GOST® Launches New Hardwired Package Of Most Popular Products Into An Affordable And Expandable Bundle

Fort Lauderdale, Fla. – GOST® (Global Ocean Security Technologies), a world leader in marine security, tracking, monitoring and video surveillance systems, announced today it has packaged its most popular products into a new, easy-to-install, insurance compliant offering: the GOST GNT-Evolution IDP Hardwired Security Package. This bundle provides marine electronic installers, boatbuilders and customers everything needed for an accessible yet robust tracking and monitoring system.

The GOST GNT-Evolution IDP Hardwired Security Package is the newest version of GOST’s award-winning, globally capable wireless security, monitoring and satellite tracking system designed with new hardwired inputs to simplify installation where direct wire runs are preferred. The security system provides boaters with a rugged, marine-grade satellite relay unit with real-time global tracking and security alerts at an affordable and accessible price point. Providing exceptional quality and value, the new package includes a satellite tracking antenna; door, hatch or engine cowling sensor; an infrared beam sensor designed to protect the exterior areas of the vessel; high water sensor; siren and strobe; key fob for arm and disarm functions and the GOST Universal Control Unit (UCU) at a reduced, competitive retail price. In addition, boat owners that want to still expand their system can add up to 32 wireless sensors and the whole system can be controlled either by the included remote or any mobile device with the web-based Specter interface.

“For the last eighteen years, GOST has been the leader in the maritime security and tracking market by setting the standards for our demanding yacht owners,” said Jay Keenan, president, CEO, GOST. “By bundling our most popular products together in an affordable, hardwired base system, the new GNT-Evolution IDP Hardwired Security Package gives customers and boat builders the best of the best without anything superfluous. In addition, with the proven Universal Control Unit driving the system, users can always add more to their system as their needs evolve. It’s always been a goal of ours to have a simple, base package for our users to build from.”

Offering almost infinite customizability, the UCU can communicate with up to 32 wireless sensors, 5 relays and 32 users/key fobs. The internal LTE/4G/3G communicator provides cellular control with app and text messaging. Additionally, the UCU can work with any existing internet onboard via its third party CAT5 ethernet plug as GOST recognizes that many boats already have internet and there is no need to pay for a second cellular/VSAT connection.

The GOST GNT-Evolution IDP Hardwired Security Package retails for $4,999.99. For more information on GOST and its full line of security products, contact or visit
