Every time winter rolls around, we’re reminded just how much of a blessing remote start truly is. Before remote start, drivers in cold winter climates everywhere had no choice but to physically go out to their cars 10 or 15 minutes before starting their morning commute, start the car manually, and then trudge back inside to finish their morning coffee while the cockpit slowly came up to temp. Often, the whole song and dance proved to be more trouble than it was worth, prompting drivers to skip the warm-up procedure altogether, climb into an ice-cold cabin, and start driving to work in frigid, agonizing discomfort.

Now, remote start technology means that drivers can easily start their cars warming up from the comfort of their own homes, so that by the time they’re ready to depart, the cockpit is nice and cozy.

It’s a perk of modern car ownership that many of us have learned to take for granted, but still one that not quite everyone gets to enjoy. So what do you do if you’re one of the many Hyundai, Kia, or Genesis owners without factory remote start? You get the most advanced, easiest-to-install aftermarket remote start kit on the market for Hyundai/Kia vehicles: MyKey Premium.

MyKey Premium was developed specially for modern Hyundai, Kia, and Genesis models with push-button start. Whether a car has an engine start button or a traditional key tumbler may seem like a trivial detail, but without getting too technical, it has real implications for the takeover procedure – how the vehicle remits control to the driver, allowing them to put the transmission in Drive and take off. Sorting out that part of the process can get a bit complicated, depending on the hardwired logic designed by the manufacturer.

And that’s why MyKey Premium is, simply put, the best aftermarket remote start option for Hyundai, Kia, and Genesis owners everywhere: because the engineers at MyKey Premium have studied the problem, and come up with the best, most well-integrated and easy-to-install system possible for those brands. In fact, one of the company’s goals in creating their remote start kit was to develop something that could be installed easily at home, saving owners the time and expense of a trip to their local car audio shop. That means no cutting or splicing wires, and no programming on your end. It also means that the remote start integrates neatly into the factory key fob; just tap the lock button twice and the vehicle will start automatically.

The best part: when you’re finally ready to start your commute, you don’t need to worry about hitting the engine start button or restarting the engine. Just hop in, depress the brake pedal, put it in gear, and you’re good to go. Your Hyundai, Kia, or Genesis will stay running for up to 15 minutes after remote starting, at which point if you haven’t started driving, it will shut itself off to save fuel.

MyKey Premium even includes an optional proximity lock/unlock feature that unlocks the car automatically as you approach with the factory fob, and locks it again after you walk away.

But how simple is MyKey Premium to install, really? Just check out this short video on YouTube that walks you through the process of installing the system on a Hyundai Tuscon. It’s as easy as unclipping a small plastic panel under the glove box and matching a few color-coded wire harness connectors. The company has videos to demonstrate the installation process on nearly every compatible model, but if you happen to have a model that isn’t covered by an install video, MyKey Premium provides detailed PDF instructions, and their staff will be happy to work with you if you encounter any difficulties.
