eFob: Bluetooth Key for Your Car


You don’t need to have your keys around to start your car. Not when you can use a Phone-as-a-Key fob to get the job done. In fact, VOXXHirschmann has launched eFob, which allows consumers to access and share their car through their smartphone.

This efob solution connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth. Vehicles equipped with smart sensors can be controlled as users approach them. You can share your vehicle with friends and family members electronically. Time and geo-based restrictions and usage limits can also be set up.

More than just a replacement for a physical key, thanks to our patented technology your smartphone, the efob platform will enable OEM’s to offer a wide array of new in-car functionality including wireless sharing and linking of devices, further complementing their current vehicle automation programs without increasing system costs and complexity.
