Smart Home Meets Smart Boat - Why Remote Monitoring is the Next Big Thing

Whether it’s at the dock or on a mooring buoy, you've probably worried about your boat. Are my batteries charged? Is my bilge pump working hard? Has someone boarded my boat? The ability to remotely monitor your home is not a new concept, but the ability to remotely monitor your boat is. Join Brandon Wright, surveillance professional, as he talks about the latest 'smart boat' technology and how it will help relieve your boater's anxiety.


Brandon has over a decade of experience developing remote monitoring systems for both environmental monitoring and military surveillance as a Product Manager and Professional Engineer. He has designed and developed award-winning surveillance solutions that have been successfully installed throughout North America, the Middle East and Europe. He has also had the honour of presenting remote monitoring solutions to the retired US Secretary of Defense, the Assistant Chief of Staff of Qatar, and various four-star generals from the US, Israel, and Mexico. His passion for remote boat monitoring came about one cold January night, when he discovered that his boat had broken moorage and had run aground. Since then, he has been an innovator and pioneer in the smart boat field through his company, Barnacle Systems Inc.
