The Essential WattBox
Since the IP WattBox now works for every job at any budget and has Wi-Fi capability, it makes sense to have several WattBox 250s in your toolbox for your next install. The WB-250-IPW connects through Wi-Fi or a wireless connection, giving you an essential problem solver for any job. The ability to enable auto-reboot, set schedules, and regularly power cycle saves you time and money. With OvrC, you can proactively solve issues without rolling a truck. Then, send your client a notification to alert them that you fixed a small concern before it became a larger problem, constantly reproving the value of your service. You can even use IP WattBox products to offer ongoing tech support for a monthly fee, creating a recurring revenue model for your business.
Every Spot, Every Job
We know that you’ll ultimately find many more ways to use this ultra-flexible form factor than we can think of. However, here are a few ideas for how you can unlock the power of WattBox:
- Use the detachable IEC cord to pair the WattBox 250 Series power controllers with a range of WattBox IEC cords with various lengths and styles to fit the needs of any job. Also, short extension cord pigtails allow an integrator to accommodate even the largest plugs and wall warts.
- Auto-reboot a network from a structured wiring can or behind a smart TV.
- Reboot CCTV recorders remotely or create a control system command to power cycle an auditorium DSP.
- Program a workstation, POS system, or other energy-hogging systems to power down at night.
This isn’t your basic IoT device. Whether you’re connecting to a Wi-Fi or a wired LAN connection, the WattBox 250-IPW is designed to power and control everything from a frozen video streaming device or a non-responsive network video recorder to hard-to-reach equipment in a conference room credenza. Take control of the two most critical components on every site – the modem and router – to automatically restore connectivity and get your client back online.
Control System Integration & NEW IP WattBox API
The WattBox 250 Series devices are compatible with the industry’s most popular control systems, including Control4, Crestron, Elan, RTI, and URC, allowing you to untap features like discreet on and off control for each outlet. We’ve even added a next-generation Telnet API that lets you program unique features into your system or create custom solutions to deploy and monitor WattBox products across thousands of sites. With Telnet API, you can integrate with any third-party control system, monitoring platform, or other custom solutions.
Three Ways to Prevent Service Calls & Truck Rolls
This WattBox provides three lines of defense to fix problems and reduce service calls. Combine WattBox’s scheduling and auto-reboot feature with OvrC remote management and an end-user app, and you have an iron-clad solution built for integrators. Simply put, no other remote management system comes close to what WattBox and OvrC can do.
Self-Healing Auto Reboot
WattBox power products are uniquely designed to fix themselves without any outside intervention, helping to prevent service calls and dealer troubleshooting. The unit continuously monitors connectivity and when the connection is lost, it automatically reboots the troubled device as programmed. You can even schedule regular reboots through the local UI or OvrC platform.
OvrC Home is a free client-facing mobile app included with all WattBox IP products that allows the end user to fix small problems on their own. Through this intuitive app, they’ll be able to reset any device connected to individual WattBox outlets and use macros to execute a series of commands that you define. If for some reason customers still need to contact you, your company logo and contact information are easily accessible within the app itself.
OvrC Remote Management
Through the intuitive OvrC dashboard, you can reboot devices, modify configurations, update firmware and more – all from anywhere in the world. Plus, if a WattBox device goes offline or its voltage falls outside a safe range, OvrC provides you with a notification, before your customer even notices. Upgrade to OvrC Pro, and you’ll get access to even greater diagnostics and troubleshooting tools across our family of OvrC-enabled products.
