MarineGuard Network is a subsidiary of
Sure Action Inc.
the only manufacturer to successfully develop the Pulsor stress sensor, a
security device that mounts under flooring or boat decking to provide
invisible, reliable, unparalleled security detection.
In 1990, the
MarineGuard product line was developed to fill a need in the marine
industry. As boat theft increased worldwide, reliable security devices
that could withstand the harsh marine environment and not be falsely
activated by a boat's movement on the water or against a dock, were not
available on the market. Austin and Trent Stack recognized that the
Pulsor could be adapted to withstand marine conditions and was ideal for the
In 1991, Sure Action introduced its MarineGuard
product. In 2007, MarineGuard introduced its 5th generation of
MarineGuard security products. All MarineGuard control panels are
coated with a weather protector and all Deck Sensors (marine version of the
Pulsor) are sealed and use marine-grade wire.
In a world where
products are designed to have a short shelf life, Sure Action and
MarineGuard products continue to be designed with longevity in mind.
Our MarineGuard products are epoxied or coated with a weather-proofing
sealant to protect components from sunlight, wind, rain, saltwater and more.
About the Owners, Austin and Diane Stack
Austin's passion for the security industry began in 1973 when he and his
brother, Bob, lost their office supply store to fire. Needing to
support their families, Bob went into the Merchant Marines while Austin
started Radio Surveillance, an alarm installation company, in the basement
of his home. He built their security company in the Hamptons by
installing home alarms at a time when residential intruder alarms were
not the norm. In time Austin and Bob grew their business to include a
24-hour manned central station and guard service. Radio Surveillance
became the largest residential security company in the Hamptons. It
was a multi-million dollar company when it was sold in 1985.
Austin and Diane Stack purchased the rights to the Pulsor, a unique
stress detector that had been the primary product used in Radio
Surveillance's home alarms. When Austin was installing alarms, he
discovered that no other product compared with the Pulsor for stability,
dependability and convenience. And his high-end clientele wanted home
alarms that were convenient and maintenance-free. Austin and Diane
took the Pulsor global and Sure Action Inc. began it's journey.
Boating is one of Austin's favorite pastimes. He is a tinkerer and he
soon discovered that the Pulsor was a perfect match for the marine industry.
Numerous megayachts and historical boats have Pulsors (marine-verison is the
Deck Sensor) installed on them, both as a security component and as a
trigger for other security and home automation functions. Sure Action
created MarineGuard to meet the needs of these high-end boat security
installers and to bring the stability and dependability of the Pulsor to
boater's with various types of vessels.
Austin lives on a
canal where he docks his 16' Winstar Bowrider . He enjoys
spending time taking his grandchildren out on the Peconic Bay each summer.
