What Are Car Alarms That Connect to Mobile Apps?

Learn about car alarms that connect to mobile apps in this Howcast video with expert Movin' On.


Hi my name is Movin On, and I've been working in the field of car audio and mobile electronics for 8 over years. I've installed everything from navigation systems to full car stereo systems, remote starters, alarms, and beyond. To learn more, visit our web site at Today I am going to be sharing with you my knowledge on car audio and mobile electronics.

As smartphones become more popular, people want to find ways to integrate them with their vehicle. One of the best ways to do this is with Viper SmartStart or Compy Start Drone. Now these products allow you to start your car, lock your car, unlock and control your alarm system, directly from your iPhone, BlackBerry, or Android. You can start your car from almost any distance. You can monitor your security system from almost any distance. And you can ensure your doors are locked. A lot of these units feature GPS tracking, so you can check the location of your car at will. If you have children that drive your car or if you lent your car to somebody, this is a great feature because you can tell where it is. These apps typically have a yearly charge — very affordable — usually about 40 dollars a year. This gives you full access to GPS tracking and allows you to start the vehicle from anywhere. A great example I like to use is you're going to college, and it's a fifteen minute walk to your car. It's freezing cold out, you start your car when you hear the bell ring, you walk to it, you get in, and it's toasty. They can be added to almost any car that allows remote start and they give you an unprecedented level of security.
