Part #: 30-0100-001

Not ready for a controller? Protect your tank with Lifeguard™ by Digital Aquatics.

Reliable monitoring and protection. Digital Aquatics’ Lifeguard™ monitoring system protects your aquarium by monitoring the three parameters that most often lead to tank crashes: temperature, pH and water level (via a switch input). Lifeguard is a super-easy-to-use alternative for anyone who wants to protect their tank without using a controller.

Affordable and integrated. Lifeguard is the only tank protection system that includes built-in pH measurement and built-in Ethernet at such a low price. Lifeguard comes with everything you need –including probes and cables – to monitor pH, temperature and one or more switch devices. Lifeguard comes with a pH probe, a temperature probe and a cable for the switch input. Lifeguard also comes with a power adapter, a quick-start guide and an Ethernet cable for connection to your home or office network and the Internet. The switch cable can be connected to a float switch, a leak detector, or multiple switch devices in series or parallel.

Advanced data logging and graphing help you spot trends. Lifeguard’s advanced data logging and graphing features enable you to spot temperature and pH trends. Spotting trends helps you prevent harmful conditions and take better care of your aquarium.

Lifeguard 24-hour Graph
Monitor your aquarium from anywhere, anytime. Built-in Ethernet connectivity enables you to access Lifeguard’s monitoring and graphing features from the Internet. It’s like having your aquarium with you, anywhere, anytime.

Email alerts keep you informed. Lifeguard helps you respond quickly to out-of-bounds tank conditions by sending you email alerts when temperature or pH crosses user-definable thresholds, or when the switch input opens or closes.

New v2 features make Lifeguard even more powerful. Our new v2 firmware makes Lifeguard an even more powerful tool for monitoring and protecting your aquarium.
  • Alert emails can now identify which Lifeguard unit sent the email –great for users with multiple Lifeguard units.
  • Significantly Improved pH and temperature measurement stability throughout the measurement ranges
  • Greatly improved pH calibration algorithm
  • Improved alert e-mail hysteresis - this prevents Lifeguard from sending too many e-mail alerts if the measurement value is fluctuating about the trigger points.
  • Improved long-term graphing performance.
Easy to set up. Easy to use. Lifeguard’s intuitive user interface makes the system a breeze to use. The included quick-start guide and easy-to-use online user guide (free download – see below) will help you get your Lifeguard system up and running quickly and easily.

Redundancy for controlled aquariums. Already have a controller on your tank? Lifeguard adds an affordable level of redundancy to help you protect your investment in your aquarium. For maximum protection, Lifeguard operates independently of any other controller or aquarium device.

Not happy Product Review by JOHN SHARROCK (Posted on 11/18/12)

Below Average

Comments: The lifeguard controller monitors the basics as promised. It is small goodlooking and easy to read. Setup was fairly easy except linking the device wirelessly which I have given up on and am in the process of hard wiring it. My main disappointment is It gets stuck or pauses and needs to be unplugged and plugged again for it to function making it useless if you are planning on using it to monitor your tank while away. The purpose I purchased it for. Leaving me very disappointed

pH probe -meter dosen't work Product Review by JOSEPH GRUMME (Posted on 7/7/13)
Rating
Unsatisfactory

Comments: Have been using on freshwater tank for 2 months. Temp and switch work fine. Could not get pH calibrated. Bought another probe, same result.

Digital Aquatics customer service does not work. They will not respond to e-mails. and they never answer the phone because they are "short staffed". I did get some help from Marine Depot to fix a switch set-up problem.

This instrument is useless to me because it won't measure pH accurately. by the way, I set up wireless using aLinksys Wireless-N Extender. A snap to do.

waste of money Product Review by MICHAEL KROLL (Posted on 3/11/13)

Unsatisfactory

Comments: after the first moth of having controller, had to send it back to get fixed. after that still had MANY issues, way over priced for what you get, probes are not very accurate, i lost data logging on ph side then just last week lost it on temp side, can not set time right, list goes on. and not to mention not mac friendly. should of bought the neptune controller.

Poor quality product Product Review by JEREMY GOSNELL (Posted on 3/5/13)

Unsatisfactory

Comments: Easy to set up, that's about it. The temp probe stinks, the ph probe is hard to calibrate and the list goes on. I do not recommend. That is without mentioning, it is WAY overpriced.

What a waste of money Product Review by Eddie Correa (Posted on 2/21/13)
Rating
Unsatisfactory

Comments: This thing is such a waste. While it has a good idea behind it(small, good looking, and functional) you can do the same thing with a controller and actually control some outlets. For $200 you can get a controller, monitor PH and Temp, and control 4 outlets. If this were $75 then I would call it a good deal. Otherwise you are just throwing your money in the toilet. It wouldn't let me give it ZERO stars so I gave it Half a star.
