People usually take for granted that public swimming pools are safe, whether at a hotel, a private club or at a city pool. But even with the best of lifeguards on duty accidents will happen.
Lynxight boasts that its tech seamlessly blends advanced pool safety with the “ease and reliability” of a service. Facilities with standard security cameras and Wi-Fi can connect pool staff and lifeguards to the platform to receive real-time smartwatch alerts on swimmer distress behavior, drowning risk, and pool overcrowding and track swimmer count, location, and density for a 360-degree operational view with live metrics. Data analytics on pool activities serve as a basis for collaboration with insurance companies and risk management programs, providing unprecedented visibility into aquatic exposures.
In other words, Lynxnight takes much of the human element out of the equation. People make mistakes, and they cannot see everything everywhere. But with modern technologies, lifeguards can get the help they need to stay on top of everything. Soon lifeguards everywhere will have their eyes fixed on computer screens instead of the water because the service will give them a better picture of what is happening.
“We are proud to join Champel’s portfolio of companies,” said Omer Bar-Ilan, CEO, and Co-Founder of Lynxight. “Champel Capital’s vision of investing in companies using technology to impact everyday life and respond to real market needs is admirable. We are excited about how this round of funding will help us scale for the future.”
“Using AI to manage aquatic risks is a game-changer for the industry and sets the bar for a new safety standard,” said Eyal Amit, CCO & Co-Founder of Lynxight. “Not only does our service immediately enhance guest safety at the pool, it creates clear financial advantages for facility managers and insurance partners. A simple win-win-win that makes sense for all parties involved.”
Lynxight has recently joined Champel Capital’s investment portfolio, having co-led the round with Boresight, and joined by Aristagora VC, Open Valley, Gil Midyan and others.
