The Smart Skipper™ system utilizes the most prolific technology in the world, smart tablets and smart phones to connect to the Smart Mate device’s Bluetooth 5.0 mesh network. The smart tablet then transmits the gathered information to the cloud using a cellular/mobile or Wi-Fi connection.

Using a dedicated smart tablet or phone for the on board display and monitoring with their ability to connect to the cloud ensures the user of the system’s longevity.
