Could you estimate how much money your company has invested in your IT server room or data center? How much is your network uptime worth to you? These questions might be difficult to answer, but monitoring your valuable IT equipment certainly doesn't have to be.

You need a compact, simple, and reliable device to monitor basic environmental conditions around your network equipment. Without this basic visibility, it's just a matter of time before your investment in your server room is seriously damaged.

The TempDefender IT is a small device that keeps tabs on all the environmental levels that affect your servers, phone closets, data centers, and other equipment locations. The 8 discrete alarms on the back panel are used to monitor dry contacts, such as motion sensors, UPS, smoke detectors, flood sensors, AC, and room entry. Whether you choose the 8 analogs or 4 digital sensor inputs on the back panel, you’ll stay protected from these threats.

With its web interface, you can edit your threshold settings and view the current status of the room. What's the current room temperature? When was the last time someone entered the room? Get all of this information - right from your network PC.

Don't wait until your server closet overheats to start protecting your equipment. The TempDefender IT sends you alerts 24/7 to your cell or SNMP manager.

How the TempDefender IT can help you protect your equipment rooms from unseen threats:

  • Small form-factor saves on valuable rack space
