While you're enjoying time on the boat, severe weather isn't typically the first thing on your mind.

You'll see & hear alerts when lightning is detected from 25 miles away, giving you time to get you and your family to safety.

No Need for Your Phone When You Have the Talos Lightning Detector

The TALOS®️ lightning detector isn't about replacing your phone. It's about having peace of mind without your phone in hand.

  • When your phone isn't nearby or on silent - the TALOS®️ bright LEDs and loud audible alerts keep you aware of approaching lightning & storm fronts
  • No WIFI needed. The lightning detector is a SELF CONTAINED, stand alone device
  • Weather apps send notifications at specific intervals and based on location set, real time updates may be delayed. TALOS®️ alerts depending on distance of storm or lightning strike

TALOS®️ provides ongoing monitoring so you won't miss a beat.

Will you check your phone in time before a storm is upon you?
