The pool Guardian "Security and privacy at last!"

This system has been created in order to take care of all levels of security around pools that have made so many victims. The Guardian’s main goal is to alert you of any intrusion in the pool periphery especially in any child’s presence.

The Guardian alerts you and can enable a child from falling accidentally in the pool. The Guardian can be hooked up to your home central alarm and your pool becomes monitored as well.

Most pool designs have to do a lot with esthetic not being designed for safety first. The Guardian has designed beauty and security all a once in order to protect children left unattended in the area. For the most part objects like children’s toys, left around the pool can be helpful for a young child to use it has a way of getting on the side of the pool then falling accidentally in it. Whether you do have children in your home or visitors who have some, the pool area needs to be monitored as closely and safely as possible, while you are inside your home entertaining.

With all the other alarm systems or witnesses to a child’s fall you might be alerted only when your child has fallen into the pool. Once you have been alerted of your child’s fall, would you be able to cross the distance that separates you from your child on time and getting him out within 7 seconds? 7 seconds is all it takes for an average child to have his lung filled with water. By the time you have been alerted you need to realize that you have already lost the most crucial and precious seconds in order to get the child to safety.

*Young children that fall into the water usually fall silently without people hearing the splashing water without moving their arms and legs. Scientist found that an old reflex called (diver’s instinct) takes over and makes them fall onto their belly. Laura Bemrose quotes “In this position the child can drown in a few seconds only.”

Children are curious by nature and can become vulnerable to their environment. As Laura Bemrose coordinator of water safety special project in Ottawa says: “telling children is not enough. Water is a natural attracting substance for children”.

Even if our children are the most gifted we cannot expect a two year old to act responsibly. Having learned how to swim in a control environment falling accidentally in a pool, children will most likely drown. Caroline Gagnon National Coordinator for the Canadian Red Cross in Ottawa shared that “Most of the time a child simply falls attempting to grab a toy or walking on the side of the pool.”
