Why Smart Start is the Best Ignition Interlock with Cold Weather

Holding Smart Start Ignition Interlock Device in Vehicle

Do you need an Ignition Interlock and you live in extremely cold climates like the Arctic Circle? How about a place where the average summer’s day is 50 degrees Fahrenheit and during winter, temperatures can drop below -30 degrees? If this is your case, you don’t need to be worried about your area’s cold climate with a Smart Start Ignition Interlock.

Whether you’re in Canada, Alaska, or anywhere with freezing temperatures that include ice and snow, your Smart Start Ignition Interlock will continue to perform above the rest. Our manufacturing process involves making an Ignition Interlock that can continue to stay reliable, even in extreme weather. We also follow federal and state standards by testing the devices in environmental chambers to ensure your Ignition Interlock continues to perform normally, no matter what climate you’re driving in.

Smart Start’s Ignition Interlocks require the least hassle from any other provider. There are even a couple of tips you can follow with your Ignition Interlock during the colder weather.

Ignition Interlock Tips in Cold Weather

  • If you do live in an area with cold weather, you may know that your car battery can die fast. Smart Start Ignition Interlocks can help you stay pro-active in the care of your vehicle by allowing you to see how much voltage your car battery has. All you need to do is press “#” and “2” on your device’s keypad at the same time. With this capability, you won’t have to worry about a dead battery!
  • Many U.S. states allow clients to disconnect the head unit from the curly cord and take the device inside. Just remember that your Smart Start Ignition Interlock will perform fine regardless! If you do disconnect your head unit, your vehicle needs to be off. You should also check with your Interlock oversight authority like your probation officer or the DMV office that you can disconnect your head unit.

Keep in mind that Smart Start may not operate in your country, although we are the only worldwide provider in 19 countries!
