Bilge Alarms ~ Battery Sensors ~ Temperature Sensors
Most sailors have a bilge alarm system, but is it smart? Smart boat sensors such as smart bilge alarms, smart fire alarms/ heat sensors and smart battery sensors are new techology made possible by global mobile internet connectivity such as 3G, 4G. So called, Internet of Things (IoT) technology is a combination of sensors, software, and networks that makes it possible to monitor and control equipment remotely. These are perfect for boat owners when they leave their vessels as well as when in use.
Boat Owners are special; we know that right?
Our boats are also our homes, and very expensive to replace emotionally and financially. As sailors, we care very much about keeping our systems working, avoiding water inside the hull, and a fire would be one of the worst problems.
A sailor is no stranger to sensors for navigation and safety, but once the boat is moored systems are often switched-off, and hopeful thinking is switched-on. Thank goodness for these new devices which provide much needed assurance to protect these expensive assets.
