Firstech was founded in Anchorage, Alaska in 1995 when our founder, Jason Lee, opened an automotive detail and stereo shop. Lee saw an opportunity to create a new brand of remote starters, which offered better features and a more tech-friendly installation experience. This led to the creation of Firstech and the company’s flagship brand: Compustar.
Since relocating to Seattle, Washington in 2003, Firstech has continued to be a leading innovator in the mobile electronics industry, being the first-to-market with several game-changing technologies.
As a result of Firstech’s continued innovation, we’ve been honored with six CES Innovations Awards, three Mobile Electronics Top Vendor Awards, and an inclusion on Seattle Business Magazine’s “Top 100 Best Places to Work”.
That all said, Firstech’s success over the past 20 years has been fueled and sustained by the partnerships we have established with our retailers and distribution partners. With their support, we are confident that we can offer the best products and the best service.
Firstech solutions are available at over 2,000 retail locations across North America.
Remote start systems simulate the same engine starting sequence as your car key, but without the physical key in the ignition. This is made possible with a Compustar remote start control module and long-range RF remote.
When you tap a button, such as "remote start" or "lock", on your Compustar long-range RF remote, it sends that command to the control module inside of your vehicle. This control module then speaks with your vehicle's internal computer to control your vehicle's components, including the engine.
The DroneMobile X1 MAX adds LTE and GPS connectivity to any Compustar remote starter or alarm, enabling unlimited range control and tracking from your smartphone. Watch the DroneMobile Video to see how DroneMobile keeps you, your vehicles, and your family connected!
