FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA (USA) – A GOST™ (Global Ocean Security Technologies – formerly Paradox Marine) NT Evolution boat security, monitoring and tracking system stopped would-be boat thieves from making off with a 33’ Contender in greater Miami, Florida early Sunday morning, July 3. NT Evolution combines the GOST Nav-Tracker and Marine Magellan systems to provide boat security, monitoring and tracking in a single unit.
The Contender was in its slip when thieves attempted to steal it. They were stopped when the NT Evolution system’s audio and visual alarms sensed the intrusion, activated the siren and strobe light and alerted all of its contacts by text and email within 30 seconds of the event via the Inmarsat two-way tracking system.
The owners’ previous boat was stolen from the same slip a year earlier, causing the family to miss out on the entire summer season. "Summers are a precious thing for me and my family, to lose all last season was devastating. I knew that I needed to defend my new boat this year and that is exactly what the NT Evolution did. It prevented another theft,” said the owner, who requested anonymity for this story.
NT Evolution is a hybrid of the GOST Nav-Tracker and core Marine Magellan technology, making it the most sophisticated, all inclusive Nav-Tracker yet.
NT Evolution uses a third generation tracking website which incorporates an advanced Google Earth interface and uses the Inmarsat network of satellites for ultra reliability. It is the ideal solution for boats with limited living/ bunking space who want to bury the unit and strictly rely on key fobs.
An IP rated enclosure protects the GOST wireless technology at the core of the system. This allows the NT Evolution to use the extensive range of marine-rated wireless sensors for security and monitoring in combination with the GOST Nav-Tracker satellite tracking product line. The system can accommodate up to 32 wireless sensors, a hardwired zone input, 16 key fob remotes and up to 8 wireless relays which can control AC or DC functions onboard the vessel. The wireless relays can be used to flash the lights or sound a siren on alarm and can be controlled from the key fob remotes. For customers who keep their boat docked behind their house it is possible to tie one of the wireless relays into the house security system to set that off when the boat is being tampered with.
The GOST NT Evolution Package includes the GOST NT Evolution control unit with built in Marine Magellan core technology, 2 key fob remote controls, the antenna, a 30 ft antenna cable, a 6 foot power cable and covert antenna mounting bracket.
