Become a parking perfectionist with a solar-powered sensor

Solar is the future, after all.

For some, parking is a major source of stress. When you bring your new car fresh out of the dealer, you’re still getting used to it and might not yet know how to park it safely. Unfortunately, even the freshest of cars don’t come equipped with a parking sensor. Don’t worry, though. We’ve got you covered.

The Light Smart Solar Powered Parking Sensor is a sensor you can install onto your car for an upgrade. It’s only $89, a reduction from its usual $129 cost. The coolest part about this sensor is that it’s powered by the sun. Your car may not be doing the planet much good, but at least you can rest easy knowing your sensor isn’t doing any additional harm.

This sensor connects to your phone via an app so that it can send you audio and visual alerts on your parking situation. Depending on where you need it, the mount can go in the front or the back of the vehicle. You could even go ahead and buy two sensors: one for the front and one for the back. It is on sale, after all, right? You don’t have to worry about water damage, either; the sensor is waterproof. In fact, it’s weatherproof! It kind of has to be if it’s going to sit on the exterior of your vehicle.

The Light Smart Solar Powered Parking Sensor connects to your phone through Bluetooth. As for charging, you don’t have to worry about dismounting it and plugging it. It’s powered through solar, remember? So as long as you don’t live anywhere that spends a chunk of time without light—looking at you, Alaska—the sensor should work just fine.

Protect your car by making a small investment. The $89 sensor is a deal you don’t want to miss.
