhone is the small, touchscreen keyboard.  If you’re the kind of person who needs to get a lot of writing done, then the Scosche freeKEY is exactly what you need.  This flexible, water resistant bluetooth keyboard creates a perfect writing surface for long durations of typing.  It is easy to roll up and tuck away allowing it to be used seamlessly on the go.  It includes a retractable cord for further convenience and the compact design makes it easy to use anywhere.

Kicker IK501

Last but certainly not least, the Kicker iK501 is the ultimate iPhone/iPod docking system.  It features two 5″ speaker with two separate 3/4″ tweeters.  Not only that but it features a 6″ square subwoofer on the back.  I’ve had the liberty of hearing this system in person and trust me it will not disappoint.  It plays low frequencies like no ones business and mid and high frequencies that are elegantly present. Also, it has RCA stereo outputs and an auxiliary jack making it a very versatile unit.  What more could you ask for?!

The future is certainly bright for the iPhone and pretty soon they’ll have apps that whiten teeth and perform lasik eye surgery.  Until then, these accessories are the next best thing!

Different Types of Car Alarms and Remote Start Systems

AutoPage C3-RS730 LCD

By Kyle D. – Product Specialist

Lets be honest, factory car alarms just don’t cut it. More often than not they don’t trigger and what good does it do if you aren’t near enough to hear the alarm go off? Alas, we have the technology, and with technology comes power. You have the power to install an aftermarket alarm system in your vehicle that has a higher sensitivity, 2-way paging function, and even remote start. There are many types of car alarm systems for you to choose from.

Standard Car Alarm:
A generic add on alarm system will come with a shock sensor, siren, and a remote control. A great example of a standard car alarm is the Viper 350 Plus.  These systems often come with a few features, such as starter kill, panic mode, and lock/unlock. A standard car alarm mimics your average factory alarm system, except with more control options

Car Alarms with 2-Way Paging:
2-Way paging car alarm systems go a step beyond the norm, and add two way communications to your alarm. Look at the Viper Responder 350 for an example of this. If you lock your vehicle, the remote will inform you that your vehicle was successfully locked. Likewise, if your vehicle is being broken into, the alarm will notify the owner that their vehicle is in trouble. 2-Way paging systems have range limitations with some going as far as 1-mile from its transmitter.

Car Alarms with Remote Start:
Starting your vehicle from a mile away is not only cool, it’s beneficial. Car alarm remote start systems combine car alarms with the ability to start your vehicle from a distance. The AutoPage C3 RS-665 is a great basic remote start system. If it’s snowing outside, you can turn your vehicle on to heat it up before you get to it or even cool it down under the summer sun. Security features are built in and active while your vehicle is running without its driver. If you have a turbo charger, some of these systems come with turbo timers that keep your vehicle running a few minutes after its been shut off.

Car Alarms with 2-Way Paging and Remote Start:
To get all the features in one package they have 2-way car alarm remote start systems that give you the best of all the worlds. Consider the AutoPage C3-RS730 LCD for an all-in-one system.  Remote start your vehicle and receive confirmation on your remote control that it started successfully. Lock and unlock your car, get temperature readings and more with these aftermarket alarm systems.
