What does the Lux Intelligent cloud service do?

The Lux Intelligent Cloud service extracts emergency lighting status and test result information from the Logger Tool, which sits on an internet connected PC, using the Lux Intelligent Synch Agent, and aggregates it into your own secure account.  From here you can access your data via our Lux Intelligent mobile/tablet app, or via your web browser.

You can also share the data from your sites and panels with colleagues, and generate reports for you facilities team, maintenance engineers and other interested parties.

The Lux Intelligent Cloud solution gives you reporting options significantly richer than those available through the Logger desktop application, as well as giving you real time data at your fingertips whether you are on or off site.

The improved reporting schemes include:

  • A traffic light status monitor showing you at a glance the status of your entire emergency lighting network
  • Ability to view current status issues by type, i.e. Low Light, Low/High Battery, Lost Comms, No Mains etc
  • View luminaires by Panel, Loop or Zone
  • Generate test reports, maintenance reports and advisory reports for a group of sites through to individual panels.


What is the Lux Intelligent Cloud Service

The Lux Intelligent Cloud service allows you to view and share real time system status and test information from your Lux Intelligent Emergency Lighting Test System on smartphones, tablets and internet connected computers.

It makes managing a compliant emergency lighting more efficient, convenient and cost effective and less time intensive.

The Cloud service securely stores your historic and real time system data and allows you to view it and interrogate it from site, panel and loop to device, from anywhere in the world, whether you have one panel or manage many Lux Intelligent systems across multiple sites around the world.

It allows you to share status or maintenance information with the people who maintain your local sites or systems. You can share entire sites or panels with partners and send reports from device level upwards.

What fault notification features does Lux Intelligent offer?

The Lux Intelligent system offers 3 levels of fault notification in respect of the emergency lighting installation.

As the emergency light testing panel regularly 'talks' to each light, it can report real time faults such as no light due to a failed tube, or a low battery due to a blown battery or battery disconnection.

Secondly the panel will report if a light fails a test, and will provide details of that failure reason.

And finally the panel also reports other faults that may occur on an installation which is not directly down to the lights themselves.  This could include the event of a local distribution board going down depriving a number of lights of normal mains supply, or alternatively a fault arises with the monitoring system such as an open circuit on the data loop.   As with the faults with lights, the panel provides additional information to help resolve the fault i.e. which zone has the power outage, or driving the data loop from one end to determine where the break maybe.
