Voxx Electronics Announces CarlinkBT Long Range Transmitter

HAUPPAUGE, NY & LAS VEGAS, NV – JANUARY 4, 2017 – LVCC, CENTRAL HALL BOOTH 13517-–VOXX Electronics Corporation (VEC) announced it has expanded its CarLink program to now include the CarLinkBT Long Range Transmitter. This new transmitter design communicates via Bluetooth to a smartphone then to the vehicle using LoRa RF technology to extend its operating range to over one mile without any additional monthly or annual fees.

CarLinkBT Long Range offers today’s most advanced convenience and security solution allowing users access to their vehicle without the use of a traditional remote control transmitter when combined with a Prestige, Code Alarm or Pursuit remote start, security or keyless entry system. The new transmitter concept was developed to eliminate the need to carry additional devices on your keychain. It’s extremely thin design and rechargeable battery were intended to “stick-on” the back of any smartphone device or placed inside of a briefcase/purse to provide two-way functionality to the CarLinkBT smartphone app to lock/unlock and start your vehicle with over one mile of operating range.

“The introduction of CarLinkBT has reinvented what remote start systems can now do by transforming a smartphone into a virtual transmitter with no monthly service fees.  We are excited to continue to introduce innovative telematics products to the remote start market,” said Aron Demers, Senior Vice President, VOXX Electronics Corporation.  “We believe CarLinkBT Long Range completes our CarLink Telematics offering, by giving the consumer three different and distinct control options – CarLinkBT with Bluetooth range of up to 100 feet, CarLinkBT Long Range for over one mile of operating range and CarLink Cellular with virtually unlimited operating range.  Never worry about being without access to your vehicle again with CarLink.

 The CarLinkBT Long Range Transmitter (ASCLBTLR) will be available Summer 2017 for an MSRP of $99.95. No monthly or annual fees required.
