The summer heat will be here before you know it. For many new sleep-deprived moms and dads that can bring an added danger. It is hard to escape a summer without hearing about at least one story where a child was left in a hot car, sometimes until it is too late. 
It is these stories that inspired a New Mexico teen to come up with a  life-saving idea. What's even better, Alissa Chavez took her idea and created a new a hot car seat alarm system to help parents avoid a tragedy.

The 17-year-old from Albuquerque, created the "Hot Seat" alarm system with a sensor that goes under the car seat and is linked to a parent's key chain through a mobile app. 

The device uses a weight sensor so it can sense the weight of the child in the car seat and then it will trigger an alarm on parent’s smartphone. 

When a parent walks too far away from the car and the child is still in the seat, an alarm will go off.

 Chavez says she hopes her product makes a difference.

She adds that it is intended to be completely user-friendly so parents don’t have to worry about turning the app on. 

The teen has been honored for her invention. She received a patent for "Hot Seat" and is raising money to fund production of the system.
