Wristband Alarms

- are pool alarms that are triggered by a device worn on the wrist

  • It gives immediate alerts if the wearer touches water, triggering a loud alarm from a base-unit which can be up 50m/150ft away
  • Produces an unmistakable, warbling alarm that quickly builds to an alarming 110 decibels
  • Parents can immediately react to save their child or family member from potential injury or death
  • The systems are completely portable and so can be taken with you to lakes, a neighbours pool or hot-tub, ponds, fishing trips, etc., powered by an adaptor that plugs directly into the car cigarette lighter socket
  • Rain does not trigger the alarm (but it's probably a good idea to get the kids in out of the rain, anyway!)
  • The wristbands are normally sealed-for-life but batteries can last up to 3 or 4 years. Some models have a test mode for checking battery life and a 'beeping' alert for low battery power

  • Kids love the fun designs of most wristbands and will wear them willingly; even when they're just playing in the back yard or using the bathroom (many kids have drowned in bathtubs)
  • Can be used to protect kids, pets or vulnerable adults

  • Wristband Alarms can give parents a false sense of security - parental supervision is still the best form of safety around water


  • Most models come with just one wristband (additional bands cost about $55 each)


  • Not suitable for sea or saltwater pools use, but I understand that the manufacturers are working on this


Wireless Gate Alarm Sensor 

This device, which works in conjunction with the Base Station, greatly improves the security of a Safety Fence

A gate alarm reinforces the weakest link of any pool fence; the gate latch. Nothing lasts for ever and gate latches are no exception; like all mechanical devices they are subject to deterioration over time and will eventually fail

The alarm will sound (VERY LOUDLY!) if a child succeeds in unlatching the gate, if the gate fails to re-latch after the gate has been opened by an adult, or if a child wearing a Turtle Wristband enters the water
