BlueBOLT Remote Power & Energy Management: The Panamax BlueBOLT remote
power & energy
management system provides real-time, cloud-based control and monitoring of the energy
used by electronic devices. From easy reboots of locked-up electronics to
comprehensive energy tracking and scheduled conservation, BlueBOLT provides a
unique combination of control and monitoring directly at the electronics' power
BlueBOLT BB-ZB1 Gateway: The BlueBOLT BB-ZB1 Gateway
connects to a your home's network router via an Ethernet cable and creates a
wireless mesh network supporting up to fifteen MD2-ZB SmartPlugs (299MD2ZB,
sold separately). In combination with one or more MD2-ZB SmartPlugs, the BB-ZB1
Gateway lets you control and monitor household energy usage from anywhere,
anytime with your smartphone, tablet, or computer.
Zigbee Wireless Communication: The Panamax BlueBOLT remote
power & energy management system uses Zigbee 2.4GHz/16ch RF wireless communication (802.15.4) for secure two-way communication between the BB-ZB1 Gateway and the MD2-ZB
SmartPlugs (sold separately).
Off-Site Reboot: The BlueBOLT BB-ZB1
Gateway allows you to hard-reboot problem electronics
remotely that are plugged into a MD2-ZB SmartPlug (sold separately). These
electronics can easily be rebooted with the click of a button through BlueBOLT's
easy-to-use, cloud-based user interface, from any web-enabled device, from
practically anywhere in the world. You can even assign network devices plugged
into a MD2-ZB SmartPlug (sold separately) to automatically
reboot once an active Internet connection is lost, completely automating the
all-to-common procedure of re-establishing an Internet connection with a hard
reboot of your router and other network components.
Scheduled Conservation Commands: The Panamax BlueBOLT remote
power & energy
management system lets you schedule conservation
commands to eliminate wasted power and lower your utility bills. Standby power
(the power used by electronics when they are turned off) is often indentified as
one of the biggest wastes of electric power. BlueBOLT's scheduled conservation
allows you to automatically shut-off all power to electronic devices which are
plugged into a BlueBOLT-enabled component during
non-use hours, providing the perfect solution to reducing the cost of your
Simple Setup: BlueBOLT's cloud-based communication provides
an incredibly easy setup procedure. You can immediately register the BB-ZB1
Gateway and begin
monitoring and controlling devices plugged into your MD2-ZB SmartPlugs (sold
separately) from your computer, tablet, or smartphone; no static
IP addresses or port forwarding needed. The BlueBOLT power & energy management
system is completely plug-and-play, and does not require any software
installation. Simply plug the BlueBOLT BB-ZB1 Gateway into your home network's
Ethernet and log into www.myBlueBOLT.com to register the device. You can then start
using the BlueBOLT control interface through your web browser on your computer,
smartphone, or tablet (no separate App available at this time).
Network & AC Power Connection: The BlueBOLT BB-ZB1 Gateway requires an
Ethernet connection to your home's network router and connection to an AC power
outlet. The BB-ZB1 Gateway should be connected to a Broadband network connection
only (not dial-up or satellite).
Mounting Options: The BlueBOLT BB-ZB1 Gateway can be placed
horizontally or vertically (w/ included stand) on a stand, shelf, or table. It
can also be wall-mounted using its back-panel keyhole slots.
