SEA-TAGS wristbands are man overboard alarm systems that continuously send a signal to smartphones equipped with it’s own app.
When a Sea-Tags device is submerged in water, the communication is lost and all smartphones currently monitoring the wristband will trigger an alarm and save the GPS position at the time of the incident.
It is also possible to configure the app to send a text message to an emergency contact. If a MOB alarm is triggered, the smartphone left on board will send a text to the emergency contact with the GPS position of the boat when the signal was lost. The emergency contact can then contact emergency services and give them the GPS location.
After an alarm is triggered, the 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.
In Crew Mode, no mobile network coverage is necessary. Monitor your crew and let your crew monitor you by connecting wristbands to all phones on board using the app. The Sea-Tags app 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.
Download the Sea-Tags app, pair your beacon using the QR code, start monitoring and you will be ready to hit the water.
