The Parrot is the compact, very easy install version of the Pirate Light family. The PIR sensor, siren and high intensity light, are mounted together, and easily mount using the included Mantus rail clamp. Wiring from the unit to single switch on/off switch, and then to power is all that is required. Activate the system from the on/off, and the high intensity light will ward off intruders - or, activate the siren as you leave the boat with the included key fob remote and both lights and siren will active based on the sensitivity settings on the PIR sensor. On the Columbus - we started with the Parrot system. We mounted it to the bimini frame over the cockpit table which kept is out of the way of our movement in the cockpit. Generally when we leave the boat - the bimini enclosure is up - so access to the boat is from the aft entry up the sugar scoop. The system worked great as both both lighting to ward off intruders in conjunction with the siren, and..as when we disarmed the siren with the remote fob when returning to the boat, gave great lighting as we arrived.
We'll be adding detail about Pirate Lights this month - along with a video of it's installation onboard the FreeSpiritGear S/V Columbus!
