New car seat developed to prevent hot car deaths

With all the deaths reported of children left unsupervised in hot cars, it’s about time someone came up with a creative solution. No one is perfect, and sometimes parents are scatterbrained. That doesn’t excuse them forgetting a child in a hot car however.

News 2 reports,

WalMart and Evenflo have announced an exclusive one-year deal to sell a new car seat that is designed to prevent hot car deaths.

According to Evenflo, a new model of their car seats will incorporate “SensorSafe Technology,” which communicates through a chip in the seat’s chest harness and a receiver attached to the vehicle. If the car’s ignition is shut off with the chest clip still fastened, an alarm will sound.

Evenflo says the SensorSafe system does not require Bluetooth or any other wireless device, but currently only is capable in properly equipped vehicles manufactured since 2008.

If you live in a hot part of the country, and you’re thinking about what to get your friend for her baby shower or her toddler’s birthday, consider this car seat. It could save a life. The car seat will retail for $149.
