Introduction This User’s Manual is about the daily use of the SuperSail Alarm System. The system consist of GPS Trackers used for alarm systems and for data collection. Data are stored on a central hosted server and a mobile application (App) for accessing the trackers. The SuperSail mobile App is available for iOS (AppStore) and for Android (Google Play). SuperSail Marine Alarm is developed for fixed mounting in dry environment inside a larger boat. The SuperSail Marine Alarm must be connected to external power supply and the antenna must be placed where the best signal is achieved. Alarm sensors can be connected wired or wireless. A small internal battery ensures that the alarm continues operation if external power is interrupted.

The SuperSail Alarms are available in the following configurations: •

SuperSail Marine Alarm is a complete alarm with all alarm features except for the possibility of connecting wireless sensors. The alarm has 1 (optional 2) outputs which can be controlled automatically by the alarm (e.g. for connecting a siren) og manually via the app. Further it has 1 (optional 2) inputs for connecting e.g. an outboard engine or a wired sensor.



SuperSail Marine Alarm Wireless is the extended version of the above with full integration of up to 50 wireless sensors and up to 8 cameras.

The system is operated via your Smartphone.

Alarm Status Menu

From the main menu it’s possible to monitor your alarm status, by selecting the ”Alarm Status” button. Pushing the “Back” button returns to the main menu without changing tracker settings. At the bottom you find the ”Reset Alarm” button, which executes a hard reset of the alarm. This is done by sending a SMS to the alarm forcing it to reset and restart. Your settings are NOT affected. The boat name can be changed by selecting the field. When the field is selected, the keyboard is automatically displayed. The boat name is used to identify the tracker in SMS’s and regatta data. The Signal levels shows the actual measured GPS and GSM signals. When entering the menu, the fields will show “Measuring” for 15 seconds and then be blanked until the actual measured levels are reported by the alarm – this can take up to 30 seconds. Selecting the Alarm ID field, shows a list of all trackers for which you are allowed as user. If the alarm you search for is not found, contact your System Administrator or [email protected], who can help to create you as user for a specific tracker. Battery level for the boat battery is shown in the External Battery field, and the battery level for the internal backup battery in the alarm is shown in the Internal Battery field. The Internal battery level is divided into steps of 20%, where the level of the internal battery is considered critical if it drops below 20%.

Alarm Settings Menu

From the main menu it’s possible to activate alarms that monitor your boat even during your sailing or when you leave your boat, by pushing the button “Alarm Settings”. This function is intended for sailors who wants to ensure that their boat is not been robbed or stolen. Furthermore water intrusion or fire can be monitored by connected sensors. It’s also possible to turn on/off external units like e.g. the heater. Pushing the “Back” button returns to the main menu without activating the alarm. The alarm function is turned on/off independent of other functions, which enables you to use the alarm even if you are sailing. The alarm functions are a safety for you and your boat, where up to 4 mobile numbers can receive messages in case of alarms. Your personal password can be changed in the “User Settings” menu.

5.1

Functions The Alarm Menu contains the following functions: • • • • • • • • •

5.2

Camera Setting, which opens the Camera Setting window Input alarms that can be activated individually Monitoring of maximum movement – e.g. theft or anchor guard Monitoring of 12V or 24V Monitoring of maximum speed Monitoring of maximum distance Chock Sensor which monitor e.g. grounding, hitting the jetty, while moored or collision Temperature alarm if a temperature sensor is connected Wireless Sensors which can be activated individually

Inputs

SuperSail Marine Alarm has 1 (optional 2) configurable input. To the inputs external sensors like e.g. a smoke alarm or float switch can be connected, or a wire to an outboard engine can be connected for monitoring this. In the text field you can write a text that identifies the connected units. Same text is included in the SMS alarm text.

5.3

Maximum Movement

Maximum Movement Alarm with configurable alarm distance, which functions like a GPS fence. The function can be used as a theft monitoring or as an anchor guard.

Page 8 of 14

User’s Manual The figure shows the principal in the maximum movement alarm, where the boat are in the center of a circle indicating the maximum movement before the alarm is activated. A GPS which is steady will register some movement in all directions, caused by reflected signals from the satellites. Reflections occur when the signal from the satellite hits something in the way to the tracker. Even that the GPS in the tracker is very precise, reflected signals will be received from time to time, which gives the tracker a wrong position for the boat. To prevent wrong positions from activating a false alarm, it is recommended to set the Maximum Movement distance to minimum 25-35 meters. Our experience is that this value prevents most false alarms in most harbors. If the boat is placed near buildings or other constructions creating reflections, it might be necessary to set a higher value for the Maximum Movement alarm. It is recommended to test the value for some days to ensure that no false alarm are sent due to reflections form the surrounding environment.

5.4

12V or 24V Monitoring

Monitors if external 12V supply is interrupted or drops below 10,5V, or if 24V supply drops below 21V.

