How to Keep Your Family Safe in the Summer Heat with VESTA

When the sun is shining, you car can quickly become an oven. Many dogs die every year from being locked inside overheating vehicles, and children can also suffer. The VESTA Smart Heat Alarm alerts you to dangerous temperatures and unauthorized access to your vehicle. It could just save your family.

– Alarm attaches to your car and sends text alerts to your phone

– Device can detect high temperatures/CO2 levels

– Sensors detect when someone enters your vehicle

Safe summer heat

The problem with cars is that they have a lot of windows — almost like a greenhouse on wheels. Just like a greenhouse, the interior collects every drop of sunshine. As a result, temperatures can soar inside, even on days with a fresh breeze.

On average, 37 children die in cars every year in the USA due to overheating — a tragic statistic. Pets are even more susceptible, as they are less able to cool themselves than humans.

Of course, you have to step away from your vehicle at times. This is where VESTA can save the day. The alarm constantly checks the temperature inside your vehicle, sending an alert to your smartphone if things get too hot.

Likewise, the CO2 sensors check that there is enough good air for pets and babies to breath. This can be a real problem with a panting dog in the car. You can set up 10 phone numbers in total, so there is always someone to save the day.

The really clever thing about this alarm is that it knows when someone is locked in your car. Sensors pick up movement inside the vehicle, so the device knows when to alert you. This doubles as an anti-theft sensor, and VESTA has GPS to pinpoint the location of your ride at all times. The alarm is powered by a rechargeable battery and solar panels, so it should never go offline.

“Because VESTA is a wireless device, its functionality is independent of any particular make or model of car” — VESTA on IndieGoGo
