Re: Boat alarm - any recommendations?

As an alternative, with no monthly fees, we use a variety of sensors from Monitor and Find Everything from the Internet - Wireless Sensor Tags. We've used them successfully for several years. The additional sensors for our HVAC and freezer/fridge are great. They do require some kind of internet connection.

Gee...every time a harbour cat climbs aboard for a sniff around , your boat will erupt and disturb the whole dam neighborhood

In a lifetime on the water I have never had a theft or intruder

If you are worried about intruders you are either paranoid, have many enemies or you made a poor cruising area choice

Re: Boat alarm - any recommendations?

Hey -"Mr. know it all" - the question is meant to support a handicapped person so they may be alerted in the event of need. It's for boat and porch. Anyway, I'm not interested in you or your opinion. Cheers, Steve MorrisClick image for larger version

I use blink cameras hooked up to a straight talk wi fi hot spot.
The wi fi is $15 a month and the blinks are a great camera. They have movement sensor and notification when activated. You can also live feed camera, just to check the weather.

Re: Boat alarm - any recommendations?

Thank you as much appreciated. This seems reasonable with zero draw for boat and suitable for home. Appreciated and respected.

Re: Boat alarm - any recommendations?

I power the wi fi with a USB in a 12v receptacle and the blinks run on battery which lasts months.
I have this system on my boat on mooring and one in storage , I love the set up.
The straight talk wi fi is $15 a month for a gig.
The blinks are great, there's a lot of adjustment with sensitivity remotely.
I hope this helps