5.5

Maximum Distance

Same function as described for Maximum Movement paragraph 5.3. Typically used by charter boat companies or if your boat is being used by others than yourself. You can receive an alarm if the boat comes too far from the starting point.

5.6

Maximum Speed

Maximum speed with a configurable maximum speed in the unit of knots. Typically used by charter boat companies or if your boat is being used by others than yourself. If the speed indicates that the boat are transported over land, you will be noticed by an alarm.

User’s Manual 5.7

Chock Sensor

Maximum chock effects with a configurable alarm limit in unit 1/1000 g (g=gravity). The Marine Alarm must be fixed mounted in the boat, to register the chock effect correct. Experience has shown that a value of 500 (500/1000 g ~ ½ of gravity) is normally suitable. This value will normally not activate the alarm when the boat is moored, but will activate the alarm if the boat hits the jetty. The setting can be tested by activating the alarm and then bouncing on the deck. A strong bounce corresponds that the boat hits the jetty and will force the alarm to be set. If the chock sensor is used for e.g. charter boats, the value can be set higher if you only want alarms in case of grounding.

5.8

Wireless Sensors Up to 50 wireless sensors can be connected to the alarm system as needed. The following wireless sensors can be connected: • • • • • •

Motion Sensor, which monitor the temperature difference in the environment. If a living creature enters the boat an alarm will be set. Water Sensor, which monitor water or moisture in the boat. Door Sensor, which monitor if a door/window is opened. Remote Control, which can turn the alarm on/off without using the mobile app. Shore Power Sensor, which monitor if the shore power is interrupted longer than 5 minutes. Temperature Sensor, which measures the temperature in the boat.

The wireless sensors are connected to the alarm system by entering their ID, choosing the sensor type and giving them a descriptive text. The text will be included in the alarm SMS’s, why it’s important that it identifies the individual sensors.

The alarms are activated individually, by setting Activating the individual alarms is not done before the alarm is turned on, by pressing the red button, which change to green with the text “On”. Hereby all connected alarms are activated. The alarm is turned off, by pressing the green button, which change to red with the text “Off”. When the alarm is turned on/off, an SMS message is sent to the alarm receivers, telling the status of the alarm – this normally takes a few seconds. If external 12/24V power supply is lost while the alarm is active, the alarm system automatically enters energy mode to save the internal battery power. In this condition the alarm will continue at least 12 hours without external power supply. In energy mode, the alarm will monitor the alarm sensors every 15 minutes and sleep in-between. The alarm system automatically enters normal operation when external power is restored.

Output Settings Menu SuperSail Marine Alarm Wireless has 1 (optional up to 6) configurable outputs, where e.g. switches to activate external units can be connected. The units can be activated independent and individually. In the text field you can write a text that identifies the unit connected. If the “Activate on Alarm” check box is marked for Output #1, this indicates to the alarm system that e.g. a siren is connected to Output #1. The alarm system will automatically activate Output #1 if a theft alarm is activated. The Output #1 remains activated 5 minutes after the theft alarm is activated. Turning off the alarm also turns off the Output #1. Output #1 is activated by the following alarms: • Max. Movement Alarm, which indicates that the boat is being stolen • Motion Sensor which indicates break in to the boat • Door Sensor which indicates break in to the boat • Input #1 activation – Input #1 can e.g. be used to monitor an outboard engine.

Setting the “Immobilizer” check box for Output #2, automatically sets Output #2 to 12/24V when the Alarm is turned on. All Outputs can be used as manual activated Outputs by using the check boxes to the left of each Output.

8.1

Charging

The alarm system is available in a number of versions with different accessories used for larger boats. The alarm system must be connected to the power from the boat and is active as soon as it is connected. Charging of the internal battery is performed automatically to ensure full capacity. An intelligent internal charger ensures maximum life time for the internal battery.

8.2

Operation

The tracker is started by the SuperSail server, which means that the GSM network connection is always active. If the external 12/24V supply for the alarm system is removed while the alarm is active it enters energy mode and reduces the monitoring of theft to 15 minutes’ intervals. When the 12/24V supply is reestablished the alarm system automatically enters normal operation. In energy mode the alarm can operate on internal battery for at least 12 hours, where the position of the boat is monitored every 15 minutes and reported if changed.

8.3

LED’s in Unit

On the front of the alarm system 2 blinking diodes are seen. One indicates communication on the GSM network and the other one indicates that the software is running correct. These are only to be used in case of service and troubleshooting. The third diode under the GPS antenna connector, lights green when the alarm system has a reliable GPS signal. If it changes to red, this means that the GPS signal is poor or disappeared. After connecting the alarm system the diode will be updated after a few minutes when the GPS signal has stabilized. If the diode lights red it is recommended to move the GPS antenna to a place with more optimal reception. Never place the antenna under a metal surface and make sure that it is mounted with the black top side up (please refer to the installation manual for correct installation).
