Much More Than a Closed-Circuit TV
or Security Camera System

The artificial intelligence of the software uses the cameras as its eyes

  • State-of-the-art computer vision and aquatic image processing
  • Provides independent surveillance, complementing that of the lifeguards’
  • Recognizes texture, volume and movement within the pool
  • Differentiates between “normal” activity and “suspicious” activity
  • Tracks trajectory of victim to the bottom of the pool and counts 10 seconds before alert
  • Sounds 100db audible alerts and flashes an LED display of victim’s location coordinates

Warning: The Poseidon system is intended to complement lifeguards, not replace them or reduce their responsibilities or vigilance. Poseidon does not save people from drowning – lifeguards do. Under no circumstances should the presence or use of Poseidon result in the reduction or modification of lifeguard staffing or duties as required by regulation or normal practices.
