Products works as described

Products works as described
Our server room has a spot cooler and a HVAC. The HVAC went on the blink and I needed a way to consistently monitor and alert me of high temperatures. So far after two months it has worked flawlessly and was much less expensive that attaching a temp gauge to he APC backup. I did have to figure out a good placement for the USB and set the temp -4 degrees to get an accurate reading. Thank you for that setting.

Good product, easy to setup
Plugged it in, installed latest software from site download, and configured email alerts.

My only comments for improvement are:
1. don't ship a cd with outdated software, make it more plug and play by auto downloading latest software.
2. allow more specific scheduling status emails rather it running on a cycle of when service last started.
3. provide more variables for email subject and body such as timestamp, hostname.
Really helped out when our A/C unit had issues

Really helped out when our A/C unit had issues
We installed a new A/C unit in our server room and the coil was defective, it took a week to get the new coil in and in the meantime our server room would heat up when the coil would freeze, we never knew when it was going to happen.  With the Temperature@lert sensor we were able to easily monitor the server room and respond when the A/C was frozen up.  Great product at a great price.
