Omega Research & Development Technologies, Inc. Enhancements to the 70-Series Remote-Start line

Omega's product development team announces Enhancements to the 70-Series Excalibur Remote Start line. Enhanced units are already in distribution.

Douglasville, Georgia – April 3, 2018 –The 70-Series is already Omega’s most advanced Remote-Start line ever. Omega takes a populist stance by including high end & high-leverage features across the entire line, including the “entry” price point units. No other maker packs the entire product line with the latest tech. Most stack the middle and higher ended models, and offer a stripped down unit at lower price points. Since all Omega “Excalibur” 70-Series units are flashable, you can easily update the main unit’s firmware when prepping for installation using the site. This way, your inventory never gets old.

Enhancements include:

  • 40 percent Improved battery life on the LED 2-Way controller (included in RS-475-3DB & AL-1775-3DB).
  • Instant response timing on the 1-Button RF-11EDP RF Extender kit (For use with a compatible interface module and Data Start kits)
  • Plug & Play compatibility with 3rd party telematics platforms such as “My Car” & “DRONE."

Omega wants the Excalibur Remote Start units to be the core of every install, regardless of whose accessories you want to use. So we play nice with all. And since all 70-Series units have two independent data ports, we play nice with multiple accessories.

70-Series highlights:

  • All Omega 70-Series models include a patent pending Vehicle Learn procedure that will correct common installation errors. It will identify all connected IGNITION, ACCESSORY, & START circuits and if needed reconfigure the outputs to match the vehicle's ignition sequence automatically. It will poll any accessories or bypass modules connected to the data ports & automatically switch to the matching protocol. It will also identify & automatically switch to the best available engine detection method (data tach, conventional tach wire, or voltage) & sample idle rpm (when needed).

  • With 70-Series, Omega is first in adding a built-in Accelerometer (patent pending). All “3D” models are equipped with a 3D accelerometer BUILT into the window mount antenna for extra safety when manual transmission starting. If during the remote start attempt the accelerometer senses any movement, it will abort the attempt. Having the 3D accelerometer in the window mounted antenna is far superior to having it as a plug-in sensor due to its isolated & rigid install location. It won’t be susceptible to normal engine vibration that can cause a false positive, shutting down your remote start attempt. This is a major refinement in the user experience.
  • All 70-Series models come standard with "Cold-Temperature" start & "Low-Battery Voltage" start, including the "entry level units". These are very useful functions that can help users avoid unpleasant mornings on really cold days!
  • All 70-Series Starters have Two Independent Self-Learning Dataports, so you never need to hardware your Telematics device. Both support both the iDatalink & DBI protocols, so you can mix & match the modules and tracking devices you’re plugging in. Systems with a "B" in the part number also include a BLADE slot for use with our BLADE interface cartridges (OL-BLADE-AL64 or OL-BLADE-TB)
  • All 70-Series Starters are flashable using a PC and the site. This means that the installer can update the remote start unit’s firmware, and set the programmable features. This is insurance against inventory obsolescence. 


Some 70-Series models are equipped with the "1+1" remote control:  Industry wide, the 1-Button remote control is attractive to users who desire a smaller remote, and fewer unused buttons. As this 1-Button segment grows, but more commands are added to the 1-Button remote control, users have to remember an array of button press combinations to activate different functions.

To give you an example, press and release for START, and press & hold for Lock/Unlock, or press 2 times within 3 seconds for... etc. Also, multiple button presses and Press and Hold combinations reduce the remote’s transmitting range.  The 1+1 remote solves this by offering the traditional large START button, and also a smaller dedicated Lock/Unlock button at the bottom, all without increasing the size of the traditional 1-Button remote, and maximizing the transmitting range. It is intuitive and very user friendly.

All 70-Series Omega remote start units have a built-in Security Suite (defaulted off on units that part numbers start with “RS”). This means that every Omega starter has a built in alarm that can be set up with no additional labor if the interface module you use provides door status. It can also be layered for more protection by adding the AU-84TDPB “data” Shock sensor. This sensor has analog door status inputs in case the interface module used does not provide door status. Thus every Omega 70-Series starter can be turned into an Alarm/Remote Start COMBO unit.

"3D" units are 2-way Ready, that means that all 1-Way "3D" units come with a 2-way antenna! So to upsell the sale, just learn in a compatible 2-way controller like the enhanced 2-way LED hand held controller.

Omega's 70-Series is the most advance Remote Start in the industry, bar none. It’s also the most installer friendly, and user friendly system as well. And since every unit is flashable, you can keep your unit current with the latest updates, insuring a more pleasant experience for all.
