Viper SmartStart: turn the car on and off via iPhone – Macitynet.it
Finally we find a parking lot and, only after crossing the street, we realize that we have not activated the closure but the remote control is unfortunately already out of range. These other minor inconveniences are a thing of the past for car enthusiasts, equipped with iPhones living in the United States. The Viper SmartStart solution consists of a free application for the Apple smartphone and a GSM reception and control system for the vehicle that must be installed by a professional on the car we want to control remotely.
The car kit available in two $ 299 models for cars already set up for the Viper solution, or in the more expensive $ 499 package to make any vehicle ready with the SmartStart solution. Once the free application is installed, our favorite smartphone turns into a super remote remote control for one or more vehicles. The iPhone screen divided into 4 sections: just touch the desired one to open and close the car, turn the engine on and off, start and stop the alarm. The complete integration of the system with the vehicle and with the iPhone can even send push notifications to the smartphone to signal the activation of the alarm and the other most important events.
Unlike traditional remote controls, the SmartStart solution works by exploiting a connection via GSM cellular network. This means that it is possible to control the car from any distance, but also that to use the SmartStart service, an annual subscription of 29 dollars must be paid: the first year included in the package price. We remind you that at the moment the Viper SmartStart system for iPhone available only in the United States: for more information refer to this web page.
