VISTA, CA (05.14.2020) – Directed has announced that the US Patent and
Trademark Office has awarded the company an additional patent covering its distinctive DS4 and DS4+ technology.
US Patent No. 10,589,715, titled “Vehicle Control System with Wirelessly-Coupled Underhood Components” covers DS4’s unique in-car communications capability. With its onboard Bluetooth radio, DS4 can pair wirelessly to multiple under hood peripheral devices such as a siren, hood pin, tach monitor, sensor and others. This wireless pairing vastly speeds and simplifies installation, as install technicians no longer need to pull wires through vehicle firewalls.
“This latest patent adds to the impressive intellectual property portfolio Directed has built over the last thirty years and begins a new chapter in this digital era,” said James Turner, SVP & General Manager of Remote Start and Security. “It protects our unique DS4 technology and covers one of the biggest advantages of this breakthrough technology – wireless pairing. Innovation is in our DNA at Directed, and we are excited that the USPTO has again recognized our industry leading technology.”
