Insurance companies would have a picnic if someone reported that they started the car remotely, then when they came out to the car, it was being driven off by the local crimegang. Probably not the best tool in a big city. I know that is an extreme example, but something you need to consider.
The Mopar remote start system is much more intelligent than you think. I used it in a Durango when I was in the USA last week.
Doors have to be locked, hood closed and vehicle in park for it to start. Then once it's on, you get in and press the start button, just like you would when you get into your JGC normally.
If you do not have a key, it will not continue to run. You cannot take it out of gear when it is started but you haven't pressed the start button, it's just like the car is off.
