For installation of a Viper SmartStart system, locate a local Viper installer via the Where to Buy link on Viper.com. This system requires professional installation. The SmartStart system is also compatible with other Viper systems.
The Viper SmartStart system is available in two Viper models: the SmartStart Remote Start Security system and SmartStart Remote Start system. The SmartStart Remote Start Security system allows owners to lock and unlock their cars at the push of a button and comes with extra security settings. The SmartStart Remote Start system only allows for the locking and unlocking of the car. Both systems are also controllable through a smartphone application.
The SmartStart system is always on, and a subscription service is required. Viper offers four subscription options as of 2016: two that are one year long and two that are three years long. The Secure subscription is for both one or three years, and it covers the locking and unlocking, remote start, SmartSchedule and membership to the Viper Motor Club. The GPS premium subscription plan is available in both one- and three-year options, and it includes locking and unlocking, remote start, car location, speed and membership into the Viper Motor Club. Also, this includes SmartSchedule, speed and lockdown alerts, and SmartFence.
