With Memorial Day rapidly approaching and the weather warming up, another season of grilling, suntanning and swimming is almost here. As we focus on hamburgers and hot dogs, one element of summer might be overlooked: pool safety.
Obviously a safe pool is clean and, more importantly, is well supervised by its adult owners, but realistically it’s not always possible to keep an eye on a pool every possible second.
PoolSonix’s Solar-Powered Wireless Pool Alarm offers pool owners a unique approach in electronic monitoring pool activities in a way that differs from standard fencing, automatic covers and other safety devices.
The product’s alarm processing unit is installed at the pool’s edge and it is connected to a modular sensing probe that is placed under water. Once the system is set up and turned on it detects the nearly silent seismic wave activity that accompanies accidental pool entry.
Using a green-friendly way to power its protection, the solar-powered wireless pool alarm is designed to install quickly and PoolSonix says it’s easy to use. When homeowners turn it on the unit’s seismic wave technology monitors the pool water and if something happens it produces an alarm that notifies the pool owners to enable them to respond.
The unit also incorporates a “Swim Mode” for use while people are swimming and automatic re-engagement once after those activities are completed.
