Control4 has added BakPak remote management capability to all Pakedge WK and WX access points, as well as PowerPak PDUs (Power Distribution Units). Dealers will be able to  easily reboot devices, update firmware, or change Wi-Fi passwords from anywhere, without additional hardware or licensing fees.    

Available via a firmware update, this BakPak release makes remote management a standard  capability for all Pakedge  access points and PowerPak PDUs, unlocking the benefits of BakPak  for a wider range of customer home networks. Even the simplest systems, with a singular  Pakedge access point or PowerPak  PDU, can be remotely accessed, configured, and managed fro  a  mobile  device or web browser. 

An  updated mobile BakPak app provides on-the-go management right from an iOS or Android  device, and a new  web-based user experience freshens up the interface with a more intuitive  menu and navigation layout.     Control 4 - Bak Pak - Bak Pak UI With Zoom In On Options

“By including  BakPak in a broader range of popular Pakedge devices, we enable dealers to  provide  proactive  customer support and network management, for systems of any size, from  anywhere. The more homes a dealer manages via Pakedge networking with BakPak, the  greater  customer satisfaction and business efficiency can be delivered,” said  Martin Plaehn, Control4 Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Having removed extra hardware and software expense, every dealer can offer an provide BakPak service to every customer.”

All 5,700 independent authorized Control4 and Pakedge Dealers have access to Pakedge networking products with BakPak, including high-performance routers, switches, wireless access points, wireless  controllers, and power distribution units.
