Directed Electronics broadened the reach of its Viper SmartStart to Android smartphones so that the remote start app now works with the iPhone, BlackBerry and Android phones.
“With this app release, our Viper SmartStart solution is available to more than 75% of all smartphone users,” said Kevin Duffy, president of Directed Electronics.
The SmartStart lets you start your car from your smartphone. You can also lock and unlock the doors, arm/disarm a security system, open the trunk and hit the panic alarm from the phone.
The free app requires a $299 module for the car and a $30 annual service fee plus a remote start system. If you don’t already have a remote start system the package price with module is $499.
