Curb Alert PRO™ Parking Sensor by Brandmotion: Never Hit Another Curb Again

With a Curb Alert PRO™ parking sensor, you'll no longer have to worry about damaging your vehicle's front bumper when pulling up to or leaving a curb, or approaching the end of a steep driveway. Using Infrared LED technology, the Curb Alert PRO™ curb sensor will reliably detect when you are getting too close to a curb and warn you with a short series of audible beeps, preventing expensive damage to your vehicle.

A completely new kind of parking aid, exclusive to Brandmotion
Curb Alert PRO™ is a patent-pending curb detection device that uses the latest in Infrared LED technology to determine the distance of your vehicle from a curb or other low obstacle. It sends out infrared waves that are analyzed by the system to determine how far your vehicle is from the curb. If it determines that your vehicle is dangerously close to the curb, it alerts you with an audible in-cabin tone to prevent damage to your front bumper, spoiler or valence panel.   Housed within a weatherproof case to handle any weather conditions thrown at it.  Curb Alert PRO™ is an invaluable and easily installed addition to any vehicle with a low front end, from a sports coupe to a hybrid.

No more embarrassing expensive parking lot “accidents”
It's happened to all of us. You pull up too close to a curb and you hear that ominous “SCRAAAAPE”. Sometimes, you'll remember to pull away slowly when you return and avoid further damage. But if you drive a sports car, or sports sedan, or any vehicle with a low front end (even a Prius, for example), you can “hook” your lower fascia and experience one of the worst automotive emotions possible – backing up and having the curb rip your lower valence panel or even your entire fascia from the car!   It happens every day, to innocent drivers, which is exactly the core frustration for the Corvette owner and Curb Alert PRO™ inventor who approached us and asked us to help him commercialize his new invention. We thought it was clever, and useful.   When we showed it to friends and family and the reaction was overwhelming – Why hasn't someone thought of this before!?   

Then, we checked the vehicle online forums to see if people were talking about this problem. The response confirmed what our friends and family told us - this is a real problem and car owners are looking for a solution.  See some of our findings for yourself (we were especially surprised to learn that the Prius – given its gentle image – has a pretty nasty curb damage problem!)

  1. Curb alert and smart alternators Review by Richard

    Quality

    Hi, Curb alert works a treat and works very well. only one problem with newer cars is the smart alternator and the voltage not always reaching the turn on voltage for the curb alert. so sometime it is not on when you need it most.
    don't know if the threshold voltage can be adjusted or overridden. (Posted on 6/24/14)

  2. Finally a way to protect your "front" bumper Review by JME

    I own a pristine 2001 Audi A8L. I've been constantly concerned about pulling too close any curb as this car is a little too low. Now, at 15" I'm warned to stop and boy do I love it.

    Whether or not you install your own depends upon the car. I had to have mine professionally installed.

    I'll be buying another for my other car with a low front bumper. (Posted on 5/9/14)

  3. curb alert works as advertized Review by jay

    I recently ordered the curb alert for a 2009 bmw z4 roadster. The unit was installed yesterday calibrated and put to the test this am at the recreation center curbs. Worked as advertized. Install did not present a problem just the decisions as to the run of the cables. I;m 75 and not to good at bending but the unit is a snap to install and calibrate. I will need some time using this unit before I can give it a 10. (Posted on 11/8/11)
