Pakedge Device & Software P8 Intelligent Power Distribution Unit

MSRP: $950.00

The Pakedge P8 Intelligent Power Distribution Unit is designed to provide comprehensive on/off power startup and shutdown capabilities in a custom-installation or smart home network. The P8 provides eight AC outlets and has an Ethernet connection, making it ideal for use in smaller installations or where space is at a premium. Each outlet can be remotely turned on and off via local network access, or remotely via CLI (Command Line Interface), Telnet, by e-mail or by using Pakedge’s BakPak app for Apple® iPad® and iPhone™, Android devices and web browser interface. Each outlet can be turned on or off according to an automatically programmed startup/shutdown boot sequence, to ensure that connected devices will be safely powered up or shut down. The P8 has auto-ping self-healing and equipment reboot functionality. The P8 will ping a connected device every 15 seconds and automatically reboot the device if necessary. This capability saves the dealer a support call to the homeowner’s residence. The P8 will also send an email to notify the dealer so they can inform the homeowner about the correction of the network. The Pakedge P8 can be remotely operated via access to a LAN or via e-mail, giving users the option to turn specific AC outlets on and off and reboot equipment from a remote location. The P8 can be programmed to schedule power reboot events at regular intervals. It can also monitor AC power consumption and send a warning message when the aggregated AC draw from a system exceeds a pre-defined threshold. The P8 is designed for easy installation, with pre-labeled AC outlets and Ethernet connections. It can also be used with Pakedge’s 1U brush plate and 2U/3U cover plate for a clean, neat appearance. The P8 can also be used with the optional PTH10 heat and humidity sensors.



Features

The Pakedge P8 ensures complete control over the power of AC appliances. It offers a unique combination of AC power management, remote control operation and monitoring, easy installation and comprehensive control and communication capabilities. Each outlet can be remotely turned on and off via access to a LAN, by e-mail or by using Pakedge’s BakPak app for Apple® iPad® and iPhone™, Android devices and web browser interface. The P8 has auto-ping self-healing and equipment reboot functionality. Simply connect a device to a specific outlet on the P8 and provide it with the IP address of the device, and the P8 will ping the device every 15 seconds. If it does not receive a response, the P8 will automatically reboot the device. This provides “self-healing” network characteristics without the interaction of the dealer. For example, if a control processor, receiver or even connection to the Internet goes down, the P8 will sense this and reboot the device automatically. The P8 can be programmed to schedule power reboot events monthly, weekly or daily. It can also monitor AC power consumption and send a warning message when the aggregated AC draw from a system exceeds a pre-defined threshold. Like all Pakedge products, the P8 is designed for easy installation, with pre-labeled AC outlets and Ethernet connections. It is rack- and wall-mountable and can be used with Pakedge’s new 1U brush plate and 2U/3U cover plate, for a clean, neat appearance with aesthetics that complement A/V installations. The P8 can also be used with the optional PTH10 heat and humidity sensors.

K64U Pre-Configured Gigabit Router and Power over Ethernet Switch Kit

The Pakedge K64U Preconfigured, Multi-VLAN, Gigabit Router and Power over Ethernet Switch Kit provides the highest levels of custom-installation home networking performance, along with easy installation and robust security.

BakPak

The Pakedge BakPak app enables an iPad®, iPhone™, Android device or web browser to configure Pakedge products, monitor Pakedge and other manufacturers’ devices, control system-wide power and enable automatic system status notifications all via the cloud. The BakPak mobile app allows management of all IP devices on a network from the cloud. BakPak works with the Pakedge NP36 Cloud Appliance to deliver this performance. BakPak is capable of monitoring multiple installations and provides mobile alerts – allowing a dealer to find and repair problems before they’re ever discovered by the end-user. BakPak’s “killer app” feature — the ability to add and monitor third-party devices — enables dealers to be fully aware of users’ networks at all times, all from a free app. BakPak enables a mobile device to remotely power cycle the PoE ports on Pakedge switches and power distribution units and remotely monitor Pakedge and other manufacturers’ devices. The app lets also installers add multiple jobs/locations to their project databases, with multiple devices per location. Systems integrators can store all their device profiles and settings on their mobile device for immediate access wherever they go. They can also back up all their profiles and settings to the cloud or a local device.

W7 Dual-Band Concurrent Ultra High Range and Throughput Wall-Mount Wireless N Access Point

The Pakedge W7 Dual-Band Concurrent Wireless Access Point (WAP) offers simultaneous 2.4GHz and 5.0GHz operation with improved range, data throughput and reliability along with greater configuration options. The W7 utilizes Pakedge’s exclusive Smartwav™ technology to “learn” about the wireless environment around the WAPs, and direct its signal toward client devices and around potential sources of interference. This allows a more powerful signal with greater coverage. The W7’s band steering can automatically push capable devices from the 2.4GHz band to the less-congested 5.0GHz band for improved performance. It employs Pakedge’s TruStream™ technology to provide best-quality streaming media performance. TruStream allows the W7 to prioritize network traffic and ensure that high-priority traffic like streaming video or VoIP is given precedence. The Pakedge W7 is optimized for use with smartphones, tablets, laptops and home control devices. Its SectorMaxx™ software takes a new approach to handling environmental wireless “noise.” SectorMaxx optimizes the device’s signal-to-noise ratio, yielding up to three times the broadcast range of traditional wireless access points. The W7 integrates with the Pakedge BakPak™ cloud-integrated mobile and web app that enables reporting and basic maintenance to be done from anywhere in the world across any platform including browser, tablet and mobile device access.
