Installation of "Boat Keeper"
security and control system
the installation you need to find an optimal location
for the main box, door sensor and water sensor. The main
box has a built in antennas and should be located in any
area with good reception, not covered by metal screens
or walls and held above the outside water level.
Non-metal constructions are not a real obstacle for
airwaves and do not reduce reception for GPS and GSM
networks. The suitable location could be found by using
an ordinary mobile phone and viewing the level of
reception on the mobile phone screen and GPS
functionality. External GSM and GPS antennas can be
connected to SMA socket on the main board, instead of
internal antennas. The main box can be mounted by four
screws on a wall or by any other safety methods (glue,
cable tie) in a reachable place for visual control and
manageability. The water level sensor can be fixed in an
expected water level area. The area should be protected
from mechanical damage. Usually, these sensors mounted
under the boats floor in the lowest section. The
magnetic door sensor consists of two parts. First part
is the wired switch which can be fixed on a wing of a
door or on any other places that is located near a
sliding or an opening door. The second part of the door
sensor has a magnet inside and does not require any
connection. This part should be mounted on a sliding or
an opening door. For stable control of a shut door, the
distance between two parts of the door sensor should be
close as possible and not more than 14 mm.
More attention is needed to provide for cabling between
the sensors and main control box. All wires need to be
protected from mechanical damages and salt water.
