Bah! It's a bust! - The Rancho Commons — LiveJournal
Note to self: no whining, no slacking
Bah! It's a bust!
Okay, I got excited (too quickly) the other day when I posted about being able to unlock remote entry car locks over the cell phone. Tonight, I did an extra 4 hours at work and called Allie when I got out to the parking deck to leave work. I told her to try using the remote over the phone to unlock the doors. It didn't work even though we tried numerous times.

Apparently, when we tried it at home, the remote really was able to unlock the doors from the farthest corner inside the house. I'm surprised it worked this well, but apparently it did. So, you can try this should you lock yourself out of the car, but I wouldn't count on it actually working if I were you! Sorry.

I did the test yesterday too and meant to post about it. Larry went to the gas station and while there, I called and we tried it. It didn't work. We had done it in the house and it worked fine, but realized yesterday that it worked just because the signal goes that far. Which is cool to know anyway. I was going out on the porch and pointing the remote to lock my car but now I can lay on the bed while watching TV and lock it. ha!
