The temperature sensor detects ambient temperature. It can be configured to send out alerts when the temperature goes beyond a predefined temperature range. The sensor is commonly used to monitor the server room temperature. The alerts comes in the form of email, SMS and SNMP traps.
The temperature sensor is connected to Varius Message Router via a USB cable. The length of the cable can be up to 5 meters allowing greater flexibility in the choice of location to place the temperature sensor.
The temperature sensor is tripped when the following condition occurs:
- Temperature is lower than a threshold temperature for longer than a predefined period.
- Temperature is higher than a threshold temperature for longer than a predefined period.
The temperature sensor has recovered when the sensor is tripped and the trip conditions do not occur for more than a predefined period.
The temperature sensor can be configured to send out alerts for the following conditions:
- Sensor is tripped.
- Repeat alert interval is reached when sensor remains tripped.
- Sensor has recovered.
The temperature sensor can be configured to send out alerts by SMS, email and SNMP traps. Multiple profiles can be set for each alert mechanism.
