    Powertxt Duo SMS Controlled AC Power Switch (2-Port)
    Remote Power Control

    What is Powertxt Duo?

    Powertxt Duo allows remote power control of two independent devices over the GSM network (global system for mobile communication) reducing downtime of your equipment to a minimum. 

    When connected Powertxt Duo allows you to control remote equipment easily with simple SMS (text message) commands, you can reboot one or both devices, turn each device on/off and Powertxt Duo also sends an SMS alert when mains power is lost / restored. 

    Powertxt Duo is one of the simplest remote power devices to deploy on the market, it requires no installation, it doesn’t need any device configuration just simply plug the cables in, send a text from your mobile phone to Powertxt Duo, receive a reply and you are in full control… it’s that simple (or use the dedicated management software ‘EstateView’).

    Where is Powertxt Duo® currently used?

    • IT Support, Wireless Communications (Routers)
    • Digital Signage (Routers & also to turn the signage equipment off when not in use to save energy and prolong equipment life)
    • Data Centres (Servers, to provide intelligent power without having to power servers down)
    • Energy & Utilities (Various equipment at remote sites)
    • ATMs (Routers and Screens)
    • Smart Lockers (Routers and Screens)
    • CCTV & Security (Routers and DVRs)
    • SoHo (Various equipment, routers, servers etc)

    Why use Powertxt Duo?

    Powertxt Duo is not an IP product and requires no network connection to operate.  It is a true out of band solution totally independent of your network.  As Powertxt Duo requires no IP address or network access it is one of the most secure remote power access solutions on the market.  It has several security features; it uses a numerical password within every command, it ignores all SMS’s from anyone other than the pre-programmed users and it can only control the power to your connected devices it has no connection to the devices themselves.


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

    Sending an engineer to site just to reboot equipment can be very expensive and sometimes just not practical if that equipment is in a remote or secure location.  Powertxt Duo has a very quick ROI and can be used almost anywhere, it only requires power and a network signal.

    There are many IP power solutions on the market today however more and more companies are resisting traditional IP devices as they create more potential weak spots within their network.  Powertxt Duo is the perfect solution to reduce potential weak points and is much more cost effective.  Traditional solutions range in price from £150 (for a single outlet) to many hundreds of pounds, then the cost of an IP address can be £150+ per year and finally the downtime of the connected equipment & installations costs make it a very expensive solution vs Powertxt Duo.

    The running costs for Powertxt Duo are approximately £15 per year (for a SIM & text messages) and it can be up and running within 10 minutes. 

    Usage Examples

    Powertxt Duo can be used for many different applications within various industries, including ATMs, routers, IT equipment, remote support equipment, CCTV, digital signage and smart kiosks/lockers to name a few.

    If an ATM stops working it can be up to an hour before it’s established if it’s a power problem or a comms issue, this can waste vital internal resources and have a detrimental effect on service level agreements (SLA’s). Powertxt Duo saves time and money in two main ways; 1) reduces downtime by rebooting the equipment to get it back up and running immediately which equals greater revenue and 2) if there is a power outage Powertxt Duo alerts you immediately by SMS so you don’t dispatch an engineer when not required.


    EstateView has been developed to make controlling large numbers of Powertxt Duo devices much easier for the user than using a mobile/cell phone.  EstateView is a central management system (web portal) that has been specifically designed by Tekview to control Powertxt Duo devices.  EstateView allows the user to keep all their device information in one central location (e.g. all rebooting/power loss records), you can send one command to many devices, send power loss alerts as emails, many users can access the system, devices can be grouped and fields can be customised to each customers individual requirement/industry.  Please ask for details.
