The availability and functionality of the Remote Premium features depends on the specification of the vehicle and the market in which the vehicle is used.


Remote Premium is only available as part of Connect. Connect is only available in selected markets


When an InControl account is set up, the user of the account creates a PIN which is required for InControl features.

Remote Premium enhances the Remote Essentials features with the addition of:

  • Beep & Flash

  • Remote Climate

  • Vehicle Security Remote Lock/Unlock

  • Vehicle Security Remote Alarm Reset

  • Wake Up Timer


The Wake Up Timer feature is available for both Remote Essentials and Remote Premium.

Beep & Flash:

The Vehicle Status page is the home screen for the Jaguar InControl Remote smartphone app. With Remote Premium, Beep & Flash is added to the screen. Beep & Flash locates the vehicle by flashing the vehicle’s lights and sounding the horn.


The driver is responsible for complying with all regulations in force for that country, regarding the use of vehicle horns.

Remote Climate:

Remote Climate allows the engine of an automatic transmission vehicle to be started remotely and to run for up to 30 minutes. The Remote Climate feature provides a comfortable temperature inside the cabin in advance of the driver entering the vehicle. Press the Engine START soft key on the Remote Climate page and enter a PIN. A target temperature can be set.

Remote climate does not function if any of the following conditions exist:

  • The vehicle's fuel level is low.

  • The vehicle's battery charge level is low.

  • The vehicle is not locked.

  • A window, door, bonnet, or the tailgate is open.

  • The engine has been manually started.

  • A system error occurs with a required vehicle system.

  • A theft has been reported to the stolen vehicle monitoring centre.

  • The vehicle's alarm is sounding.

  • A crash event has been detected.

  • The hazard warning lights are switched on.

  • The automatic transmission is not in Park (P).

  • The brake pedal is pressed.


Some markets may prohibit the use of remote engine starting. The driver is responsible for knowing if this function can legally be used.


Remote Climate is also available for vehicles fitted with a timed climate system. When the vehicle specification does not support remote engine starting, the timed climate system may be used to support cabin pre-conditioning. The condition also applies if the vehicle originated in a market with legal restrictions on remote engine starting.

Vehicle Security:

Vehicle Security allows the user to lock and unlock the vehicle remotely. If either lock or unlock cannot be performed, the phone screen displays an error message. For added security, this function requires a PIN code to be entered.

When the vehicle is locked remotely, it is secured to the maximum possible level allowed in the market in which the vehicle was intended for original sale.


When any window(s) is in an open position, the vehicle does not lock remotely. In some markets, remote closing of windows is not permitted.

When the vehicle is unlocked remotely, it relocks after 45 seconds if no door or aperture is opened. When an alarm alert is received, the vehicle's alarm can be reset from the owner's current position.


Regardless of which screen is currently displayed, if the vehicle's alarm is sounding, a pop-up screen is displayed with an option to reset the alarm. The alarm may also be reset via the Vehicle Security screen.


The driver is responsible for knowing the location of the vehicle and for making sure that the vehicle is secured.

Wake Up Timer:

The Remote Essentials and Remote Premium features enters a low power mode 96 hours after the last engine stop. The low power mode action conserves vehicle battery life.

When the vehicle is parked for an extended period, e.g., when on vacation or on a business trip, the owner can use the Wake Up Timer feature. The feature wakes up the Remote Essentials and Remote Premium features on the selected date. Any date within a 30 day period can be chosen. Once Wake Up Timer is set, the Remote Essentials and Remote Premium features enters the low power mode after 60 hours. Battery power is then reserved for the wake up.


The Wake Up Timer feature cannot be set once the Jaguar InControl Remote smartphone app has shut down.
