IT / Server Room Monitoring & Data Logging Solutions
Protect your IT equipment:
- Keep servers and IT equipment protected during nights and weekend hours
- Extreme temperature and humidity can damage your server or telecom infrastructure
- Get email, SMS, and phone message alerts to identify temperature spikes or AC failures
IT and Server Room environments require strict control processes for temperature, humidity, and water detection. A fully-automated monitoring system can help prevent overheating of servers, moisture/rust buildup on equipment, and flooding in mission critical environments like IT. We specialize in monitoring environmental conditions for the following IT applications:
| Server Rooms || Server Farms |
| Data Closets || Equipment Storage |
| Data Centers || Server Racks |
ASHRAE has several recommended environmental guidelines for server rooms and data centers, of which are focused on reducing energy consumption, keeping temperatures within range, and carefully monitoring humidity to prevent corrosion and/or static electricity. IT personnel can improve operational efficiency and quality control with timely access to environmental logs, integrated reports, and actionable alerts to prevent server room accidents.

Automate Monitoring in Server Rooms
Recently we had a customer write to relay his server room story. Brian Dykes is a Network Administrator at a Midwest law firm. He relayed, “Four weeks ago I started a job at a new company. During my interview, I found out that the company had a complete server meltdown and did not have a temperature control system in place. The first thing I did when I came in was purchase the USB Edition.”
The story continues, “Last night at around 9:00 PM, when the temperatures outside were still 95°F plus, I received an email that the server room temp was over 90°F and rising quickly. I raced into work and found it near 100°F and climbing. I was able to take action to restore cooling and save the company from another meltdown! THANK YOU FOR THE EXCELLENT TOOL!”
Many IT professionals have struggled with just such events. Indeed, disaster prevention is high on the list of priorities that data center managers and network administrators worry about, but feel they cannot afford to address. Temperature@lert’s low-cost, easy to install and use USB, WiFi, and Cellular environmental monitoring devices can bring the first level of defense to such companies at a cost most can afford.
Brian joins a long list of Temperature@lert customers who help manage business critical data centers, server and telecommunication rooms and find our simple, cost-effective, application friendly environmental monitoring devices essential to keep things running smoothly.
Prevent Overheating in Server Rooms
Being an IT manager
in this era of computing is difficult. Computer systems scale so much more than ever before, which can cause high temperatures in server rooms when adequate cooling is unavailable. This cooling is the most important factor in prolonging a computer system’s life. Maintaining the health of systems reduces cost and time while increasing the efficiency of various computer processes. Maintaining the health of the system also protects the data found on each server.
The Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission came to Temperature@lert seeking a solution that will alert all IT personnel when temperature fluctuations occur in their server rooms. This alert helps the WSSC determine the location of the problem and immediately send personnel to solve the problem before their precious data is lost.

“We were actively looking for devices to monitor the temperature in our various server room closets. The product we were using wasn’t working as expected. We looked at various products and competitors and felt that the WiFi unit from Temperature@lert fit our budget and our specifications. We were strapped for available space in the closets and could not afford to place a laptop in each closet. The WiFi unit is a great size and easy to install. We were able to install 40 WiFi devices in various server rooms. We had gotten an alert from the WiFi product and were ecstatic to see it work! We continue to have positive experiences with the Temperature@lert’s WiFi product. The best aspect of Temperature@lert, besides their product, is their attentive and helpful customer service personnel.”
