Self-Healing Auto Reboot
There's nothing more frustrating than wasting time and money to roll a truck to a customer's site for a simple reset. That problem is solved with Wattbox IP+. Thanks to its self-healing auto reboot, if a router, satellite receiver or other device loses connectivity to the Internet, our smart detection technology will uncover the problem and automatically cycle the power.
Remote Access and IP Control
For those times when a manual reset is required, Wattbox IP+ Remote Access enables you to cycle power from anywhere in the world. Turn off a single outlet - or all outlets – right from your PC or Mac's web browser. And thanks to IP control, you can download popular control system drivers to get simple network-based device management at your fingertips. Visit each product’s Support Tab for more information.

Managing Customer Accounts
When you need to remotely access a customer’s Wattbox, don’t waste time searching through your records to find the location and IP address. Instead, set up a web-based document to house and organize all important information – Wattbox types, locations and addresses – so it’s simple to find. We recommend using Google Drive, and have created a sample spreadsheet to get you started (see the product Support Tabs). See how it’s done
Sophisticated Programming & Scheduling
Advanced doesn't even begin to cover it. With Wattbox IP+ Programming & Scheduling you can create custom events, like power sequencing, and automate commonly performed functions. Does the wireless router act up over time? Automatically reboot it once a week to clear out any gremlins.
Stay informed by setting up customized email alerts for key events that occur, like an auto reboot. This feature makes it easy to spot failure patterns, or just stay on top of what's happening with each system. With the ability to support multiple email addresses, alerts are sent wherever you need them to go.
The supplied Wattbox Utility program takes the guesswork out of initial setup. Once your Wattbox conditioners are connected to the network, the Utility automatically detects them and provides a fast, intuitive way to configure IP addresses and launch the browser interface.
How would you like to have direct access to the amount of energy you are using in your home or business at any given moment? Finally, you won’t have to hold your breath every time your energy bill is delivered to your mailbox!
A growing number of businesses and families are utilizing energy monitoring technologies such as Eragy or Powerhouse Dynamics to monitor their energy output 24x7. Both technologies offer a host of cutting-edge features that are sure to give you invaluable insights on your energy usage.
Eragy Home Energy Monitoring with Control4
Eragy runs in conjunction with the Control4 home automation system and an energy sensor that is installed prior to usage. Throughout the day, Eragy monitors energy usage and then sends data to their secure website. The system then correlates your energy usage with utility provider’s rates and projects your current costs.
To view energy usage and cost statistics Eragy utilizes your Control4 touch panel, TV, computer, iPhone, Android, or iPad. After viewing the data, users you can then make needed adjustments to your home or business to decrease energy usage.
Powerhouse Dynamics is an amazing system that takes energy monitoring to new heights. The system breaks down energy usage circuit-by-circuit and pinpoints various items in your home or business that are contributing to high energy costs.
It also has the power to monitor each appliance within a home and sends out an alert when one isn’t performing well. You are also given the ability to control the temperature of your home from anywhere via a smartphone. Additionally, if you utilize renewable energy sources such as solar power, Powerhouse Dynamic’s eMonitor will reveal if they are producing the amount of which they are capable.
When the system finds it necessary to alert you to a particular problem or unnecessary energy output, the system can be programmed to send you a text message or e-mail. You can liken the system to a home assistant that is there to make your live 100 times easier!
Smart Meters Installed Across BC to Improve Energy Costs & Efficiency
The idea of energy efficiency is also being taken seriously throughout BC. In fact, there is a BC Hydro Smart Metering Program that will see the installation of 1.8 million meters in home and businesses by December 2012. The meters are expected to save BC residents more than $70 million over the next three years and $1.6 billion over the next 20 years.
At Digital Smart Homes, we can provide you monitoring technologies that are compatible with Smart Meters. Additionally, we can provide you a full demo of the above systems. We invite you to drop by our showroom or contact me at 604-375-3474 extension #700 for more information.
