With Connected Car and the Alarm.com mobile app, you can experience greater security, control, and peace of mind than ever before. This latest technology in alarm systems allows you to access your family or work vehicle from the palm of your hand using your smartphone. Your car is now connected to you at all times, meaning you are never left wondering what is going on when a family member or employee is driving your vehicle. With Connected Car’s location tracking, you also don’t have to worry about where you parked your car.
Connected Car is a huge asset for families and small businesses alike. It provides you with the information you need to make the best decisions around who drives your vehicle, when to schedule vehicle maintenance, and how to keep your vehicle, home, and business secure. In this post, we will take a deeper look at the most significant benefits of Connected Car for you and your business.
If you have a new driver in the family, then you know the worry and stress that can arise when they begin borrowing your car and leaving you at home. Finally, there is a reliable and immediate way to monitor your teen’s driving habits, allowing you to know if they’re staying safe on the roads or if they need to be reminded of the rules. With Connected Car, you can put your mind at ease. If your car is being driven irresponsibly, you’ll receive a real-time alert through the mobile app.
Excessive speeding, sudden acceleration, and hard breaking all trigger a real-time alert directly to your phone. This knowledge will allow you to confront your new driver about any dangerous driving decisions and, with your guidance, you can help them to make better choices in the future. Keeping your teenager (and your vehicle) safe and accident-free begins with having all the pertinent information.
Connected Car even allows you to see where your vehicle is by using location tracking. This means you can check in on your teen and know if they really are where they said they would be. In case of emergencies when your teen isn’t picking up their phone and you don’t know where they are, this location tracking can also be extremely helpful.
Good coaching and open communication, with a little help from the latest technology, will help keep your family’s newest driver safe on the road.
The features that enable you to check in on your teen’s driving habits can also be used to monitor the driving of your employees in company cars. You want to know if an employee is causing unnecessary wear-and-tear on your vehicle. With Connected Car’s real-time alerts for speeding, sudden acceleration, and hard braking, you’ll know when an employee needs to be confronted about their driving.
With Connected Car, you can view the previous routes taken by other drivers. This means you can find out if an employee is running personal errands on the clock. Previous trip information also means you can gauge fuel efficiency and adjust delivery routes, thus saving your business money and time.
Vehicle maintenance is a key part of avoiding both emergency repairs and stressful roadside breakdowns. Connected Car’s diagnostic alerts give you the opportunity to fix issues before they become expensive surprises. Maintenance alerts based on real-time data will be sent to your phone via the mobile app so you’ll know if the check engine light is on, if your car battery is low, or if you’re low on fuel.
When you park your vehicle, you want to know that it will be there when you get back—and in the same condition. Whether you’re parking in a familiar neighbourhood or a less-than-ideal part of the city, a bit of extra confidence can go a long way. Connected Car gives you just that.
Through their mobile app, you will receive real-time alerts if there’s any unexpected movement while you’re away from your vehicle. If your vehicle is being towed or moving while the engine is off, you will also be notified. Connected Car is always on, even if your car is turned off. It utilises a cellular signal and has a backup battery, so you will continue to get alerts regardless of whether your engine is running or not.
If you forget where you’ve parked, Connected Car location tracking will show you exactly where you left your vehicle.
Connected Car with Alarm.com connects your car to other security systems. With the mobile app, you can control not only your car, but also the systems for your home or business. This seamless integration allows you to conveniently monitor everything from your phone, no matter where you are.
You will be alerted of an open garage, unlocked front door, or other potential security mistakes that could be disastrous if left unresolved. Whenever you drive away from your home or business, you can be assured that you are locked up properly. Through the mobile app, you can even check if an employee forgot to lock the door or turn on the alarm.
If you’re on the way home, your Connected Car can adjust the thermostat in your house so it’s warm when you arrive. It can also turn on the outdoor lights so your driveway is illuminated.
With Connected Car and the Alarm.com mobile app, you have the tools to keep your family, business, and vehicle safer. You can now check in on your personal or company vehicle anytime and anywhere. Connected Car uses a backup battery that’s always on—even when your engine is off—and uses a cellular signal to send real-time notifications directly to your smartphone.
You will receive alerts of irresponsible driving, maintenance issues, unexpected movement near your vehicle, towing, and will even be notified if you forget to close the garage door or leave your front door unlocked. Since Connected Car integrates with your other security systems, you are protecting not just your vehicle and those driving it, but your home and business as well.
Whether you’re a small business owner or simply looking to keep your family safer, Connected Car will add a sense of security and control to your life that you won’t want to live without.
