Providing integrators with new tools to manage power in residential and commercial installations, Nortek Security & Control, a global leader in wireless security, home automation, access control, and health and wellness technology, announced that BlueBOLTâ 2.0 IP Power Management, a major update to its real-time, cloud and LAN based power control and monitoring platform, is available to all.
BlueBOLT was the original IP power management platform, enabling integrators to manage power in their installations from anywhere with an internet connection. BlueBOLT pairs with Panamaxâ and Furmanâ power conditioners to deliver the best in power protection, performance and management for mission-critical projects world-wide. The BlueBOLT IP power management platform reduces service calls with remote reboots of problem devices; maximizes network health with scheduled power cycles; and self-heals network devices to save money and time – managed from anywhere with an internet connection.
“Panamax and Furman have always been the gold standard for power protection and performance,” said Nortek Security & Control Power Product Manager Christos Desalernos. “Now BlueBOLT 2.0 elevates the IP power management experience, with an intuitive and exceptionally fast UI backed by a robust new IP infrastructure for maximum performance and reliability.” Thousands of installations are already experiencing the benefits of BlueBOLT 2.0.
“BlueBOLT 2.0 adds new features that address challenges faced by integrators every day,” continued Desalernos. “The result enables integrators to be proactive in their client support, document their value to clients and generate recurring revenue for the value and services they deliver.” In addition to the new UI, the enhanced BlueBOLT 2.0 includes:
to enable tagging of high priority locations & devices
with a faster search engine to find customers, locations and devices
to manage access rights for individuals as well as groups
BlueBOLT enables integrators to deliver superior service to clients and ensure proper operation of audio, video, control and security systems. Integrators can troubleshoot client systems without rolling a truck, use real-time and historical power monitoring to diagnose problems with a utility company, program ping-based outlet cycling to automatically reboot unresponsive equipment, and provide proactive monitoring through email alerts that are sent when a client’s system logs a new event. For commercial applications that don’t rely on the cloud, BlueBOLT enables local control through its embedded browser. The BlueBOLT embedded browser control is particularly important for sensitive installations where a cloud connection is counter to their security protocol.
“Panamax and Furman deliver the best power performance and protection on the market,” concluded Desalernos. “With the new BlueBOLT 2.0, the total performance, protection and control package is second to none.”
