Environmental Monitoring is Critical

Physical temperature and environment monitoring in computer / server rooms is a critical part of a complete Business Continuity plan. Your IT infrastructure supports your entire organization and without continued operation of IT resources, an organization may become unstable, suffer costly downtime or even go out of business.

The biggest threats to your IT environment…

The biggest threats continue to be power failure or improper cooling/heating that cause temperature and humidity extremes, inefficient power consumption or failure, and exposure to unexpected water leakage or flooding. 

The Solution to Keeping Your IT Infrastructure Safe from Disaster

Room Alert provides the environmental network monitoring tools you need to maximize your uptime and acts as key business continuity hardware. By monitoring factors such as temperature, humidity, flood / water leaks, power, smoke, motion and more, Room Alert monitors and sensors provide instant notification of any environment factor that could potentially cause downtime.
