Just a quick post about my new APC Netbotz 200 Environmental monitor which turned up today. As I’m sure you’re probably already aware, I host my own computer lab in my loft at home which is uninsulated. As a result the equipment can be subject to very extreme temperatures during the different months of the year depending on what season we’re in. During summer, temperatures can easily exceed 40C in the loft and usually hover around the mid 30’s, while during winter on the other hand temperatures can reach as low as 2C in the loft but usually hover just below the 10C mark. It’s should become clear why an environmental monitor becomes necessary in this type of an environment and the return on investment it offers.
Product Highlights Include:
- Access monitoring: Detect access by unauthorized personnel via door switch.
- Environmental Monitoring: Prevent equipment failure from a full range of threatening environmental conditions.
- Fault notification: Real-time event notification minimizes response times to critical physical infrastructure situations. Enables IT Administrators to reduce mean time to repair, improve efficiency, and maximize uptime.
