InterMotive Vehicle Controls has developed a Bluetooth version of its fully automatic stop/start idle reduction system called the EcoStar II.

EcoStar III automatically turns the engine off and on after the vehicle has been placed in Park for a programmable set amount of time. Using Bluetooth and a simple mobile app, EcoStar III is configurable to custom conditions and can pull data for tracking idle time reduction and fuel savings.

The EcoStar III works with the key in or out of the ignition to keep the vehicle secure as well as prevent unnecessary idling.

The system will monitor battery voltage and interior temperature (optional feature) to restart the engine if any of the specific condition settings are exceeded. It also includes high idle for a faster battery charge and better AC performance.

EcoStar III can be installed using plug and play connections on a work truck, fire truck, cutaway-bus, and ambulance vehicles.
