Power Mangement

Real Time Power Monitoring and Management with Intelligence

Remote power monitoring and management with intelligence watches, notifies and reacts to all power related conditions.  Get notified by email, text or while online when one of the power solutions is running hot, the access control won’t engage, or the security solution might somehow be compromised should a real emergency occur. Remotely access from anywhere, assess the system health, and even reboot or reset necessary components. If on-site service is necessary, it can be scheduled with the proper parts and accessories, so ideally the visit is accomplished during a single call. Here’s what intelligent remote monitoring brings to the table for both integrator and end user.

Analytics and Events

All local power management components communicate their status and take their commands from the NL4/NL2. Power information is sent to BluSKY and analyzed in real time. More than 40 power conditions are analyzed and produce system events when conditions persist. Events are analyzed by and Intelligence engine and actions are taken automatically based upon the conditions.

  1. Power State Change to AC /Battery
  2. Battery Running Low
  3. Battery Needs Check/Replacement
  4. Power Supply Voltages Exceeded or Limited
  5. Power Supply Currents Exceeded or Limited
  6. Temperature Above or Below Limits
  7. Power Limited
  8. Power Not Ready
  9. Control Input Status Change to Active/Inactive
  10. Fire Relay Status Change to Active/Inactive
  11. Zone Status Change
  12. Communication Errors
  13. Data Not Being Read
