How do I start my 2017 Honda Pilot with a key remote?

I bought a used 2017 Honda Pilot and the dealership listing said it can be started using the remote attached to the key. I haven’t been able to figure out how to do this yet and was wondering how can I start my Honda remotely?

To use the remote engine start feature on your Honda Pilot, you need to press the lock button and then hold down the engine button (resembles an open circle with an arrow on one end) until you hear the vehicle start.
Once started, the engine will run for 10 minutes. To extend the time for another 10 minutes, you will have to repeat the process before the engine turns off.
To stop the engine, hold down the engine button. While running, the climate control system will run, the security system will remain on, and the lights and accessories will remain off. If you are having trouble utilizing the feature, you should consult the owner’s manual for information specific to your vehicle.
While reviewing all the features of your new car, you should also review your car insurance policy to make sure you have the proper coverage.
