Features & Benefits

Battery Protection

Battery Protect™ allows fleets to monitor batteries and run the engine for a desired amount of time when voltages get low. Fleet managers and drivers can simply use Idle Smart’s Android tablet or remote management capabilities to program a voltage threshold and run time. Fleets have the flexibility to set parameters based on battery type, condition and hauling operations. The key does not have to be in the ignition to enable Battery Protect and access is password protected at all times.

  • Battery voltage range: 11.2v to 12.7v
  • Recharge run time range: 10 to 120 minutes

Cold Start Guard

With Cold Start Guard™, fleets have the ability to have their trucks start at a specific coolant temperature and run until the desired engine coolant temperature is reached. Drivers or fleet managers simply use Idle Smart’s Android tablet or remote management capabilities to program a starting temperature, ideal coolant temperature, and restart interval.

  • Engine Coolant range: 50° to 180°
  • Engine runs until desired coolant temperature is reached
  • Engine restart intervals: 1 to 24 hours

Cabin Comfort

With Idle Smart, fleets or drivers simply select their desired cabin temperature and Idle Smart takes care of the rest. Idle Smart automatically starts the engine when the cabin temperature is outside the comfort range and will run until the target cabin temperature is reached. At this point, Idle Smart begins the process of safely and efficiently shutting down the engine. Like most settings in Idle Smart, the comfort range can be customized for personal or fleet preferences.  And Idle Smart’s Silent Start™ capabilities ensures that drivers have a comfortable and uninterrupted night of sleep.

  • Drivers can adjust temperature within a range (if enabled)
  • Easily configurable in conjunction with a bunk heater

Remote Management

Fleet managers can easily manage and change device or fleet-level parameters from their desktop. Whether accounting for individual driver preferences or making seasonal adjustments for the entire fleet, it can all be done from anywhere and at any time with Idle Smart.
