From its small beginnings rooted in a now-obsolete product, Voxx International is manufacturing products at every end of the electronics spectrum, giving itself nowhere to go but up.

Mobile Electronics, June Issue, Behind The Scenes, 6/16/2016 -- Does anyone remember pocket transistor radios? Probably not, yet this tiny gadget served as the foundation for one of the most formidable consumer electronics companies in the industry today—Voxx International.

Back in 1960, John Shalam sold pocket transistor radios for an import company, but when a deal went south that left him saddled with 2,000 car stereos, he unexpectedly had a new game plan and a new company. By 1965 Audiovox was in business and Shalam was selling aftermarket car radios to car dealers. The timing couldn’t have been better since back then approximately 35 percent of the vehicles delivered to a new car dealer came without a car radio. From there, he moved the product to mom-and-pops and then to mass merchants.

Today, that gumption is still very much part of the company’s ethos where Shalam remains as chairman of the board. Renamed Voxx International in December 2011, it is now headed by CEO Pat Lavelle who has been in that role since 2005.

“Starting with John and all the people who have been important in shaping the company along the way, it has always been entrepreneurial and still is,” Lavelle said. “John set the company up that way and we have carried on that entrepreneurial spirit even through all of our acquisitions. Really, the essence has not changed much from when I started with the company back in 1977.”

Through its natural evolution and strategic acquisitions, Voxx has boomed from its car stereo roots to a major consumer electronics company that manufactures and supplies product to big box retailers, specialty and mass merchants, as well as to automotive OEMs including Volkswagen, Audi, BMW, DAF Daimler, Peugeot, Ford Motor Company, Chrysler, General Motors Corporation, Toyota, Kia, Mazda, Subaru, Nissan, Porsche and Bentley.

Pacing With Product

Throughout the company’s evolution, Voxx has both embraced and extricated itself from certain product categories while trying to maintain momentum in the tech industry. The company’s ability to chart a successful course while many of its competitors have struggled or simply gone away has made it a strong partner for 12-volt and specialty retailers who have also gained the opportunity to invest in new product categories and technologies.

In the early 1980s, Audiovox was one of the first companies in the country to introduce remote car start. Today, remote start remains a core segment for aftermarket automotive retailers.

Then the car phone emerged as the next big thing. “Everybody wanted to have a phone in their car,” Lavelle said. “We developed our car phone business which then expanded into handsets. We became a big supplier of cellular in the U.S., and for a number of years we had number one market share in CDMA phones.”

By 2004, the cell phone business declined and Audiovox exited cellular leaving just the electronics. “We obviously had our roots in the automotive side and wanted to continue with it,” Lavelle said. Today, the automotive business—aftermarket and OEM—accounts for 50 percent of Voxx’s total volume. “We are very active in the aftermarket and continue to look at disruptive technologies that are going to be introduced in the aftermarket eventually moving into the OEM space.”

VOXX Electronics Corporation announced the future of remote starts with the introduction of CarLinkBT, a Bluetooth module and smartphone app that is compatible with most popular remote start systems.

When paired with its corresponding smartphone app, CarLinkBT transforms a smartphone into a virtual transmitter, instantly giving remote access to the vehicle and a direct connection to OE-style safety and convenience services delivering a complete safety, convenience and security solution.

“Remote start as we know it today has remained virtually unchanged for over 20 years, providing users with a simple and convenient way to preheat or cool their vehicle with the use of a transmitter.  But what if your transmitter was locked in your car, lost, damaged or had a dead battery leaving you with no way into your vehicle?  With the introduction of CarLinkBT we have reinvented what remote start systems can now do,” said Tom Malone, President of VOXX Electronics Corporation.  “For a one-time fee of $7.99, users can download the CarLinkBT app turning their smartphone into a virtual transmitter to unlock/lock and start their vehicle, eliminating the worry of ever being without a transmitter again.”

Once the CarLinkBT module is installed with a compatible remote start and/or factory keyless entry and the app is downloaded, the CarLinkBT Bluetooth Basic Service delivers access to the vehicle without the use of a transmitter.  With CarLinkBT, never worry about being without access to your vehicle again. CarLinkBT provides peace of mind by having a virtual transmitter within the smartphone at all times. 

For a one-time fee, the CarLinkBT app provides users with Remote Access/Start capabilities within Bluetooth range on up to 10 smartphones. Users will also have access to the CarLink Insurance Discount Program to potentially save hundreds of dollars on their car insurance.

In-vehicle safety services are some of the most desirable features in today’s newest vehicles. However, there are millions of cars on the road today that are not equipped with these OE-style features as standard equipment. The CarLinkBT Cellular Premium Service is an upgraded service plan that provides users with many of today’s most desired safety and convenience features at one low price. The additional services are included within the CarLinkBT Cellular Premium Service3 easily accessible directly from your CarLinkBT smartphone app:

-        E-Call Service – provides 24/7 access to make a one-touch call a dedicated Emergency Response call center in the event of an emergency.

-        Roadside Assistance – provides users with a dedicated Emergency Call Center running 24/7 to assist you if you break-down, run out of gas, get a flat tire…just about anything.

-        Stolen Vehicle Assistance – Helps to locate your vehicle, and share its location with the local authorities to assist in vehicle recovery.

