Computer Room and Data Centre Alarm System
How are you currently protecting your Data Centre / Computer Room / Server Room from Power Failures, High Temperatures or even Intruders?
We would recommend the M30 Alarm Autodialler as a totally independent and failsafe method of monitoring your data centre / computer room or server room. The M30 will continue to function even if you have a total Power Failure, Network Failure & your Phone Lines are down. The M30 is designed so even during a total disaster it will still be able to communicate the problems instantly to the correct on call staff.
We now have them installed in 3 of our data centres, monitoring the incoming mains both single & three phases, and even more critically the output of our UPS’s. We monitor the power output and also have a interface link into the alarm outputs of the UPS, so we know the condition of the batteries. We also have Alarm Thermostats wired directly into the M30 to monitor the room’s temperature allowing us to check whether the air conditioning has failed.
The M30 connects to both our Land Phone network and also the GSM network, so if the Land Line fails or is cut the M30 will switch to its backup GSM Dialler option and crucially continue to monitor our equipment.
We have recently just interfaced the M30 into our intruder & access control system as well allowing us to instantly alert security when there has been a breech.
