For those who want to “Stay Connected and Take Control” of anything anywhere, including their network and IP devices, VideogeniX has introduced uSwitchPro™. This is an advanced version of its popular uSwitch™ 2 channel IP relay, which comes with a new design and adds user-customisable GPIO inputs and the ability to activate other uSwitch IP relays locally or remotely on any network.
Automatically builds a control web page
Simple to use, uSwitchPro automatically builds a control web page, is password protected and can operate stand alone or be controlled via the Internet or a local intranet. Users have the ability to control any device over the web including modems, lights, sirens, doors, gates and cameras.
An Auto Reboot Ping feature allows uSwitchPro to automatically detect failed equipment and reboot or restart them independently without human intervention (even when communication to uSwitchPro or the device has been lost). This feature saves users costly, time-consuming manual reboots, not to mention communication outages, longer down times, loss of remote control and security, liability, and worst case, the compromise of sensitive surveillance operations.
An ideal solution for industrial, security and personal applications, uSwitchPro can be deployed for IP cameras, kiosks, web signs, cellular routers, servers, DSL and cable modems, RTUs, control sensors, Smart Grid and much more.
The new uSwitchPro can drive up to sixteen other uSwitch relays across a network simultaneously from a single control, making it the perfect solution for instantaneous lockdown applications with multiple doors, alarms or lights in multiple buildings over a network.
Removable terminal connectors
uSwitchPro provides removable terminal connectors for simple wiring and two electromechanical relays that are rated up to 220 volts at 5 amps to turn on or control anything from anywhere through its built in web browser interface.
In addition to computers and iPads, uSwitchPro is compatible with Android, iPhone, Blackberry and any other smart devices providing remote control anywhere and anytime.
“This simple yet powerful solution to control, monitor and reboot devices is being used by Homeland Security, police departments, the DEA, the DOJ, transportation systems and much more. Applications are endless,” stated Mario Costa, Executive Vice President of VideogeniX. “That’s why our tagline is, ‘What Will ‘u’ Do with a uSwitch?’
“Plus, uSwitchPro reboots any network device automatically when it locks up or stops communicating, it saves time and money, drastically reducing downtime,” he added. “uSwitchPro pays for itself, the very first time you don’t have to send out a bucket truck or go miles to a location to reboot a device, eliminating the consequences of lock ups.”
