Unlike normal AIS which send and receive AIS data, WatchMate Vision2 has smartAIS which is an active safety system with smart alarm logic that alerts you rapidly to potential dangers.
smartAIS includes these three powerful features:
- Safety Underway. This alerts you when smartAIS detects a potential collision.
- Safety at Anchor. If your anchor drags, smartAIS will let you know immediately.
- Safety for your Crew. If someone is thrown overboard, smartAIS not only alerts you, it also provides their location so you can pick them up quickly.
This means you can focus on sailing your vessel, knowing smartAIS is always keeping watch in the background and is ready to alert you the moment it detects a hazard or unwanted event.
