The system is one of the few systems that has received FG approval from the insurance industry. Most insurance companies offer a discount on premiums and deductibles to boat owners with this device.
The discount is given because the system reduces the chance of damage and theft to the boat.
The system is totally waterproof. Even if the radio does not transmit underwater, the system continues to operate and runs normally afterwards.
Certification is done by a German laboratory where the system is lowered to a depth of 1m for 30 minutes.
The cables used are also tested and certified to IPx7.
To our knowledge, this is the only monitoring system for boats where the system with cables and connections is IPx7 protected and certified.
The electronics are protected with a layer of polymer. No production standards require this, but we see it as necessary for a product being used in a boat under harsh maritime conditions.
Protective coatings and design prevent moisture and other external elements - especially salt water and crystals - from impacting the electronics, such as scratching or corrosion.
Each input from the battery and bilge pump is protected against overvoltage and short circuit.
Continuous monitoring and 4G data communication with SmartBoat One cloud - consider this a mobile phone plan for your boat.
Operation and support of SmartBoat One
Free software update, both improvements and new functionality made possible by updating the software
Unlimited notification and alarms
Unlimited access and usage of data and app.
Free sharing and use of the app with others.
The SIM module is built-in and managed by Sensar Marine.
This ensures that there is ongoing communication between SmartBoat One and the SmartBoat Cloud
It gives us the opportunity to monitor that the communication is as it should be and troubleshoot if there should be any problems.
The system and communication between SmartBoat One and Smart Boat Cloud is secured and logged as expected with a security system
Solutions with SIM prepaid cards and twin cards have proven not to be suitable for use in a security system, and do not receive FG approval.
The prepaid card expires without either the customer or the provider of the service being notified.
Our 4G radio in the module is the same that used in Tesla's Model 3.
We support several telecom operators in each country we operate.
For Norway, this means that we use both Telenor and Telia's network. If we do not get coverage on one network, we automatically seek out other networks.
If the trip goes to Denmark or Sweden, we support several operators in those countries as well.
This ensures that our customers get the best coverage possible on the 4G network in each country.
Our battery cells are from Samsung - one of the most reputable suppliers of lithium cells and similar to that used in Tesla's battery pack.
Each battery is encapsulated in an aluminum sleeve, giving the electronics protection from over-supply of voltage or short circuiting.
The battery pack is then incased by a plastic housing for protection against moisture and corrosion.
The German TUV has certified the entire battery pack for use in the maritime environment.
All plastic used in the system is fire retardant - while more costly than ordinary plastic, we believe this is necessary for safe use in boats.
The plastic itself is certified and satisfies CE requirements for flammability
Our cables are "tinned" - this process protects the copper wires from corrosion. While this is costly, it is very necessary to ensure their durability in a maritime environment.
The wires themselves are 1.5mm2 - not because they draw a lot of power, but because thin wires are not suitable for use in boating electronics.
The cables must withstand salt water and be well protected against wear and tear. A frayed cable can cause major damage, including fire in a worst case scenario.
Inexpensive systems, that use thin cables that are neither suitable nor certified for use in boats.
The cable footing and connectors are designed to be robust. They will not be damaged when the nut is securely tightened. Additionally, these nuts are 3 times as strong as those you can buy in the hardware store, or a boat equipment store.
To connect to the bilge pump, we use an industrial connection from 3M. This is filled with silicone and which makes a waterproof connection between the wires.
Our water module is made exclusively of plastic with the electronics incased in plastic.
When we developed the SmartBoat One, we tested many designs over several seasons. Even the best materials with acid-resistant steel have problems in the Scandinavian climate when used in boats - with salt crystals being especially problematic.
Our final solution was to develop what has become a groundbreaking sensor - which has no exposed metals or moving components and uses very little power - to satisfy the requirements we set for measuring water in boats.
This also gave us the opportunity to add a temperature sensor in the water module to follow temperature in the keel and warn of frost and ice during the winter.
All data is stored continuously in the SmartBoat One cloud.
This means that all data is stored and ready for use in the cloud.
Should something unforeseen happen, the latest measurements are available.
Older systems only stored data locally, and one could risk not accessing critical information when it was most needed.
To create SmartBoat One, we have used modern technical solutions.
In addition to monitoring the boat, we monitor the system itself.
We are constantly improving the system and regularly upgrading the software with additional functionality.
Software upgrades happen automatically without our customers having to do anything.
The system is made with the future in mind.
Built into the system, there are future-oriented possibilities with expansion of wireless devices in addition to wired expansion.
Sensar Marine continues the development and has plans for further expansion of additional modules without having to replace the main unit.
