Siren Marine and Morey Partner for Connected Boats
19 December 2016 - IoT hardware solutions provider Morey announced today it has been named the hardware partner for Siren Marine’s next-generation boat monitoring, tracking and security product. Designed by boaters, for boaters, Siren Marine’s suite of monitoring products allow boat owners, fleet operators and boat builders to track a boat’s location, receive alerts when critical events occur, access engine metrics and control onboard devices remotely.
“The Siren Marine team has been working nonstop to introduce a new, IoT-enabled monitoring and tracking solution for boaters,” said Siren Marine Founder and CEO Dan Harper (above), who spent more than 20 years as a professional yacht captain. “As pioneers of the ‘Connected Boat,’ Siren Marine is revolutionizing the boat ownership experience by providing boat owners with remote access to critical and timely information about their boats. Our goal at Siren Marine is to bring boaters peace of mind and more time on the water.”
Siren Marine’s monitoring device connects to sensors around the boat and sends alerts to phones, tablets or computers when critical conditions occur, such as water in the bilge, high/low temperature and unauthorized access to name a few. Onboard devices, including lights or air conditioning can be controlled remotely; and the built-in GPS tracks the position and movement of the vessel. New features include wireless sensors, fleet management, video capture, satellite connectivity, and a National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) interface.
Morey is supporting the project through design engineering, production readiness and manufacturing services to bring prototype product designs to market via its innovation center and manufacturing facility in suburban Chicago. The ruggedized hardware and GPS technologies will work together to reliably analyze and transmit data to a user’s mobile application to provide security, protect the owner’s investment and protect passengers.
“Morey stands on the promise of bringing innovation to industry and this product line is going to revolutionize the boating experience,” said Morey President Dana Morey (left). “We find it incredibly rewarding to partner with Siren Marine, combining their first-in-market technology offering with our 20 years of wireless hardware expertise.”
