As we have previously reported, one child dies every nine days from being left in a hot car. I hear folks say quite often, how could a child be left in a car? Unfortunately, as we know all too well, it does happen. Now a car seat that could prevent children from being accidentally left in cars is being made available. The car seat, the Evenflo Embrace DLX Infant Car Seat with SensorSafe technology, will be sold at Wal-Mart and online at Evenflo.com.
The seat has a sensor that sounds an alarm once the car ignition is turned off, to remind parents there is a baby still in the seat. The alarm is activated through a “smart” chest clip and a wireless receiver. It also alerts the driver if the chest clip is unbuckled during transit. The wireless receiver plugs into the data port that mechanics use to check a car’s system, and links via Wi-Fi to the sensor inside the chest clip. The sensor is enabled when the car starts moving. Once the car stops and is turned off, a set of tones will sound.
According to Evenflo, the SensorSafe system will work even when multiple SensorSafe-equipped car seats are in one car, thanks to each chest clip having a unique ID. The SensorSafe seats can also be used in multiple cars. The car seat fits babies from 4-35 pounds and up to 30″ in height. The seat is currently available at Walmart.com and will soon be available in Wal-Mart stores and on Evenflo.com. It retails for $149.88. Hopefully, these seats will work and, if so, lives will be saved.
