Archives For SmartSchedule

By Glenn Busse

Been talkin’ with (social media manager) Andrew and his crew on various things snakes, bugs and rock ‘n’ roll and he invited me to blog. I sat for days and blanked — then all of a sudden, it happened!

OK, admit it, sometimes when you wake up, life is like a movie …

It could be like the theme song from the Sopranos is playing “woke up this morning” and you got yourself a gun — or like what happened to me with my Viper SmartStart … I was jamming up a pretty sweet day, got my workout in, fav cup of java, Cold Play was jamming “Kill the DJ” and what??? My Viper SmartStart is talkin’ to me?

Gotta love it when technology is intuitive and does your work for you!

By the way, I’ve had a great freakin’ day — and my Viper SmartStart set me on my way …

Glenn Busse, also known as Moondawgster, is the Senior Vice President of Global Sales for Viper — and also likes all things involving snakes, bugs and rock ‘n’ roll (oh, and blogging ….)

Hey SmartStart fans, did you get the chance to play this cool new feature that rolled out with the Viper SmartStart 3.0 upgrade?

It’s called SmartSchedule, and the way we’re tagging it is that it’s “part weatherman, part mind reader.”

Whether it’s freezing cold or burning up outside, you’ve gotta love the convenience of having your car comfortable and ready for you — before the second that you leave for work.

That’s right, the SmartSchedule feature could be the difference between continually having your car start every morning while you are still enjoying your first cup of coffee, and making a trip outside in your slippers to get your vehicle running.

Like a personal assistant, SmartSchedule will alert you when it is a certain temperature outside and it’s nearing your time to hit the road — giving you the option to start your vehicle via your smartphone.

Users can just import all of their personal scheduling information and data into the app — and your car will now sense when the temperature hits the level at which you know you want to remote start your car.

In the app, users can find the SmartSchedule feature under “More” on the menu tab at the bottom of the main screen.

Click on “SmartSchedule” and users will be prompted to enter a time that they normally leave for work and on what days — along with a set temperature that marks the level where the user would want to remote start their vehicle.
