BlueBOLT Remote Power & Energy Management: The Panamax
BlueBOLT SP-1000 SmartPlug is part of BlueBOLT's remote power & energy
management system that 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 source.
BlueBOLT Gateway (sold separately): The BlueBOLT SP-1000
SmartPlug connects to the BlueBOLT BB-ZB1 Gateway (299BBZB1,
sold separately) to create a wireless mesh network supporting up to fifteen
SP-1000 SmartPlugs. The BlueBOLT SP-1000 SmartPlug works with the BB-ZB1 Gateway
(sold separately), to control and monitor household energy usage from anywhere,
anytime with your smartphone, tablet, or computer.
Note: The BB-ZB BlueBOLT Gateway (sold separately) may require a firmware
update to support the SP-1000 SmartPlug. Please ensure that the BB-ZB1 is
running firmware version 1.1 or later before installing the SP-1000.
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 SP-1000
SmartPlugs and the BB-ZB1 Gateway (sold separately).
Integration Commands: For integrators, BlueBOLT reduces service calls through remote control of the
SP-1000's two AC outlets, the BB-ZB1 Gateway (sold separately), your home
network, and the Internet by automatically
rebooting network equipment. In addition, the platform provides real-time and
historical power-related data, including energy consumption in kWh and dollars.
This data allows installers to categorize and track their clients' energy usage
in residential and commercial settings, and schedule conservation commands to
power-down equipment during planned downtime, thereby eliminating wasted power
and lowering utility bills.
- Off-Site Reboot: The combination of the BlueBOLT SP-1000
SmartPlug and the BB-ZB1 Gateway (sold separately) allows you to hard-reboot
problem electronics remotely that are plugged into the SP-1000 SmartPlug. 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 SP-1000 SmartPlug 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 combination of the
BlueBOLT SP-1000 SmartPlug and the BB-ZB1 Gateway (sold separately) 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 identified 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 SP-1000 SmartPlug during
non-use hours, providing the perfect solution to reducing the cost of your
Two AC Outlets w/ Right-Angle AC Plug: The SP-1000 SmartPlug
features two 3-prong AC outlets; one outlet is on the front and the other outlet
is on the bottom. These outlets can accommodate different style plugs or
transformers. The Panamax SP-1000 SmartPlug then features an integrated
right-angle 3-prong AC plug which plugs directly into an AC wall outlet.
Note: The Two AC outlets are on the same circuit; both outlets are either
On or Off at the same time.
