Installer-friendly power distribution and protection

The Big Dog PR-R13PI intelligent power distribution unit manages and protects large, multi-zone systems, whether it's for your business, your place of worship, or even an extensive custom-installed home audio/video system. Its 13 filtered and surge-protected outlets safeguard your valuable A/V gear from voltage fluctuations, while delivering clean power for optimal performance. A pair of USB Type-A ports, one front and one rear, give you convenient device charging.

App-based remote management and control

The PR-R13PI connects to your network via wired Ethernet or Wi-Fi. That lets you use Metra's MAVbase web and mobile app for remote monitoring and individual control of each of the 12 rear-panel AC outlets. The app tracks the remaining health of the unit's two replaceable surge modules—rather than replacing the whole unit, you can simply swap in new modules when their remaining protection gets low.

Smart installation options

Four thermostats built into the unit let you track the temperature of your equipment within the app, turning devices off or turning fans on when a certain threshold is reached. "Self-healing" functions for network-connected equipment automatically reset power going to the outlet. Installers save time by monitoring remotely and adjusting settings as problems arise, lessening the chance of service calls.
