Smart Start® saves lives by Separating Drinking From Driving®

Smart Start ignition interlock products are breath alcohol analyzers that keep drivers with DWIs/DUIs from operating vehicles if their breath alcohol level is over a pre-set level.  Our small electronic handheld devices are a cost-effective alternative to jail or license suspension, and allow offenders to keep driving.  Smart Start is the only company in the industry offering fully integrated services – manufacturing, installation, service and comprehensive monitoring and reporting.

Smart Start offers:

  • Easy-to-use ignition interlock devices, many convenient features
  • 24/7 service – you can talk to a real person
