Why do I need Viper SmartStart?
Viper SmartStart is a clever solution that combines the functionality of your vehicle’s key fob with your cell phone. Now you can control your vehicle’s locks, security system, remote start system, and trunk release with your cell phone. Anyone who’s used a remote car starter before knows that range is critically important to maximizing the value of your remote starter – and range doesn’t get any better than with a Viper SmartStart. If your phone has sufficient signal and your vehicle also has sufficient signal your all set.
Why do I need to remote start my car?
Your vehicle can be pretty uncomfortable in extreme weather. In fact, getting into a frozen or overheated car can be downright painful. With a remote car starter, you can start your car from the comfort of your home to make sure it is the right temperature before you get inside. The DS4+ SmartStart remote start system provides virtually unlimited range so you can rest assured your remote start system is activated no matter how far away you are from your vehicle.

What if my current device stops working?
There should be no interruption of existing service with the introduction of this new hardware. If you experience any change in service or functionality, contact our experienced customer service team who will help you resolve any issues with your Viper SmartStart system.
Why do I need to pay for a service plan?
Your Viper SmartStart is an “always-on” connected device that communicates over a cellular network. Just like a cell phone, your SmartStart requires a service plan from a cellular provider to communicate over the network.
Does the service plan give me unlimited use?
Your annual service plan was designed to cover all the activity that a customer would use under any reasonable circumstances. Like all other "unlimited” services such as cell phone data plans, we do have a limit on the number of uses per month that we can enforce on a case by case basis in the event that a device is malfunctioning or a subscriber is clearly abusing the service (e.g. commercial purposes). In the unlikely event that you approach the usage limits of your service plan, you’ll receive a notice with an option to opt up to a higher usage plan for an additional fee.
How do I activate my Viper SmartStart account?
