Make no compromise with the safety of your boat
Boats spend most of their time in their home marina. During these long storage periods, boats are exposed to aggressive conditions (corrosion, galvanic currents, etc.) which may have a serious impact on their safety. Sense4Boat is an innovative and award-winning system which combines modern technology and our lasting experience in the marina industry to ensure the maximum safety of every boat during the long storage periods in the marina.
Monitoring your boat 24/7
We are using the cutting-edge Internet-of-Things (IoT) technology to monitor all the vital parameters of your boat. We can detect potential threats for your boat long before they become a real hazard. As a boat owner, you can now equip your vessel with our sensors which can sense the presence of the water, detect smoke/heat in the cabin or simply monitor your batteries. If any of the measurements should raise any concern, the system will automatically alert you as an owner, but even more importantly, it can notify your home marina. Based on those warnings, the marina staff can take appropriate actions to save your property.
This smart sensor will detect the most important safety hazards to your boat: fire and water intrustion. In order to detect fire, we use the patented technology of the US-based manufacturer Protectowire, developed specifically to detect fires in the most demanding conditions, such as aeroplanes, industrial plants, power plants, oil rigs etc.
This sensor monitors your batteries and provides you with all the relevant information and informs you of actions to be taken, such as when to recharge your batteries or whether there is a sudden voltage drop due to a potential short circuit. The battery life expectancy can be significantly extended with our sensors and proper maintenance (up to 10 years).
This sensor will warn you if smoke or heat are detected in you cabin, indicating a potential fire threat. You will be notified, but more importantly your home marina can also be notified immediately. This simple and inexpensive sensor can prevent enormous damage not only on your boat, but on nearby boats as well.
Starting from only 60€ per year
Now you can monitor your boat 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year for a negligible fee. All sensors can be purchased separately, and you can buy additional sensors anytime and add them seamlessly to you existing system.
Mobile application for boat owners
The Proactive Boat Care mobile application displays all data and information collected from different sources in a simple and structured form. Within seconds, you can see the latest photo of your boat, an inspection log from the marina with the list of marina employees who checked your boat and potentially carried out activities required to protect your property. You can instantly check all the measurements collected from the various sensors you installed on your boat as well as possible alerts or warnings generated by those sensors.
The latest photo taken during the visual inspection is displayed in high quality.
An inspection log for the last 7 days, displaying the list of marina employees who checked your boat and potentially carried out activities required to protect your property.
Measurements from all the installed sensors are displayed in simple form. You can click on the measurements for more information.
If an alert requires the owner’s attention or action, they will be notified via the mobile application and email. The marina will be notified as well.
Our system works best connected to your home marina
If your home marina is not equipped with our software yet, and you as a marina customer want to have the all the benefits described above, please recommend us to your home marina. If your home marina upgrades to our Proactive Boat Care software based on your recommendation, we will provide you with a 50 % discount on our sensors for the first contract year!
We can significantly extend the life expectancy of your batteries
Batteries are generally supposed to last at least 7-10 years according to the manufacturers’ specifications. However, due to improper maintenance, batteries usually last 3-4 years. Most boat owners are not aware that batteries discharge on their own at a rate of up to 5 % per month. If you do not charge your batteries immediately, sulfation occurs and your battery permanently lose some of its capacity.
The ideal battery maintenance would be to have a permanent shore supply and modern battery charger which has the functionality to continuously charge the batteries (float mode). However, a permanent shore supply is not allowed in most marinas due to the fire & safety regulations. Permanent shore supply is also very problematic because of a significant increase in galvanic currents (a closed electrical circuit through the common ground wire with the marina).
Therefore, the only workable solution is to receive the information on when to recharge the batteries and to recharge them properly either by yourself, by your marina staff or by subcontractors. Our system will notify you when to recharge you batteries to prevent damages from sulfatization.
Our satisfied customers
Since our recent introduction we are getting more and more satisfied customers every day. Please read some of their testimonials below…
I left the main switch of my batteries on, and the voltage of my batteries dropped within hours to levels which might have damaged my batteries. Luckily, I got a low battery warning from Proactive Boat Care and saved my batteries.
I had a hunch that my left engine battery was reaching its end, but no measurements to prove it. It is very difficult to determine when the battery needs to be replaced if you don’t have proper measurements. Thanks to the battery monitoring sensor I got a warning to replace the damaged battery.
