Simple, secure remote lighting installation control and management, from any Internet-connected device, anytime, anywhere in the world.
Clients increasingly demand lighting programming changes to respond to special events or unforeseen needs. But once a lighting installation is up and running, making changes – or investigating issues – can incur huge time, financial and environmental costs by sending someone to site.
Pharos Cloud makes it easy to achieve remote control and management which is truly remote. Getting access beyond the local network no longer requires additional skills or hardware, or accepting potential security risks arising from a misconfigured network.
Set-up of Pharos Cloud could not be simpler – controllers are plugged into the Internet, using industry-standard encryption. Once connected, users can access controllers remotely via the Pharos Cloud website, from any Internet-connected device, anytime, anywhere in the world.
Why use Pharos Cloud?
Here are just a few reasons why Pharos Cloud is the right choice for your remote management needs:

Simple, Powerful, Intuitive
The Pharos Cloud solution has been designed to manage and monitor Pharos controllers remotely. From the simple, yet intuitive user interface, you can manage all your Sites, add Users, set Permissions, see the Status of your controllers, fire Triggers and much more (depending on you plan).
Pharos Cloud is organised by “sites”. Each site can have one or more controllers and various users and permissions can be set.
Sites are linked to a subscription plan that defines its remote capabilities. All controllers in a site must be included in the same subscription plan.
Controllers that are part of a site can be at the same or different physical locations, but are managed collectively.
Subscriptions are available in 1, 2, 3 and 5 year terms with the first 30 days free!
Free – provided free of charge for all users and includes the ability to add controllers to the site and see online / offline status.
Control – all of the features of the Free plan, plus the user can see the complete device status and has the ability to fire triggers.
