Car Seat Monitors Child Passengers To Keep Them From Harm
Cybex's Sirona M with SensorSafe syncs with a vehicle receiver and the parent's smartphone to send alerts for potential safety hazards
Car seat and stroller company Cybex has added a smart chest clip to its Sirona M car seat that monitors the child’s well-being. When synced with the installed vehicle receiver and caregiver’s smartphone, the Sirona M with SensorSafe 2.0 sends alerts if the child unbuckles themselves while the vehicle is moving, if the temperature in the rear of the car becomes too cold or too warm, or if the child has been seated for too long. These are all provided through a user-friendly app, along with guidance on installation, how-to videos and FAQs.
The Sirona M also features an adjustable Linear Side-Impact Protection System, which can reduce side impact forces by up to 25%, and a 12-position height adjustable headrest with integrated no-rethread harness for protection that grows with the child.
