A Permanent Lightning Awareness Solution for Marine Industry OEMs

Is Safety Optional? or Essential?

Every year, 60% of lightning related accidents occur near water. Whether near the water for work or play, safety is NOT an option. From pleasure crafts to boat building, it's essential to stay aware when dangerous lightning is in striking range. Lightning can strike from 25 miles away, but thunder can only be heard from 10 miles away. 

The chance of a boat being struck by lightning is 1 in 1,000! With odds like that, it's essential to protect life and property. Lightning can cause severe damage to some of the most expensive parts of a boat, including electronics. Knowing lightning is imminent can provide precious time to batten down & seek safety.

Recently, lightning caused four pontoon boats to catch fire in St. Lucie County. While it happened overnight and no one was injured, it's an ominous reminder to stay aware when lightning is in the area.

 Now OEMs Have a Ready-to-Install Design Solution that Provides:

  • Clean Appearance
  • Permanent, Space Saving Design
  • Real Time Lightning Alerts 

Highly versatile for custom installations, the TALOS remote system is the answer to enhancing lighting awareness on boats and personal watercraft.

How it Works

When lightning is nearby, every moment counts.

Boaters typically keep phones tucked away safely and may be distracted while enjoying the moment. Sooner than they realize, a storm is rapidly moving in with little time to act!

The chance of a boat being struck by lightning is 1 out of 1,000!

TALOS®️ Lightning Detection System is:

Boaters can see the flashing LEDs and hear the alerts when lightning is detected from 25 miles away. As the storm moves closer or further away, the LEDs will change color. Informing the user whether danger is leaving or moving in closer allows boaters to decide if it's time to get to safety.

Why TALOS®️ lightning alerts? Phones already send notifications!

Our products aren't about replacing  a phone. It's about peace of mind when phones aren't convenient.

At moments like:

  • When phones are safely secured to keep them from being dropped overboard or damaged.
  • When phones are set to silent/ do not disturb.
  • When there isn't a reliable data signal or connection.
  • When weather notifications are set for specific intervals, real time updates can be missed.
  • When weather app updates are set for a location other than where the person is actually situated.

This is what makes TALOS®️  a perfect solution. 

  • The bright LEDs and loud audible alerts keep occupants aware of approaching lightning & storm fronts
  • The lightning detector is a SELF CONTAINED, stand alone device
  • Real time alerts are based on the location of the device, giving occupants more time to seek shelter

    Don't miss a beat with TALOS®️ ongoing monitoring!
