SAVE UP TO 50% OR MORE! netLiNK is a revolutionary two-way Wireless Controller and Remote Monitoring System. The system is designed specifically to remote control and monitor site lighting and other lighting and electrical devices. Take full control of each individual fixture no matter how the site is circuited, and experience the most savings possible.
The Communications: • The base station sends and receives commands via a secure cellular connection between the cloud-based server and the wireless nodes. • The commands are distributed wirelessly to the node switches throughout the property on a secure 900 MHz mesh network. • The system monitors the electrical current of the connected devices and sends an alert when a specific device’s current goes into an “abnormal” range. • Using proprietary algorithms, the system is able to accurately determine whether a lamp or ballast has failed and notifies the appropriate parties with an alert. That decreases downtime and gives critical information about the devices to managers and owners. Benefits of netLiNK: • Typical energy savings of 50% or more. • Central command of all site lighting for entire property portfolios. • Retrofits into existing electrical systems. • Extended ballast and lamp life. • Reduce energy consumption during non-peak hours. • Alert notifications of lamp or ballast outages. • Real-time web diagnostics improve preventive maintenance and reduce downtime. • Tenant retention with improved light levels and maintenance. • Reduces operating costs, boosting ROI. • Typical ROI is <18 months. Features of netLiNK: • Individual fixture or multi-zone/group control. • Auto-rotation of lamp and ballast choices for even burn time. • Connect to Datacenter from anywhere! • Continuous System Monitoring (CSM). • Historical data and energy consumption reports. • Photocell override for inclement weather. • 24/7 365-day support via internet, email or phone. The Components: • The System consists of a proprietary base station and 1 to 500 wireless node switches. Users can dramatically reduce their electrical consumption and costs by precisely controlling the on/off timers of individual devices or groups of devices without rewiring the electrical circuits. • Each wireless node can be configured with up to four channels of control and monitoring. This gives each base station the ability to control up to 2,000 individual points. • Custom wall mounted nodes can be designed to provide individual circuit control, eliminating the need for contractor panels while increasing controllability. • The netLiNK system can take control of the electrical system without running any new circuits. 1304 NE 154th St, Ste 104 Vancouver, WA 98685 West Coast Office: 800-736-7991 PRODUCTS INC East Coast Office: 813-792-3527 A QSSI Company Visit us at www.duraguard.com!

Case Study - Large Automotive Dealership Anytown, USA Installation Date: January 2010 A new ground-up dealership utilized “state of the art” lighting technologies and control systems making it the ï¬ rst dealership in the automaker’s line to become LEED certiï¬ ed. The savings started when they speciï¬ ed the more energy-efï¬ cient 775W PSMH Natural White® lamps for their site lighting needs. This gave a 22% energy savings over the commonly used 1000 watt MH lamps used in other dealerships, while providing a visual experience of improved light levels. ROI Summary The dealership paired energy-efï¬ cent lighting with the Previous Conditions unique netLiNK Wireless Controls System. Now, not only 775 Watt Fixtures 190 are they receiving the beneï¬ ts of being able to control each individual ï¬ xture, notiï¬ cations of outages, and the ability to 320 Watt Fixtures 23 view real time saving data, they also drastically reduced their Avg.
