If you’re looking for a flexible solution to remotely track environmental conditions at your facility or workplace, consider a cellular wireless monitoring system. These systems use sensors to communicate their data (such as temperature, humidity levels, etc.) to the wall unit. By selecting a cellular-based device, your wireless monitoring system becomes even more nimble because it doesn’t need a landline or internet connection.
Remote monitoring systems are vital in many industries. They help operators keep a constant eye on equipment and environments to prevent and detect possible problems.
Many facilities rely on these systems to maintain operational effectiveness and to get a warning when trouble is brewing. Examples include public facilities, data centers, healthcare institutions, food supply operations and water and wastewater sites.
Damaging water can enter your data center from environmental events like floods, as well as from equipment failure, leaks and broken pipes. But it’s easier and less costly than you think to protect your server and IT equipment from water damage using water detection sensors. To monitor a surface for water leakage, simply connect an IMS-4000 water sensor and a water detection rope to a Sensaphone IMS-4000 monitoring system.
If you own property, an auto dialer monitoring device is an easy, cost-effective way to keep an eye on conditions like temperature and humidity when you aren’t on the premises. But it can also help you keep an “ear” on the area in real-time with a built-in microphone.
Critical machine parts like separators, cooling towers, blowers, generators, pumps, bearings and motors usually give hints they are damaged and about to fail. When a fan becomes unbalanced or bearings start failing, they start vibrating more. Although this change wouldn't be noticeable to the human eye or ear, it's easily detected by a vibration sensor.
You’ll never find a data center without systems to prevent hacking and viruses. That’s understandable because cyber attacks get constant news attention and everyone knows they can cause irrevocable damage. However, less flashy threats also lurk in data centers, and these risks are often ignored.
Maintaining compliance with government regulations recently became a lot more complicated for people working in the nation’s food supply industry. In September 2016 the FDA began enforcing the sweeping Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). Fortunately, new remote temperature monitoring technology can play a significant role in keeping food supplies safe and companies in compliance.
