Change the way you think about automobile safety with The First Years True Fit IAlert— a revolutionary mobile-synched car seat designed to recognize potentially unsafe conditions and alert parents on their smartphone. Seamlessly built into The First Years True Fit Convertible Car Seat, the IAlert system monitors children in the seat with an easy-to-use mobile application that:
  • Assists in achieving the correct angle position when installing the seat in rear-facing position
  • Reminds you to check the car seat buckle
  • Alerts you if your child is out of their car seat while you are driving
  • Alerts you if your child is left unattended in their car seat
  • Constantly monitors the ambient temperature in the car
  • Allows you to set up emergency contacts

    Quick and Easy Setup
    The monitoring system works with most smartphones (IOS and Android) in the market today. After a quick download, you can personalize the IAlert app with your children's photos, set up emergency contacts and register your seat for safety alerts.

    Before you begin using your new car seat, please be sure to thoroughly read the provided installation instructions in combination with your automobile owner’s manual.

    Safety Alerts to Your Phone, Instantly
    We all get distracted now and then, so once you have installed IAlert and your child is comfortably seated in the car, you’ll receive a message to remind you to buckle them in. This alert will appear each time you seat your child.

    IAlert constantly monitors the ambient temperature in the back seat. Temperatures in the back seat are not as well-controlled as the front seat due to dashboard positioning, so your child may not be nearly as comfortable as you are. The temperature inside a car can rise 20 degrees in just 20 minutes, which means a caregiver’s quick trip inside the grocery store, bank or gas station could quickly lead to a potentially unsafe situation.

    If a child is unintentionally left unattended in the car, an alert will be sent to your phone. If the situation continues, additional alerts will be sent via email and/or text to the contacts you’ve selected during setup and registration of the IAlert software. These alerts will let others know that a child may have unintentionally been left in their car seat.

    A Monitoring System that Grows With Your Child
    As children grow and begin to explore more, IAlert keeps them safe by sending you movement notifications. If for some reason a child is able to move out of their seat while the vehicle is in motion, an alert will sound on your mobile device. This will be your notification to pull over and re-secure the child in their car seat. And because your safety is equally important, IAlert’s notifications have both audible and visible options, so you won’t be distracted while driving.

    Designed for Outstanding Safety and Comfort
    The True Fit’s head rest is deeply contoured and fully lined with EPP foam, so your child is protected in the unlikely event of a crash, and comfortable for everyday use. Its deep seat means your child fits in the seat as they grow, keeping them secure and comfortable longer. For added convenience, a removable, washable cup holder will hold your child’s sippy cup on the go.

    The True Fit is side impact tested to the international side impact standards.

    About the True Fit IAlert:
    The True Fit IAlert features an integrated monitoring system that connects and communicates with most smart phones. Once you purchase the True Fit IAlert, download the application, register and set up your seat and you are ready to go. IAlert helps you obtain the desired rear -acing angle installation, constantly monitors the ambient temperature in the back of your car and alerts you if your child unbuckles while you are driving. The IAlert also notifies you if your child is left in the car unattended.

    The True Fit I Alert has all of the easy-to-use features of the True Fit SI. The SI stands for Side Impact featuring the our unique head rest. The contoured design aides in containing your child’s head in the event of a crash. Keeping your child rear facing longer is easy--the SI can be used rear-facing up to 35 lbs. Clean-up is a breeze with our easy-off pads. And the hassle-free no re-thread harness adjusts simply by moving the side adjusters to help with the correct positioning.

    The C685 model features smaller bottom rails and the patented Rebound Energy Management ™ system--a flip-up rebound bar that actually helps manage the rebound in the unlikely event of a crash. Pull the bar forward and it snaps in place with your rear-facing installation, and flip it back when you move to the rear-facing and forward-facing installation. This seat is fully-lined with EPP foam and has deep side wings that really surround your child.The larger interior dimensions keep your child comfortable as they grow.

    We have added a center angle indicator in the front of our seat for use when installing in the rear-facing position. This easy-to-read indicator will help you determine if you have installed your seat correctly. For your infant, it will assist in achieving the advocate-recommended 45 degree angle for installation (without our headrest) and as you keep it rear-facing to 35lbs (with the headrest) you can check for the recommended 35 degree installation angle.

    We have LATCH attachments mounted on the sides so they are easy to access when you are installing your seat, and easy to secure when you remove the seat from your vehicle. Installation is stress-free with our color-coded lock-offs, whether you are installing for the first time rear-facing or forward-facing, they are both easily accessible and easy to use.
