Cloud Service

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.
