eGuard makes the administration of multiple (5+) eGauge devices much simpler. It is an ideal tool for organizations that need to manage large numbers or widely dispersed eGauge devices. For eGauge users, eGuard also functions as a performance verification tool for judging specific metrics from many energy meters. The system also provides a means of troubleshooting hardware and customer relationship management. For example, installers can tie a customer's contact information and other relevant information to a single or group of eGauges. Together, these features provide customers a wide variety of tools that simplify large deployments of eGauge devices.
