|Underwater Sensor Pool Alarms
Underwater Sensor Alarms detect when water is displaced enough to indicate and entry of an object into the pool area. The sensitivity of these alarms vary and typically list a weight of the object that would breach the threshold to sound the alarm. Some alarm systems offer a remote receiver that can be placed in the house which will sound when the alarm is activated by an entry into your pool.
Door Pool Alarms
Door alarms typically consist of a set or two or more sensors. When the sensors are pulled apart, the alarm will sound. Some door alarms allow for a remote receiver that can also sound the alarm in another location - such as in the bedroom to alert you if a door is opened at night time where you might not hear the alarm from the origination site. There is usually a bypass button that can be used by adults to enter or exit the door without sounding the alarm. Door alarms are also great protection against intruders!
Gate Pool Alarms
Gate pool alarms are virtually identical to Door Pool Alarms. The only difference is that they are made to mount on a gate instead of a standard door. They operate on the same principals and also have a bypass button for entry.
Wrist Worn Pool Alarms
One base unit can supply protection via many wrist bands. Wrist bands are synched with the base station so that when a wristband is submersed in water, it sends a signal to the base station to sound the alarm. Some disadvantages are that they must always be on your child’s wrist for protection, you must purchase enough wrist bands for family and visitors, and they do not function in salt water. These alarms ARE perfect for children at family get-togethers and back yard BBQs where the number of people and relative chaos might create an environment that would be conducive to accidental drowning. While they will not replace supervision, they do provide an important layer of protection by alerting you immediately when a child wearing a wrist band enters the pool.
