Code 3®, Inc. Introduces vLink® Remote Vehicle Connectivity Via Smartphone Access
St. Louis, Mo. – Code 3, Inc., a St. Louis-based company that develops and manufactures lighting and siren products for police, fire, EMS and other vehicles, recently announced a new “game changing” technology in the category: vLink®. With this innovative wireless remote control technology, law enforcement officers can remotely control their vehicles’ lights, sirens, air horn, locks and trunk, and more when away from their vehicles, directly from their Smartphone from up to 300 feet away.
“In the world of law enforcement, situations can change in an instant,” said Dale Tompkins, President & CEO of Code 3. “vLink empowers officers to be ‘two places at once’ by providing them with critical, remote access to their vehicles’ alert and safety features with just the touch of a Smartphone button – all for an investment that is less than the cost of three tanks of gas.”
This powerful remote, Smartphone-accessible technology provides officers with added control when stepping outside their vehicle to conduct a field sobriety test (FST), performing traffic stops, investigating suspicious activity, or providing assistance to motorists or injured persons. While away from the car, vLink allows officers to remotely conduct operations, such as: activate the lightbar to call attention to motorists, trigger the air horn to alert on-coming EMS vehicles to the scene, energize the ArrowStick for traffic control, start or stop an in-car video (ICV), open the vehicles’ trunk to provide access to other officers, open a K-9 door, and lock or unlock the vehicle.
vLink comes with a quick-start guide that assists officers with seamless device installation, downloading the secure, supporting application, and acts as a point of instruction – ultimately putting the officer more in control.
