Every year we hear of boats sinking, catching fire, having cold conditions freeze the onboard water supply, or being broken in to. Most of these happen at the dock, while the vessel is unattended. While adding vessel monitoring equipment and door alarms can detect these problems, they do not solve the problem of informing you that there is a problem if you are not on board (or at least close by). Adding a Maretron® SMS100 text module to your vessel gives an inexpensive method of sending text messages to your phone when there is a problem.

This intermediate remote monitoring system will monitor important parameters on your vessel and alert you via text message when there is water in your bilge, a fire onboard, doors opened, loss of shore power or battery power, or your boat moves from its moorings. While on board, all these parameters can be displayed on the sunlight readable display.

The following table shows the products included within this example system plus a list of the information or data available for display.
