Protect your car in a smart way

Vivint’s smartphone app allows you to control your Car Guard and all home security devices from one convenient location. By integrating with your smart home, it brings you amazing features like vehicle tracking, towing and stealing alerts, and diagnostic updates for your car. The Vivint Car Guard is easy to install, plugging right into your vehicle’s existing OBD-II port, a small on-board computer that monitors important information about your car.

Control everything from a single app

By using the Vivint app, you can manage both home and car. Vivint Car Guard and your other security devices report all data directly to the app, allowing you to check in easily on your car and home any time you want. With both systems working together, you can set your home system to recognize when your car comes and goes. This way, your home security system can initiate scenes set up through the app to either arm or disarm the system and do things such as turn on the lights or lock the front door.

It may not be able to prevent that fender bender, but it can alert you to any disturbances of your vehicle and give you a chance to run out there and stop it from being towed or broken into.
