Siren Marine has introduced a new wireless sensor and starter kit making it easier for boaters to set up boat monitoring and tracking systems.
The company's new custom-designed wireless sensors are purpose built for the marine environment.
The five new wireless sensors – High-Water Sensor, Bilge Pump Sensor, Battery Voltage Sensor, Entry Sensor and Temperature Sensor – connect to the Siren Marine's MTC Boat Monitoring and Tracking system without a hard-wire connection, making it easier for boat owners to access onboard information – right from a phone, tablet or computer.
Using the Siren Marine App, users get instant alerts and can monitor their boat in real time. The new wireless sensors are a breeze to configure and can be installed on any size and type of boat, without the need to drill holes or run wires through crowded rigging tubes.
The sensors are IP67 waterproof rated for use above or below decks and are designed to complement any vessel’s aesthetics.
For practical performance aboard today’s high-tech vessels, the wireless sensors offer long battery life (up to 2 years) and use a sub-gigahertz frequency that is perfectly suited for penetrating through bulkheads and communicating over long distances (up to 200 feet).
Each wireless sensor package includes a wireless module, an interchangeable sensor “tail," mounting bracket, and a replaceable coin-cell battery.
To help boaters create their own “Connected Boat," Siren Marine has launched of the MTC+2 Starter Kit, which includes an MTC Boat Monitoring and Tracking System, and two wireless sensors that monitor battery voltage, high water or unauthorized entry.
“At Siren Marine, we are fundamentally changing and improving the boat ownership experience,” said Daniel Harper, founder and CEO. “Our easy-to-install and fully-customizable system helps eliminate worry, reduces downtime, and saves on insurance, while giving boat owners the peace of mind that their boat is safe, secure and ready to enjoy.”
