This device is intended for monitoring purposes only and is not a substitute for pool supervision, lifeguards, fences, gates, pool covers, locks, or any other safety measures. The Pool Guardian may not detect gradual entry into the water and is not intended to prevent drowning.
NOTE: The system indoor unit must be within range of your WiFi network. The outdoor pool alarm connects through the indoor unit.
Aridea Pool Guardian Provisioning Setup
How does it work?
Simple. Place one unit in "Indoor" mode and configure it in the app, place that device inside your wifi and plug it in. Then place the other unit into "Pool" mode and deploy in your pool. Adjust sensitivity as needed. You can also setup automations and alarms/alerts through the app.
Will the pool alarm work while a removable pool cover is on?
The alarm will function with the pool cover on but we recommend to set to the most sensitive setting to negate the added friction introduced by the cover and the water surface. Also note that the outdoor alarm will also be slightly muted by the cover. We strongly recommend that you thoroughly test functionality when used with a cover, as pool cover styles and thickness vary, directly affecting sensitivity.
Will this work in a large fish pond, or will the movement of the fish trip the alarm?
This would work but direct contact from the fish could cause false positives. You can adjust the sensitivity to try to reduce this. Also, you may try implementing a wire or mesh separation to eliminate direct contact of the Pool Guardian by the fish.
Is there a monthly subscription?
No, there is not.
Will this work in a 25 yard pool?
Our testing was in smaller pools but with the most sensitive setting will likely work, but will also increase your likelihood of false positives in a larger pool. We would recommend purchasing a single unit and testing with your specific pool, if the sensitivity setting does not produce the desired result, then you can purchase an additional unit.
Does this alarm need to be turned on & off manually depending on if we're in the pool or done swimming?
The Pool Guardian can be put into disarmed though the app before swimming. The Pool Guardian will remain disarmed until it's algorithm detects that the pool is idle, then it will automatically re-engage the alarm.
How long does a charged battery last?
The alarm uses an advanced, low-powered IOT microcontroller, optimized for low power usage. Battery life can vary based on the sensitivity setting but generally runs 1-2 months between charges.
Why does my battery keep going dead every few days?
This is a bug that is induced when communication is marginal or intermittent between the inside unit and the pool unit. We are working on a firmware update that will better handle this scenario. As a workaround please ensure that your indoor unit is as close as practical to the pool unit. Also if you get an “offline” alert you can reset the pool unit and this many times will resolve.
