'the BackSeat’ is an automatic alerting system App designed to remind parents and caretakers of small children not to forget a little one behind in a hot car to be injured or worse. The App only needs to be set up one time upon download with all necessary information. (User info, Auto info, Children info, “Alert team” members and Settings) Automatically after each car ride, ‘the BackSeat’ App will automatically alert the user reminding them to make sure all passengers are safe and accounted for. If for some reason the user is so distracted that the increasingly louder alerting process to the users smart phone fails, ‘the BackSeat’ will automatically summons help from 3 pre-determined friends or family members (set up by user upon registration) via email and text message, alerting them to the possibility of a little one left behind. ‘The BackSeat’ will even inform the users “Alert Team” members as to the GPS location of where the users car stopped along with a description of the primary vehicle the user drives. (as indicated by user upon registration) ‘the BackSeat’ settings are also customizable to suit the needs of each caretakers schedules where they are most likely to have small children, as well as able to be used by daycare facilities that transport small children.
