GOST just launched a new, cutting-edge touchscreen monitoring and security system so you can know what’s going on inside and outside your boat, called Apparition. You control it with interactive 5- and 7-inch touchscreen keypads installed throughout the boat, as well as through an app that works with smartphones and tablets.
You can install as many as 16 Apparition touchscreens throughout the boat and they work with up to 192 sensors, monitoring everything from a locked liquor cabinet or the door to a guest cabin to high-water alarms in the engine room.
When an alarm sounds, you touch the flashing icon on the screen and you can see the exact location of the alarm and identify the problem. It can be set to access control for up to 32 external and internal doors and hatches. And you can install up to 32 wireless sensors in the engine room, to alert you to high water, low voltage and heat and smoke problems. Apparition also monitors shore power.
The basic price for GOST Apparition is $3,000, but it varies according to the number of sensors and features, which can include GPS tracking, video backup systems and live HD camera feeds. For more:
