Core Brands Launches BlueBOLT Mobile

New Mobile Site Provides Easier Access and Control of Cloud-Based Power and Energy Management Platform From Mobile Devices

PETALUMA, Calif. -- Dec. 18, 2013 -- Core Brands(R) today announced the availability of BlueBOLT(R) Mobile, the mobile version of the company's award-winning BlueBOLT power and energy management platform. Now live and available to dealers, the new site is designed to improve the popular platform's user experience by bringing rapid access, convenience and enhanced ease-of-use to handheld devices.


Accessible from any web-enabled smartphone, the site provides outlet control via an enhanced design, which has been optimized for today's wide range of handheld devices. The new interface introduces features such as location/outlet search and an aggregated outlet view -- allowing users to quickly access multiple BlueBOLT-enabled locations and/or devices to perform needed actions. Locations and devices can also be filtered to reflect recent usage, which is ideal for managing devices that need attention on a recurring basis. With the new aggregated outlet view, dealers can easily consult full listings of electronics plugged into BlueBOLT-controlled outlets within a single, searchable screen -- enabling more rapid access to installation information.

"BlueBOLT Mobile is a big leap toward making energy easier to manage remotely and brings significant benefits to our dealers, especially those on the go," said John Benz, director of power and accessories, Core Brands. "Our intent was to make BlueBOLT's most frequently used functions -- remote power on, off and reboot -- as quick and easy as possible to execute, resulting in even greater efficiencies for our customers. We expect our mobile site to become our dealers' favorite way to reboot equipment since it can be carried out so quickly, while our desktop site retains the full functionality for setting schedules, alerts, network management actions and more."

Available now, BlueBOLT Mobile can be accessed at www.mybluebolt.com/mobile.
