Star2M® – Monitoring, control and asset management

Star2M® is a wholly owned subsidiary of Sealite Pty Ltd providing innovative remote monitoring, control and asset management services for the marine and aviation industries and beyond.

The platform is designed for new and existing customers, suiting the needs of small operators with low support networks through to asset managers where remote monitoring and whole of life asset management is critical.

This platform provides secure connectivity and diagnostic information to receive battery status, asset location, remote control configuration and alarms, with additional functionality embedded in the Star2M® platform.

Uninterrupted Secure Connectivity using the Iridium® Network

The Star2M® network is backed by Iridium®, the Low Earth Orbit global satellite service company offering pole-to-pole coverage, anywhere, anytime.

After setting up your Aid to Navigation, the process of communication begins with the fixture, which transmits signals as an uplink and receives signals from Low Earth Orbiting satellites in the Iridium® network. Signals are then re-transmitted back to earth via a downlink, which can then be accessed exclusively via the Star2M® online secure portal.

Star2M® offers Sealite and Avlite customers the benefit of real time monitoring, control and data management, updating in under a minute, subject to the asset and external conditions.

Safety through cost effective monitoring and control

Star2M® provides a number of StarConnect subscription packages, designed to suit small to large users with a choice of Iridium® data packages available. StarConnect packages are based on the

What Our Client's Say

On behalf of Karachi Port I am pleased to acknowledge your good service and provision of the new SL-75 solar marine lanterns installed by your firm in the harbour channel at Karachi Port. The new lanterns are very feasible and useful and equipped with the latest navigational technology.

[Re: Sealite SL-LED Lightsource at LaCorbiere Lighthouse], We were impressed with Sealite’s solution which provided a modern, reliable and efficient light source whilst remaining sympathetic to the lighthouse’s heritage and significance as a local landmark, but most importantly to improve upon reliability and to continue its vital role in aiding the safety of navigation in Jersey’s waters, as it has done for nearly 130 years.

-Aaron Gavey

[Re: Sealite Wins Duke’s Choice Award for Java Technology & the Environment – Sealite GSM monitoring & control system]. The team at Motorola were extremely impressed with Sealite’s innovative integration of the G24-Java wireless module in their GSM Monitoring & Alarm System.

-Golan Haver

As one of your new distributors (Belize and Honduras, Waller Marine Belize LTD), I would like to express my congratulations to you and your people in providing reliable, dependable and inexpensive products. Formerly we were distributors for a Canadian made product but these were found to be too expensive for the market and also offered only difficult and complicated programming. Our first order of lights from you (SL15’s) took only four days to arrive from Aussie Land, when I opened the box they were still flashing. I tested a SL60 (white) for four days (steady on) before it required a recharge…remarkable. I will be placing another order shortly. Keep up the good work.

-Capt Andy Suddes

[Re: Installation of WindTalker for kite-surfing club], The WindTalker™ is a big success here in Cyprus, thanks to your after sales support the unit is now functioning perfectly.

-Christophe Meletiou

We choose to sell Sealite … this is a long story, well we treat Sealite as our own and the relationship we have developed with Jeff and Chris and their attitude and commitment towards growing Sealite to this stage is remarkable. We feel at home when talking to them and the staff of Sealite and this in turn gives us more security and strength in selling products in India.

-Aliasgar E Patrawala

[Re: Sealite Solar-Powered LED Area Lighting system], We chose the Sealite system for the Jacobs Well Queuing Pontoon due to our previous experience with Sealite’s product, its durability and construction.

-Peter Taylor

I just wanted to say thank you for the light and bracket Sealite supplied to Birkenhead Marina. As the other lights (old ones) need new batteries I will be replacing them with new lights from Sealite and the same brackets that you supplied with the light we received last week … Your product is excellent and the system of setting the light is good also. Thanks again for all your trouble.
