Introduction

In today’s fast-paced world, ensuring the safety and security of our vehicles is of paramount importance. With advancements in technology, we now have the ability to monitor our vehicles in real-time, receive alerts about potential issues, and even integrate our vehicles seamlessly into our smart home security systems. Go Safer Security, powered by Alarm.com, presents Connected Car – an innovative solution that combines the power of a home security system with vehicle monitoring capabilities. In this article, we will explore the features, benefits, and technical specifications of Go Safer Security’s Connected Car, and how it can enhance the safety and security of your vehicle.

Understanding Connected Car

Connected Car is an extension of Go Safer Security’s home security system that plugs into your vehicle, providing a direct connection to its location, diagnostic status, and driver behavior. This integration allows you to stay one step ahead of emergencies, ensuring the well-being of your vehicle and the people driving it, even when you’re not present. With the Connected Car device and the Alarm.com app, you can have peace of mind knowing that you are always connected to your vehicle’s status.

Real-Time Vehicle Monitoring

One of the key features of Connected Car is its ability to provide real-time updates about your vehicle’s location, diagnostic health, and driver behavior. By utilizing a dedicated cellular connection and a backup battery, Connected Car ensures constant awareness, even when your vehicle’s engine is off. This real-time monitoring allows you to stay informed about any unexpected movements, indicating potential towing, collisions, or theft.

Driver Safety Alerts

Connected Car goes beyond just monitoring the vehicle’s location and diagnostics; it also provides driver safety alerts. With real-time notifications for sudden acceleration, hard braking, and excessive speeding, you can keep a safety-conscious eye on your loved ones, especially teenage drivers. These alerts help you ensure responsible driving behavior and prompt intervention if necessary.

Maintenance and Diagnostic Alerts

Prevention is always better than cure, especially when it comes to vehicle maintenance. Connected Car keeps you one step ahead of emergency repairs and rescues by providing maintenance alerts for issues such as low fuel, check engine light, and low battery. By addressing these alerts promptly, you can avoid surprise expenses and ensure the longevity of your vehicle.

Effortless Smart Home Integration with Enhanced Home Security Features

Connected Car not only communicates with you but also integrates with your Alarm.com-powered smart home system. This seamless integration enables convenient automation and enhances your overall smart home experience. For example, as you approach your home, Connected Car can automatically adjust the thermostat, turn on outdoor lights, and alert you to potential security mistakes like leaving the garage door open or front door unlocked.

Features and Benefits of Connected Car

Connected Car offers a wide range of features and benefits that enhance the safety, security, and convenience of your vehicle. Let’s delve deeper into each of these aspects:

Vehicle Location and Tracking

With Connected Car, you can track your vehicle’s location in real-time using the Alarm.com mobile app. Whether you’re concerned about the safety of your vehicle in a less-than-perfect parking spot or want to locate your vehicle if it has been towed, Connected Car’s location tracking feature provides you with the necessary information.

Diagnostics and Potential Repairs

Connected Car keeps you informed about your vehicle’s diagnostic health, allowing you to address potential repairs proactively. The device sends alerts for issues such as a check engine light, low battery, or low fuel. By addressing these alerts promptly, you can avoid unexpected breakdowns and costly repairs.

Driver Behavior Monitoring

For parents with teenage drivers, driver behavior monitoring is a valuable feature of Connected Car. The device provides real-time alerts for sudden acceleration, hard braking, and excessive speeding. These alerts enable you to have conversations with your teen about responsible driving habits and intervene if necessary.

Unexpected Movement Alerts

Connected Car’s unexpected movement alerts are designed to keep your vehicle safe from theft or unauthorized use. If your vehicle moves while the engine is off, indicating potential towing, collisions, or theft, you will receive an immediate alert on your Alarm.com app. This feature provides an added layer of security for your vehicle.

Seamless Integration with Smart Home Automation

Connected Car seamlessly integrates with your Alarm.com-powered smart home system, allowing you to create automation rules based on your vehicle’s location. For example, as you approach your home, Connected Car can automatically adjust the thermostat to your preferred temperature, turn on outdoor lights, and even send you alerts if you forget to close the garage door or lock the front door.

All-in-One Protection

Connected Car extends the protection of your home security system beyond the walls of your home. By integrating your vehicle into your Alarm.com system, you can ensure comprehensive security for both your home and your car. This all-in-one solution provides peace of mind, knowing that your loved ones and your valuable assets are protected.

Installation and Compatibility

Getting started with Connected Car is a straightforward process. The device easily plugs into your vehicle’s OBD-II port, which is a standard feature on vehicles manufactured since 1996. This simple installation eliminates the need for costly professional assistance, allowing you to set up the device yourself in a matter of minutes. In case your OBD-II port is already occupied, you can use a splitter to connect both devices.
