There are many houses with swimming pools in New Zealand with great coastal or wide landscape views. The outlook beyond the house through the pool area is often marred by the presence of a pool fence, often right in the line of sight. These fences also frequently break up the surrounding deck area, compromising the placement of furniture and activities around the pool.

 

The safety of children around the pool is paramount. When in or near the pool, they must have constant adult supervision.

Intellisys Ltd has developed a technology based “Virtual Pool Fence” which has embraced the requirements for safety but without compromising the aesthetics of a beautiful pool and the views beyond. By monitoring and controlling the locking of the doors to the pool area, as well as a point to point beam setup that spans between the house and the pool, the virtual pool fence provides 2 barriers of defense for accessing the pool.

The doors providing access to the pool area are electronically locked and monitored. This is the first barrier of defense. When any of the doors are unlocked, the house sirens will squawk, alerting the occupants that a pool door has been unlocked, and the Point to Point beams fencing the pool is immediately armed. 

When the door is opened, the outside access keypad will sound a beep, giving a warning countdown. If the door is not shut within 7 seconds the internal 110dB sirens and the external siren will sound.

Once through the door, the area around the pool can be used, but with the protection of having the Point to Point fence still armed. If these beams are broken, then a 110dB inside alarm siren and the outside alarm siren is turned on.

In order to use the pool, an adult needs to set a pin code on the keypad located outside, near the door, thus ensuring an adult is present “to open the virtual gate”. This keypad will also allow the user access to the house from the pool area. 

 

As with any physical council approved fencing, once children are in the pool, they must be supervised by the adult – our “Virtual Pool Fence” does not change that requirement. The system is battery backed up and fully operational for approximately 18-20 hours, if there is a power cut. A larger battery may be used if a more extended up time is required.
