Would like to know if users have had a good experience or what other alternative device to look at.
Welcome to the forum, Patolega.
We installed a similar device [cell data dependent] a couple of years ago and it paid for itself in the first year when our shore power cord shorted out
while we were away from the boat.
We went with the Siren Marine
offering, and it has been very reliable.
You didn't mention where your boat is located, but the Siren device is international and we pay a flat annual fee for unlimited messages anywhere there is cell service
. We routinely travel between Alaska
, and the transition between cell systems is flawless.
It is also remotely programmable, which is a nice feature so you can change things while away from the boat. We also like being able to turn on lights, and disconnect the main battery
bank remotely using our smart phones.
There are several offerings out there, but so far this one still seems to be keeping a slight edge.
If you are interested in more details, here is my post installation blog post
Best wishes finding what is right for you.
