Y Guard / Y Guard

Y Guard
Y Guard

Y Guard comes from the image of a lifeguard that provides protection for our safety 24 hours.

It utilizes solar energy to provide alarms, monitoring, early warnings, resuscitations for drowning, and first aids to maintain our safety at beaches and river banks.
This design can detect invasion via infrared sensor and set off the alarm at night and high risk time to keep people away.
If drowning happens, it not only informs emergency units but also provides a life ring.
Further, it contains a first aid kit with an AED to give real time rescue in order to reduce tragic to happen.
