You will need remoteKEY to provide alarm emulation.
Here are the product features of smartTOP from our website:
Remote Control of Convertible Top
Control your convertible top conveniently by using your original factory remote control key or key fob. No additional remote control devices are required to open and close your convertible/cabriolet from a distance.
Operate Top While Driving
Forget about the days you had to pull over to open or close your convertible top! Thanks to smartTOP you can now open or close your top while driving at speeds up to 35 mph.
One-Touch Power Top
With the smartTOP one-touch convertible top automation you no longer need to hold the top button to open or close your convertible top. Now you can tap the button and your top opens or closes automatically. This feature also allows your hands to remain free and you are able to focus on your driving.
Remote Folding Mirrors
Remote fold-in mirrors for those equipped with Premium package through the double-click of the lock button on your factory key.
Configure the features and functions of the smartTOP module to suit your personal preferences. All stored settings are retained even when the battery is removed.
Setup Menu in the Vehicle Display
You may configure the settings of your smartTOP module directly using the display of your factory on-board computer (dash) display. The individual options are displayed in plain English.
You can deactivate the smartTOP module completely. This allows you to loan your vehicle to others that may not be familiar with the smartTOP features. The passive mode will allow factory electronic test equipment to be utilized without causing irregularities in their read-outs.
In addition to the intelligent convertible top control, some smartTOP modules provide additional functions that you can easily learn to operate. Specific details and availability of the individual functions depend on the vehicle make and model.
Reversible Plug-in Installation
Every smartTOP module is shipped with all parts required and ready to install. The plug and play installation is completed without cutting any wires. A smartTOP installation may be completely removed at any time allowing you to sell or return your leased vehicle to its original condition.
Module is fully compatible with all e93 models - including those equipped with Comfort Access.
