Start your car from virtually anywhere with your iPhone! As seen in the iPhone TV ads.

Making the cloud-connected car a reality

"The coolest thing at the Consumer Electronics Show"

"Without a doubt, one of the coolest apps I've ever seen"

- Free app includes SmartPark parking spot finder, parking meter reminder, and guest membership in Viper Motor Club.
- When combined with a Viper SmartStart module in your car, you can start, lock and unlock your car from virtually anywhere. Receive push or text notification if your car alarm goes off (when installed with a Viper security system). You can even control your compatible home security system in one convenient, easy to use app.
- When combined with a Viper SmartStart GPS module, you can also locate your car, share activity on Facebook (because your car needs friends, too), and set safety notifications if your car is speeding or goes where it's not supposed to go.
- New for 3.0, add a Viper SmartStart Bluetooth Module for lightning-fast response when closer to your vehicle, even when parked outside of cell network coverage.
- Also new for 3.0, cloud-connected features such as SmartSchedule and real-time Status makes the integration of car and smartphone more powerful than ever before.

Are you tired of carrying around another clunky remote control on your keychain, or finding yourself out of range when you really need to warm up or cool down your car before getting in? Now you can securely remote start, lock/unlock, or find your car just by pushing a button on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, using the exciting new Viper SmartStart app from Directed, the leader in vehicle security and remote start. And, now the same convenient app also lets you arm and disarm your compatible home security system.

Includes these FREE features (no hardware or service plan required):

- SmartPark Ever forgotten where you parked? SmartPark saves the location for you every time you lock your doors with Viper SmartStart.

- Viper Motor Club - Locked out? Need a tow? We've got your back. Download the app and sign up for a FREE guest membership to the Viper Motor Club and get 24/7/365 access to the Viper Motor Club's 30,000 licensed service providers.

Download the free app and check it out.

The simple graphical interface gives you control over the following features of your installed Viper remote start or security/remote start system:

- Lock/arm
- Unlock/disarm
- Remote car starter
- Trunk release
- Panic or car finder
- Aux channels

With Viper SmartStart GPS, add family-friendly features such as HotSpot and Speed alerts so you get notified if your kids go somewhere they arent supposed to, or drive unsafely.

How do you get Viper SmartStart? Just follow these three simple steps:

1) Download the free Viper SmartStart app
2) Get SmartStart installed in your car (see for more information and where to buy Viper SmartStart).
3) Set up your SmartStart account

Thats all there is to it. Download the app and play around with the demo to see how it works.

- Is my car secure when I remote start it? Yep, we've been doing this a long time. The car is started, but only you can drive it away.
- What is Viper Motor Club? It's our roadside assistance program that is included with every SmartStart Secure service plan. Guest members sign up for free membership and pay only $79 per incident. Secure Plan subscribers get free roadside assistance included with their service plan.

Customer Reviews

Don't know how I ever lived without my SmartStart Sys (4 stars)
I really love that I can start my car from my office without ever leaving my desk. With my old remote start I would have to leave my office, go down to the ground level and walk out of my office building and head towards the parking lot in order to start the car.

It came in hand a few time when I needed to let someone in my car, I just unlocked it and then relocated the car once they were done.

Love the new app, it responds

it rocks! (5 stars)
Been a SmartStart user for over two years and can't live without it. Upgraded to a SmartStart GPS and use the Hotspot alert all the time now. I see lots of people whining about silly stuff, but my system works everytime and my car is warm when I get in, so that's all that matters to me :)

UPDATE 6/2012:
System has been rock solid reliable for me. 3.0 adds some pretty awesome features. Car status is a no-brainer. SmartSchedu
