The folks at Zenesis Security Systems have been busy lately, dreaming up all sorts of cool new technology to provide more security and convenience to our lives. To that end, this is the new ZN-302AS security and remote start system. According to Zenesis, the system is designed for “the mature enthusiast who demands function, form and style.”
The Z-Matic Turbo Timer is a new feature that goes far beyond a simple preset idle-on time. The Z-Matic system was developed hand in hand with turbocharger experts, and actually actively monitors the recent driving conditions, and adjusts theamount of idle time accordingly. A quick trip to the corner store may only need a 15 second turbo idle time, but a hurried drive to work or a high speed freeway run may need several minutes of idle time to cool the turbo properly. With Z-Matic, you always get the right cool down time, no wasted fuel idling needlessly, and no burned bearings from not enough cooling! There is evenan “Extreme” mode, for track days!
Variable Voltage Sensing Technology (VVST) is another innovative idea from Zenesis. There are two ways of installing a remote starter, either using Tach Sensing, or Voltage Sensing. Tach sensing is generally the most reliable and preferredmethod, but takes significantly longer to install. Voltage sensing has worked okay in moderate climate areas, but has problems for people who need remote starting because of extreme climate conditions. The VVST system does not use a pre-set cranking time. Instead, Zenesis VVST uses proprietary algorithms to determine the precise voltage the car needs to start, according to all the variables, including temperature, resulting in clean stable starting each and every time.
People familiar with Zenesis probably already know about their Z-Pass Touch system, but for the rest of you, the Z-Pass system allows you to lock and unlock your car, or even arm and disarm the alarm by entering your private code on the touchpad. This can be an incredibly handy feature if you accidentally lock your keys in the car, or if you want to secure your keys in the car while you go shopping or to a club. Remote control battery gone dead? No problem with Z-Pass! Even loaning your car to a friend means they can return it, and lock the keys inside, and you can use Z-Pass to retrieve them at your convenience. It’s an extremely convenient feature of the ZN-302AS, and provides the ultimate in peace of mind!
