From lending your car to a friend to on-demand car rental and peer-to-peer car sharing for corporate fleets, KēZ is pioneering smart phone-centric technology to power the revolution in smoke detection.
The KēZ adaptor and app provides a smoke detector and log which can detect smoking within the vehicle and will create a silent history record, and if required a sound alert if smoke is detected. The history log is created to record the time, date and level of smoking within the vehicle which can be downloaded from the KēZ app.

Vehicle Access Sharing
