Re: Remote Control

I could think of many apps..
Unlock / lock the shed (additional hardware required for the shed lock mechanism)
Household lighting controls (handy if you're away - you could setup a random light changing pattern)
Heating controls
Car start in the morning and heat up
Unlock the front door instead of needing keys
Lots of other uses too if I could even afford one  Roll eyes
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Re: Remote Control

Currently are there any park assist systems that control gearbox, clutch, brake and accelerator?
