Enhancing Efficiency With Car Ferry Deck & Door Monitoring

Wireless door status monitoring on every ferry journey.

For a Ferry operator based in the South of England, door checks on each journey were required to ensure the safety of the crew and passengers. However, they wanted to upgrade their manual inspections to a more efficient hands-free process. To do so, the business needed a wireless door monitoring solution with sensors suitable for exposure to outdoor elements.

Here's a closer look at how the car ferry was able to utilise MobiusFlow middleware to ensure the safety, security, and efficiency of their operation. 

How Wireless Door Monitoring Boosts Efficiency & Safety for a Ferry Operator


The doors on the car decks were open to the elements including freezing temperatures, rain, snow, and salt water. Additionally, the devices required need to be wireless as well as offer the ability to report the open/closed status of each door as live data. 


The System Integrator engineered a device specifically for this client's remote data monitoring solution. It was comprised of an analogue door contact and wireless EnOcean transmitter to provide a live binary status back to a 4G MobiusFlow gateway, visualising the data on a dashboard with scheduled reports also set up.
