Siren Marine has added important features and functionality to its MTC Boat Monitoring and Tracking system, making it even easier for boat owners to create their own Connected Boat™ and access onboard information – right from a phone, tablet or computer.
Siren Marine’s new custom-designed wireless sensors are compact, attractive, quick to install, and 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 MTC without a hard-wire connection. 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. Boaters will have the flexibility to easily customize the system for their boat and boating lifestyle — while enjoying nearly limitless expandability.
Siren Marine engineered its proprietary wireless sensors to withstand the harsh marine environment and perform in real-world conditions. These compact sensors are IP67 waterproof rated for use above or below decks and are stylishly 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 ft). 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 is pleased to announce the launch 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. The MTC+2 will be available for sale on March 1, 2018, with a MRP of $799, and an annual subscription of $180 or a monthly subscription of $17.97. The MTC+2 can be easily expanded with additional wired or wireless sensors.
“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.”
