Cloud provides our customers and partners with a simple and secure remote lighting control solution for all their lighting projects. With Cloud, you can save valuable time and the financial and environmental costs of site visits with access to lighting installations from any Internet-connected device, anytime, anywhere in the world.
Pharos Cloud continues to improve with each new version, and this latest update is no different. Here’s a brief overview of what’s new in the latest version of Pharos Cloud.
In the header image of this post you’ll see Tana Bridge, in Norway, a project that uses Pharos Cloud for secure, remote management and control of it’s lighting. Read more about it here.
One of our long term goals is to allow users to control their Portal’s Sites however they wish. With direct access to our API, users are able to use whatever means they’d like to interact with their Site to fire Tasks, adjust Schedules and upload Files.
Once API Keys is activated in a Portal, users with specific permissions are able to generate keys which authenticate back to a Site. These keys can be set to expire automatically after a given period of time, or last until deleted. Once deleted, a key will no longer be able to authenticate a client to control a Site. Each key is given a name and is granted granular permissions, just like you would a user.
In an effort to make permissions easier to manage, we have adjusted the order they are presented across all areas of a Portal. When interacting with permissions after this update we’d caution users to pay additional care and attention. All existing permissions are unchanged, and no new permissions are granted with this change.
These new features are now live so customers and partners that subscribe to our Cloud service will see the changes the next time they log in – there’s no need to do anything.
