Talos™  Lightning detector for pools

Talos™ SFD-1000 Storm Front Detector for Pools & Pool Safety

The Talos™ SFD-1000 Storm Front Detector uses the same technology that expensive weather stations utilize. PMT packaged that technology into a low-cost lightning detector for pools.


Lightning causes over a 6000 deaths and injuries per year. Since 2006, lightning strikes were reported as the second leading cause of storm deaths in the United States. Most of these injuries could have been prevented had they known that lightning was in the area.


Talos™ can detect lightning up to 25 miles away providing both visual and audible alerts of approaching and departing storm fronts creating an awareness of a potentially life-threatening situation.

3 Different Colors Indicate the Distance (approaching or departing) of the Storm Front
