Affordable Vessel Security Aug 3, 2019

The Innovative ZigBoat™ from Glomex Marine Antennas provides owners access to critical vessel information when away. It delivers notifications without fees, cloud service subscriptions, registrations or privacy policy agreements.

The heart of the Glomex ZigBoat system is the Gateway core module. It doesn’t need wiring or drilling holes, so installation couldn’t be easier; all that’s needed is a 12-24VDC power supply. At only 4” L x 4” W x 1.1” H, it can be tucked away in any centralized, protected space. The PRO version of the Gateway has an inbuilt GSM/3G module, external SIM card slot and four-hour battery backup.

Each wireless ZigBoat sensor has a unique QR code that’s scanned using the free mobile app to connect it to the Gateway, making it truly plug-and-play. They’re placed throughout the vessel as needed. Due to Zigbee® technology, they’ll run for 3–5 years on standard alkaline batteries.

There’s no limit to the number of ZigBoat sensors the system will accommodate and a wide range are offered. Completely scalable, they’re added as needed and can easily be moved to another vessel. The standard ZigBoat kit includes Battery, Flood and Porthole/Door sensors. The PRO kit adds CamBoat, a wireless video surveillance camera. Optional ZigBoat sensors include Heat, Smoke, Motion and GPS Tracking with Geofencing. CamBoat can be added to the standard kit or for multiple camera applications.

Using the Android or iOS ZigBoat app is simple. It has an intuitive dashboard that delivers 24/7 access to all monitored systems. Real-time push notifications can be sent on the starter kit and the PRO kit can send SMS alerts when critical events occur.
