Anchor Watch

Anchor Watch

Monitor safe anchorage with Anchor Watch, an intelligent system that alerts you if your boat's anchor is dragging. Once your Hub is installed you are good to go. The internal heading sensor works with your GPS to provide accurate Anchor Watch positioning and movement.

An integrated GPS enables you to see the position of your boat and set geofence alerts.

Battery Level

Battery Level

An integrated battery sensor monitors power supply to the hub. Set alerts for low voltage so you can avoid damage to your batteries caused by prolonged discharge.


A built-in barometer enables you to see the weather conditions at your boat.

Wind Indicator

Wind Indicator

NMEA 2000 connectivity enables Cortex to keep an eye on wind conditions, so you can be alerted when wind speed or direction changes.

Water Depth

Water Depth

Remotely monitor NMEA 2000 depth sensor changes and set alarms.

Monitor more... and control devices

Cortex can easily monitor even more by connecting to existing sensors or monitoring voltage.  Because Cortex is compatible with 3rd party sensors and control relays, you can get all the control and information you want.

Bilge Pump

No sensor needed, simply connect a wire to monitor voltage to your bilge pump.  Cortex Monitor will then record when your bilge pump is running.


Bilge Highwater Level

If your boat has a Bilge Highwater Sensor, you can remotely monitor it by connecting to your existing sensor.  


Boat Security

Add motion, magnetic door or pressure sensors to detect entry to your boat.


Shore Power Status

Add a sensor to check you are connected to shore power so your boat and devices are powered up.



Add a relay control and a premium monitor plan to remotely activate deck lights. Make it easy to spot your boat in a crowded anchorage.


Refrigeration/Ice Maker

Add a relay and premium monitor plan to remotely activate your refrigeration or ice-maker.


Heating and Cooling

Add a relay and premium monitoring plan to remotely activate air conditioning.
