FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA (USA) – Boat security systems supplier Global Ocean Security Technologies (GOST – formerly Paradox Marine) will feature its Magellan Insight GPS DVR and NT Evolution tracking and security systems at the 2011 Palm Beach International Boat Show, March 24-27 (Clematis Tent, booth 587).
Insight includes all the components necessary to help protect a boat and keep an eye on exactly what is happening onboard at all times. The system sends emails and text messages when events occur and saves a snapshot or video clip to the user’s account which is accessible on any computer or mobile phone with internet access. The owner sees what the camera sees when motion is detected and it also allows the owner to login and view streaming video off the boat on their computer or cell phone.
In addition, Insight notifies a boat owner or captain with a phone call if there’s high water in the bilge, low battery voltage, loss of shore power, smoke or intrusion. If the boat is moved without authorization or stolen, Insight will send emails or text messages every 15 minutes (programmable) with the vessel’s speed, heading, latitude and longitude.
Connected to the internet through a 3G GSM communication device, Insight provides complete access to a boat from any computer with internet access or through a web-enabled mobile phone. The system has complete GPS tracking through the Inmarsat IsatM2M network and will report alarm notifications from anywhere in the world. When in 3G range, Insight will report alarms with a voice message, and/or email and/or SMS text message and allow owners to view live video feeds off the boat. The system will also interface with onboard satellite equipment for global video streaming and two-way voice communication.
Owners and captains have a personalized, password-protected web page to view live streaming video from onboard cameras and archived footage from triggered events.
NT Evolution combines the GOST Nav-Tracker and Marine Magellan systems to provide boat security, monitoring and tracking in a single unit. It is a hybrid of the GOST Nav-Tracker and core Marine Magellan technology, making it the most sophisticated, all inclusive Nav-Tracker yet.
NT Evolution uses a third generation tracking website which incorporates an advanced Google Earth interface and uses the Inmarsat network of satellites for ultra reliability. It is the ideal solution for boats with limited living/ bunking space who want to bury the unit and strictly rely on key fobs.
An IP rated enclosure protects the GOST wireless technology at the core of the system. This allows the NT Evolution to use the extensive range of marine-rated wireless sensors for security and monitoring in combination with the GOST Nav-Tracker satellite tracking product line. The system can accommodate up to 32 wireless sensors, a hardwired zone input, 16 key fob remotes and up to 8 wireless relays which can control AC or DC functions onboard the vessel. The wireless relays can be used to flash the lights or sound a siren on alarm and can be controlled from the key fob remotes. For customers who keep their boat docked behind their house it is possible to tie one of the wireless relays into the house security system to set that off when the boat is being tampered with.
