Blue Guard launches a vessel monitoring and control system
Smart Skipper enables owners, operators and captains to monitor the safety of their unattended vessels
Blue Guard Innovations introduced Smart Skipper, a new vessel monitoring and control system that enables owners, operators and captains to monitor the safety of their unattended vessels.
Smart Skipper consists of Smart Mate devices and the Smart Skipper app.
Smart Mate devices use Bluetooth mesh technology that dramatically improves connectivity and ease of installation even in the most demanding marine environments.
Security features include geofence and unauthorized entry, fire detection, high water alarm, bilge pump activation and run time, remote control of lights, fans, pumps.
Once an alarm is triggered, all designated users receive real-time alerts via email, push notifications, and text messages.
The Smart Skipper system uses tablets and smartphones to connect to the Smart Mate device’s Bluetooth 5.0 mesh network. The collected information is then transmitted to the cloud via a cellular / mobile or Wi-Fi connection.
The use of a dedicated tablet or smartphone for the integrated display and monitoring with its ability to connect to the cloud ensures the longevity of the system for the user. With split-screen capability, the smart tablet can be used as a multifunctional device to display weather information, video streams, and navigation graphics.
