Prevent damage and improve the safety of your boat
Your boat spends most of the time in the 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 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.

Smart sensors for smart boaters
We are using the cutting-edge Internet-of-Things (IoT) technology to monitor all the vital parameters of your boat and to detect potential threats long before they become a real hazard. When an alert is generated, you will receive a voice call with a detailed description of the hazard, as well as an email, SMS and push notification.
Smart Battery monitor
This sensor monitors your batteries and informs you of all actions to be taken to properly maintain your batteries. This affordable sensor will inform you when to recharge your batteries to prevent battery damage from sulfation or even deep discharge. The life expectancy of your battery can be significantly extended with this smart sensor. Read more about battery maintenance…
Smart bilge sensor
The bilge sensor detects water intrusion in the boat’s bilge and allows you to protect the boat not just from sinking, but also from the mold that occurs due to stale rainwater in the boat. The sensor will also warn you of a freezing hazard.
Smart smoke detector
This sensor will warn you if smoke is detected in you cabin, indicating a potential fire threat. This simple and inexpensive sensor can prevent enormous damage not only on your boat, but on nearby boats as well.
Smart heat sensor
Prevention of fire on a boat stored/docked in the marina is a very demanding challenge. The fire is usually spotted at a very late stage, at which it already had developed high temperatures and spread to the adjacent boats. The sensor can prevent freezing as well.
In the cooperation with SimpleHW, a leading hardware producers in the Sigfox technology we designed a special sensor which continously monitors the temperature (every 6 sec) and detects the smallest change in the temperature. Every temperature difference of 3°C is send and processed in the cloud.
No central unit
We use cutting-edge IoT technology. Each of our sensors is directly connected to the Internet so there is no need for an expensive and complicated central unit.
Easy to install and configure
Choose the sensors you want, install them in your boat and within only a few minutes, you can start monitoring your boat!
Autonomous wireless sensor
Powered by internal batteries, no connection to boat’s electrical wiring. The sensors do not drain your boat’s batteries.
No SIM, no roaming
We are using Sigfox, the world’s largest IoT network. No SIM cards are required, only a moderate annual subscription starting from 60€ / year. Please check the signal coverage at https://www.sigfox.com/en/coverage
Free mobile application for boat owners
Monitor all the sensors and check all the measurements collected from the various sensors anytime, anywhere with our mobile application.
If an alert requires your attention or action, you will be notified via the mobile application, email and voice call. Log all alerts and warnings generated by those sensors.
Our system works best connected to your home marina
Connect your sensors to your home marina*, so that all alerts, warnings and measurements can be forwarded to your home marina as well. Your marina can take actions to protect your valuable boat and provide you with better service (battery maintenance, docking assistance, boat care).
* Works only in marinas ready and willing to provide this service.

I would like to tell you about my experience 1 month after installing my SENSE4BOAT sensors. I am very satisfied with the sensors, the installation was child’s play to do, since the sensors need no power supply from the outside, no cables were necessary for the installation. The battery sensors are just great, I can see from home whether my batteries are charged and in what condition they are. The bilge sensor and fire detector are also great safety features for my boat. Should something really happen, the marina can provide immediate help and keep the damage in check. I’m happy to find such a great product in the marina, keep it up. A very successful product, which I can only recommend to every boater.
In the middle of July 2019 I had sensors for bilge and fire as well as battery monitoring installed on my boat.
As an electrician, I know how dangerous, for example, a cell defect can be on a battery. It creates very high heat, mostly in the charging process. That is, in my opinion, the most common cause of boat fires. The monitoring line of the fire sensor passes over the batteries, charger and the controls of the boat. The line triggers an alarm when exceeding 105 degrees Celsius. I myself had a problem with the battery charge before. The battery got so hot that the wood panel was lightly burned. The sensor in the bilge gives the warning when water enters the engine room. The batteries voltage monitoring has really been worth it for me. Not only that I am constantly informed about the state of charge, but I was able to detect errors in the installation in a short time by looking at the diagrams of the discharge.
I am very happy with the sensors and my boat is safe even when I am not on board.
