Promoting pool safety in the leisure industry

An Aid for Lifeguards

Swimguard is a video based drowning prevention aid for lifeguarded pools, enhancing human capability and adding an additional layer of safety.

SwimGuard’s objective is to make a positive difference to the overall safety of pool users. The installation of SwimGuard has the potential to reduce operational overheads as well as increasing customer safety.

A Swimguard system gives up to 100% coverage below the water, enabling the lifeguard to monitor the full volume of water.
Real time camera views are fed to monitors located at the lifeguard stations, each one having its own configuration for the number of cameras being displayed simultaneously. All cameras are recorded on a network based server for review either locally or remotely.

The Swimguard systems are future proofed using latest IP technology which provides an online service and support. There has been heavy R&D investment recently in this product which has produced, a new high definition stainless steel camera and a totally sealed, stainless steel daylight readable monitor. These combined, provide the best possible quality of vision for the lifeguard.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1. What would a typical installation for a 25m and teaching pool involve?

A typical system would comprise of 8 below water and 4 above water colour cameras for the 25m pool, and 2 above water colour cameras for the teaching pool. It is not usual to install cameras into water less than 1m deep. There would be 2 monitors fixed to existing lifeguard chairs, on poolside. A digital video recorder and power supply would usually be located in a manager’s office.

 

2. Can Swimguard be retro fitted and does the water level need to be dropped?

Systems are available for new and existing pools; we have perfected our retro installation methodology so that in the main there is no need to drain the pool. If the water level can be lowered by 450mm that would be beneficial. Any operationally disruptive work is carried out during closed times.  The installation of Swimguard will cause no downtime or loss of revenue with minimal disruption.

 

3. How long does it take to install a system?

A retro system can usually be installed and commissioned within a 2 week period, which would be a combination of day and night work.

 

4. Is Swimguard suitable for use within rapids and wave pools?

Yes, cameras can be effectively installed into both of these types of pools, they are both considered to be high risk areas due to the turbulence in the pool and associated difficulties of vision.

 

5. Can Swimguard help monitor unsupervised areas?

The above water cameras can be used to feed back pictures of views which would normally be obscured to a lifeguard as long as they can easily reach a particular area if required. Built in motion detect software, working in conjunction with the above water cameras can be set up to produce an alarm if there is intrusion into any particular area.

 

6. Is Swimguard compatible with the lifeguards 10:20 scan principle?

Yes, because all the images at shown simultaneously at the lifeguard position, it is a very quick operation to check the screen within the total allowed scan time of 10 seconds.

 

7. Does Swimguard intrude on an individual’s personal privacy?

The lifeguards are the only people continually looking at the images as part of their role; the images are not available for public viewing. There should be no worries at all about privacy, the system is not covert, signs are on display and it is there to help prevent drownings and serious injury. Most facilities have a general CCTV and data protection policy, Swimguard would be incorporated within this.

 

8. Is there a social benefit by installing Swimguard?

Communication with patrons is essential, once it is understood the equipment is in place to safeguard swimmers and form a strategic part of the child protection policy it is generally accepted.

 

9. Are there any secondary benefits of Swimguard?

The system has multiple additional benefits as well as helping the lifeguard, for example, it can play a major part in claims management. It deters and monitors anti-social behaviour and can help with teaching and coaching.

 

10. What is the warranty on a Swimguard System?

Once installed and commissioned, the system carries a full warranty on parts and labour for a period of 12 months. Following the warranty period, customers will be invited to join a cost effective, comprehensive service and maintenance plan.

 

11. Does Swimguard conform to latest electrical regulations?

Yes, the below water cameras operate at 12Volts DC which is compliant with the 17th Edition of Electrical Regulations relating to equipment installed into Zone A, the lifeguard monitors also run off 12vDC as they are usually within Zone B or C. The Swimguard Power Supply and Control Unit offers SELV mains transformers, the video signals are optically isolated from mains to 1000 volts.
