It's time to SwimSmart.

Complete control

The SwimSmart warning system allows for manual override if conditions warrant so.

Certified product

SwimSmart uses high quality components—our control boxes are MET listed and UL 508A compliant.

Power plan

Solar assemblies can be the primary of backup power source, enabling SwimSmart operable even at the most remote beaches!

High visibility

SwimSmart’s traffic lights are designed for high directivity—allowing them to be seen from thousands of feet away, even in broad daylight.

Familiar Signage

Many tourists do not understand the meaning behind safety flags. We are commonly taught about traffic lights as kids and the importance of obeying this safety measure. We are reusing traditional beach safety flag language for a clean transition.

Constant connection

All SwimSmart systems are connected to the internet through a combination of cellular, ethernet, or fiber networks. As the backbone, cellular communication is secure and reliable, allowing for peace of mind on system integrity.

SwimSmart uses advanced long-range 5G radios and powerful antennas to connect in locations where others can’t. Our devices come standard with a dual SIM option, allowing for a fallback network if one operator is down.
