Manage 4.0 Is Live – Upgrade Now!

November 10, 2020
Enlighted

Today, Enlighted is proud to launch our new, renamed version of the Energy Manager. It’s called Manage and it’s available immediately as a standard upgrade for most Enlighted customers*.

Manage replaces the Enlighted Energy Manager, which was built more than a decade ago using Adobe Flash. We needed to make this change because major internet browsers will cease to support Adobe Flash at the end of this year. Regardless of whether or not you choose to upgrade to Manage 4.0 your lights will continue to work the same as they always have. The following parts of the Energy Manager user interface rely on Adobe Flash and will not be viewable in your browser on January 1st, 2021 if you do not upgrade to Manage 4.0:

  • Energy Dashboard
  • Floorplan Views
  • Profile Usage Report
  • Outage Reports

We also took the opportunity to make some exciting new changes, and we’ve updated and upgraded Manage to give it a fresh new look and feel. We’re sure you’ll love it, like we do.

A New Name

We renamed it Manage to reflect its broader role in managing the overall Enlighted IoT platform. Since Energy Manager was released 10 years ago, its role has evolved far beyond energy management.

The name change doesn’t affect any energy-related or other functionality, but it does reflect the broader, more powerful capabilities of the Enlighted IoT platform. Manage still takes care of lighting control, as it always has, but today it is also responsible for the management of non-lighting devices, device settings for non-lighting applications like indoor wayfinding and asset tracking, and even open APIs for custom third-party software applications.

Manage will retain Energy Manager’s versioning system, and will include a new user interface technology stack with a new, modern look and feel.

Upgrade Now!

Please upgrade as soon as possible. All major internet browsers will discontinue Flash support at the end of 2020. While current lighting operation won’t be affected by these changes, it’s important to install the update by the end of this year to ensure uninterrupted access.

Manage comes as a standard upgrade for most Enlighted customers*:

  • Visit the Enlighted support portal for a technical Q&A and release components related to the upgrade.
  • Contact Enlighted Support for help and upgrade options. This is especially important for Enlighted customers with MSI Energy Managers, typically purchased in 2015 and earlier.
  • Enlighted will provide an additional point release incorporating beta customer feedback, minor UI improvements, and support for the Ubuntu 18.04 operating system before the end of the year.

We hope you enjoy using the new Manage as much as we enjoyed redesigning it!
