Feature list
Items to monitor:
All of the below items would have triggers associated with them that would generate an alert (emal or SMS) if a threshold is reached.

  • (2) DC voltages 24 V (or higher?)  What precision?

  • (3) temperature probes (ambient inside, outside, refrigerator) or more?

  • (1) AC mains voltage monitor

  • Lat/Lon of boat

  • (?) digital inputs for bilge pump cycling, refrigerator compress cycling, etc.

  • (4) GPIO that can drive a relay board to turn on peripherals such as Air Conditioning or Heat, bilge pump, lights, etc.
Seems like not many are interested but just having had a boat broken into at our club (all electronics stolen and lots of smashed lockers etc) I am interested (very).
Being able to set an alarm which can setoff sirens, lights etc and phone me to let me know there is a problem . Perhaps even film the perpetrators would be great


I live aboard all year round in Toronto, on Lake Ontario. In the winter managing power can be a challenge.
I am regularly using 80% of my 30 amp power load just to heat the boat, and invert power for the entertainment system. The problem comes in when I want to turn on the coffee maker, or use the toaster oven.
It would be awesome to have a power monitor that can prioritize power use so that when I turned on the coffee maker, that it would automatically turn off power to the water heater, and then I turn on the toaster oven, so it would turn off the lowest priority heater.

i have been working on same kinda thing with node red .
