Maretron's SMS100 is a mobile or cellular modem that automatically sends text message alerts from your vessel to your phone. The SMS100 works together with Maretron's® dedicated displays (DSM Series) or N2KView® software to detect programmable alert conditions from sensors interconnected on an NMEA 2000® network. The displays or N2KView® software instruct the SMS100 to connect to the cellular network and transmit an alert message to selected telephone numbers. Whether it is high bilge water, low battery voltage, unplugged shore power, or an opened hatch or door, the SMS100 quickly alerts you to conditions onboard your vessel that require attention anywhere you have cellular network coverage.
You can also send a text message to your vessel and with the proper sensors installed, the SMS100 will respond with status information including the vessels position, bilge status, battery and shore power voltage, wind speed, inside and outside temperature.
Additionally, N2KView can be configured to respond to text messages with more complex sentences. You specify the text of the reponse message with parameters that are replaced dynamically by their values when the message is sent.
