Viper SmartStart 3.0, which was announced at this year’s CES, is finally available for download. Promising to serve as a “cloud-connected remote start system,” it brings several handy features to the table, including:
- SmartSchedule – which sends smart behavior-based alerts when it’s time to remote-start your car.
- Vehicle Status – so you can locate your vehicle with GPS, as well as know that it’s running, armed, locked, etc.
- Auxiliary Channels – ability to customize your app to interact remotely with any part of your car – for instance, you can roll down your windows/sunroof or blast the radio.
- Vehicle Diagnostics – alerts sent to your smartphone help you know the health of your car from the cloud.
