United Kingdom 2007 Discovery 3 TDV6 HSE Auto Java BlackDiscovery 3
Bodsy’s FBH Remote Kits for Sale

Hi All,

As some of you know, I have been selling the Discovery 4 Retrofit Parts for the Remote Park Heater for some time on here: - http://disco3.co.uk/forum/topic142959.html

I have also been selling for some time, the BAS remote FBHIC controllers for D3.

Its well recognised that starting a warm car puts far less stress on the engine components than starting a cold car. Not to mention the benefits of getting in an already warming car so the heater warms up significantly quicker than normal!

Having looked about the market, I wanted to have a Sim/data version of the remote kits for controlling my own FBH and many customers had also been asking about Sim versions.

Many of you know that I don’t generally sell anything I haven’t road tested myself, so a few weeks ago I got myself the Atrox controllers and set about testing them to make sure they met the quality that I and my customers expect.
I’m pleased to say that they do and I have since been merrily installing these latest version Sim controllers.

So I can now offer :-

Discovery 3

Altox - Sim activated GSM/GPRS Fuel Burning Heater Controller with added GPS functionality - £229 inc 1st class post


Discovery 4


1) Genuine LR Parts Remote Kit - £199 inc 1st class post
2) Altox - Sim activated GSM/GPRS Fuel Burning Heater Controller with added GPS functionality - £229 inc 1st class post

Of course I also offer the service to fit all the above parts for you or post them out for you to self fit.

Just remember that the Discovery 4 options all require the Timed/Remote functionality to be added in order for it to work.
Again, thats an additional service I offer if you don’t have the electronic tools available to you.

The Sim activated kits require of course a Sim in order to work. I’m currently using EE Pay As You Go sims in these and can supply one in the kit for you to register.

My D4 LR Remote/Timed kit thread has plenty of info on how that works, so I'll concentrate on the SIM activated ones.


Text Activation
Simply Text "Start" to the Sim number in the controller and it will fire the FBH up. If you have the D4, then it will also activate the fans in the same way as the genuine kit.

Text "Start:30" if you want to run it for 30 minutes or change the number from anywhere between 10 and 120 minutes

If you want to stop the FBH, just text "STOP"

It's that simple. It doesn't need to be a particularly strong signal as text will work at the very weakest signals.


Or use the App




Not forgetting that you can also use the App to set the time that you want the FBH to come on.




Or you can use the App or the website.

Android

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ru.altox.heater

iOS
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/altox-heat...1&mt=8

Website
http://altox.ru/app/

GPS Tracker info
Select the Date, then click on the Map for the route and stops info.

Or just text STATUS and if you have the GPS version, you will also get a googlemap link to the current GPS location, Or look in the app!

I generally have all of the FBH controllers mentioned in stock and ready to ship to you or fit on my travels around the UK (and occasionally further afield)

Any questions, as always, just ask. Thumbs Up

I picked up one of these from Ian last Monday and fitted it yesterday to replace my BAS remote controller ( in itself a fine piece of kit)

I'm very impressed so far and very much suits my current needs - and the inner geek so went for the gps version and turned on tracking.

The apps allow you to set either regular times to start the heater or one shot.










As well as using the app to track your routes, I think upto a months worth are stored for free, you can register with the web based tracking program and see your progress. This also allow sub accounts so others can be given permission to see where you are, but not give them permission to activate the heater.

No, I've just tried. Not that bothered personally as I managed my sim via the internet.

Not yet, I have got them looking into UK process for Balance as it works different to the Russian process so you (mostly) cant use USSD to get the balance.

Ah, yes for the app, sorry, I read it as the website. It does work as you say if you turn the iPad. Thumbs Up

Amendment - yes it does give my credit on both the tracking app (Altox Server 2.0) and the iPhone and Android apps. Thumbs Up

I'm impressed with the data usage - or at least the lack of it!

I've tracking turned on and it has used 30p of my pre-pay SIM credit in a week (about 630miles) Thumbs Up

I've very tempted to get a tracker from them for my Spitfire Thumbs Up

Quick question Bodsy, is there any way of starting the Altox version if your in a zero phone reception area?

I was curious if there was anything you could do with the app from close by or something!! Embarassed

Theres a push button (included) you can wire in and use to activate it, or if you know you're going to be in a bad area (you'd have to have no phone signal at all for it not to work) then you could set the timed start before you get to the no signal area. Thumbs Up

I like the sound of that Very Happy

I'll ponder on it for a day or two but it looks like this could be my Christmas present from the missus sorted!!

Any idea how much credit it uses purely for starting, not the GPS version?

And last question, can the internal heaters be set to run in a D3 as they can in a D4?
