Thank you for your very prompt reply!
I came from (now retired) from the Bluetooth/embedded devices/”generic” I/O product design world, so I know and feel your pain regarding this.
One immediate need would be to monitor dockside power (loss). Monitoring charging/charger output for this case is sometimes misleading when batteries reach their full charge state. Also there is a difference between failure of the charger vs. failure of input power source. I realize that alerting on low battery is the final desire here, but having the other information would be of value.
Another might be to monitor multiple HVAC systems on a large boat. Again, temperature is the final desire, but one might want to detect which unit, etc.
Other inputs may include water/moisture sensors (for non-bilge compartments) and, as you say, a hatch switch or something.
O the output side, there is of course 12V switching for any number of things – lights for illusion of occupancy, etc. Fans, time-based devices, etc. I understand how tricky output definitions/specifications are and what hap-hazard users end up really doing with them……
Having been there, I also certainly realize that this is a business decision and that you cannot support “the world”. Just chiming in though, in case there are THOUSANDS of others saying the same thing
Thanks for creating a great prodct (SUPER just as it is!) and having a great support team!
Very Best Regards,
