The Hub can monitor up to 60 swimmers at once and communicates with every paired Band (swimmers and guards) several times per second. A loud alarm and strobe light are triggered on the Hub and Guard Bands when a swimmer is in trouble. The Hub is typically located near a guard stand or poolside, and for the best range is at least four to five feet above the pool deck.
The Swim Band
Each swimmer wears a comfortable and light weight Swim Band that is configured to one of three preset swim levels. If a swimmer is submerged for too long, the Swim Band will sound a loud alarm and flash a strobe light as well as send a signal to the Hub and Guard Bands that will alert lifeguards.
The Guard Band
Guard Bands receive the same alarms as the Hub and are worn by designated lifeguards or pool supervisors. This allows guards to patrol the pool deck or scan their zone without having to remain in proximity to the Hub. You can change the number of Guard Bands in your system with the press of a button.
Patented RFAO Technology
The Hub continuously monitors each Band within its range, checking in with each Band several times a second using patented RFAO technology. If a Band is submerged under water for too long, the Hub and Guard Bands will alarm with a loud siren and strobe lights.
Four Different Swim Levels
Simply place your Bands in the Charger and press the Swim Level button until the Charger and Band flash with the correct Swim Level color for your swimmer. Whether it’s worn by a toddler, a child taking swimming lessons, or your lifeguards, the Band is now set to notify you if it’s submerged past the set time for that Swim Level. It’s simple-to-use, smart technology that can save lives.
Warnings and AlarmsFor the most part, the SEAL SwimSafe™ System will silently monitor swimmers and only alert you in situations where you might need to take an action. Below are descriptions of what you might experience with the System regularly.
Unclasped Band Warning – If a swimmer unclasps their Band during use, the System will provide an Unclasped Band Alarm (Solid Yellow lights, low ‘chirp’ sound) If the Band is re-clasped, the indicators will automatically turn off.
Low Battery Warning – A Band or Hub with a low battery will provide warnings until they are put back in the Charger. If you receive low battery warnings, immediately put the low battery Band or Hub back in the Charger.
Submersion Alarm – If a swimmer has been submerged for too long based on their Swim Level setting, the System will go into Full Alarm until the swimmer returns to the surface. In a Full Alarm situation, rescue procedures should be put into action.
Out of Area Alarm – If a swimmer wearing a Band leaves the pool area they will be alerted by an Out of Area ‘reminder alert’ from their band to return to the swim area. If they ignore this alert then after a short period the System will go into full alarm.
Dead Battery Alarm – If a Band is allowed to go completely dead, the System alarms because that Band is no longer protecting the swimmer.
