Since 1995, the company has been a household name in the field of safety and security.

A recent report by the Consumer Association of India (Jan 2018), has highlighted that India being the 6th largest car market with 2.03 million passenger cars sold in the country, road accidents in India are highest in the world. Also, about 30 per cent of the deaths are caused due to lack of safety features in Indian cars. Having shared this, ZICOM has identified the importance of an expert security and safety system for vehicles. Towards this, the company has leveraged the power of IoT and specially designed Street Smart to cater to the emerging needs of a discerning road traveler. Through the innovation of Street Smart Solutions, ZICOM is ensuring that the owner of the vehicle is in control of his personal vehicle in case of a theft, speed or breakdown.

Street Smart possesses unique features to ensure the safety of its user mentioned below:

This center which is one of the best of its kind, is well-equipped to provide a user real-time assistance anytime, anywhere.
