Viper Announces App to Remotely Start, Lock and Unlock Your Car from Apple Watch and Android Wear

Last updated:

Viper has announced that Viper SmartStart, the app that gives users the ability to start, lock, unlock and track their car from virtually anywhere in the world with their smartphone, will integrate Android Wear and Apple Watch accessibility in early 2015.

Viper made the announcement at the 2015 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

Viper’s smart watch functionality will be available for free download for Android and iOS through the company’s newest version of the Viper SmartStart 4.0 app. Viper SmartStart 4.0 is compatible with all Viper SmartStart hardware, which means all existing and future Viper SmartStart users who purchase an Apple Watch or Android Wear product will be able to take advantage of the smart watch features at no additional cost.

“Wearable technology will give Viper SmartStart users the ability to feel connected with their vehicle in an even more accessible and convenient way,” said Frank DeMartin, Senior Vice President of Development and Engineering for Viper.

“Whether people choose to use Viper SmartStart through their smartphone, smart watch or both, the updated Viper SmartStart 4.0 app will enhance their ability to seamlessly communicate with their car.”

To increase the functionality of Viper SmartStart for the smartphone, Viper SmartStart 4.0 is updated with a more intuitive home screen that offers faster access to the primary controls, including interactive overlays to walk customers through how to use the app.
