At the heart of the sys­tem is a com­pact black-box con­troller. It comes with a con­ve­nient snapon, snap-off bracket for easy re­moval to add sen­sor wires. We chose a mount­ing lo­ca­tion in a dark re­cess high in the gun­wale. This hides it from ne­far­i­ous types who might be look­ing to dis­arm or dis­card the sys­tem. The el­e­vated spot helps pro­tect it from mois­ture, though Siren Marine has wa­ter­proofed the cir­cuitry and junc­tion box for the sen­sor wires. Its GPS and cel­lu­lar sys­tems will re­ceive and trans­mit through fiber­glass.
