The world is certainly not lacking devices that allow you to track and control your vehicle from afar. The newest breed of these systems was developed by Inilex, which allows a subscriber/user to do everything from unlock their doors, start their vehicle, sound the alarm, disable the engine or give the location of their ride. The system can be used by logging on to Inilex's website via a PC, calling a toll-free number or using a PDA with access to the internet.

Aside from providing a bit more convenience and protection, the major draw for some users, namely parents, is the ability to not only track the movements of the vehicle, but also be alerted via text message or email if the kiddies stray from set boundaries or operate the vehicle during certain times of the day or night (no more ditching school or sneaking into the love interest's window at 3 AM).

Straightline has several links that provide more information and Inilex has a demo posted on their site.

      Two factor authentication must be implemented for both: users and admins and you can protect entire server or particular page where all start/stop/lock controls are... it's easy to do... so, even when somebody breaks in to the server - won't be able to access this page without PIN+token code...

      That acutaly kinda cool. But I can see hackers have to hack it to get Sh-ts and giggles. And I would kinda too. LOL!
      But Very cool none the less.

      I have seen this implemented and working already but from another company over 6 months ago. Connect2car.com seems to have a solution like this already that does more that just this and it looks cool. So i am not sure who came with it first.

      This solution better has a two factor authentication
      like RSA or Entrust tokens, otherwise this idea will fail due to a weak security implementation.
      So long hackers and giggles indeed.

      A remote engine disable function; what fun. Let me see how big a pile-up I can cause on the freeway just by turning the engine off while the car is travelling at 70 mph......
