Automatic is only available in the U.S right now. We're working hard to support other countries!
Automatic Contacts Help in a Crash, Even If You Can’t
Crash Alertbeta can detect many types of serious crashes using the Link’s built-in accelerometer. Agents from Automatic report it to local authorities and get you help when you may not be able.
Only 2% of drivers subscribe to crash assistance services.
They say the best camera is the one you have with you. We feel this is even more true when it comes to crash detection. Existing crash assistance services cost hundreds of dollars a year in subscription fees and most people don’t have them.
Over 22,000 people die in car accidents in the US every year.
Automatic is the first product to offer crash detection that uses your smartphone’s internet connection. Our goal was to create a safety net for the millions of drivers without an expensive crash assistance subscription service.
How It Works
The Link detects a severe crash with its built-in accelerometer and plays a loud tone and recorded message to let you know what’s happening.
A 30-second countdown lets you cancel the alert if needed. Otherwise the app uploads crash details to the Automatic emergency call center.
An agent calls your phone number to confirm you need assistance, then requests help from local authorities*. They can stay on the line with you until help arrives.
An agent can also call your loved ones to let them know help is on the way. They’ll leave a message if no one answers.
We want you to know Crash Alert's limitations, so we're not going to hide them in fine print.
Crash Alert is US-only and can't work if any of the following occur at the time of the crash:
The Link or smartphone is disconnected or damaged
The Link and smartphone are not connected via Bluetooth
No GPS signal at the time of the crash
Insufficient cellular signal to upload crash details
