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

  • Beep & Flash.

  • Remote Climate.

  • Vehicle Security Remote Lock/Unlock.

  • Vehicle Security Remote Alarm Reset.

  • Vehicle Wake Up.


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

Beep & Flash:

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


Responsibility remains the driver's to comply with all regulations in force regarding the use of vehicle horns.

Remote Climate:

With remote climate, the engine of an automatic transmission vehicle can be started remotely, to run for up to 30 minutes. The feature provides a comfortable temperature inside the cabin in advance of the driver entering the vehicle. Press the Engine START button 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 boot 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 a remote engine start. Responsibility remains the driver's to know 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, an error message displays on the phone screen. 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 re-locks 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 vehicle's current position.


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


Responsibility remains the driver's to know the location of the vehicle and to make sure that the vehicle is secured.

Vehicle Wake Up:

The InControl Remote system enters a low power mode, 96 hours after the last engine stop, this is to conserve vehicle battery life.

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


The Vehicle Wake Up feature cannot be set once the InControl Remote system has shut down.
