A typical BRNKL install takes between two and four hours. Since the critical components of a boat are located in one place behind a vessel’s circuit breaker panel such as battery voltages, bilge activity, and shore power the installation can be completed very quickly.
If your boat is in a location with cellular reception then your BRNKL will be able to communicate. Barnacle Systems has partnered with a global cellular provider that allows the unit to roam from carrier to carrier around the world. No need to change SIM cards or modify any configurations… Perfect for even the most adventurous cruiser!
Is there a subscription fee?
Yes. BRNKL requires a $29/mo or $300/yr cellular subscription. There are no overages and no roaming fees.
Can the BRNKL communicate over WiFi?
No. The BRNKL device only communicates over cellular. Being a security device, we feel that relying on 3rd party communication equipment reduces the effectiveness of the hardware.
BRNKL is an award-winning ‘home security system for your boat’ built by people that know security. Whether you’re at the dock, at home, or half-way around the world you check on your vessel using the onboard camera while also monitoring critical systems such as battery banks, bilge pumps, shore power connections and more. BRNKL allows you to confidently leave your vessel knowing that it is safe and secure.
