You can add the Remote Start Transmitter/Receiver package to your SWIMSTART or another electronic start and give your officials the freedom to focus on the race without worrying about wires.


Coaches love the Remote Start. They can activate the start tone from anywhere in the pool when teaching starts. Using the PA system to talk to swimmers allows them to communicate effectively without raising their voice.


IST uses 900 MHz technology to insure a fair start without interference from other wireless devices. You can select from 8 different channels to find one that doesn’t pick up stray signals in your facility. Our Remote Start Receiver will only react to the encoded start and voice signals sent by the Remote Start Transmitter. That makes it virtually impossible for the start to be tripped accidentally or for unintentional audio signals to be broadcast over the PA.


The SWIMSTART Remote Start gives you maximum flexibility. Put Receivers on two starts and you can trigger them both simultaneously with one Transmitter. Give a Transmitter to both the starter and referee, and either one can use the PA or send a recall signal. IST’s 5-year warranty means years of worry free use.
