CamerEye takes pride in the fact that we are the only camera-based pool alarm to meet the stringent ASTM F2208-08 Pool Safety standard for residential pool alarms.
What is ASTM F2208-08? #
ASTM F2208-08 deals with the performance requirements for pool alarms for residential swimming pools and spas. This specification covers devices that provide for rapid and automatic detection and alarm in cases of unintentional, unsupervised or accidental entry of a child one year of age or older into the water of swimming pools or spas. The ASTM F2208-08 specification addresses four types of alarms:
Type A, Surface #
A pool alarm that floats on the water’s surface
Type B, Subsurface #
A pool alarm that is positioned beneath the water’s surface.
Type C, Pool Perimeter #
A pool alarm that detects movement at or above the water’s surface
Type D, Personal Immersion Alarm #
A pool alarm that is worn by the user (s).
1.1 This safety specification addresses the safety and performance criteria for residential swimming pool and spa alarms.
1.2 The devices described in this safety specification are intended to increase personal safety and decrease injuries or deaths.
1.3 This safety specification applies to systems that offer immediate and automatic detection and alarm in the event of an unintended, unsupervised, or accidental entry of a child aged one year or older into the water of swimming pools or spas.
1.4 This safety criterion is not meant to replace other standard safety standards, such as adult supervision, fences, gates, locks, and so on.
1.5 This safety specification addresses four types of alarms.
1.6 The detection criteria for this safety specification are for children aged one year and up.
1.7 The numbers given in inch-pound units are to be considered standard. The values in parenthesis are mathematical conversions to SI units supplied for information purposes only and should not be considered standard.
1.8 This standard does not claim to resolve all, if any, safety risks associated with its use. Prior to usage, it is the user’s obligation to establish adequate safety, health, and environmental standards and to evaluate the application of regulatory constraints.
1.9 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized standardization principles established in the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee’s Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides, and Recommendations.
