SmartLink Controller - Remote Control Lighting & Device Management

OutdoorLink created the SmartLink Management System (SMS) to remotely monitor device behavior, manage power consumption and reduce the need for manual site visits.  The SMS consists of a hardware controller and a cloud-based operating system that control digital assets from anywhere.  Commonly controlled assets include lighting, digital displays, WIFI routers, media players and more.

The SMS sends notifications when devices lose power and enables a remote reboot to restore functionality.  The SMS confirms whether issues were caused due to loss of power or loss of connectivity, which speeds up troubleshooting and resolves downtime faster.

Each SmartLink controller enables multiple devices to operate on different schedules and includes a Smart Weather feature to ensure assets are powered during inclement weather.  And with an open API, the SMS can integrate into other Content Management Systems for a full-scale asset management solution.

mid america outdoor billboards“We use SmartLink because it helps us to streamline our operations while saving valuable time and money. The system alerts us right away when an issue occurs, allowing us to respond in a timely manner. We love it!”

“I wanted to let you know how pleased I am with the SmartLink system. Since the units have been installed for a full month of power bills, my company has saved 30% on our utility consumption. The payback on my units will be about one year. This is like having another bulletin face in billing. Once the system is paid for I will see this cash flow to the bottom line every month from now on and we know the utility costs are not going down. In addition to the savings I like the fact the system tells me when I have an issue, saving from riding lights and only sending a service tech to the location that has an alarm. Thank you for introducing your product, it is ‘no brainer’.”

The SmartLink system alerts us to lights that are out, thus eliminating night rides.
