I created a simple internet based remote car starter using the Spark Core. The Core supplies an API and I have written an iOS app so far to use it. I plan on making more (and hopefully fun) client apps. Maybe an app for the Pebble watch.

The system does work. I have to make an enclosure for everything and install a second battery in the car to keep everything powered 24/7. A temp sensor is included (it’s slightly buggy.) I don’t have plans yet to integrate with ODB2. One thing this really needs is something to sense that the car is on.
Let me know what you think, and thanks for making the Spark Core! I have wanted to do this for a while and the Core made it so easy.
