Implement the Sense4Boat platform in your daily operations


Sense4Boat sensors do not connect to the boat network or power, making them independent and safe to install in any boat. They have their own replaceable batteries which last up to 5 years.


Sense4Boat sensors do not require a central unit to connect to. They operate independently, making them easy to install, change, and add new ones.
No new wires running through boats.


Each Sense4Boat sensor directly connects to the control center using a 0G network by Sigfox – a global IoT Network operator. The enables them to be independent, save power and be resistant to jamming.

Reduce risk of fire and freezing

Fire is usually spotted at a very late stage, at which it already had developed high temperatures and spread to the adjacent boats. Sense4Boat provides a sensor, resistant to high temperatures often found in engine rooms, which continuously monitors the smallest changes in the temperature and notifies the boat owner and the marina about sudden temperature changes, or extremely high temperatures. 

Detect smoke in boat cabins and reduce risk of fire

The battery-powered photoelectric smoke sensor is designed to protect boats from the dangers of smoke and fire.
Optimised for detecting slow smoldering fires which generate light smoke, little heat and may smolder for hours before bursting into flames. This sensors notifies the boat owner and the marina in case it detects smoke.
In addition to detecting smoke this sensor also monitors daily average temperature and humidity values.

Protect boats from sinking and water damage

Prevent water caused hazards with the Sense4Boat Smart Bilge sensor. The sensor is IP67 certified making it safe to install in the bilge. It comes with a practical float switch which can be installed in any bilge configuration, at a desired height.
When high water levels are detected, the sensor notifies the boat owner and the marina.

Prolong the life of customers’ batteries and know when they are plugged in to shore power

This sensor monitors the boat’s batteries and informs the marina what actions need to be taken in order to ensure proper maintenance. Deep discharging is the primary reason for a premature battery death. Know which boat owners need battery charing or replacement and offer this service to help them and increase your revenue.
