Angel is a product that seems sort of odd to make but you realize quickly that some people may actually need this. As a father of five kids, I can most certainly say that I’ve never left any of them in the car by mistake. I can’t imagine forgetting one of my kids and leaving them in a hot car, but the fact is that it does happen. You only need to search through YouTube to find story after story to see the impact of forgetting a child in a hot car.
Angel was created to help parents avoid the tragedy that could be if a child is forgotten in a vehicle. The device works via Bluetooth connectivity and an app on your smartphone. It seems pretty straight forward in it gives you an alert should you walk away with the child still in their seat.
- Instant Activation – Once the soft sensor is in place, your Angel phone app will detect the device and you’re all set to use it.
- Intelligent Sensing – Angel’s sensors detect your child’s weight to determine whether the car seat is empty or full.
- Customized Alerts – If you move too far from your child’s car seat, Angel will send an alert to your phone (as well as any other smartphones you choose). Spouses, grandparents, and babysitters can all have accounts with customized alerts.
- Two-Year Battery Power – The FCC-approved, energy-efficient signal keeps the Angel device powered for 2 years or more (and is easily replaced when the power runs out).
While this device is probably not going to solve the problem of some parents intentionally leaving their kids in cars, for those who just may forget, it could prove useful. I’d even venture to say that it would be a great precautionary device to have even if you’re not forgetful. There’s nothing more precious than our kids, and you can never have too much protection around them. The Angel device sells for $49.99USD.