-        Driver Safety includes our unique driver distraction Text Blocking App to reduce texting and driving while vehicle is in motion, the ability to set (up to five) Geo-Fences sending alerts when a vehicle enters or exits pre-determined zones, and Speed Alerts sending a notification if the vehicle should exceed a predetermined speed threshold.

-        Location Services – includes On-Demand Vehicle Location to notify  you of real-time vehicle location, as well as access to Trip Maps to view the path vehicle has traveled when enabled.

-        Driver Scoring – provides reports to help improve driving habits and assist in driver coaching.

HAUPPAUGE, NEW YORK – August 2, 2017 -–VOXX Electronics Corporation will be releasing two new telematics products–CarlinkBT Long Range and Carlink Cellular ASCL6 at the MERA KnowledgeFest in Dallas, Texas on August 11, 2017.

“As we continue to set the standard in the vehicle telematics category and expand the product offering, we are excited to be releasing two new products that are sure to change the way dealers and consumers look at the telematics category. Last year we released CarLinkBT to give consumers the opportunity to “test out” telematics without having to invest in a product with monthly or annual fees. The only limitation was a limited operating range of 100 feet. With our new offering we have greatly improved on that this year with the introduction of CarLinkBT Long Range with over 1 mile of operating range”, said Aron Demers, Senior Vice President, VOXX Electronics Corporation.

CarLinkBT Long Range adds another VOXX first to market. This entirely new product allows long range smartphone control without any monthly or annual fees. CarLinkBT Long Range offers today’s most advanced convenience and security solution when combined with a Prestige, Code Alarm or Pursuit remote start, security or keyless entry system. The system communicates from a smartphone to a small one-button transmitter on your keychain via Bluetooth, and then to the vehicle using long range LoRa RF technology, extending its operating range to over one mile without any additional fees. CarLinkBT Long Range also offers VOXX dealers a unique store branding option with the ability to market directly to their customers with the CarLink App. CarLinkBT Long Range will start shipping in September 2017, with an MSRP of $149.95.

VOXX has also applied for a new patent for a transmitter concept to eliminate the need to carry additional devices on your keychain. It’s extremely thin design, much like a credit card with a rechargeable battery was developed to “stick-on” the back of any smartphone device, placed inside of a briefcase/purse or even put on keychain to provide two-way functionality to the CarLinkBT smartphone app to lock/unlock and start your vehicle with over one mile of operating range, without any buttons or screens and no monthly or annual fees.

Demers continued. “But we didn’t stop there. We know one of the biggest challenges with the telematics category for consumers that want unlimited operating range are the monthly or annual fees, and the complexity of different services. So, we created CarLink ASCL6, one 3G system, with one service plan that includes vehicle control and vehicle location services, with one year of unlimited service included in the price and a very low $29.99 annual renewal fee after the first year.” CarLink ASCL6 will start shipping this month with an MSRP of $299.99.

“We are very excited for the future of telematics, and VOXX will continue to lead the way with new and innovative products,” concluded Demers.

HAUPPAUGE, NEW YORK – August 9, 2017 -–VOXX Electronics Corporation (VEC), announced that the company will begin shipping the new Flashlogic FLRSBA later this year and will show and conduct a product introduction at the MERA KnowledgeFest in Dallas, Texas on August 11, 2017.

“We are very excited to announce the scheduled release of our first fully integrated remote start / security system with a built in FLCAN – the FLRSBA. The FLRSBA was developed in conjunction with Automotive Data Solutions (ADS) and brings together the advanced technology of ADS with the core VOXX security and remote start features,” said Aron Demers, Senior Vice President, VOXX Electronics Corporation.

Frank Barassi, President of Automotive Data Solutions Inc. (ADS), also stated, “VOXX and ADS have been great partners for ten years. This valued relationship empowers us to together launch innovative remote start solutions. The FLRSBA is the culmination of years of effort and will launch with 102 different firmware, cover 7600+ vehicles, and designed to support many more advanced solutions coming soon. We are proud of the result and hope mobile electronic retailers and distributors embrace this product; and that we together continue to collaborate to ensure our industry sustains itself for the many years to come.”

The FLRSBA incorporates many of the patented VOXX features such as Real Panic Sound horn honk and Custom Code override.

The FLRSBA is t-harness compatible for low current remote start applications.  VOXX will also be releasing over 20 t-harness kits for thousands of vehicle applications – including Toyota and Mazda. The support side of the “BA” is as impressive as the product.  We will have a uniquely custom vehicle by vehicle – wire by wire – installation guide for each vehicle application.

Demers continued.  “We are expanding the Vehicle Security / Remote Start & Data Start offering with the FLRSBA, not replace anything in the Prestige, Code Alarm, Pursuit or current Flashlogic Data Start line-up.  The FLRSBA can also replace our current “vehicle specific” data start systems, giving our dealers the option of a “one module” solution with different vehicle specific harnesses – increasing flexibility and reducing carrying costs.  However, we will still carry the majority of our complete kit module and harness applications – giving you a choice.  We want to give our dealers what they are asking for, and continue to lead the industry in bringing new innovative products to market”.

Dealer and MSRP pricing will be released September 1, 2017.
