According to US Coast Guard Statistics, 70% of all accidents on the water involve falling overboard and collisions. The motor needs to stop immediately to prevent injuries. The AUTOTETHER™, wireless kill switch offers a convenient rapid response solution for the person who cares about themselves and their passengers. It will also permit everyone to safely move around the boat. The Autotether offers a cost effective, easy to install alternative to the hassles of using the red corded “kill switch.”
The revolutionary wireless lanyard that shuts off your motor within 1 1/2 seconds. It uses cutting edge RF technology and is the only wireless lanyard on the market that connects directly to the engine ignition kill switch, requires no hard wiring, is fail safe and works in both salt and freshwater. The Autotether™ Wireless Lanyard meets and exceeds the American Boating & Yachting Council A-33 Standard for Engine Cut-Off Devices. Protecting the boat operator and up to 3 passengers including pets and kids, allowing unrestricted movement about the boat by just wearing a small, wireless sensor. If the operator falls overboard it shuts off the motor and sounds an alarm and if a passenger falls overboard the alarm will sound.
Autotether™ Is An Award Winning Invention - East Hartford, CONNECTICUT – The wireless lanyard system manufactured by Autotether™ received the Connecticut Technology Council 2011 Innovation Pipeline Award as the most promising new technology product of the year. “We’re honored to be recognized by our home state Technology Council. With the U.S. Coast Guard currently developing a regulation to require the installation and use of engine cut-off switches, this award couldn’t come at a better time for our company,” said Autotether CEO Anthony Viggiano. The new Coast Guard regulation would require the installation and use of engine cut-off switches (lanyards) for boats less than 26 feet. Lanyards turn off a boat's engine if the operator is ejected from the boat, preventing boating injuries and casualties caused when people are struck by the boat or its propeller. While cut-off switches are already standard equipment on many small powerboats, the factory-installed systems require the operator to be tethered to the boat. As a result, these systems limit mobility on board and boaters generally don’t use them.
