Siren’s 3 Series Receives NMEA 2000 Certification


Siren Marine announced that its 3 Series telematics products received NMEA 2000 certification.

“We have been working toward this important milestone for years,” Siren CEO and founder Daniel Harper said in a statement. “Our developers recognized early on that the key to the true power of marine IoT [Internet of Things] would come through connecting and communicating with myriad NMEA 2000 devices on board today’s advanced vessels. With the capabilities of our patented NMEA 2000 discovery process, the ability to control every circuit on a boat via remote digital switching is now possible.”

The NMEA 2000 standard is an open architecture protocol designed to network a range of devices using a central cable, or digital backbone, which enables them to communicate and share data.

“The power to receive this information using Siren IoT technology enables new levels of parts sales, service opportunities and customer support that have never before been possible for the marine industry,” Harper said.
