Power locks/keyless entry

I purchased my 2012 Jk sport without the power package because at the time I wanted to save money and I really didn't care to be manually locking and unlocking my doors etc. but now after awhile I'm tired of locking and unlocking the tailgate. Can anyone suggest a good brand with easy DIY for a keyless entry? I found autoloc.com which has quite the selection.
Anyone know the difference between keyless entry, hands free keyless entry, and power locks? Because that website has all 3. All I want is to push a button for my doors to unlock/lock!! Lol

You might want to add remote start to your list. It might come in handy in colder climates. The other stuff I know nothing about.

That's one thing i DO have since I live up in northern Canada
but of course sometimes I have the whole rolling parking brake problem even though my handbrake clicks only 6 times, it still doesn't grab every time.

Does anyone know if the Sports are already pre-wired for upgrades like this?
You just need the parts to make it work? I just noticed when I was driving today that there's a wire that runs from under the dash on both sides to in my doors, I don't have power windows or locks so what could that be for?

That harness is so the computer knows is the door is open so it can turn on the dome light and warn you if any of the doors are slightly ajar.

I took off the panel on the tailgate and noticed there appears to be more woes that is need for the 3rd light. Im hoping that there is a lock module on it already and I can rig up a push button system to unlock it from a button on the dash. I need to find a wiring manual.
