Remote Monitoring system

Just curious if anyone here uses a boat monitoring system on their boat. Ours is unattended at the marina for several months at a time and we are looking into getting some sort of system to keep an eye on her. Been looking pretty hard at BoatCommand. Any thoughts as to this one or any others that work well.

Thanks in advance
Money can't buy happiness, but you can buy a boat and it's pretty much the same thing......

Re: Remote Monitoring system

We've been using these wireless tags for about 6 months. We monitor intrusion detection, bilge pump failure (high water), along with temperatures for interior, HVAC outputs, engine and generator exhaust, and fridge and freezer temps. You can also monitor motion, and there is a tie in to many network controlled devices. It requires an Internet connection. There is NO monthly fee. Setup is in seconds.

I can tell you that when the companionway is opened, I get an immediate notification.
