Press Release”Sept. 15, 2009 – Burger Boats has once again produced a
masterpiece with their newest launch M/Y Sycara IV. Viewing her timeless profile and exquisite vintage interior one feels as if they have stepped back in time and she is sure to be chosen the “Belle of the Show” at her debut at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show next month.
Palladiums SiMON system is on board to protect this 151ft+ (46m) new classic Fantail Motor Yacht, with over 400 alarmed sensor points and a controlled access security system throughout. Two functional monitoring stations are located in the bridge and engine room along with an alarm indicator station in the crew area. SiMON is monitoring the usual engines, generators, bilges, doors while also tying into the ships switchboards and fire systems.
Palladium Technologies’ Description
Imagine extending the reach of your SiMON monitoring/alarm system to encompass your wireless iPhone and the iPod Touch. Once again Palladium, the designers of SiMON have broken the mold of yacht monitoring and alarm system by bringing you iSiMON.
Having the prestigious honor of being selected by Apple Computers to be one of the few beta software developers for the iPhone and iPod Touch in the marine industry, Palladium put their best minds together to come up with a very graphically pleasing and functional application called iSiMON.
iSiMON works wirelessly around the yacht and dock to provide the captain and crew direct remote viewing of; Engines, Generators, Tanks, Bilge Levels, Batteries, Ships AC Bus, etc. In addition, all alarms in SiMON will appear on the wireless iPhones and iPod Touches proving instant notifications. Not only will the visual alarm notification occur, but an audible siren will sound on the iPod Touch, along with it vibrating. Control functionality has also been added where by pressing a button on the touch screen it will allow for the remote control over, pumps, lights, etc.
Michael Blake the president of Palladium showed a pre-demo of the iSiMON to a select number of yacht engineers and captains at the Monaco boat show. The responses were “WOW”, “That is really cool”, “When can we get one?” etc. I knew we had a hit when I heard the responses and saw their body language when I showed them our iSiMON, said Mike. Moving into the Apple world is allowing us to take our graphical designs to a much higher level.
Mike hinted that there is more to follow with their Apple development. Palladium will be demonstrating its new iSiMON at the Monaco, Fort Lauderdale boat shows and METS in Amsterdam.
iSiMON APPLICATION WILL ALSO BE AVAILABLE AS A DOWNLOAD ON APPLES iTUNES STORE. NOTE YOU MUST HAVE ALREADY PURCHASED A SiMON MONITORING SYSTEM AND ITS CORRESPONDING UPGRADE FOR THIS PRODUCT TO WORK WITH THE LICENSED VESSEL.
