AutoTether is a wireless 'kill cord' and man-overboard sensor. The boat operator wears a small yellow sensor that triggers the AutoTether to trip the boat's existing kill switch if he fall's overboard.
The AutoTether Wireless Lanyard allows the operator freedom to move about the boat - you can’t do that with a hard-wired kill switch because you are 'chained' to your boat’s ignition. The AutoTether is engaged when a sensor is immersed in water or the range of the receiver is exceeded (50 to 200 feet away). The white passenger sensors set off an alarm notifying the operator of activation. Peace of mind for up to three passengers can be enjoyed. AutoTether your small children, pets or even a towed dingy (if it breaks loose, you'll know!).
The AutoTether 'Kill Switch' receiver clips right into your current ignition kill switch (OMC #1, OMC #2, Yamaha, Mercury, Honda, Suzuki). It is completely waterproof and battery powered (100 hours life).
The AutoTether 'Screamer' is a wireless alarm system for sailboats, large boats, pools, campsites or the beach that sounds an alarm when any of its sensors are submerged underwater or go beyond approximately 100ft. from the receiver. Using cutting edge RF technology it tracks the wireless sensors, and when the signal between the receiver and sensors is broken “The Screamer” sounds a pulsating alarm of 105 decibels. Each receiver can track up to 4 passengers (including kids and pets). AutoTether Owners Manual (.pdf)
