We are very excited to announce the first hardware extension to the CarLock car security solution — the CarLock Tag. The Carlock tag is a small Bluetooth device that connects directly to the CarLock app on your phone and automates the unlocking and locking of your car’s location. By default, your car’s location can be automatically unlocked when the CarLock Tag is within range of your phone and automatically locked when it is out of range.
Currently, the CarLock Tag is supported only on devices running iOS platform (iPhone). We did some extensive testing on Android devices and unfortunately, the Android operating systems on most Android phones proved to be very unreliable when detecting the CarLock Tag. We are working on the solution for this issue, but currently, the CarLock Tag is not supported on the Android platform.
The CarLock Tag
The CarLock Tag is designed to make the process of using CarLock’s security functions easier by automating the process of enabling or disabling vehicle monitoring. From now on, you will no longer need to reach in your pocket, unlock the phone, and open the CarLock app to disable vehicle monitoring before starting the car. The CarLock Tag will do it for you, avoiding the false alarm.
Simply pair the CarLock Tag with the CarLock app on your phone and place the CarLock Tag inside the car. How to pair the CarLock Tag with your Phone?
Once the CarLock Tag is paired with your phone, you are able to define which action you want the Tag to perform — lock, unlock, or none — when in phone’s range and when out of your phone’s range. You can get the CarLock Tag for every car you use CarLock with or even multiple tags for each car if you choose to.
After everything is set up and the CarLock tag is in the car, you will receive a push notification with a distinctive sound, every time you move away or come close to the car.
With the CarLock Tag, we are completing and publishing the release of our SmarLock functionalities. When you open the Dashboard, you will find the new SmartLock tab — the third tab — where Scheduler used to be. Don’t worry, Scheduler is still there but it is now part of the new and improved SmartLock functionalities.
With new and improved SmartLock functionalities you can either choose to use Scheduler and Timer Lock or the new CarLock Tag — a revolutionary way to automate the process of enabling and disabling vehicle monitoring without your input, making sure your car is safe when parked.
