Project Description

SmartConnect Gateway

The Multitransceiver Gateway developed by BTESA  is a complete solution for real-time tracking, protection and communication for leisure yachts, but it can also be integrated via API into third-party solutions.

It provides seamless connectivity, for fixed or mobile environments, to report both position and long-range sensor data to the client server.

It is a hybrid GSM & Satellite communication tracker and the only one to offer this solution in its category.

The high accuracy GPS tracker reports continuously position, ground speed, head and time to the Microcomputer. Connectivity is granted by connecting to any 2G/4G Cellular network (multi-operator) – optimizing the data rate if an LTE-M / NB network is present – and, in case of loss of cellular coverage, switching to a low data rate / low consumption polar orbit Satellite network (Kineis/Argos), offering then worldwide coverage including the North and South Poles.

The Multitransceiver Gateway is not just a tracking unit, it also allows the connection of multiple wireless sensors such as: flood sensor, temperature and smoke sensor, PIR presence sensor, open door sensor, 220v shore power sensor, DC battery sensor, distress button. The LoRaWAN gateway (optional) provides a long-range (km range in free space) sensor network, connecting to any LoRaWAN compatible sensor

The sensors are registered via a webserver so they can be managed using any smartphone, tablet or PC.

It is also possible (optional) to connect a NMEA wireless module, allowing to receive alerts: Engine temp, wind speed, engine speed, depth under the boat and fuel level.

But that’s not all, you can activate the intruder alarm via your smartphone and set up an anchor watch (which sets up an alarm if the boat slips at anchor or if it leaves an area you have defined).

This Multitransceiver gateway is mounted in an IP65 enclosure with internal batteries and inbuilt charger. Its waterproof circular connector accepts 12V, 24 V and Solar Panel directly.

Finally, the Multitransceiver Tracking and Sensors Gateway also performs a WiFi hotspot allowing to manage everything with your Smartphone: sensors, alerts, the Anchor watch and (optionally) to use it as a router to have internet on board (4G network)
