New technology detects when children and pets are left in hot cars and notifies guardians
Ashdod, Israel — Israeli tech startup EVE
announced it will be releasing Athena
, a new safety monitor and app that detects when babies, children and pets are forgotten in parked cars and notifies guardians. The technology will be available in the United States in 2019, priced between $150-$199, and is available for pre-order now at www.eve-v.com
A buy-off-the-shelf technology, Athena includes one piece of hardware that is easily installed to the indoor roof of a car and connects to an app that provides real-time alerts to guardians should anyone be left behind. Athena’s patented multi-sensor technology uses an advanced in-cabin sensing system designed specifically for detecting babies or pets accidentally left behind in cars and ensures accuracy and fast detection. The notification system alerts pre-identified guardians in a timed sequence. If the first person to be notified doesn’t respond within 60 seconds (users can change this to less time), the next person on the list will receive a phone, text or email alert. Athena works with any model car, from any year and the app integrates with both iOS and Android.
The Athena car safety monitor will be available in white, black and stainless steel.
