With Smart-UPS with APC SmartConnect, Schneider Electric is introducing the only cloud-enabled uninterruptible power supply (UPS) for distributed IT environments that enables businesses, particularly SMEs with limited IT staff and resources, to proactively and effectively manage the health of their UPS systems.
It can also be used by managed services partners to deliver remote UPS monitoring for SMB clients, with integration with remote monitoring and management (RMM) solutions such as ConnectWise Automate and Kaseya, or via a mobile-ready web portal.
Available as a standard feature with select models in APC’s Smart-UPS portfolio of uninterruptible power supplies, SmartConnect leverages Schneider Electric’s cloud-enabled EcoStruxure IT architecture to:
Gather and send data about the status of a customer’s UPS devices including battery replacement, warranty renewal and UPS performance notifications;
Provide a secure, cloud-based web portal where customers can view the status of their UPS, accessible from any internet-connected device;
Send customisable automatic notifications, firmware notification updates and advanced troubleshooting support through an easy-to-use remote monitoring interface; and
Deploy right out of the box, with no configuration required.
