Pool Patrol PA-30 Pool Alarm Features
Best buoy pool alarm
This Pool Patrol PA-30 is one of the best buoy alarms. It floats on the water surface to detect water motion caused by intruders. The installation is so simple. As a buoy alarm, you just leave this alarm to easily float or you also can tie it to the near side that is close to your house, which will not discount the quality of the alarms.
More sensitive sensor
Thanks to its built-in sensor, it is able to monitor the water motion of your pool. Once a wave is detected, it will sound an alarm, because this means something or someone has entered your pool without permission. However, this kind of sensor has its drawbacks. False alarms will be set off easily, because this type of sensor only detects water waves, while others pool alarms detect water displacement or water motion. Heavy wind can cause false alarms. Sometimes, you may feel confused, because you may not know whether an object dropping into the pool or just heavy wind sets an alarm. In order to solve this problem, it comes with sensitivity settings. If you get many false alarms caused by wind, you can lower its sensitivity. Instead, you may need to adjust it to a higher level.
A remote is included
This model also comes with a remote. This means once the sensor detects any waves, an alarm will be set off and you will hear the alarm at the remote receiver (mostly at home) and at your pool. This also means even if you are not near your pool, you can hear the alarm as soon as possible. Any alarm will not be missed. There is also a button on the remote receiver that allows you to turn on or off the remote. For example, before going out, you can turn off it. An indicator will tell you its status. Before using the pool, you also can easily shut off the alarm. Therefore, you will not have any trouble when you get into your pool. This remote receiver is effective if the distance between the pool alarm and it is less than 200 feet. This means even if you have a large yard or house, you can use it and will not miss any alert.
