About this project
Accidently leaving a child in the car happens too often to loving families each year. Since records were taken in 1998 over 700 young children have unnecessarily died by being forgotten in cars. Fortunately, this is a tragedy that we can help prevent.
eClip is the first low-cost device that helps prevent parents and caregivers from accidentally leaving a young child in the back seat of the car. Using low energy Bluetooth and advanced patent pending technology, eClip is able to detect when you walk more than 15 feet (5 meters) from your car by alerting you through an interactive app on your Smartphone. The eClip also monitors the temperature in the back of your car so it’s safe and comfortable for your baby.
Consider this scenario…
Most of us have a set daily schedule. Like a long commute to work, meeting friends for a coffee or a regular work out in the gym. These habits stick in our brain and after time become second nature.
No one would intentionally forget their child but imagine a person driving to work, not thinking about the stop they need to make and forgetting that their sleeping baby is in the backseat of the car, possibly suffering from heat stroke.
Just think about it; how many times have we reached our destination not remembering how we got there since our brains are programmed on routine journeys and activities. When something alters this pattern it is so easy to forget the change in routine and that’s when tragedies can occur.
This phenomena when you forget your baby is in the car even has its own term; Forgotten Baby Syndrome (FBS), hopefully never heard of by most parents. Unfortunately, the numbers show this can happen to any parent with children of any age, not just newborns, and it is important to be sure to take any and all preventative measures to keep them safe.
Setting up eClip for daily use is extremely easy and only takes a few seconds.
Simply attach eClip to a car seat, regular seat belt or diaper bag. You can attach it to even more places with the accessory strap that is included in the box, ensuring the eClip stays securely attached until you take it off. The on/off switch is designed so a child cannot accidentally turn it off and there are no small parts that pose a choking hazard.
- The temperature can vary tremendously between the front and the back rows of a car. Although you can control the temperature around the front seats, it can be hard to tell what the actual temperature is in the rest of the car especially where you baby is located. The eClip is also equipped with advanced temperature monitoring that alerts you if the temperature is too hot or too cold to be safe and comfortable for your child.
The eClip app will alert you if the temperature falls below or above the recommended range of 59-86°f (15-30°C). You can also adjust the apps temperature alert settings.

Few species on earth are more dedicated to and protective of their families than elephants. Each elephant herd is led by a Matriarch, her children and grandchildren. Elephants travel by walking in single file, ensuring that older animals protect their young.
Just like elephants, Elepho provides protective products that deliver wellbeing for the entire family. While some products may be primarily aimed at children, or grandma and grandpa, they can all be used by family members of any age.
We can’t thank you enough for checking out our project and helping us make eClip a reality.
