GOST NT-Evolution 2.0 Marine Security System
Starting at $2,999.99; www.gostglobal.com
The NT-Evolution 2.0 from GOST Global is a wireless marine security, monitoring, and satellite-tracking system in a rugged, marine-ready package. Based on the company’s Phantom control unit, the system combines wireless sensors, outputs, and key-fob devices with a battery backup.
Using GOST’s Nav-Tracker and the Inmarsat satellite constellation, the system can track a boat’s position virtually anywhere in the world.
A quad-band GPRS/GSM module allows simultaneous voice and text-message reporting and control with the addition of a SIM card when in cellular range.
The system comes with wireless dual optical infrared beam sensors, a mini siren, a high-intensity strobe, a door/hatch sensor, and a pull sensor, but GOST offers a range of 64 wireless sensors to customize the system to each boat’s individual needs.
Components are designed to be small and unobtrusive to allow the system to be concealed in out-of-the-way places, even on smaller boats with less enclosed space.
