    what enviroment monitoring system are you running in your server room?

    Hi guys,

    We will be moving the sever cabinet and airconditioning system form my office this febuary half term. it will be moved to a room that will remain locked and will hardly have many visits from my self.

    My boss has asked me to do a Disaster recovery plan (new to the job) as we dont have one in place.

    I'm reading up on it... we tick all the box's but one thing we dont have as its never apeared to be needed is a enviroment monitoring system.

    I need something that will monitor air tempreture, flodding and text no less than 3 mobile phones.

    suggestions and comment most welcome. would like to hear of experiences and what people have implemented.

    cheers gang

    Kev

    We have one of these, don't think it can send TXT messages but it does e-mails and I get these through on my phone.

    I send my junior techie in for 10 mins - if he comes out blue it's cool enough, red - it's too warm.

    Upgrade him to v2 to unlock the following features:

    Damp feet = aircon leak.
    Excessive coughing = fire.

    I've looked at the Interseptor on there but also just noticed today the AVTech room alert.

    For the following:
    AVTech Room Alert, includes 1 built in temp probe and 1 external probe
    Flood sensor
    Smoke Sensor
    Light Stack, audible and visual warning of fault.

    comes in at: £662.50
