UK, December 6, 2016 — tekview, a United Kingdom based technology company and developer of innovative mobile/cellular remote power solutions have developed a US version of their successful UK product, PowertxtÂŽ. Powertxt is used for a wide variety of applications, including ATMs.


How Does it Work?

When your equipment hangs/freezes have you ever been told by the IT department to turn the power off and then on again, well … that’s exactly what Powertxt does, it effectively performs a ‘hard reboot’ by turning the mains power to your equipment off and then on again (“rebooting it”).  Some newer routers now have the facility to perform a ‘soft reboot’ where they can reset internally but this doesn’t fix every issue.

 “It is estimated that over 70% of all downtime events can be solved with a hard power reboot.”

Where is Powertxt Currently Used?

Powertxt is used to control many types of equipment in a wide variety of industries including, Digital Signage, ATMs, Smart Lockers/Kiosks, Digital Analytics, CCTV, ANPR Cameras, IT & Communications, Broadband & WiFi providers, Marine & Aquatics, Healthcare for routers, DVR’s ANPR equipment, medical fridges and more.
