The Sea-Tags wristbands are MOB alarm systems that continuously send a signal to one or more smartphones equipped with the Sea-Tags app. When a device is submerged in water, the communication is lost and all smartphones currently monitoring it will trigger an alarm and save the GPS position at the time of the incident.

Moreover, it is possible to configure the app in order to send a text message to an emergency contact (friend or family). If a MOB alarm is triggered, the smartphone left on board, will send a text message to the emergency contact with the GPS position of the boat when the signal was lost. The emergency contact can then start calling the Sea-tag user or contact emergency services and give them the last known GPS location.

After an alarm is triggered, the Sea-Tags app continuously displays the boat position, as well as the direction and distance that separates it from the point where the communication with the device was first lost.

The app also includes a manual MOB alert and allows the user to easily contact emergency services.

Modes of Operation:

Crew Mode: In crew mode, no mobile network (GSM) coverage is necessary. Monitor your crew and let your crew monitor you by connecting wristbands to all phones on board using the free Sea-Tags app. The Sea-Tags application displays the MOB’s position, the real-time position of the boat, and provides real-time updates of the heading and distance to retrieve the MOB.

Solo Mode: In solo mode, you will require mobile network (GSM) coverage to use the Sea-Tags application. In the event of a man overboard, your phone (left onboard) will send a text message (SMS) with the position and time of the event. The person on land can contact the authorities and communicate the last known GPS position of the MOB.

   

Compatible boats: Sea-Tags were developed for pleasure craft and can be used on boats up to 15 m long, due to the limitations of Bluetooth coverage to avoid false alarms. Sea-Tags are not for steel or carbon boats.

FAQs

Does the system work when the phone is in sleep mode?

For the system to work it is necessary to have installed and launched the app. When the phone is in sleep mode, if the application is on it will continue monitoring in the background. However, we recommend leaving the phone on for more security since some smartphone can kill background app to save battery life.


Do I need to be at least 100 m away from the boat to trigger a MOB alarm?

The range of the beacon is 100 m in an open environment but as soon as it is immersed the signal is blocked so you just need to put the bracelet underwater to trigger an alarm, no need to go a 100 meters away.
 

Do we need cell phone coverage to use the app?

Monitoring beacon is performed using Bluetooth and GPS network so no need for cell phone coverage. However, the SMS sending option can only be performed under GSM coverage with valid cell phone plan.

Does the beacon activates automatically when it touches the water?

The system does not turn on when it comes into contact with water, the bracelet emits a continuous signal which is blocked by water. So when the bracelet is immersed, it is as if it was off. It is a principle of positive security that limits failure problems and makes the system more secure.
 

How many beacons can we monitor with one phone?
