- Bilge Pump
A BRNKL is needed to add any other accessories for security and monitoring.

BRNKL offers boat security and monitoring so you can enjoy peace of mind whether you’re at the dock, at home, or on the water.
See what’s happening when you’re away. Take and view photos* anytime—or automatically when an intruder enters** or other event happens.
Stay connected to your boat. Monitor location, battery voltage, ignition switch, bilge pump activity, and other critical conditions. Add security sensors and other devices to protect your boat and know even more.
Know when it happens. Find out when a battery gets low, your critical systems need attention, or some other event happens. Get real-time notifications on your mobile device, an email, or both.
Cross borders. Roam without roaming charges, SIM card swaps, or configuration hassles.
*Requires a compatible camera.
**Requires a compatible security sensor.
For boat owners who are looking for a simple monitoring solution, we highly recommend our basic monitoring kit. With a BRNKL and a shore power sensor, you’ll be able to keep tabs on your boat while you’re away and monitor critical systems around the clock.
To go beyond basic monitoring and protect your boat from unwanted visitors and theft, add security accessories to your BRNKL to create a custom security system. For example, add a door sensor to detect unusual activity, a camera to keep eyes on your boat, or a siren to scare off intruders.
Note: Any wireless accessories require a BRNKL Mate connected to a BRNKL.

Will it work if I’m going offshore?
The BRNKL communicates over a cellular connection, with a global SIM card built right into it. If you’re headed offshore or somewhere remote with little to no cell service, use an external satellite (included with purchase of a BRNKL) to ensure connectivity.
How many DC Relays do I need?
It’s common to see cruisers requiring two DC Relays where the dedicated bilge input of the BRNKL is connected to the aft bilge, then the DC Relays connect the forward and mid-ship bilge pumps to the BRNKL digital inputs.
What security accessories do I need?
If you’re looking for a basic security system, we recommend three wireless door sensors (main entry, port entry, and starboard entry) along with a second camera in order to have a view in the pilot house and a view in the saloon. Note that wireless sensors and a second camera require a BRNKL Mate connected to your BRNKL.
If you don’t want to have a siren on board, you can stick with door sensors to know if someone has broken in instead of having a possibly intrusive audible siren.
