Background

Travel is a major expense for many companies employing field services technicians. Between flights, hotels, meals and car rentals, sending someone out to do a job is incredibly costly. ControlBright’s Remote Access solution enables organizations to virtually eliminate truck rolls and allow technicians to manage devices remotely.

The platform is compatible with most IP-based devices and controllers. Whether you’re a lighting OEM, industrial controls rep agency, or multi-national corporation, the ControlBright approach is flexible enough to work in most installation environments throughout the world.

Using a cellular modem (called a Football) and our unique cloud-based portal, technicians can manage multiple sites using a single VPN client config. For IoT applications, organizations can leverage our VPN API to push/pull information from hundreds or thousands of devices in the field, simultaneously.

Frequently Asked Questions

What's the difference between ControlBright and other remote access solutions?
The biggest difference between ControlBright and other solutions is our unique VPN infrastructure. You do NOT need to worry about overlapping subnets, in fact every one of your controllers can use the SAME IP! This reduces deployment complexity significantly. Additionally, only a single user VPN is required to connect to any site under your account.
How do you handle tech support?
We offer free, US-based technical support for our hardware and portal. If there are installation or implementation questions outside our purview, we will provide a best effort response. Sometimes it just helps to bounce ideas off of someone else!
Do you work with "X" or "Y" controller?

The answer is usually YES, we work with just about any IP-based controller or device.

Do you offer user access controls?
We have a fairly sophisticated ACL system in place that allows users to provide various levels of access to remote sites. For example, OEM’s can setup sub-organizations so their agents/customers can ONLY access their devices. However, because the OEM is at a higher level, they STILL have access to those devices.
What is the warranty on your hardware?
We offer a perpetual warranty on any device under contract. If it should fail in the field, we will either repair or replace it, free of charge.
