mobile phone car unlocking

Recommended Posts

i found this today and was wondering if anybody had tried it


Have you locked your keys in the car? Does you car have remote keys?



This may come in handy someday. Good reason to own a cell phone:


If you lock your keys in the car and the spare keys are at home, call


someone at home on their cell phone from your cell phone.


Hold your cell phone about a foot from your car door and have the person


at your home press the unlock button, holding it near the mobile phone on


their end. Your car will unlock. Saves someone from having to drive your


keys to you. Distance is no object. You could be hundreds of miles away,


and if you can reach someone who has the other "remote" for your car, you


can unlock the doors (or the trunk).


Editor's Note: *It works fine! We tried it out and it unlocked our car over a cell phone!"*

So the phone was acting as an aerial for the keyfob.


Doubt it.


I'm even dubious about how this would work with an ultrasonic keyfob. Voice down a mobile phone is hugely compressed and concentrates on just the frequencies required, higher or lower than normal speech are unlikely to be transmitted to the other end at all. Standard modem frequencies would probably go, but ultrasonic .... I dunno ....

iirc the passband on a normal telephone system is 0.3-to 3.4KHz (and i can't see why a mobile would be any different) as this is where the majority of "information" is in human speech. Therefore I would think it highly unlikely that a ultrasonic key fob would work as a human would have to be able to "hear it" in order for it to be transmitted over the phone.
