BlueBOLT(TM) leapfrogs other hosted IP solutions by offering unprecedented ease of use through a uniquely rich, modern graphical user interface (www.myBlueBOLT.com) that allows installers to monitor multiple installations across multiple locations. There are no static IP addresses to obtain, port numbers to remember, or new ISP accounts to configure. Unlike traditional IP systems that require a dedicated IT professional or programmer to set up, BlueBOLT offers true plug -and -play operation. Users simply connect any Panamax or Furman product equipped with a BlueBOLT IP communications card to the Internet, and the unit will find its home server and be ready to use with minimal configuration.


BlueBOLT allows individual outlets or outlet banks to be power -cycled from any Web browser or Web -enabled mobile device - - drastically reducing service calls. For Internet routers, outlets can be assigned to power cycle automatically if an Internet connection is lost. As BlueBOLT -compatible products provide a wide range of remotely controlled features, BlueBOLT's modular nature allows multiple products and feature sets to be controlled using a single access point and interface. With BlueBOLT, voltage and current consumption can be monitored in real time or tracked over a time period. E -mail notifications are sent when power anomalies are detected, allowing installers and end users to take immediate action in the event of a catastrophic surge, brownout, blackout, or other power event. BlueBOLT also provides a simple and convenient way to manage energy consumption by cutting off all current to select components, thereby eliminating wasteful stand -by power in an A/V system.

BlueBOLT technology is available via an add -on card compatible with select Panamax and Furman products.
