CHANDLER, Ariz. — Inilex, a provider of aftermarket telemetry solutions for vehicles, rolled out an early theft detection (ETD) service called SkyLINK.
Designed to be sold in the F&I office, the system works by instantly alerting car owners via their mobile device when their parked car has moved without their knowledge, enabling them to immediately notify police and begin the recovery process.
With SkyLINK ETD, motorists can use their smartphones to set an invisible “fence,” or QuickFence, around their vehicle. If their car moves outside of the QuickFence, they are automatically alerted through a text or e-mail, and can take quick action to lessen the impact of the theft.
“With criminals getting more sophisticated, anti-theft systems are usually not enough to deter them from stealing a vehicle, and most aren’t just after luxury cars,” said Michael Maledon, CEO of Inilex.
“SkyLINK ETD provides the next level of defense by dramatically increasing the odds for quick vehicle recovery. Even better, activating the service is as simple as clicking on a link from a mobile device.”
The ETD service works in conjunction with SkyLINK, a dealer-installed device that uses GPS, satellite and wireless technologies to locate and recover stolen vehicles in real time. As soon as a vehicle is reported stolen, SkyLINK operators can track it and provide its exact location to police.
In addition to the theft-recovery application, SkyLINK ETD can be a useful tool for a variety of other purposes. For instance, parents can also monitor the driving habits of their teenagers in real time. Businesses with small fleets, such as florists or pizza delivery trucks, can monitor their vehicles overnight or during extended stops. SkyLINK ETD is now available through auto dealerships across the country as an enhanced option at the time of SkyLINK purchase. For more information, visit www.inilex.com.
