Bluetooth localisation

Superyacht owners are used to the kind of service where they don’t have to ask for anything as the crew already know what they want and when. So why should the technical system be any different? With this in mind, Crestron is seeing a rise in localisation systems, which allow the yacht to be alerted via Bluetooth as soon as the owner walks into a particular room.

“You can have Bluetooth beacons installed around the yacht so that as soon as a person walks into a room with their telephone in their pocket, we know where they are, and if we know that the owner likes a certain kind of music, and we know that he likes the lights to be at a certain level, everything can go on automatically,” Kerkhof adds.
