Control4 Adds BakPak Monitoring On The RK-1 Router And NK-1 Wireless Controller
Control4, a leading provider of Smart Home solutions, announces the release and availability of BakPak on Pakedge RK-1 Routers worldwide. The integration will be the first for the industry, enabling Control4 dealers to provide customers the benefits of a fully monitored Smart Home network.
BakPak monitors the Smart Home network and all the connected devices, empowering dealers with a sophisticated remote management tool. This will not only help integrators advertise their services on a higher level, which is a necessity in a competitive market, but will also ensure that they meet the expectations of every customer.
BakPak provides real-time visibility of network health and diagnostics, so problems can be eliminated, before escalating into a major malfunction. This will help dealers mitigate service calls, dissatisfied customers and downtime. The integration will provide the much-needed tools to manage the customers’ systems remotely, reducing onsite support visits.
Dealers will also be able to remotely monitor Smart Home products connected to Z-Wave, Wi-Fi, ZigBee and Ethernet. Push notifications through authorized mobile devices for diminished Internet speed tests and new troubleshooting features, including diagnostic information for Z-Wave and ZigBee signal strength is now available with BakPak.
The Pakedge RK-1 Router features a dual-core processor and CPU, so dealers can simultaneously manage low latency multimedia traffic, including uncompressed audio, running voice over IP telephone services and 4K and HD video, plus a whole lot more.
The RK-1 Router and Pakedge NK-1 Wireless Access-Point Controller are now available to Control4’ 5,000 independent authorized dealers. For more information visit www.control4.com.
