Easy wiring access and configuration are at the heart of the Guardian®, the latest independent system from PedSafety. This complete MUTCD, ADA, PROWAG, and TAC-compliant Accessible Pedestrian Signal (APS) solution has a simple and flexible configuration and delivers safety, simplicity, reliability, and cost-effectiveness at any intersection.

The Guardian is a cabinet-free, completely independent pedestrian system as a testament to its simplicity. Encompassing everything agencies know and trust about PedSafety APS devices, the Guardian® offers greater sound quality and control and provides an ambient gain compensation locator tone, extended press options, vibrotactile walk indications, and optional clearance phase indications; all adjustments and settings can be made at the pedestrian station via USB connection or Bluetooth® through the PedConnex® utility.


The Guardian is an independent 4-wire system that allows for true plug-and-play installation. Our programming utility, PedConnex®, is a straightforward and user-friendly way to customize and program each station at the intersection. In addition to enhanced usability and a new, more vandal-resistant body style, the Guardian® comes with all of the same AGPS hallmarks that agencies that countries all over the Western Hemisphere have come to know and trust. You can expect improved sound quality, locator tones, customizable verbal messaging, vibrotactile actuation acknowledgment, and a host of other features designed to fit your needs.
