Who Has The Best Pool Camera?
There are many kinds of pool cameras, each serving a different function for a particular situation. I will break each down and explain how it works so you have more information in which to form your own opinion on which system you feel is the best. The first is a simple viewing aid. These are underwater video cameras particularly for lifeguards to see underwater and see various places simultaneously without having to actually be there. These are geared towards public pools and have the limitation of not being capable of recording.
The second is remote monitoring. This backs the camera out of the pool and its main positive is the capability of recording. It is very effective in documenting the chain of events leading up to any unfortunate accidents involving the pool area. These are commonly placed in stationary locations in which someone must actively view the camera for hours at a time with no breaks in between. This camera system is intended for insurance purposes, being able to prove that there was no negligence on the part of the pool operator, or staff. These systems are limited to documenting the sequence of events for later review due to the difficulties of adapting to active monitoring usage. The last common method is a computer-aided drowning detection system, such as the Poseidon System and the Drowning Early Warning System (DEWS). This system up until now was the most technologically advanced category in aquatics video monitoring. These feed the video from the cameras to a computerized monitoring software package capable of tracking the activity of swimmers and alerting staff of any swimmers showing any signs of drowning. These again are geared towards public spaces. These also have the tendency to throw a false alarm.
All of these systems have some great features and serve their intended functions equally well. They also all have one thing in common; they are designed and intended for public pools and not for a home pool. You will also notice they all have certain limitations. There is a system however that is not only intended to for home use, it has multiple uses and plenty of upsides. The Pool Watchdog swimming pool safety cam is to my knowledge the only one like it on the market. The Pool Watchdog can help keep an eye on your pool when you’re not there, but it doesn’t just record what already happened, it gives you a warning “BARK” to get your attention, via Text or Email, to alert you of potential danger before it happens! The Pool Watchdog does more than just “BARK” alerts when someone is near your pool or opening your pool cover…it shows you with Live Streaming Video straight to your SmartPhone, Tablet or PC. The Pool Watchdog streams video 24/7. That video is available through your smart phone, PC, or Wi-Fi enabled device. The Pool Watchdog is also waterproof for outdoor use, or indoor. It is enabled with built-in CPU so it can be wired or wireless. It works with ANY manufacturer’s automatic pool safety cover. It comes standard with night vision and motion detection technology. That means you don’t have to wait for your child to fall into the pool to get an alert like conventional pool alarms. Link multiple cameras to your user interface, up to 9 on a single system. The Pool Watchdog also has a variety of uses not just including your pool: Nanny Cam, yard cam, plays area cam, etc. If you need more help or are interested in learning more about this incredible system log onto the website: PoolSafetyCam.com or call to order: 1-855-PoolCam There is no better feeling than knowing those most precious to you are safe whether you are there or not.
