We also have NEBO on the boat with the automated tracker and love it. Gives us great trip reporting without lifting a finger!

I went to the Nebo website https://nebo.global/?v=6cc98ba2045f
and cannot find anything about battery level monitoring. Perhaps some kind of hack?

Here is what I get with a subscription (which I welcome a way to avoid). I get the preset alerts too, and I can look at graphs for up to 7 days.

I will experiment with smartthings at home as it has sensors of interest for home use.
If all you can get is an alert when battery needs to be charged, not enough for me. I like to see after a power outage how the inverter charger goes to work on the batteries. Shore power off/on should be easy enough.
Bilge pump activity, I get alert it ran for 15 seconds as the fuel sensing float switch set to marina mode. What I wait for is does it turn on again & again suggesting a problem. so I know when it comes on and when it shut off.
Your system with it's graphs exceeds the capability of the smartthings sensors on the market.

I use smartthings for overall monitoring, but also have free access to my energy systems on line through Victron VRM. This gives me a replication of my energy display with full monitoring and even control

Not a hack, just a couple of clicks to get to the config screen.

Do I need to log in? Is there more config pages?

Sorry, I was referring to the NEBO app. You might want to shoot them an email about their website; I don’t use it for tracking or monitoring.

From Panbo on Siren Marine. It really goes deep into it.

Boat Cameras

We have a Jefferson 53 new to us recently.
I would love to have a camera that focuses on the engine room and the stern end of the boat. I hope to find a setup using Bluetooth that doesn't need a hard wire and that can be seen on our iPad.
Thanks for any suggestions ... Pat

If you need an alternative to a cell based system like Siren, Barnacle Systems sells BRNKL. I recently installed one after comparing to Siren and am quite satisfied that I made the right choice. While many features are similar, there are advantages to each system and BRNKL was a better fit for us.

Unless you have cell or satellite based internet, there will be times that wifi is not going to be effective. In our case, our marina wifi is mediocre at best and sometimes not working at all.

Another Siren fan here - the system can be as simple or complex as you’d like. We just monitor House Batts, Start Batts, High Water, Lowest Bilge pump, and cabin temp (for our dog who we leave for short periods with the air cond on). We may add modules to monitor Shore Power and entry doors next season.

Boat monitoring

Southern Boating magazine just did their Reader's Choice Awards and Garmin's On-Deck was the top choice beating out Siren by 2 places, Garmin was number 1.

Do your own due diligence and evaluate what will work best for you.

Marcell

I use Marcell. It uses cell towers to transmit info. It Monitors Temp, humidity, Power on and off and if you have water in the bilge. It is more simple but very reliable and does not need wifi. I have been very happy with them. 8.95 a month for the monitoring and the cell connect.

You may be able to use a simple GPS tracker like Trackimo as long as you have a battery source to keep it charged. Very small device. I use on my boat which I am sharing with a few other people. Tells you when boat is on the move, where it is on a map, how fast it is moving and you can set up to 5 geo fences
