Drowning is the number one cause of DEATH in young children. Pool Angel is the science and technology of machines that see, giving you the most advanced second set of eyes when it comes to the safety of your children and pets within your individually defined pool area.
By using the latest in camera technology, hardware and our deep learning algorithm, we are able to define people, pets, objects and zones.
This allows us to create an early warning system, giving you time to respond to any possible situation.
Warnings will be relayed via the app on your mobile phone and sounding your house alarm sirens.
If no acknowledgement is received in the given time frame our monitoring steps in assessing the situation and deploys the required emergency services.
Multiple phones can be assigned to the system allowing you to add the whole family to your monitoring network

GROUND-BREAKING COMPUTER VISION TECHNOLOGY
With the advancement in camera’s, hardware technology and network speed new opportunities for computer vision system’s never before considered are now within reach.
In the last few years, deep neural networks have emerged as the dominant approach to working with camera video and images. These neural networks learn from data. For example, in order to teach a deep neural network what to look for, we feed it thousands of images, and it gradually “learns”. In contrast, more traditional approaches to computer vision focus on colour spaces, gradients and edges in the image, regions of interest within the image, and other machine learning techniques to extract intermediate “features” from the image.
Human pose estimation is important in the field of Computer Vision. Imagine being able to track a person’s every small movement and do a bio-mechanical analysis in real time. The technology allows us to determine the difference between swimming and drowning, climbing and walking.
Pose Estimation is predicting the body part or joint positions of a person from an image or a video and then determining what future action may occur.
Several camera tasks take the form of “detection and classification”. Both are necessary in order to understand the environment. The computer has to both find where objects are in a camera image (“detection”, or sometimes “localization”) and also determine what they are (“classification”).
And the computer has to do this fast enough to hand off the results to the rest of the driving system, so other components of the system can use the data to make decisions.
Pool Angel is the science and technology of machines that see, giving you the most advanced second set of eyes when it comes to your loved ones and pets within your individually defined pool area.
Your child’s safety is our number one priority.
Pool Angel monitors your pool area 24/7 for movement of unattended children or pets and notifies you instantly if they are in danger. Seconds are precious when it comes to child safety in these uncertain moments; do not become one of the horrifying statistics.
Receive an alert if an unrecognised person is using your pool or the surrounding area.
Pose detection is what gives us a unique advantage. In the same way that you can “just tell” when someone is about to slip or fall before it happens, our AI uses pose analysis to detect and give an early warning of danger.
Get alerted when a loved one enters your pool area, in case they are in danger of falling or drowning in the pool while unattended. Child safety is paramount.
Get alerted when your pet(s) enter the pool area. Always know what they are doing and if they are safe around the pool.
Get alerts when someone is stealing items from your pool area.
Utilising the latest available hardware in the marketplace along with our certified installation members worldwide, we are able to define and personalize each and every pool zone
Our team of software engineers from across the globe have combined cutting edge algorithms and techniques to monitor movement, shape and pose to define situations
By combining innovation and intelligence we created the system that will give you piece of mind your loved ones are monitored even when you may be distracted or diverted. There is no more advanced pool safety system.

The artificial intelligence uses frame by frame comparison to detect an object that was not previously there or the disappearance of an object from the field of view. It learns what ‘normal’ looks like and spots differences. In ‘Supervised’ mode, alerts to objects such as pool toys or outdoor furniture being moved will be suppressed to avoid false alarms. When you leave the pool area a new ‘normal’ is established.
By using a combination of two cameras, one to identify individuals as they enter the designated area and the other to monitor the whole area, the artificial intelligence can keep track of an identified individual for as long as they remain within the field of view. Both cameras are connected to the same processor so the first can pass the identity to the second, allowing the second to continue showing the identity of the individual even when their face is not visible to the camera.
In case you are concerned about privacy, be assured that nobody sees the feed from your camera unless an emergency is detected and not acknowledged locally. Instead, the artificial intelligence identifies key points on the human body such as shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees and ankles. It uses the relative position of these key points to determine the pose of the body and has been trained to recognise poses that indicate danger.
‘Supervised’ mode is designed for use when swimming is planned, with a responsible adult present. It won’t bother you with constant alerts as people enter the area but the system will still raise the alarm if someone disappears underwater for longer than you have deemed acceptable.
We strongly encourage use of a Pool Angel lanyard during such sessions so that there is no doubt over who has assumed responsibility for keeping watch over children in the pool. Child drownings can happen even with multiple adults present if they all assume that someone else is paying attention. Pool Angel offers you an added layer of protection; by comparing the number of people detected frame by frame, the artificial intelligence can spot when someone is missing and raise the alarm.
Because the artificial intelligence can learn from experience it can learn to tell the difference between your pet and local wildlife that might encroach on your pool area. This means that you can keep your pets safe without being disturbed by false alarms during the night when animals may encroach on your pool area; although you might be intrigued to view clips of your nocturnal visitors in the morning. A short video clip is stored each time something is detected.
If an adult is detected in the pool area the system will alert you and prompt you to switch to ‘Supervised’ mode if you haven’t already done so. This mode is designed for planned use of the pool and will suppress alerts to entry and exit from the pool area. When the last adult leaves the area the system detects that too and prompts you to switch back to keeping watch over the empty pool. An emergency alarm is raised if the departure of that adult leaves an unsupervised child in the pool area.
Although we refer to the boundary around a swimming pool, the camera can be used to keep watch over any boundary you designate. It can keep watch over a trampoline, climbing frame, the tool shed, any area that could present a danger to unsupervised children. By comparing what was present in a previous frame with what is currently in frame, the artificial intelligence can detect the arrival of something or someone new in the designated area.
