Sensorsafe is a technology found in Evenflo car seats. This technology uses a receiver that is inserted into your car’s diagnostics port, a socket located inside a vehicle that accesses various vehicle subsystems where small receivers can be installed to tap into a car's computer system. That receiver communicates with the car seat's smart chest clip – alerting you through a series of chimes whether your child is still in the seat after the car is turned off.
Rear Seat Reminder System
Newer vehicles, like those made from General Motors, have back door sensors that are activated when either the rear door is opened or closed within 10 minutes of the vehicle being started, or while the vehicle is running. Under these circumstances, when you reach your destination a reminder appears on the dashboard as well as an audible chime notification that says “Rear Seat Reminder, Look in Rear Seat".
Driver’s Little Helper Sensor System
This is a sensor system that can be put in a car seat. The sensor goes under the car seat padding where your child sits. The sensor is then attached to a battery pack and synced with an app. You can set when you want the app to send you notifications after you stop the car. You can set the interval for when you receive the notification, the fastest being a minute.
