A lot of security alarms claiming to be for use on a watercraft are in fact a modified car or home alarm, so it's critcal to search out a dedictated marine system that's able to cope in the often punishing conditions at sea.
Boat alarm systems -
The BoatNanny™ is a boat security monitoring system offering a wireless plug n' go capabilities, all with ease in set-up and installation - expect the alarm to be set-up and monitoring a vessel in 30 minutes or less.
If the alarm is activated (as a result of high water, motion or audio levels, or temperature in cabin or engine room) its able to send a message to a portable device, such as a cell phone, PDA, or laptop computer. The boat nanny is able to communicate to all locations with cell phone coverage.
The temperature sensor is pre-set to monitor a high and low threshold in the engine room, a bilge water height sensor is able to detect water entering a vessel, and an optional siren, with a ear-piecing 117 dB alarm and strobe light is able to detect motion on a boat.
