Making marinas – truly – smarter

Smart Marina by Konnected Technology has unveiled groundbreaking Smart Marina Technology & Dashboard distributed by US-based Premier Materials.

Unlike other players in the field who focus on front office connectivity, Smart Marina by Konnected innovation extends the conventional boundaries by focusing on the physical (smart dock) to technical infrastructure (smart Wi-Fi) of marinas, ushering in a new era of efficiency, safety and seamless management.
While the norm is to offer software-based systems focused on boater management and revenue collection, the Konnected system stands out for its unwavering commitment to the actual marina infrastructure. The technology utilises Internet of Things (IoT) devices to collect real-time data from physical components within the marina and feeds it into a sophisticated software system that leverages Artificial Intelligence (AI) for in-depth analysis and proactive decision-making.
Key features include:
• Monitoring and analysing incoming internet speed, ensuring uniform distribution of Wi-Fi throughout the marina for a seamless boater experience.
• Providing secure gate control with advanced access management features.
• Utilising IoT devices to identify potential hot spots in the marina, preventing fires before they occur.
• Offering real-time monitoring of load capacities, with instant alerts for attention and adjustments.
• Ensuring optimal anchoring conditions with alerts for adjustments, enhancing safety and stability.
• Managing boaters in their slips with alerts for boat departure, permission controls for Wi-Fi and gate access, and scheduling boat repair and maintenance appointments.
• Delivering real-time weather alerts to boaters, enhancing safety and preparedness.
• Integrating existing marina systems into a single, user-friendly dashboard for streamlined management and operational efficiency.
Premier Materials president, Lisa Marquis, is excited about the launch. “Our Smart Marina technology represents a paradigm shift in how marinas are managed,” she said. “We are not just offering software; we are transforming the very infrastructure that forms the backbone of marina operations. From safety and security to seamless boater experiences, our technology is set to redefine the industry. We want owners and builders to expand what they think about the definition of Smart Marinas beyond office software solutions.”
