Well, the first thing I do when I get home is drop my keys/remote in a basket by the door. I almost never have one in my pocket at home.
Secondly, even if I did, accidently butt-dialling the tiny remote-start button itself 3 times in a row is damned unlikely in my experience. It just won't happen.
I love mine; I have them on both my trucks. Cold winter mornings? No problemo.
Leave the heat and fan on high when you park, and hit the button 10 minutes before you leave. Warm and toasty.
Hot summer day? Leave the windows cracked, and the AC on high. I can start mine from a hundred yards away. By the time I get to the car, it's not the oven that another car would be.
But then, I guess that's the whole point, isn't it?
