SurgeX has introduced Axess Manager and Axess Manager Mobile, new desktop and mobile apps designed to let users monitor power conditions and control power functions of multiple installations from a single location. They’ll be on display at the upcoming InfoComm 2014 show in Las Vegas at booth C8725.
The new apps automatically discover devices on a network and allow remote management through an intuitive user interface on a desktop PC or mobile device. Axess Manager also offers enhanced management of all SurgeX Axess Suite products, including Axess Elite, Axess and Axess Ready products, allowing users to execute reboots, power cycling, outlet on/off, user permission management and more.
Integrators using Axess Manager to manage multiple locations will benefit from the single interface and the ability to uniquely classify and manage each installation. The streamlined approach makes it easier to identify power-related issues and allows for simple navigation and management of existing installs, especially when new devices and systems are constantly being added to the network.
“What integrators have been missing is an intuitive way to monitor and manage power across numerous installations,” says Shannon Townley, president, SurgeX. “Axess Manager is the ideal solution to securely track the status of all installations from a single screen, and immediately act on issues when necessary.”
SurgeX designed Axess Manager to give Admins all the tools needed to effectively manage devices and user permissions. A single username and password is all that’s required to add or access any device on the network, there’s no need to memorize hundreds of unique usernames and passwords.
Admins also have more control over users. Additional features include the ability to deactivate a user though a simple mouse click so they no longer have access to any install or device on the network. If there is an issue or unauthorized actions taken through the app, Axess Manager can provide a PDF or Excel report documenting all system and user activity to quickly pinpoint the problem.
As an added benefit, dealers can customize the GUI with their own logo and branding. Axess Manager and Axess Manager Mobile will be available for a nominal fee at surgex.com, the apps work with iOS, Android and Windows desktop operating systems.
