A Florida marine air conditioning manufacturer, Flagship Marine, Inc. has diversified into manufacturing marine high water bilge alarms and most recently quite innovative marine security systems. A new patented wireless technology known as "Cellemetry" uses a secure, digital part of the existing cellular network to communicate with your choice of central stations for around the clock monitoring.
Now you can have a central station company call you at your home or office should your boat be taking on water or if it burglarized at the dock or at anchor! Although the alarm was designed to be a stand alone 12 volt device, it can be interfaced with this cellular digital communicator as well as almost every central stations' hard wired computers. False alarms, the biggest difficulty with marine alarm systems in the past, have been almost eliminated by using dual technology motion detectors.
Utilizing the Doppler effect, the microwave side of this detector senses motion by analyzing the echo from a tiny microwave transmitter, while the traditional passive infrared motion detector side of the detector senses a warm moving body. Both sides of this detector must be triggered simultaneously to transmit an alarm state. After Flagship Marine's owner suffered a $28,000 loss due to a partial sinking from an electrolysis problem, and had to fight his insurance company for six months to get the loss covered, he developed a bilge alarm, the Flagship Sentry.
