I purchased this system after hearing a number of news reports of small children being accidentally left in the car. Despite my initial skepticism about the need for such a system, I finally decided to go with the "better safe than sorry" approach and spent the money for the system.
Unfortunately, the system is a piece of junk. I should start by saying that the system does alarm when you walk away from your car with the clips buckled; I tested this on a number of occasions to assure myself it would work if I really did leave the kids. However, there are far too many false alarms. There clearly is some type of electrical interference pattern that causes the system to alarm while just driving down the road. It seems to me that it is related to radio communications as the problem appears particularly common while driving near semi trucks or through construction zones. The system also frequently alarms even after I have disengaged the clips, not to mention the occasional times when the key fob just randomly starts beeping in my pocket for no discernible reason whatsoever.
The clips are also just a bit flimsy. One of the strap attachment loops broke off when my 2-year old decided to throw a fit about getting in the car seat. This never happened with the clips that came with the car seat...
BabyAlert would have done well to ensure that the number of false alarms were minimized prior to putting this system on the market. In that case, this would be a truly great product. Instead, we have now removed the system from our car seats and will once again have to rely on our own devices to make sure we don't leave the kids in the car. The annoyance of the constant alarms just was not worth the peace of mind, and the money spent of the system was a total waste!!!!

What a shame. A great idea, but simply too many false alarms.

The device does work. If you move away more than 15 feet for more than 8 seconds, it beeps pretty loudly and persistently. Even better, when you close the transmitter (the buckle), it will beep until you click the button on the receiver, to make sure you don't forget to activate it. I was specifically worried about forgetting to activate the receiver, so it was a HUGE relief to discover that feature.

Then comes the unfortunate part. As a number of other reviewers have said, it gives false alarms. A LOT of them. I mean frequently, it just beeps constantly. And I mean... CONSTANTLY. I don't mind a brief beep here and there. Even a series of beeps every so often. I thought I would be able to deal with the false alarms, because it's worth it, right? I mean, I can deal with the seat belt chime going for an hour, so I'm not that picky. But this is intolerable. The worst part is, then it starts to distract you from driving. When you stop the car to get out, you're so incensed at the darn thing, you might even walk away from the car furiously pressing the button to shut it up, possibly making you forget everything else, including the very reason you bought the freaking thing! (The baby in the car...) Really, it's quite possible, because when it beeps, even unbuckling the transmitter won't shut it up of course. Your brain will quickly become conditioned that the beeping doesn't actually mean anything, it's not a reminder anymore, just an annoyance, and a further distraction.

I just don't get it, I really don't. Make it a little less sensitive! Design it so you can walk 100 feet from the car before it beeps! Make it wait 30 seconds before it beeps!

Great product, however I have noticed that when my husband is carrying the baby in the carseat (me with the keys), he is able to get way farther than 15 feet (more like 20 yards) before it goes off. Maybe because we're outside, and the monitor is designed to cut signal after 15 ft. when blocked by being inside? Moral of the story- if you want to test its range, before you attach the fob to your keys, have someone sit it the car with the baby (car on, of course) while you hold the fob and walk away.

I ordered this item in spite of the poor reviews hoping I would be the exception since there are not very many items on the market like this. I activated the unit following the instructions. (poorly written instructions) and it "activated" like it said it would, red light blinking on the buckle but with in exactly 100 seconds the unit on the seat began beeping and lighting up green meaning it needed to sync to a key unit. Pressing the sync button on the key unit made it stop and act "activated" again for exactly 100 seconds again. It never stayed synced beyond that. I uninstalled and reinstalled the batteries, I re "synchronized" , nothing worked. I called the 1800 # listed on the instructions -ridiculous- it is just a voicemail recording stating they have "high call volume". Tried their website, no troubleshooting, nothing. Also the unit is very cheaply made. :( returning, will order again to hopefully get a working unit, but I definitely do not trust this company or its products. I plan to use a back up alarm when using this if the new unit even works until a better option comes along.************Actually i wont be reordering after looking into the reviews more. There is only 1 five star review from an actual verified purchase, the rest are all unverified and from around the same time as well. Every verified purchase complains of the same defects. I would never use this companies products, so wrong to make defective baby safety equipment and allow parents to have a false sense of security knowing your product doesn't work!
