Peace of Mind
Lifeguard provides you the freedom to enjoy lifes adventures without feeling tethered to your hobby. Whether youre going to the beach for the weekend or taking a week-long vacation with the family, Lifeguard will stand watch over your aquarium. Knowing that Lifeguard will contact you or someone else at the first sign of trouble is incredible peace of mind!
Protect Your Investment
Lifeguard by Digital Aquatics is a completely new product that was built from the ground up to give you peace of mind and keep you connected to your aquarium in a way thats not been possible before. We started by identifying the main causes of aquarium related problems; temperature, pH and water level. We took those important parameters and built a single device that not only monitors, but can alert you if theres ever a problem! And we do it in a way thats never been done before.
Built using the latest in web technology, Lifeguard utilizes advanced standards like HTML5 and libraries like jQuery to offer a rich user experience.
Lifeguard will be the first of many products built to be sold around the globe. Language support is planned for English, Spanish, French, German and Italian.
Intuitive Graphs
Graphing in Lifeguard has been built for ease of use and speed. Getting data to you fast without having to dig for it reduces frustration and increases efficiency
Custom Alerts
Sending alerts is nothing new. Where Lifeguard separates from the pack is in sending alerts based on current trends and predictions to allow you to fix a problem before it becomes a catastrophe.
Enter Simplicity
From the start of this project our focus has been to make Lifeguard a device that anyone can use. Whether you have an advanced control system or simple timers running your aquarium, Lifeguard is a valuable addition! Because Lifeguard operates independently from any other device used by your aquarium it is perfect as a standalone monitoring system or a redundant safeguard against failure.
Amazing Performance
Using some of the latest in microprocessor technology, Lifeguard is able to take advantage of amazing processing power to provide critical data and trending analysis at the click of a button, in a way never offered before!

Track Temperature
The most common causes of tank failures are temperature spikes and drops. These can be caused by a number of things including heater or chiller failures, under powered heating or cooling systems as well as circulation pump failures. Lifeguard will constantly monitor temperature and alert you at the first sign of trouble helping you avoid complete tank disasters!
Watch pH
Another common aquarium issue is pH level shifts. pH levels can be affected by a variety of problems and while your fish can often handle reasonable swings in ph, your most delicate coral cannot! Lifeguard will, again, notify you at the first sign of trouble. This feature is even more important if youre controlling the pH levels in your aquarium! Lifeguard can send an email if your controller ever fails or an event happens where the controller is no longer able to regulate.
Monitor Water Level
Lifeguard can send out an email or a text message if the water level in your system changes beyond an acceptable level. Float switches can be connected to detect both drops in water and overflows. This can save both your tank and your home!
More Than Monitoring
From the moment you power up Lifeguard you know its more than just a monitoring system! With a rich HTML5 web based interface its compatible with any personal computer system, laptop, tablet, or smart phone. As a standalone product theres no need for a constant PC connection to get the full-feature performance of the Lifeguard system.


At Digital Aquatics we spent countless hours going over what our customers expect from an interface. Better yet, we went beyond what our customers expect from an overall product experience. We didn't want to simply make things not complicated, we wanted to guarantee that the customer can have a truly hassle free and rewarding experience every time they use Lifeguard.

Real-time Sensor Data
Sensor values can change quickly if your tank is experiencing a problem. In order to give you the quickest real-time sensor values, Lifeguard updates these values every 2 seconds. Sensor values are reported for temperature, pH and a single switch input.
Advanced Graphing Functionality
Lifeguard incorporates highly interactive graphing that gives the customer the flexibility to visually analyze their systems logged data. Whether you are trying to figure out when a temperature spike occurred or looking for the cause of a continually raised pH value, the Lifeguard graphing utility has the features you need.
Quick and Easy Setup
We understand that setting up a product needs to be quick and straight-forward. With this in mind, the setup screens in Lifeguard have been created using intuitive step-by-step instructions offering a clear and concise procedure to configure your system.
24 Hour Quick Data
In most types of aquariums, its not a brief spike that indicates a problem, its a sensor value that is consistently out of your optimal range. Lifeguard incorporates a 24 hour short term graph as well as a 24 hour average value for both temperature and pH to give you exactly the kind of data required to see these types of trends.

Breakkthrough Design
From start to finish, every little detail of the Lifeguard system has been meticulously review and reworked until we got it just right. From the beautifully simple interface to the exacting design of the enclosure youll know that Lifeguard is not just another generic aquarium product, its a work of art!
Single Button Interface
A single button interface allows for quick and trouble free navigation through key Lifeguard data. The Lifeguard display will show the current date and time, the current values for pH and Temp as well as IP address for fast network configuration.
Discrete Connections
Discrete ConnectionsThe connections on the Lifeguard system have been slightly tucked under the bottom of the aluminum enclosure. This gives a more streamlined feeling and allows for quick and easy cable management. As usual, lifeguard uses the industry standard BNC type pH probe connector.

Aluminum Enclosure
Aluminum EnclosureA lot of attention and engineering was put into the Lifeguard enclosure. We wanted the detail and quality on the outside to reflect the level of detail and quality we put on the inside. Using high-quality aluminum for the enclosure it was built to our exact specifications. We continued that attention to detail with a beautiful anodized finish and crisp laser etched printing. Be assured that Lifeguard's attention to detail is more than skin deep!
