Keyless Technology

 

The German Automotive Club (ADAC) tested 24 different cars with the new Keyless Go technology for safety.

RemoteThe locking system Keyless Go is a technology built into new cars from leading car manufacturers such as BMW and Mercedes which allows the driver to open the door and start the car without reaching into his pocket for his key.

In a report released Thursday the ADAC tested 24 car models from 2015 from 19 different manufacturers, including Audi, BMW, VW, Toyota, Renault, and Ford.

The results were damning. They managed to illegally open every single car and drive it away within a few seconds.

Smartphone App to unlock and start Volvo

 

Would you like to use your phone to unlock and start your car. Volvo has announced it will offer consumers a smartphone app to unlock and start their Volvo, with the technology to roll out commercially from 2017.  Based around Bluetooth connectivity, the smartphone app will emulate all the functions of a conventional car key – including opening the boot and starting the engine. Volvo intends for the digital key app to be operable across multiple cars from the one smartphone (or more, if the owner wishes). This will support families with more than one Volvo in the garage.  This will be a very interesting trial and will have a large impact on Locksmithing as an industry, you can read more here.
