BlueBOLT Adds Mobile App to Elevate IP Power Management
Nortek Security & Control has announced the launch of the BlueBOLT Mobile Platform, which expands remote IP power management options for technology integrators. This mobile version of the company’s real-time, cloud-based power control and monitoring platform is now available for Apple and Android devices.
The new BlueBOLT 2.0 IP Power Management Platform, now with the BlueBOLT Mobile app, pairs with Panamax and Furman power conditioners. BlueBOLT Mobile is said by the company to help minimize service calls with remote reboots of problem devices; maximize network health with scheduled power cycles; and self-heal network devices to save money and time – managed from anywhere with an Internet connection.
“Intelligent power management has three essential components: protection, performance and management,” said Nortek Security & Control Power Products Manager Christos Desalernos in the announcement statement. “Convenience is an important element in the management piece, and the new BlueBOLT Mobile app substantially elevates the convenience of the BlueBOLT 2.0 IP Management Cloud.”
A key benefit of remote power management platform is to minimize truck rolls. “If your power conditioner or distribution hardware fails, that’s completely defeated the purpose of the remote management as you’ll definitely be rolling a truck,” continued Desalernos.
BlueBOLT Mobile is designed to help integrators be proactive in their client support, and ensure proper operation of audio, video, control and security systems. Its Watchlist feature enables tagging of high-priority locations and devices - those that deserve special attention. Combined with location and device filtering, this enables integrators to identify potential issues before the customer even knows there’s an issue.
BlueBOLT Mobile can be downloaded at the Apple App Store and at the Google Play Store. Integrators can access the new BlueBOLT 2.0 at www.mybluebolt.com
