Married couple from Australia invents life-saving automotive tech

Hello Jeff,

We're working with a husband and wife team from Australia whose story I 
thought you'd really enjoy hearing about. 
In 2014, on Christmas day, Taleese and Shane Penna almost lost their child. 
Their nearly 3 year old son gained access and locked himself in their hot 
car. Thankfully they found him in time, but not every family is this 
Research indicates that as many as 50 children die of hyperthermia each 
year in Australia and the U.S. alone. These stats didn’t sit well with the 
couple, so they decided to invent the dTec SafeKam.

Packed with technology, the dTec SafeKam is the ultimate dash cam designed 
to prevent injury or death by hot vehicle entrapment. Its plug-and-play 
design detects and monitors motion inside your car when the ignition is 
turned off. The dTec SafeKam sends real-time alerts and images to your 
smartphone the second it senses movement. Emergency messaging can be set up 
with 3 programmed numbers including a picture of the interior of your 
vehicle, a GPS co-ordinate and temperature information. 
The dTec SafeKam doubles as a WiFi hot-spot, includes a manual ‘panic’ mode 
and deploys a fatigue alert and shock detection to keep occupants safer 
before and after accidents.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me or Taleese Penna, 
Founder & CEO dTec SafeKam, at or at +61427027794.
