Oakland Park, Florida – Edgewater Technologies, Inc., recognized as a leader in wireless anti-theft technologies, has teamed with Coastar Marketing, Inc. to help build a distribution network for its innovative onboard wireless security and monitoring systems.
“We’re proud to be able to bring this much needed technology to the marine marketplace” said Brad Good, Coastar President. “Safety and security of vessels has never been more important than now and with the unique wireless implementation of their Edgewater’s’ Marine Magellan™ product line, vessel owners and captains can be notified of not only vessel trespassing but also unexpected vessel movements. Various alarm data is sent via cell phone or satellite phone to virtually any other phone or phones via the onboard GSM SIM card. Alarm notifications can delivered as voice messages to other phones or may also be sent as text messages via EVDO to virtually any computer. ”
Unlike other security and monitoring systems that take terrestrial home alarm applications and try adapt them to marine applications, Magellan was designed from the waterline-up to work on boats. Including high-water sensors, GPS vessel tracking systems, and the ability to control up to 8 vessel functions remotely, such as turning on refrigeration and air conditioning systems and operating security lights and door locks make the Marine Magellan security and monitoring system specifically suited for the yacht and boat owner.
“Coastar Marketing brings a unique mix of sales and technical talent to our marine marketing efforts,” said Marc Curreri, Edgewater President. “With Coastar covering the major marine electronics dealers and yacht markets throughout the Southeast US, we expect to experience significant growth in a relatively short period of time.”
Not only does the Edgewater Technologies’ Marine Magellan system communicate with the outside world through wireless technology, the various alarm sensors and detectors also communicate with the central alarm controller wirelessly on the vessel through 433MhZ RF signal making installation super-simple with very few wires to run throughout the boat but Marine Magellan also uses rolling encoded frequency so the systems is always secure unto itself.
