Vertiv announced the availability of Vertiv Geist Watchdog 15 environmental sensor solution, to enhance data center monitoring and management in India. The self-contained environmental monitor enhances the performance of critical IT infrastructure by remotely monitoring environmental conditions in data centers, server rooms, and network closet environments, in real-time.
The Geist Watchdog 15 monitor cost-effectively enables the monitoring of temperature, humidity, and dewpoint, with capacity to add 4 additional external plug-n-play sensors. The solution includes real-time sensor data, sensor data logging and graphing, and allows data center managers to receive alerts and notifications via email and email-to-SMS when environmental conditions exceed predefined thresholds. It is easy to install and configure with a standard web browser.
The system provides continuous visibility of a facility’s thermal state, with a robust and flexible alternative to hardwired sensors and systems. Data gathered from the sensors can be displayed through a web interface, securely accessible from any browser or mobile device. The Geist Watchdog15 can also share data with Vertiv Environet Alert monitoring software or other third-party systems, via open protocols.
“Environmental factors like heat, humidity and moisture pose a severe threat to mission-critical infrastructure. These dangers can be minimized by incorporating an environmental monitoring solution to collect data and alert users of potential threats. Vertiv™ Geist™ Watchdog 15 environmental monitors allow users to securely observe conditions and receive alerts when user defined thresholds are breached,” said Priyaranjan Nayak, director, sales – ITMS, Rack PDU & Racks, India at Vertiv.
