Child Immersion Alarm
A last layer of protection for children near water
Safety Turtle provides continuous protection to the wearer. A loud alarm instantly sounds at the Base Station when the Turtle is immersed in water. The alarm continues to sound until it is reset. This continuous protection compares to water disturbance pool alarms which are deactivated (and reactivated) by whoever uses or cleans the pool or spa. This distinction is vital because toddler accidents often occur when a pool or spa area is left unsecured or when adults are in attendance.
A Safety Turtle personal alarm can also accompany a child on vacation or on visits to a boat, cottage or another pool, where unfamiliar surroundings and less security add risk.
A standard child immersion alarm system consists of:
Note: There have been instances in Dry Climate areas where the turtle will false alarm due to static electricity. This usually can be corrected by using a Turtle Sock.
- One or more Turtle Wristbands of the SAME color* including a 7.8 inch (20 cm.) locking wristband, key and matching "baby Turtle" coding plug for Base Station (or if a Pet Kit is chosen, 5" long, 3/4" wide velcro strap will be included instead of a wristband. The Velcro strap can be attached to your pet's collar.)
- A Standard Base Station
(Gate alarm accessory sold separately).
Multiple wristbands must be of the same color in order to work with a single base station.
- Child or Pet
- Colors - blue, green, yellow, red
