Smart Entry With Walk Away Auto Lock

October 19th, 2018 by

Honda seems to always be the first to try out new technology in many of their vehicles. This technology is designed to make our lives as the consumer much easier. The Smart Entry technology with Walk Away Auto Lock technology is designed to provide you with safety and security when you leave your vehicle. When you stop your vehicle and get out, your vehicle will lock itself automatically once you have walked away from it. You must be 2.5 meters away and have your keys with you. The vehicle locks and you don’t have to worry about forgetting to lock up your vehicle if you are in a hurry or just tired after a long day of work.

The Specifics of the System

If your vehicle currently has this system included in its package but you have not yet set it up, then you can get the ball rolling in just a few simple steps.

  • Head to your infotainment system and click on your home display.
  • Press the settings button.
  • Select ‘vehicle’.
  • Select the setup choice to keyless access.
  • Press the ‘Walk Away Auto-Lock’ choice.
  • Select ‘enable’ and hit ‘ok’.

Your vehicle is now all set up and you are ready to start using this technology.

How You Use Honda Walk Away Technology

Once you have set up this system then you don’t really have to do anything else except turn your vehicle off when you have arrived at your destination. Make sure that you have your key with you and start to walk away. When you arrive at 2.5 meters away from your vehicle then you will hear a beep. This means that your vehicle has locked itself. You use the key fob as normal to unlock your doors and enter your vehicle as normal.

Imagine getting out of your vehicle with a number of bags in your hand, your purse and a small child in tow. The last thing you have time to do is fumble with your keys and lock your vehicle doors. Before you know it the end of the day has come and you have forgotten to go back and lock your doors before bed. This leaves your vehicle quite vulnerable to theft and vandalism.
