    If a boat is cruising outside of the US will the Siren system still monitor it? Do we still pay the monthly fee or is it different?

    Thanks, Paul

    Paul, according to their FAQ, Siren is using a global Vodafone sim card and will work anywhere in the world:

    Several of the monitoring systems, like Navico’s GoFree Track, use the same 3G Vodafone service, and it seems like Vodafone has put together quite a lot of coverage via partnerships and their own tower systems. But there are oddities and I happen to live in one. Neither Siren MTC nor Track work in Camden, Maine, though lots of cell services do. But they did start working as soon as I started down the coast and I’m pretty sure I’d find service in many other places.

  3. Have been looking forward to seeing the wireless sensors with the Siren system. That will make installation much easier!

    I just purchased a second MTC for a Nordic Tug we bought in the fall. I already have a MTC in a Ranger Tug we are selling. It is a great product and the wireless sensors are a nice improvement. I talked to Alex from Siren Marine at the Defender warehouse sale (they had a great deal on the MTC with a free wireless sensor!) and he said all the wireless sensors monitor temperature in addition to their primary function. So this would allow you to monitor temp in your bilge where a wireless high water sensor is located, or battery compartment temp where you have a battery voltage sensor.
    Note I am a long time Siren Marine customer having purchased the original PIxie monitor years ago for my Ranger Tug. This was upgraded to a MTC when they were first introduced.
