 +===== DGLux Technology =====
 +The DGLux line of products and dashboard technologies are aimed at filling the necessity for intelligent data visualization solutions within the building automation and energy management space. Through providing a simple to use WYSIWYG editor to enable the integrator and end user to create and save custom views and dashboards for their real-time and historic data, while retaining the capability for ad-hoc analysis of the same data, DGLux is flexible enough to accommodate all data visualization needs.

 +
 +===== DGLux Architecture =====
 +Designed utilizing a 2-tier architecture approach (client-side user interface, and mid-level data abstraction layer), DGLux products can easily be installed on and adapted to various automation control systems and integrated with a number of standard protocols such as BACnet, LonWorks, Modbus, SNMP and others.

 +==== Kiosk Mode ====
 +Cycles through all available widgets in loaded views enabling campus-wide energy awareness and sustainability campaigns. ​
 +==== User Management ====
 +Fully configurable user credentials for individuals or groups to gain access to only their relevant data and views. Set permissions for users to only view and interact with pre-configured dashboards, or give them the ability to create and modify new and existing views. ​
 +==== Touch-screen compatible ====
 +All end-user interaction is in the form of simple gestures such as drag-and-drop,​ click, click-and-hold and double-click which makes the DGLux interface fully functional on a touch-screen implementation. ​
