FAQ – Water alarmbands for toddlers
The water alarm for toddlers, that play close to water
We are happy to explain frequently asked questions
Do you have questions about the water alarm? In our FAQs we have summarized the most important answers briefly and compactly for you.
If the battery is dead, the base station will not recognize the wristband and an alarm will be generated within 10 seconds of startup.
If the battery power on the wristband with sensor becomes too low during operation, the receiver triggers an audible and visual alarm.
Yes. It is a common flat battery (3V type CR 2032), which can be changed with the supplied screwdriver. However, we recommend having the battery replaced by a specialist, so that an absolute watertightness can continue to be ensured.
A battery change depends on the hours of use of the device. As soon as the voltage of the battery drops slightly, the base station stops connecting to the wristband and requires a battery change. We recommend using a new battery at the beginning of each season. For a bathing season, the voltage of the battery usually stops. Provided the battery has not been on the shelves for several years.
You should always have a spare battery with you in case of a voltage drop of the used Battery to be able to react quickly. A fresh set of batteries will last for 6 months. The base station can be operated with these batteries (AA-Mignon), which are also available in every resort, should they become empty. In addition, the base station can be operated with the supplied power plug.
The bracelet can be easily adapted to the size of the wrist. This is usually done once per bathing season. Then it can be easily removed and put on with a quick-release fastener in just a few seconds.
The maximum range in the open area is 50 meters. This means there is visual contact from the base station (receiver) to the transmitter (wristband).
No, but the bracelet automatically shuts off after 12 hours. After this time or when it is used again, it must be reactivated by simultaneously touching the metal points.
Since the permanent connection between receiver (base station) and transmitter (bracelet) is queried, we trigger a visual and audible alarm at the base station if this connection is lost.
Yes, if the wristband has not been connected to the base station for more than 12 hours, it must be reactivated. You can also touch the metal points of the bracelet with a wet or damp finger to activate it. This feature really makes sense, as it significantly extends battery life.
Yes, the bracelet (transmitter) is freshwater and seawater suitable.
Yes, the bracelet is very resistant to dirt and a closed unit.
Yes. Insert 5 pieces 1.5V type LR6 / AM3 / AA. Do not use rechargeable batteries.
No, they can operate three bracelets on a base station. A red transmitter bracelet (whale) is included in the set. Just order a green and blue bracelet.
Yes, but protect the base station by packing it in the included protective bag.
All our water alarm systems send on the same frequency (433 Mhz). In addition, there is still a coding, which differs on information, which are sent along with the signal, the different bracelets.
The water alarm has been tested for the following chemicals:
– Cadmium, EN112 – Dimtyl fumarate – Saliva and sweat simulant, DIN 53160 – Plasticizer migration, DIN EN 71-9 – Plasticizer law, EPA M 1625 – Solvent migration, DIN EN 71-9 – Monomer migration, DIN EN 71-9 – Metal migration, DIN EN 71-3 – R OHS – PAK, ZEK 01-08. In summary it can be stated that the product is “free” of plasticizers and PAHs, where “free” refers to limit values, which means in concrete terms that the measured values are below the limit values.
Maximum allowed are 110db. Our set uses for the alarm maximum 100 db in order to have some more buffer to the limit.
Child labor can be excluded as the company that produces the product is certified BSCI (http://www.bsci-intl.org/).
The device is seawater suitable. It was tested in seawater. The seawater has an average salinity of 3.5% by weight.
Real long-term tests are not available. But last year we sold 8000 pieces of this device and only 3 complained. They claimed that the Moby battery was empty. But apparently there are often failures with the batteries, as far as the durability is concerned. That’s why there is usually no guarantee for batteries. In summary, it can be said that there is no problem with this device.
There are two different radio frequencies in the water alarm, so that two nearby devices do not interfere with each other. Short explanation for a repeat order: If the included red whale (transmitter) is used and a second whale (transmitter) wants to be bought, the customer orders either a blue or a green whale (transmitter). All used whales (transmitters) must have the same code, but different colors! To do this, the customer must read the code from the back of the existing whale or the CODE attached to the receiver and indicate this CODE (either 01 or 02) when ordering.
