While working as a patrol Sergeant in a California city, nothing spiked my sense of dread more than a radio call of a child found unconscious in a swimming pool. I responded to a number of these calls, some with devastating results. One was at a daycare facility and the child was a coworker’s.
In California, drowning is the number one cause of accidental death for children 1-4 years of age. A pool alarm can help prevent this from happening to your child or grandchild?
The Safety Technology POOL ALARM is an electronic monitoring system that automatically sounds an alarm at the pool and at a receiver inside your home when children or pets fall into your unsupervised pool. It’s portable, self-contained and light weight.
The unit is simple to operate. Entry into the pool will be detected by the Pool Alarm’s electronic sensor, triggering a loud pulsating alarm at the unit and inside your house from the remote receiver. The Pool Alarm installation and control is very easy. It sits on the pool deck as shown in the picture. There is control button operation and the unit will automatically arm once you are done swimming.
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 main unit 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. The in water tube is adjustable.
More than 900 children between 1 and 14 die each year in drowning accidents. Help protect your pool from one of these terrible accidents with a pool alarm.
Includes Pool Alarm, Ac 110 to DC 12 Volt Power Supply, Owner’s manual.
For pools up to 16 x 32sq feet. Larger pools or irregular shaped pools may require a second unit. See the owner manual manual for information.
