"Backseat Minder" lets parents know when a child is in the back seat of a car.

A device that can save a life

But you can toss in your coat or bag in that time. That kind of activity does not activate the system. Similarly, if the car is not started within several minutes after the rear door is opened, the chime will not sound. The BackSeat Minder even has a temporary override function that pauses the system for three hours when a person is driving alone.

It is every parent's worst nightmare: forgetting about a child strapped into their car seat in the back of a car. Unfortunately, an alarming number of children are forgotten in cars and tragedy often follows. It is the goal of one company to avert any such tragedy with the invention of the "Backseat Minder" system designed to be permanently installed in a car to make the car more secure.

"In today's busy world, it is hard to stay focused on even simple responsibilities," explains Chaim Orbach, president of CSO Radio, and inventor of the Backseat Minder. "Even the most conscientious parents are prone to getting distracted and the Backseat Minder is designed to anticipate real life situations."

Orbach was "always into car electronics" and when tragic incidents occurred, several people suggested he do something to prevent another tragedy. Orbach was "driven to make something" and began the process of making a prototype. A second and third prototype proved to be successful and Orbach began to produce the Backseat Minder. It is a revolutionary device that once installed within the vehicle, begins to work automatically.

The BackSeat Minder senses when your car rear door is open for three seconds or more. Once the driver starts the car, the system is activated and when the ignition is shut down, a distinct chime sounds. The chime can only be turned off by pressing a button located on the inside of the car rear doors.

"It is just about impossible to seat a child in a car seat in less than three seconds," Orbach explains. "But you can toss in your coat or bag in that time. That kind of activity does not activate the system. Similarly, if the car is not started within several minutes after the rear door is opened, the chime will not sound. The BackSeat Minder even has a temporary override function that pauses the system for three hours when a person is driving alone."
