First Look: Dometic Marine Gateway
Dometic has entered the marine telematics market with its new Marine Gateway, delivering advanced monitoring, control, and vessel-security functions on or off the boat. Boaters can connect to their gateway using a mobile app to check the status of pumps, tank levels, battery charge and more. The gateway seamlessly integrates with Dometic’s DCM Digital Switching to offer mobile control of a wide variety of components and systems.
Using an array of available sensors, the gateway helps boaters secure their vessels against intrusion or theft. A special Security Loop can be connected to the gateway to secure outboard engines, multifunction displays, deck boxes and other valuable equipment.
The gateway’s built-in GNSS/GPS receiver provides position data for setting up precise geofence protection, alerting boaters if their vessel is moved or drags anchor. External GNSS and LTE antennas allow the gateway to be mounted in a variety of locations. Its internal backup battery keeps the unit working if power is cut.
The gateway initially will be installed by boat manufacturers; price will be determined by each builder. Beginning early next year, Dometic will offer global roaming LTE subscription options.
