Your remote boat monitoring device must be installed by a qualified marine engineer. Three pairs of wires from the device will be connected to the boat’s wiring loom, with two more additional wires available if you want to use the remote switching option.
Qualified Installer Instructions can be found on our installation page.
You should ensure that the remote boat monitoring device is installed somewhere on the boat that can receive signal from the mobile network. Avoid installing in areas that could get wet.
SMART 1+ monitors the electrical supply from the battery that powers the bilge pump circuit. On most boats, this circuit is always live. If your batteries are connected in a series, the charge on the circuit monitored by SMART +1 represents the charge on all batteries in that series.
No. Air conditioning only works on a 220 / 240v circuit and SMART +1 must not be used to power up any circuit with that level of voltage, it should be limited to 12v / 24v circuits.
Yes, provided that the system is connected to the network and there is sufficient credit on the SIM card.
SMART1+ will send an SMS alert when a trigger, within the design parameters, is detected. However, there is no guarantee that SMART1+ will be connected to the network at the time the text is generated and receipt by your phone is dependent on network connectivity. SMART 1+ is not capable of detecting a network outage, and will not resend a text alert if it was not connected to the network at the time of the trigger.
Note that SMART 1+ must be disabled before sailing away from the marina. Please also bear in mind the following considerations:
Yes. You can disable or enable the intruder alert function whenever it suits you.
In testing, multiple alerts indicated a problem with the system to which SMART1+ was connected a stuck bilge float switch or a faulty battery charger, If you are receiving multiple alerts, you should consider sending a “disable” command until the cause is determined.
SMART 1+ can be installed on both sail and power boats.
No. SMART 1+ will work on a boat of any size.
The box measures 120mm x 94mm x 37mm, although the length increases to 140mm when you include grommet and trailing wires.
Yes. The main unit and cabling weights less than 250 grams and does not contain any batteries.
No. However, please note that the SMART 1+ should be disabled before sailing away from a marina.
No. When developing SMART 1+, we found that the ongoing cost of a monthly contract was not attractive, especially for a system that will, hopefully, send very few texts. Instead, we have included a pay-as-you go SIM card within the remote boat monitoring device that is pre-loaded with credit.
No. If you open the unit, your warranty will be invalidated.
SMART 1+ is supplied with an information card from our telecoms partner. You must enter a separate pay-as-you-go contract with our telecoms partner to maintain credit on your SIM.
