Infant Reminder -- No more forgotten children in vehicles!
Perhaps the haste, perhaps the thoughts that afflict every adult, have distracted thousands of parents around the world causing terrible tragedies and the death of the children forgotten in vehicles. Made in Messina (Italy), Infant Reminder is the first app in the world, for smartphones and tablets, able to ward off the danger of forgetting the children in vehicles.
How does Infant Reminder work?
Before starting the route, the user launches the application and enter a destination address, either manually or withdrawing it from the favorite destinations, previously saved.
As soon as you start the route with vehicle, the user will be alerted automatically and periodically with audible (voice or ringtone) and visual alarms (pop up windows and camera led flashing) during the route and in proximity to arrival.
But not only this! Ten minutes after arriving at destination, when dad, mom or schoolbus driver are engaged in their work, an "anti addictive" alarm starts, a sign of probable forgetfulness and deconcentration.
The application allows, also, to send SMS or email messages, respectively, to a phone number or an email address, previously stored. To do this, just reached the percentage of planned route, the windows will automatically appear, accompanied by audible and visual alarms. The messages will offer the user the choice of:
1. postpone the reminder after 5 minutes
2. send a text message or an email
3. close the windows.
An additional alarm, not configurable, will popup when the vehicle is arrived at destination.
The configuration settings, activable only after stopping navigation, optionally allow of:
1. Enable or disable the initial warning
2. Enable or disable the audible and / or visual alarm
3. Set up to three percent of the route to the attainment of which the driver receives the alarms
4. Store a phone number to which send an SMS
5. Save an email address that will receive an e-mail message
6. Select the ringtone for the alarm sound.
