RAPID ELS is a new emergency lighting management server from CP Electronics, a Legrand brand, that simplifies emergency lighting control in single and multi-site buildings. Among the many benefits, users are able to view the live status of section of a building, schedule regular lighting tasks, generate a results log and organise staff tasks remotely.
Developed for those looking for efficiencies over multiple teams and sites over long distances, it is ideal for organisations with remote working or mobile teams. Accessible via computers, smartphones, or tablets from any location, assessments can be made – and materials prepared – before visiting sites, saving time and minimising further visits.
With facilities managers often accountable for multiple buildings on different sites, time-saving solutions for testing and maintenance are in high demand, as Wai Cheung, Senior Product Manager at CP Electronics, explains:
“We have introduced RAPID ELS with convenience in mind. Facilities managers have immediate access to their data and full confidence that all emergency lighting is compliant and functioning. Thanks to its web browser access, mobile devices can be used when performing any diagnostics and repairs, allowing users to observe the physical behaviour of each light as it is being worked on and make instant changes.
“A solution like RAPID ELS, which offers secure tenant split access, puts the control in the hands of facilities managers, who can supply specific data without complications.”
The solution deploys standard internet protocol communication methods, which are typical of most IT departments and widely employed across the industry, delivering secure communication over HTTPS using TLS encryption.
