Works as advertise but you cannot switch it off Review by Marty
The alarm definitely works as advertised but be aware there is no means in which to turn the alarm off other than taking it apart and removing the batteries.
The reasons I want to turn it off:
1) The wind here does not gust often, but when it does it continually sets off the alarm (every 5 minutes or so).
2) When people are swimming in the pool all you can do is switch to swim mode. But if they quit moving for a few minutes (like lounging in a water chair) or if they climb out to get a drink the alarm arms itself again in about 3 minutes, so when they do move or jump back in, off it goes again.
Given the reasons above with all the false alarms I'm afraid that it's value as an alarm is severely diminished.
