Start your car from virtually anywhere, now, with your Windows Phone!
- Free app includes SmartPark parking spot finder, parking meter reminder, and guest membership in Viper Motor Club.
- When combined with a Viper SmartStart module in your car, you can start, lock and unlock your car from virtually anywhere. Receive push or text notification if your car alarm goes off (when installed with a Viper security system). You can even control your compatible home security system in one convenient, easy to use app.
- When combined with a Viper SmartStart GPS module, you can also locate your car, share activity on Facebook (because your car needs friends, too), and set safety notifications if your car is speeding or goes where it's not supposed to go. 

Are you tired of carrying around another clunky remote control on your keychain, or finding yourself out of range when you really need to warm up or cool down your car before getting in? Now you can securely remote start, lock/unlock, or find your car just by pushing a button on your smartphone, using the exciting Viper SmartStart app from Directed, the leader in vehicle security and remote start. And, now the same convenient app also lets you arm and disarm your compatible home security system.
Download the free app and check it out.
The simple graphical interface gives you control over the following features of your installed Viper remote start or security/remote start system:
- Lock/arm
- Unlock/disarm
- Remote car starter
- Trunk release
- Panic or car finder
- Aux channels

How do you get Viper SmartStart? Just follow these three simple steps:
1) Download the free Viper SmartStart app
2) Get SmartStart installed in your car (see for more information and where to buy Viper SmartStart). 
3) Set up your SmartStart account

    Cool while it lasted, about 3 months, updated itself and hasn't worked since. Waste of $79

    Great app for Windows Phone 8! Installed for my Cadillac Escalade, an awesome alternative over the GM onstar link option which is 20 bucks a month. As an installer my complaint is the aux channels. There are 5 aux channels on my 5904 alarm, 5 wires aux output. When connected to the smart star module they in reverse. In other words aux wire 5 on the alarm brain, equals aux #1 on this app. Very bizarre they would design this way. For those using window modules, aux relays or aux accessories, this is pertinent to be corrected or informed so the install is done correctly. A simple fix that will hopefully be corrected in an upcoming version.

    Many small UI/UX issues and several major bugs in this, which I reported directly to the publisher 9 months ago. One that makes the app PIN number totally worthless!! Still no fixes after so long. Also desperately needs push notifications. Such a shame, because the service/hardware is great but massively let down by the app.

    I checked the availability of viper smartstart before buying it and then purchased the hardware.funniest thing is that it says that signal has been communicated . when I go there I don't see it ON, this happens sporadically (mind u the signal strength is 4 bars) I try a couple of options of lock and unlock when I reach the vehicle and it also works. I have iphone without any cellular connectivity but with WiFi it works fine. It clearly throws back an update that the engine is ON. Probably this needs to be checked thoroughly in windows environment.

    I got the Viper installed back in November and have been waiting since then for the company to fix the time stamp for this app. I can't use the automatic timer on it and plus when I refresh to get an update on my phone on the status of my car, the time is wrong. Not sure if other people notice it or not, but this needs to be resolved asap! It's not fair for me to pay for this service and I can't use it to the full extent...
