Cybex Sirona M with Sensorsafe 2.0- Lavastone Black
Introducing advanced child safety protection and caregiver peace of mind in an easy-to-use, convertible car seat-the Sirona M with SensorSafe 2.0. The newest addition to the CYBEX Gold Car Seat family, the Sirona M with SensorSafe 2.0 integrates important safety technology into the chest clip of the car seat to alert when unsafe situations arise.
The Sirona M with SensorSafe 2.0 monitors the well-being of the seated child through the smart chest clip that is synced with the installed vehicle receiver and the caregiver's smartphone. The Sirona M with SensorSafe 2.0 offers an adjustable Linear Side-Impact Protection (L.S.P.) System, which can reduce side impact forces by up to 25% when used properly, and a 12-position height adjustable headrest with integrated no-rethread harness for protection that grows with your child.
The Sirona M with SensorSafe 2.0 provides the essential alert through both the vehicle receiver and the caregiver's cellphone when the driver accidentally leaves the child behind in the car, but also alerts the driver if a child unbuckles themselves while the vehicle is in motion; if the back seat has become too warm or too cold; and if a child has been seated for too long -all through a user-friendly app, that also provides guidance on installation, how-to videos, FAQ's and more.
Whether rearward or forward-facing, the CYBEX Sirona M with SensorSafe 2.0 features an adjustable Linear Side-impact Protection system (L.S.P.), increasing the level of safety in case of a side-impact collision. The L.S.P. system can be individually adjusted on the door facing side of the car seat and can absorb up to 25% more impact forces in a side-impact collision in combination with the head and shoulder protectors.
With the 12-position height-adjustable headrest with integrated harness guide, the length of the harness changes automatically when the headrest is adjusted. This prevents any need for the difficult threading in and out of the harness and makes it almost impossible to misuse.
SensorSafe 2.0 will chime through the installed vehicle receiver to alert when a child is still secured in the back seat after the car has been switched off. This reminds the caregiver to take action quickly, but if the child is still secured after several minutes an alert will be sent to the caregiver's cellphone through the downloaded app. If the situation is still not remedied, the designated emergency contact will receive an alert with the GPS coordinates of the vehicle's last known position. This state-of-the-art safety technology is designed so there is no need to reinstall each time you drive. For ease, just keep the receiver plugged into your car's OBD port to drive with that extra peace of mind. The innovative user-friendly app, also provides guidance on installation, how-to videos, FAQ's and more to help prevent misuse.
The Newborn Inlay provides a near-flat angle in the seat of the Sirona M with SensorSafe 2.0, helping to prevent baby's head tipping forward while it sleeps, which can lead to serious breathing problems. Along with German doctors and midwives, and taking into account the findings of many tests, this function was developed to enable a safe lying angle between head, neck and chest, thus significantly reducing the risk of suffocation. This seat insert is removable after the child reaches 11 lbs., to provide more space and comfort for growing children.
Because 59% of accidents are head-on collisions, CYBEX recommends transporting children in a rear-facing position for as long as possible, preferably up to 4 years old or 4 lbs. In a head-on collision a rear-facing seat distributes the strong front-impact forces across the seat's back, significantly reducing the strain on the child's neck and head.
Depending on your preference, the Sirona M with SensorSafe 2.0 can also be used in a forward-facing position for children who are at least 2 years old or 22 lbs.
We've had really good experiences with Cybex products, and the Sirona is no exception. We had looked at the UK version before it was available in the US, and while there's some differences between the two - the US version works great, feels incredibly safe, and my son sits and naps comfortably in this car seat.
The seat is not incredibly heavy like others we tested, and is very easy to install. The seat also adjusts to different stages between upright sitting to almost laying flat.
The Sensorsafe is also easy to sync and set up on my iphone.
