Cybex starts selling its $330, app-enabled car seat made for safety geeks
From TechCrunch - February 12, 2018

Normally, I wouldnt be writing about a car seat for for TechCrunch but as Ive been in the market for such an item lately (and have been hit up for all things baby tech as my due date nears) the high-tech Cybex Sirona M with SensorSafe 2.0 stood out.

Cybex is manufactured in Germany and is a mostly European brand thats gaining momentum in the U.S. market. Its newest carseat in the family (the aforementioned Sirona M) is made to give parents and caregivers peace of mind using technology.

Some of the techy features include Bluetooth monitoring and an app to alert parents when a caregiver may have left the kid in the car, the kid has unbuckled their seatbelt while the car is moving or if their baby is in danger of overheating.

Parents will get an alert in the form of a chime though an installed vehicle receiver if something is wrong while drivinglike your child unbuckles their clip. Should the parent not be with the child, they will be sent an alert via the app. So, for example, if someone watching their kid forgets the kid in the car for even a few minutes, the designated emergency contact (usually the primary caregiver) will be alerted on the app and given GPS coordinates to locate the vehicle.

The car seat also monitors vehicle temperature so it can tell parents if their child is in danger of overheating and possibly dying due to a hot car.
