    Never looked at the CliMate kit, but the Goose stuff always seems to be the best price/features mix. Lots of US sysadmins on other boards swear by them.

    None at the minute. Was looking at one of the NetBotz units when we've got money though.
    I especially like how you can attach this to it
    APC Alarm Beacon

    Obviously I dont want anything going wrong, but a beacon flashing in the office would be quite cool

    Actually the Climate CM-2 does look rather good. That and a water sensor under the air con units would be good for our server room I think

    I like the APC card, simply because it can initiate shutdowns if the temperature gets too high. Monitoring solutions are ok, but if you have no easy access to the site in an emergency then it's nice to have something happen in your absence!

    Aah, Sir will be wanting our new and exciting "trip over the corpse in the server room" module. Also very good for testing auto-shutting bulkheads for fire suppression, even if I do say so myself.

    Oh? I thought it was the "the student that no one wants in the school but can't find a valid excuse to get rid of" module... Although by the sounds of it, this could be a sub module of your suggestion....

    Just bought a CM-2 Climate for us too. Damned good.

    Going to fit the anti-intrusion to it, and we have an Axis Camera too that looks like it'll work with it.

    CM-2 will be set for buzzer and mail, also will be fitting the damp kit to it as the Airedales in there are not something I'd like to leak under the floor.

    Luckily our office is joined to the server room, seperated by some soundproofed doubleglazed doors..so we're close to hand if needed.

    Is it fire proof?

    Im in the market for some of these. Need one for each server room. Want something that will do SMS notification, Camera CCTV, and climate stuff..

    Although we dont have APC UPS's , the APC NetBotz ones look good, got APC coming in tomorrow to give the lowdown..

    Anything else I should be looking at?
