I wouldn't operate it via BT either. But, that is what the signal inputs are for. You would use a momentary button to trip the signal that energizes the starter motor. You could also use an RFID to trip the signal that energizes the fuel pump and use that as the "key". BT is mainly for programming and real time telemetry for those interested in that. BT is not going to be required for use of things that you need to interact with regularly. We are wearing gloves so digging out your phone to do stuff would make this product pretty annoying. Something I have no intention of it being.

There are 4 signal inputs that can identify two states each (ground and 12V but not at the same time). So that gives you somewhere between 4 and 8 signals depending on your creativity in designing your setup.
