With summer starting and the popularity of swimming pools skyrocketing, Vivint has released a new, free feature for the Vivint Outdoor Camera Pro to help increase pool safety.
The new feature, called Pool Alerts, lets users create an additional detection zone around their pool, then immediately notifies them if someone enters that area.
The Vivint Outdoor Camera Pro is motion-triggered and will automatically record a clip and send a notification to the user’s phone if someone enters the pool area. Users will know immediately when someone enters the pool area and can take fast — and potentially life-saving — action.
Users can also add a pool alert to other potentially unsafe areas, providing additional detection for homes. As the Outdoor Camera Pro’s Smart Deter feature can distinguish between people and animals, notifications won’t go off if an animal wanders into the detection zone.
For more information, Vivint has provided a blog on Pool Alerts.
