Whether you’re shopping for an infant car seat or looking to go with an all-in-one model, you’ve probably come across a few options with SensorSafe Technology. Designed to work alongside a smartphone via the SensorSafe app, this feature is helping save lives and educate family members on what to look out for in car seat safety.
It’s All in The Name
SensorSafe Technology is a monitoring system that continually evaluates your child’s environment while buckled into the back seat. Models like the CYBEX Sirona M convertible car seat send notification chimes directly to your phone alerting caregivers if the chest clip is unbuckled while the vehicle is moving, if the back seat is too hot or cold, if your child has been seated for too long, and most importantly, if your child has been left behind in the car. (This is especially important in preventing hot car deaths.) What’s more, if action is not taken within a specified amount of time, the SensorSafe clip will send the last known coordinates of the vehicle to the specified emergency contact, so someone knows a child may be in danger.
X Marks the (SensorSafe) Spot
On the CYBEX car seats, the green sensor button is built right into the 5-point harness system chest clip. (You can’t miss it!)
Set up is extremely easy, too. It comes with a car port that syncs the seat to your vehicle, and the app will communicate between the car port and your phone. The app will also help you install the port, asking for your car brand, model and year. It will then provide instructions for accessing the plug-in location and immediately starts monitoring in real-time once complete.
Additional Bells and Whistles
As if the previously listed features weren’t enough to convince you, we want to mention a few other key elements that set these CYBEX car seats apart.
- A Linear Side-impact Protection System (the barriers extending from the sides of the seat) help absorb 25 percent more impact in the event of a side collision. These can be pushed in or out to accommodate placement in different vehicles.
- Magnetic belt holders can be found on either side of the safety harness, preventing twisting, tangling and the loss of your sanity. (Can we get three cheers for this?)
- A 12-position, easy-to-adjust headrest with an integrated no-rethread harness for growing babes and a 10-position one-hand adjustable recline to ensure the best fit for your car. And because this model can accommodate up to 65 pounds (forward-facing, 45 pounds for rear-facing), it’s an investment that will last!
All parents want to do everything in their power to protect their children. SensorSafe Technology goes the distance to bring peace of mind and make sure your tiny passengers arrive home healthy and happy.
