About this project
THE MOST INNOVATING SISTEM TO AVOID DROWNINGS IN YOUR SWIMMING POOL
We all know that, unfortunately, a pool can be really dangerous for the most vulnerable. Drowning is the second leading cause of accidental death, after traffic accidents, in people under 19 years of age. According to the W.H.O., it is estimated that 372,000 people die every year from drowning. But for now, human surveillance is the only effective cause of prevention. HERE IS WHERE DI-WATCH COMES INTO PLAY! Our first observation was that human surveillance is, mainly, the first and most effective prevention measure, but unfortunately it is not foolproof. So, we started to think. Who helps the watcher? A different eye to look and a different brain to think, taken to the field of new technologies, would give us a camera watching our pool and software processing every image 24/7. That would immediately alert us to any possible incident and that would allow us to act in time. Our project consists of an interactive surveillance system to prevent drowning!
ABOUT THIS PROJECT diWatch is an innovative system of prevention of drowning in pools, which through a powerful computer application using a DIY KIT composed of one or several domestic cameras that are installed in the pool, allows to detect a possible drowning inside the pool by processing images on a powerful server in the cloud and using the WIFI network of housing, hotel or public space. The product, of affordable cost, does not need any other hardware and can be powered by solar energy. It has software that, through analysis of body and water behavior , detects when there is a possibility of drowning. At the minimum sign detected, diWatch sends an alarm to the cell phone or Tablet programmed as well as to a house alarm. The kit is self-installable and its configuration is very simple through the use of an APP and a wizard, once installed it is compatible with the Home Kit technology of IOS and Android. diWatch allows increasing safety in any type of swimming pool, providing absolute peace of mind to the swimmers and their families. The system is designed to prevent drownings, alerting by the use of alarms of any type of suspicious behavior, monitoring individually each of the swimmers that is in or at the edge of the pool. By simply downloading the diWatch App on your iPhone or Android device and with a simple installation of an alarm and a standard solar camera, placed in the recommended location, the system provides the necessary kit to prevent our loved ones from any potential drowning. diWatch provides three different early alerts: • Person falls into a pool, • Suspicious movements of drowning • Excessive time of immersion. It also notifies us if one of our pets falls accidentally into the pool or if any unauthorized person enters the area.
diWatch is designed to prevent drowning in swimming pools of any kind, but most of all it is aimed at all those who own a house with a swimming pool, whatever the size is. It is clear that the swimming pool is a fantastic place to have a good time, we can swim and relax, children can play and have fun ... We use them with our families, neighbors and friends and we love it. But the swimming pools in our homes do not have a lifeguard and there is always the possibility of an accident, if someone is alone or there is no surveillance.
With diWatch there is a 24/7 surveillance on the pool and possible incidents that may occur, both in outdoor and indoor pools.
As we can imagine, most of the accidents are suffered by children and every parent would like our children to play in the pool without risk and without permanent vigilance on our part.
diWatch detects any possible drowning in our pool, sounds an alarm and sends us an alert to our mobile phone.
It can also prevent unwanted accidents or incidents with pets or other animals. diWatch is also recommended for public pools, even if they have a lifeguard. And the hotels will find many advantages in our system , both to avoid incursions outside the swim hours and to reinforce the surveillance in pools crowded in summer.
Enjoy your swimming pool and your family, without worries. Use diWatch
The camera records video constantly when they detect movement or activity in the pool. This video is sent in compressed format, in real time, to a data processing center, after authentication.
In this center, consisting of several virtualized servers and other components of security electronics and communications, among others. Inside lies the software responsible for the analysis of images sent by cameras. A specifically designed high-performance software and a complex algorithm of identification of Color maps. All this allows to identify human bodies, creating temporary numerical identities, analyzes their movements, displacements and behaviors.
At the time a critical situation is detected, the alert system is processed by sending notifications to one or more registered user's devices and if the physical alarm is available, it will be activated and will sound until it is manually or automatically disconnected for a certain time.
We want to give you more information about one of the most important subjects of this Project: Your Privacy. This is a very important topic when we talk about images and video recordings of our family and friends being taken by a camera. The total privacy that any diWatch user enjoys is based on two basic points.
- diWatch can be easily disconnected with your APP when needed. If we want to enjoy a moment of total privacy in our pool, all we have to do is turn off the "surveillance" mode with our APP and the camera will stop recording.
- First the images that the camera captures for its processing and analysis, are never stored anywhere or any moment. These images are processed to detect possible drownings and are immediately eliminated. It is impossible for anyone, from our company or anyone else, to access to those footages or pictures.
There is no chance that a video or image of our family ends up in any unwanted site, as they automatically vanish once they are processed.
We've now finalized our diWatch prototype, but moving to the production phase requires significant capital and scale. We need your help to finance two different things: a) the required tooling and meet minimum order quantities and b) lab required certificates . We've spent months and months working out the tiniest and biggest details of this project, and we are very excited about finally having the opportunity to bring the security and safety to your pool.

YOUR CHANCE TO MAKE POSITIVE IMPACT
Every summer the news about people drowned in swimming pools are an irreparable misfortune for thousands of families. We can prevent and reduce these accidents with this new system.
And you can help us!!! The future of diWatch is in your hands, we have had a very exciting year and personal growth for the whole team and we are very close to see our dream become true.
You can be part of a project that will make a better world, a safer world. DiWatch will allow many parents to be confident in their pools, and when these terrible statistics will improve year by year, you will be able to say “Hey. I had something to do with that” We count on you, if you have a pool, do not risk it. Join our team.
What are we going to do with our backers’ investment? Once our prototype is real and tested we have to take the next step in this amazing project. We want to tell you everything about what are we going to do as we get your support:
- Produce the diWatch Kit Massively: Our kit manufacturer in Spain is ready to receive and ensemble all the Kit components and deliver them all over the globe. We cannot purchase all the components needed for all the diwatch we want to sell without your funding.
- The software that manages diWatch must be improved and get ready for an considerable increase of users. We also must improve our servers and hardware in order to respond properly to any demand the platform could need.
- A very important issue is always the security involving diWatch.
