The GSM Ship-to-Shore Monitoring & Alarm System that keeps you in touch
HarbourWatch is an essential tool for all Tugs and other Work Boats that are not manned 24 hours a day. It will monitor critical systems such as Bilge Water Level, Fire, Intruder, H2S Gas (or other gases) and Battery Voltage then text up to five different mobile numbers to alert duty holders when an alarm occurs. Alternatively, the duty holder can make spot checks on a vessel’s status by simply sending a message that initiates a live report.
When the vessel is manned, HarbourWatch performs the duty of an alarm panel. It can also integrate with existing monitoring systems.
Dual Band GSM. Setting up text messaging couldn’t be easier. The mobile phone numbers are stored in HarbourWatch during installation but can be amended at any time by simply sending a text message to the unit. To use the remote status check simply text STA
VESSELS NAME, BATTERY OK, BILGES OK, FIRE OK, INT OK. ASH
How much easier can it be to provide safe, round the clock monitoring of vessels without the high expense?
HarbourWatch is always on message.
Simplified System Overview
A console mounted version is available.
The touch screen HMI display indicates the Harbour- Watch alarm status and allows the operator to interrogate the system when the vessel is manned. From the HMI screen the alarm set-points, alarm text and message phone numbers can be changed subject to a security password being inserted. The HMI display can be fitted in the main Harbour- Watch enclosure or console mounted separately if required.
Remote Status Request
A remote status request can be obtained from the unit by sending a text message. The unit will send a text message back detailing the current status.
