Directed Demonstrates Smartphone-as-a-Key Technology


Directed during CES 2019 this week in Las Vegas demonstrated technology that enables practically any vehicle to be controlled with a Smartphone instead of a key. The concept builds on Directed’s work within remote start and connected car space, according to the company. 

“We’re excited to demonstrate our Directed Smartphone-as-a-Key (SaaK) technology at CES,” said Geoff Weathersby, vice president of Connected Car at Directed. “We’ve been driving evolution in the connected car space for 10 years.

“SaaK technology will enable more efficient vehicle use by families, ride-sharing companies and anyone needing to operate a car without a key.” 

Directed demonstrated its SaaK technology to 12-Volt dealers at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas during CES 2019.
