How it works

  • A person falls into the water and is able to get themselves back to the docks edge, right in front of them within easy reach is the Man Overboard Marina Alarm System, a pull on the marine grade rope will activate a local Dock Alarm.
  • The Dock Alarm emits a strobe light and siren. Alerting those in the immediate area and assisting to calm the victim knowing someone is aware of their plight.
  • Text messages, emails and an app notification are automatically sent out to up to 6 people that the marina has pre-programmed into their system, these could be Marina Management, staff, Liveaboards or security companies.
  • Monitoring then makes cascading phone calls to the marina contacts, if no one is able to investigate the alarm, monitoring will contact emergency services to request an investigation.

  • This alarm system aims in averting potential catastrophes. Our on-dock system is completely wireless and powered by renewable energy. The patented Man Overboard Dock Alarm has a heartbeat that signals every hour to tell us that the alarm system is live. And they are equipped with a duress button for any on-dock emergency requirements.

    We are pleased to say we have been testing in place at the Royal Melbourne Yacht Squadron for over 18 months and are ready to assist you in making your marina a safer marina.
