With backyards and properties around Las Vegas swimming pools practically shrinking before our very eyes it seems like more homeowners are opting to make the home part of the access barrier around their pool. An external wall the runs alongside your swimming pool can often be used as part of a safety fence and help save money on the cost of the fence structure. But with sliding glass doors and windows as potential access points for your family swimming pool, homeowners may wonder whether this solution offers enough protection.
The answer is simple, if left alone an exterior wall doesn’t always provide safety from potential pool drownings. It is for this reason that window alarms and door alarms play an important role in pool safety. Let’s face it, if you want to maintain the safest environment for your family, friends and pets then you very likely should consider additional safety devices.
While most people quickly grasp the concept of how a fence keeps children and pets out of the pool when they think of safety devices the concept isn’t so quickly understood. Think of safety devices as alarms. This is different from your home alarm which is usually deactivated during the day and when your family is most active. If your home alarm isn’t armed then you wouldn’t be notified of a child or elderly family member opened and exited a window or sliding glass door.
With an installed safety device you could rest assured that no one has unexpectedly entered the pool area regardless of whether your traditional home alarm is activated. Just another way Las Vegas can keep our swimming pools safe.
