People with smartphones can get an app for just about everything these days. From ordering food to playing multiplayer games, there is something for everyone to enjoy. And now, through the Mi Alerts app, you can get up-to-the-second notifications of when your car is in an accident or even stolen.
Mi Alerts uses a system of sensors and cameras to monitor your car. Those sensors are linked to your smartphone and an online website where you can receive notifications for several different situations. When you car has been hit or dinged by a door, the sensory monitor sends an alert to your phone that includes the level of damage.
The app and system comes with a camera that is placed in the grille or below the front license plate and three other cameras that can be placed on other places of the car like the back windshield and each car door. When an accident occurs, each camera takes a photo and short video clip to capture the perpetrator.
In addition, the app is linked to a GPS which allows you to find the car if it’s been stolen, towed or you’ve lost it in a parking lot. It also tracks driving habits of the users, and the developers of the app are working with car insurance companies to promote discounts for good driving habits.
