The BoatNanny™ comes standard with one Base Unit and one Remote Unit. Each unit has its own sensors and can be accessed by your cell phone. Below is a list of the sensors, what their function are and where they are located.

Base UnitBase Unit:

  • Temperature Sensor - The temperature sensor monitors the temperature in the boat cabin. You can set the low and high temperature thresholds. If the temperature goes above or below the threshold, you will be notified. For example, if the heat in the boat fails and the temperature falls below the threshold, an alarm message will be sent.

  • Motion Sensor - The motion sensor points toward the entrance of the cabin. If someone were to enter the boat, it would trip the motion sensor and notify the customer. The motion sensor selected is a highly accurate sensor that activates only when someone enters the detection zone. It is not activated by the boat rocking, or from curtains moving, etc.

  • AC/DC loss of power - The BoatNanny™ sends an alarm message to the customer if there is a loss of either AC or DC power. For instance, if your ship-to-shore power becomes unplugged, or if your 12V battery becomes discharged, the BoatNanny™ will alert you.

  • Smoke Detector - The BoatNanny™ monitors existing smoke/fire alarm and sends an alarm message when smoke or fire is in cabin.

  • Audio Microphone - Simply call The BoatNanny™ and you can listen-in to the activities and audio levels within the cabin.



Remote Unit

Remote Unit:

  • Temperature Sensor - The temperature sensor in the Remote Unit monitors the temperature in the engine room. This also has a high and low threshold. Overheating of the engine or icing of water in the engine room are examples of when the BoatNanny™ would alert you.

  • Bilge Water height -- The Remote Unit can be connected to a wide variety of float switches or water sensors. As soon as water either trips the float switch or water rises to the water sensor, the BoatNanny™ will alert the customer that there is water entering the boat.

  • Siren
    If a motion is detected in your boat, TheBoatNanny™ has the ability to connect to a siren.
