NightWatchman Features

Accurate Reporting with Credible Savings Predictions

Using actual PC (make and model) power consumption figures from a comprehensive catalog with local energy tariffs, NightWatchman builds a highly accurate picture of energy use, carbon emissions and costs by department, building or region. The accuracy of savings are further enhanced by using multiple baselines for a before and after measure of energy consumption.

*New* PC Estate Profiler

A unique new feature – the PC Estate Profiler – further drives down energy consumption and identifies hardware waste. By monitoring hardware utilization NightWatchman identifies unused PCs providing the ability to safely decommission them. In addition, it gives visibility into locations of those PCs enabling organizations to not only reallocate unused PCs, but also the associated desk space.

Safe Shutdown

NightWatchman’s user-friendly approach means productivity is never impacted. User data is always saved whenever a PC is powered down and will detect and defer shutdown if a user is still active.

WakeUp Features

Automatically wake and patch every PC

WakeUp uses Wake-on-LAN – to reliably and instantly wake up single or multiple PCs at any time. This enables you to ensure that PCs are powered on and available when users arrive for work, for support after hours, after a power cut, or for distribution of high priority security patches. NightWatchman and WakeUp together provide 100% patch success even out-of-hours.

Web WakeUp

Web WakeUp enables users to remotely wake their own PC (or multiple PCs) for access at any time through a customizable web portal or an iPhone/ iPad app. Especially useful for travelling or telecommuting users its enables users to wake up their own PC for remote access or can wake up PCs across an entire floor/ building ready for use when users arrive at their desks.

Supports secure environments

WakeUp is Common Criteria certified and the only solution available to support reliable Wake-on-LAN for computers on 802.1x secure VLANs.
