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.
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.

Digital Aquatics Aquarium Supplies Digital Aquatics was founded in 2004 and has quickly become the most recognized name in aquarium automation. Since the company debuted the original ReefKeeper 1 (now known as the RK1) in 2004, they have gone on to create some of the most flexible, innovative and cost effective aquarium controllers on the market. The revolutionary ReefKeeper Elite (RKE) was unveiled in 2008 and the affordable ReefKeeper Lite (RKL) came out shortly thereafter to appeal to more budget-conscience aquarium hobbyists. In 2010, Digital Aquatics released a reptile version, the HerpKeeper, as well as the aptly named PondKeeper. ReefKeeper controllers simplify aquarium keeping duties by monitoring and controlling a variety of water parameters and equipment including but not limited to lighting, water flow, heating, cooling, pH and ORP.
