Overall it functions well. I had one false alarm so far this season on a very windy day and I don't fault the product for that. I don't think it's long enough either. We have a typical in ground pool with normal water level height. They recommend 4 inches submerged, and the best I can get when my pool as at recommend water level is 3. They say minimum of 2.5... so yeah.
If it wasn't $200 I might not be so critical, however it just makes simple hops in the pool a pain. There could have easily been a remote on/off tied to the remote alarm, or maybe even a model option with a button on the unit itself to disarm. Sure, sell the intrusion proof model for those worried about burglars swimming in their pool, but for the rest of us just worried about getting distracted and having a kid fall in, just give us a button so we can pop in and out of the pool without going to grab a key!
I usually add up the 1* and 2* reviews and see what the overall percentage is. I don't usually order anything where more than 10% hate it. This sits at 34% and shouldv'e warned me off.
It comes in a nice printed box. The instructions are clearly written by an Engineer as they are overly long and wordy (I know because I'm an Engineer and it's how I would write them). Installation is easy. Just find a spot along the long edge of the pool, mark up the position for a hole and drill it. They don't give a template or include a drill bit which for $200 is pretty shocking.
The thing is turned on and off with a little "key". It's basically just a magnet in a rubber case. You only get one and it doesn't secure to the unit. Again, poor for $200.
There is an extension sounder that looks like a 4th grade electronics project. It's the cheapest piece of crap I've ever seen.
To use the unit, you put it in the water, wait for the waves to subside, and then turn it on with the key by touching a pad for several seconds. There's a dim green LED that flashes to tell you it's working.
Our first test worked and the thing went off, as did the extension box in the house, about 30 feet away.
It then took me about 5 mins to disarm the thing with the key. It's deafening so you end up shoving your finger in the hole of the sounder, while someone unplugs the house unit. Just when you think its disarmed it goes off again, and again, and again, ad infinitum.
Eventually you think it's OK. You walk away, a light breeze comes over, and it's off again.
After trying this over a couple of hours I gave up and sent it back.
There is no adjustable sensitivty on the unit. None. There is no control app to turn the thing on and off.
I'm an Electronics Engineer. I've been desiging products for 30 years. I had a quick look at the parts in this thing. It's essentially a float valve with an actuator that gives a value proportional to its position in the water. Some very basic electronics samples this, looks for an average and fires if the thing is triggered by a large value being sampled outside of the average. The magnet key is almost certainly a reed switch. The entire BOM cost of the thing can't be more than $20, and most of that is the cardboard box! The unit could be vastly improved with some intelligence from a cheap microcontroller and an app on your phone to manage it, which is presumably how lifebuoy etc work.
This is like something from the stone age.

No false alarms yet. Alarm is loud enough that it can't be ignored.
Depends on wave action - a quite entry won't trigger it. May not detect a very small toddler going in by the stairs.
Pool water surface has to be pretty close to the deck - may not work for some pools. (The corner of my pool where I initially wanted to install it was too far off the water.) In my opinion, this is something Poolguard should correct.
Par contre pour faire taire l'alarme ça ne fonctionne pas du premier coup.
Pour sauver la vie d'un enfant ça vaut la peine!
We’ve tested it time & time again. It only goes off with sudden wave or jump.
Not feeling secure with this alarm.
