Smart Mate security features include geofence and unauthorized entry. Safety features include; fire detection, high water alarm, bilge pump activation, run time and more. Remotely control; lights, fans, pumps etc. Once an alarm is triggered all designated users receive real-time alerts via email, push notifications and text.
