About

Founded in Nashville, TN, splitsecnd is creating a simple-but-revolutionary device that makes crash response, 24/7 emergency roadside assistance and GPS tracking possible in any vehicle manufactured after 1926. With us, help on the road is only a splitsecnd away.

2nd Generation of splitsecnd Safety:

Over the last 12 months, the splitsecnd team has been hard at work developing our 2nd Generation device that will help keep our roads safer and families more connected, and we’re excited to publicly introduce our new technology via the Kickstarter Community.

The 2nd Generation splitsecnd Device is the only portable and effective plug & play vehicle connectivity device on the market. Designed to simply plug into the 12V lighter outlet in any vehicle, it can detect a crash, connect you to a live operator, send help to your location, and notify your emergency contact in an instant.

splitsecnd uses airbag sensor technology to activate the emergency response system on impact, calling for help even if you can’t respond; it can also be activated manually in the event of a 9-1-1 emergency or roadside breakdown.

And with comprehensive trip analytics and GPS capabilities, splitsecnd lets you track routes, encourage good driving habits and even find your parked car. Keep up with you and your family on the road no matter where you are, what you drive, or what the situation.

No Installation Required & Portable Between Vehicles

The splitsecnd device simply plugs into the 12V outlet (cigarette lighter) in any vehicle in one step, no matter the make, model or year, and it begins working automatically.

 If you're traveling for work or riding with a friend, easily transfer it from vehicle-to-vehicle.

Automatic Crash Response & Notification:

Using the same type of sensor that triggers vehicle airbags, splitsecnd feels the impact of a crash and connects you to trained responders at our 24/7 Emergency Response Center who speak to you through the device's built-in cell phone. If you happen to lose power in the event of a crash, the device will still function, as it has a built-in 4 hour backup battery.

After emergency help is secured, our Response Center will notify your emergency contact to let them know what has happened and where you are.

24/7 Roadside & Medical Assistance:

splitsecnd’s built-in help button gives you instant two-way communication in a medical emergency, roadside breakdown and Good Samaritan call situations. Our emergency response center will alert 9-1-1 or towing services in your area and stay in contact with you until the situation is resolved.

Vehicle Tracking & User Dashboard:

With built-in GPS & GLONASS, splitsecnd's iOS and Android mobile application allows drivers to track the location of their vehicles in one easy-to-use portal.

Drivers are also able to customize their account by uploading vehicle & medical information (medical history, medications, etc.), which will be given to emergency responders if you are involved in a crash or broken down. This ensures that drivers of all ages are given the most efficient and effective medical attention at the scene of a crash.

Note: A cell phone is not required for the splitsecnd device to function, as the device has a built-in cell phone. The mobile application has been developed to enhance your driving experience and help you keep up with loved ones.

Certifications & Crash Testing:

The splitsecnd team is working closely with medical and vehicle safety professionals to ensure that your device works without fault. We've already completed our first crash test with CIREN and the Medical College of Wisconsin to test the device and encourage vehicle manufacturer's to develop a safer vehicle (see full article).

During the crash test, the splitsecnd devices detected a crash over 3Gs with a change in velocity greater than 8 km/h. Within 0.46 seconds of impact, GPS data connection was established with the local Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) and live help directly connected with the driver in 7 seconds.

To further ensure the safety of splitsecnd users, we're currently in the process of receiving multiple certifications that will thoroughly inspect the device's hardware and firmware. These certifications will be received in the coming months before Kickstarter rewards are fulfilled.

When we say any vehicle, we mean it. The splitsecnd device works in any vehicle with a 12V outlet, which has been installed in vehicles since 1926.

OnStar, For Any Car:

Some compare us to OnStar, but for any car. Our simple, affordable and portable crash response, emergency assistance and vehicle tracking system will work in any vehicle, no matter the make, model or year.

Monthly Service:

The first year of service is included in all rewards with a splitsecnd device. Once the first year of service has finished, the monthly service will be offered at a discounted rate of $9.95 (traditionally $15.95) to all Kickstarter supporters as a way of saying thank you!

Risks and challenges

Having successfully developed, manufactured and tested our 1st Generation devices, our experienced technology team understands what it takes to develop a product that keeps you and your loved ones connected whilst on the road.

While we understand the complexities associated with bringing a hardware product to market, there are still unforeseen hardships, which could potentially result in in delayed delivery. However, we are committed to working with our partners to ensure a timely delivery and transparent communication throughout the entire process from Kickstarter to your car.
