Separating drinking from driving

Smart Start is the nation’s premier provider of ignition interlock services and technology. Every day, our ignition interlock device prevents intoxicated drivers from endangering themselves, their families and their fellow citizens by separating drinking from driving. Smart Start is the smart choice for both monitored drivers and court/public safety authorities.

What is an ignition interlock device?

An ignition interlock device is an in-car alcohol breath screening device that prevents a vehicle from starting if it detects a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) over a pre-set limit. The device is located inside the vehicle, near the driver’s seat, and is connected to the engine's ignition system.


Smart Start’s ignition interlock system effectively separates drinking from driving. It combines advanced technology, accurate monitoring and responsive, flexible reporting. At the heart of Smart Start’s solution is the SSI-1000® – a state-of-the-art handheld breath-alcohol monitoring device electronically connected to the vehicle ignition. Alcohol-specific and similar in size to a cellphone, the SSI-1000 was developed using fuel-cell sensor technology for reliability and ease of operation. Smart Start pairs this proven device with proprietary Smartrac® and SmartLog® software. This makes it easy for drivers to use, and allows the interlock program and reporting to be customized to a particular jurisdiction.

The SSI-1000, developed exclusively by Smart Start, reflects state-of-the-art interlock technology. Multiple design features make the device difficult to defeat. The built-in microchip records all test results, engine starts and stops, disconnections and tampering for later review.
