New device would warn parents if a child is left in the hot car

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (KSAZ) -  It happens every summer, as the temperatures rise into triple digits someone will leave a child in a car where temperatures can climb to fatal levels in just minutes.

There is something that may help forgetful parents and save lives. A Phoenix man is developing a device that could help save children.

It's a hot car alarm; it honks the car's horn because a baby, in this case a doll, was left in the back seat of a vehicle. The Aviso Child in Car Alert can be connected and powered by a vehicle.

"Now here you see the unit, we've actually pulled it out here so you can see it, but normally a lot of people just like to tuck it under the passenger seat, it hides out of the way, and here is the cable... you stick these two things together, one leads to a sensor underneath the upholstery and another cable goes into the black box and you're done. These connections are done, and you never have to change them again," said Scott McDonald.

As soon as you turn off the car the system will beep reminding you that the baby is in the back seat. That alert sounds for ten seconds as a gentle reminder, if you don't remove the child from the seat within 9 minutes the car alarm and horn will go off.

And it won't stop until the baby is taken out of the car. You may be thinking of who would need this, who forgets their child? Phoenix Firefighters see tragedies from this seemingly impossible mistake every summer.

"We like the reminder idea, we want you to use anything that's gonna make you successful in making sure that you get your child out of that car," said Capt. Jonathan Jacobs.

The device will be hitting the market within a month; it will cost between $200 to $300. If you would like more information visit: www.avisoreminder.com
