Nitro Networks' High Water Alert System is designed to provide security and peace of mind to boat owners.


The system consists of an electronic device - the HiWaterAlert - wired to a float switch in the bilge that detects when the water level rises above a preset threshold. The device triggers the NitroAlert to transmit an e-mail or text message using Wi-Fi. As long as the water level remains above the threshold, the alert will continue to repeat at predetermined intervals. An "All Clear" message is transmitted when the level drops below the danger level. Powered with a USB port or an AC adapter (cables provided), the system will work with any standard brand of float switch. The system can send as many as six simultaneous e-mail and/or text messages. The HiWaterAlert measures 3.3 inches by 2.75 inches by 0.75 inches and is available for $460 through retail dealers and distributors. Contact: Nitro Networks, (603) 610-4206. www.nitronetworks.com
