Abstract: 

Smart Sense Innovations is now developing the next generation of alarm systems. This new product informs the car owner, through a mobile page, of the state of various systems in the car. The device known as MAPSS, is a micro-controller and mobile telephone based apparatus. Sensors are attached to the car security system, the car ignition system, and the car headlights. Upon activation, the module senses if the car alarm has been activated, or if the headlights have been left on, or if the car is turned on. The device then pages the car owner accordingly, informing the owner of the specific event.
