Self-Healing Auto Reboot
There’s nothing more frustrating than wasting time and money to roll a truck to a customer’s site for a simple reset. That problem is solved with WattBox IP+. Thanks to its self-healing auto reboot, if a router, satellite receiver, or other device loses network connectivity, our smart detection technology will uncover the problem and automatically cycle the power. Plus, with OvrC you get real-time notifications when a WattBox IP+ loses its network connection or a device is rebooted. Watch the FAQ video on Auto Reboot

Remote Access + IP Control
For those times when a manual reset is required, WattBox IP+ enables you to cycle power from anywhere in the world. With OvrC, you can turn off a single outlet – or all controlled outlets – right from your phone or Tablet. Don’t have OvrC yet? You can still get remote access from your PC or Mac’s web browser (advanced setup required). And thanks to IP control, you can download popular control system drivers to get simple network-based device management at your fingertips. Visit the Support Tab for more information. See the interface >>

Sophisticated Programming & Scheduling
Advanced doesn’t even begin to cover it. With WattBox IP+, you can create custom events, like power sequencing for modems and routers, even automate commonly performed functions right through our OvrC web interface or directly in the WattBox IP+ Programming & Scheduling interface. Does the wireless access point act up over time? Automatically reboot it once a week to clear out any gremlins.

Notifications and Email Alerts
With OvrC, you get instant notifications of any events that occur – like auto reboots. If you’ve opted not to use OvrC, you can still stay informed by setting up customized email alerts. This feature makes it easy to spot failure patterns, or just stay on top of what’s happening with each system. With the ability to support multiple email addresses, alerts are sent wherever you need them to go.

Fast Setup
With OvrC, setup is nearly instantaneous. Just claim your WattBox with OvrC, name it, add attached devices, and you’re good to go. If not using OvrC or if static network settings are required, the supplied WattBox Utility program takes the guesswork out of initial setup. Once your WattBox IP devices are connected to the network, the Utility automatically detects them and provides a fast, intuitive way to configure IP addresses, launch the browser interface and perform firmware updates as new features are released.

Access Via Dynamic DNS
With OvrC, DDNS isn’t needed – you can easily manage all of your customers right from the app or OvrC.com website. But if you aren’t using OvrC or you do have a need for DDNS for a particular project, we have a free DDNS service built into each of our WattBox IP+ products. Instead of searching your records for cumbersome IP addresses, Dynamic DNS provides a permanent, easy-to-remember name that never changes – even if the customer’s home is assigned a new IP address by the service provider. Our free WattBox DNS service is fast and easy to set up, and it provides maximum uptime thanks to redundant USA-based servers located across the country. Popular third-party DNS servers are also supported. For more information, please visit the video support tab.

INSTALLER FRIENDLY

Installability is Para”mount”
Once an installer, always an installer at heart. That’s why our product team designed this power conditioner with a slim form factor and integrated mounting ears. Looking for a structured wiring can surge solution? Got you covered! The mounting holes line up with the tracks in our structured wiring enclosures for a quick and easy install. You can also mount it on the back of a cabinet, on a wall, or even under a desk.

Power Adapters Welcome
Bulky power supplies, or wall warts, can be a real pain to deal with during the install. We’ve oriented the outlets to make them easier to plug in when installing against the wall, cabinet, or in a structured wiring can.

PROTECTION & CONDITIONING

Noise Filtration
Sensitive A/V equipment is negatively impacted by noisy appliances and other electronics that create interference on the AC line. All WattBox power conditioners feature noise filtration that cleans up this “dirty power” to deliver the purest A/V experience possible. By lowering the audio noise floor and reducing hum, you hear exactly what was intended. Video performance can see an improvement too – with reduced power-related artifacts on HD displays.

Surge Protection
Surges can come from a variety of sources – from fluctuations at the power company to catastrophic events such as lightning. This excess energy can damage your connected equipment if not properly protected. The Joule rating is a measure of a surge protector’s ability to “clamp” this excess energy down to a safe level – the higher the rating, the more protection your equipment has.

Fireproof MOVs
MOVs, or Metal Oxide Varistors, are surge protection components that dissipate excess energy in the form of heat. Under extreme conditions, lower quality MOVs can get so hot they catch on fire! WattBox power conditioners feature ceramic-encased MOVs to protect not only your system but your home as well.

AC Disconnect
As an added precaution, in the event of a catastrophic spike, a thermal fuse completely disconnects AC power from your system to stop the surge in its tracks before it can get to your connected equipment. All three “legs” of the power (hot, neutral and ground) will disconnect for unsurpassed equipment protection.

Coax, Telephone/Ethernet Protection
Not only can surges creep in on the power, but also telephone, coax and network cables. Jacks for RJ11 or RJ45 connections are provided with full protection on all 8 pins for telephone and Ethernet applications. Today’s sophisticated HD cable and satellite systems have higher bandwidth requirements than they did even a few years ago. Our 3 GHz coax connections not only protect you against surge, but they deliver premium signal quality with less than 1 dB of attenuation. Pass-through voltage is supported for satellite systems.

GENERAL

Always-On Outlets
Perfect for critical components like DVRs, network switches or control systems, one of this power conditioner’s three outlets is always on to ensure its ready whenever you need it.

Flexible Power Cable
Bulky power cables can cause all sorts of frustration when installing in a cabinet or rack. This WattBox 200-series power conditioner includes a 4 ft, detachable IEC cord that is super-flexible for easy wire management. The connector is gold plated to resist corrosion and minimize loss. There’s also a locking clip to prevent accidental removal. For custom lengths, replacement cordsare available from 6 inches long up to 15 feet.

Cord Labels
Pick a card, any card. Sometimes it can feel like a guessing game when you’re servicing equipment and trying to figure out which outlet goes to what piece of gear. To prevent this, apply the supplied labels to each cord and know exactly what’s what.
