Orro Pulse Remote Management System Unveiled

Orro Pulse remote management will allow integrators to remotely monitor and service clients’ smart homes while minimizing truck rolls.


Orro, creators of the professional-grade Orro Smart Living System, announced its plans for Orro Pulse, a remote smart home management solution for custom installers. Orro Pulse is designed to help integrators increase their efficiency and productivity when installing, servicing and maintaining Orro Smart Living systems and the devices connected to them. With it’s first release for Pulse, Orro enables CE pros to remotely diagnose and fix issues that would otherwise require an onsite visit – all from an intuitive smart home management dashboard.

“Orro Pulse supercharges installation and ongoing service of a smart home while providing professional installers with new opportunities to earn recurring revenue through service plans and subscription packages,” says Patrick “PG” Gall, head of channel development, Orro. “This first release includes incredibly helpful realtime information and controls, and we will continue to listen to our professional customer base to enhance Pulse to further make Orro the best choice as the backbone for smart home installations.”

Orro Pulse enables integrators to:

  • Diagnose and resolve issues on Orro Switches as well as integrated devices
  • Remote reboot any Orro Switch
  • Check wireless signal strength on any Orro Switch
  • Adjust settings on any Orro Switch

Speaking exclusively with CE Pro, Orro founder and CEO Colin Billings says Orro Pulse will come with a small fee to integrators. He recommends integrators use program to institute a paid service agreement model with their clients. If they choose not to do service agreements, Billings says the cost of Orro Pulse will offer strong ROI for integrators purely for the avoidance of truck rolls for service calls.
