Wi-Fi Connection

Without messing with external cables or complicated network configurations, and without opening ports on your router that can expose your entire network to cyber-attacks. Once installed on a specific computer, it will take no more than 2 minutes to have the PC Manager connected to your Wi-Fi network and working.

Errors and Security Events Detection

If your computer fails to boot, PC Manager can help you to determine the cause by analyzing the acoustic error signals emitted by the motherboard, and notifying you as soon as the error produces. This helps you to get the PC back to normal function in less time.

PC Manager can notify you of power outages, internet connection fail, or if the PC is being used outside an established schedule, which helps you to prevent your data and/or computer from being stolen. In addition, it can detect if your computer locks up or freezes, and reboot it immediately, or detect high internal storage usage (which may indicate encrypting viruses).

Software Environment

The PC Manager’s multi-device environment(2) makes it possible to control your computers with practically any internet connected device, whether using the website, the App for smartphones and tablets (only Android support, at this moment), or the Windows program.

Multi-User

PC Manager allows you to grant access to all, or a part of its functions, to other users which you specify. This will let you, for example, allow temporary (or permanent) access to the IT department, for maintenance routines.

Quick to Install

PC Manager withstands both polarities on all of the connections to your computer’s motherboard, which makes its installation possible in less time, and without worrying about damages to the PC.

In addition, all of PC Manager’s connections are detachable and fit only in one position, which improves the access to the computer, and significantly reduces the assembly time, as well as possible installation errors.

Quality and Safety

PC Manager is made in the EU, using top brand components (Texas Instruments, Samsung, etc.). In addition, all PC Manager units and accessories are individually inspected and tested to determine that they are functioning properly.

The PC Manager unit has numerous safety features, such as an auto-resetting fuse, optocouplers, and solid-state relays, to protect your computer in case of bad assembly or even in the remote possibility that the unit itself fails.

Advanced Functions

The PC Manager system gives advanced users and enterprises concerned with a high level of security the choice of either working only on a local area network (LAN), only via the internet (default option), or both at the same time. Selecting to work only on a LAN will completely disconnect the device from the internet.

PC Manager is available in two models:

PC Manager with internal antenna.

Internal antenna

Ideal for off the case testing and open-frame assemblies, like rigs, etc., without messing with additional cables or the antenna position.

PC Manager with external antenna.

External antenna

Recommended for most PC types, as the metallic case of the computer blocks the Wi-Fi signal. The antenna is so small that it can be easily hidden inside the PC’s front trim. You won’t even notice that it’s installed!
