Prevent Accidental Drowning with a Pool Alarm Security System
One out of every five drowning victims is a child below the age of 14, according to the CDC. As a matter of fact, roughly 900 children from ages 1 to 14 die every year, and in most cases there was a parent or lifeguard nearby. This is why a pool alarm security system is a must for any home with a swimming pool.
Many cases of accidental drowning occur during parties or other social events. Parents and adults might be busy socializing, and their children could be frolicking about. It takes only a few seconds for a child to slip out of attention and accidentally drown before anyone even notices.
Utilizing a pool alarm child safety device ensures you will instantly know, even when you aren’t looking, if your toddler or even your dog accidentally falls into the swimming pool.
There are many different pool alarms to prevent drowning, like a pool immersion alarm or submersible pool alarms, but these present a few problems.
Pool immersion alarms require a child or pet to constantly wear a bracelet. The alarm will go off when the bracelet hits the water. All the child needs to do is remove the bracelet and they can go hit the waters without ever setting the security system off.
Submersibles rely on pressure. Unfortunately, some children are too lightweight for the alarm to even detect them.
The best pool security systems are those that gauge surface waves. The Pool Protector is one. All you need to do is set the alarm at the edge of the pool with a small portion of it dipped in the water. Once it turns on, it stays on. It detects even the slightest change in the water’s surface via motion sensor.
You can’t even cheat by removing the alarm off the pool. Without setting this kind of device on “sleep” mode, it will not allow you to remove it from its spot. It will still sound the alarm until you properly set it on sleep mode, preventing kids from cheating their way for an unsupervised swim.
These pool security systems are made of two devices: you get the main device, which is seated by the water, and then there is the wireless receiver, the piece that sounds off when someone is in the swimming pool. If it is a false alarm, you can turn it off or reset its settings with remote control.
The best receivers can still receive the signal even when 200 to 300 feet away. This ensures that even when you’re at the other end of your home, you will still hear it blaring off whenever your child falls in the pool or tries to sneak in for an unsupervised swim.
It does not matter if you own an above-ground pool, outdoor pool, or regular in-ground pool because these pool security systems will work so long as you dip the device within the pool perimeter. For house pool safety, don’t just rely on an adult watching over your kids – get a pool safety device now.
The Pool Alarm comes with a remote receiver with flashing light which can be mounted in your home up to 300 feet from the main unit. It comes with a 12 volt power supply. The Pool Alarm uses 6 D batteries (not included) which should last approximately one year. There is an audible low battery indicator which will sound at the poolside alarm and the remote receiver.
