LoJack introduces SureDrive to the market

LoJack has introduced SureDrive to the market – an on-car connected car security platform which claims to make drivers’ lives easier and more secure. SureDrive helps protect your vehicle from theft but has convenience applications that could prove useful to drivers.

The conventional LoJack system uses a radio signal transmitter in your car that can be tracked when a car is reported stolen. SureDrive, however, is based on a GPS system installed in your vehicle that is accessed, configured, and controlled with a smartphone app.

Tripwire Early Warning and Stolen Vehicle Assist are two of SureDrive’s headline features. Tripwire allows the vehicle owner to set a configurable security perimeter around the vehicle. If the vehicle moves outside that perimeter the owner is immediately alerted. If the car is stolen, the owner can contact law enforcement via the smartphone app.

SureDrive

Instant Crash Notification (ICN) uses sensors and algorithms to detect crashes. If a crash occurs, an alert is sent to a monitoring agency that can call in emergency assistance if needed.

The SureDrive Real-Time Location feature, lets the owner track the exact location of their vehicle. A related feature called My Locations allows the driver to configure up to six locations for alerts, so that any time the vehicle enters or exits one of the configured locations, an alert is sent to whomever you choose. So a text could be sent to your kids telling them that you have arrived to pick them up from school, for example.

SureDrive is a dealership option installed at the time of new car purchase.

SureDrive complements but does not replace the traditional and proven LoJack stolen vehicle recovery system (SVR).

LotSmart by LoJack is a related new product which uses the same GPS hardware as SureDrive. LotSmart provides car dealerships with a location-based inventory management tool for streamlining operations and protecting cars on the lots.

About leo

I've been designing & developing web sites since the dawn of the web! My online work began with the design & creation of the first website for the UK patent office (amongst others). I worked for various companies then spent 3 years at 'Pauffley' creating annual reports & corporate sites for various global clients including BP, Unigate & Allied Domecq. I then set up my own company, initially concentrating upon online games & interactive sites. Major clients at this time included BBC, Disney, Ford & a range of corporate companies. I've worked as a contractor/freelance for various marketing agencies; creating designs from scratch or working from their initial print campaigns, often producing the initial page layouts in xhtml or developing the full site ready to launch. I remain hands-on and happy to work at any level of the design process, from concept design to complete site production. If you'd like to discuss an upcoming project do get in touch.
