What kind of alarms do you have on your property? Many homeowners opt for security cameras, or motion-sensing floodlights, carbon monoxide detectors, smoke detectors, and more. But what about your pool? Especially if your family includes young children, you’ll want to do what you can to prevent unintentional drowning. This tragedy, unfortunately, kills 700 children per year in the United States, and that number jumps to five times as high for nonfatal injuries related to water submersion.
When considering a pool alarm system, you might consider including a variety of different sensors. For example, there are contact sensors that can be placed on doors, windows, or gates that lead to the pool area, which make you aware of any unexpected entry. And you might also install sensors inside the pool – some are placed on top of the water, others under the water, and still others on the walls of the pool.
