How does keyless entry work on cars?
The keyless entry door lock, which uses a fob to open the door, is one of the most frequent types of keyless entry. A key fob is a tiny device that may be carried on a keychain and used to remotely lock and unlock a vehicle. It is also known as a remote or transmitter. The key fob delivers a signal to the car, which enables the driver entry.
The use of smartphones to unlock automobile doors is another common kind of keyless access. Many modern smart vehicles include a technology that allows drivers to remotely lock and unlock their vehicle using their smartphone. This, however, is not true for all vehicles.
