APC is known for its power and cooling products. Now, it’s going to have ihiji’s cloud-based monitoring solution as part of its lineup. APC just started shipping the ihiji invision INV-APP-500 network appliance, as part of a 2011 reseller agreement.
The invision system is cloud-based, allowing integrators to remotely monitor, service and maintain almost any electronic system. This includes audio, video, networking, control, lighting, and much more. For the end-user, it boasts improved systems performance, lower energy costs, and reduced service calls.
As an added bonus, APC’s lineup of IP-enabled power conditioning products is now certified as ihiji invision Ready. APC is also offering a slew of products that are compatible with the ihiji invision system, including the APC Smart-UPS, Rack PDUs, S20BLK, and the new G50NETB power conditioner.
“With the growing sophistication of electronics, many end-users want to protect their investments while also managing electronics systems and IP-enabled devices remotely,” said Dave Johnson, senior VP of APC’s home and business networks. “Our partnership with ihiji, along with deployment of our new IP-enabled power conditioners, provides a best-in-class solution that optimizes performance of equipment, protects sensitive components, and provides convenient remote access.”
According to ihiji, the invision INV-APP-500 is available for as low as $200, which includes the hardware and first year of service.
