The Watchdog 15 P is a compact solution weighing less than half a pound and sized to fit in a 1U space at 5.25”L x 1.75”H x 1.5"W, which is perfect for tight installments. With an operating range of -25° to 80° Celsius (-13° to 176° F), the Watchdog 15 P can be used to monitor temperature, humidity and other environmental parameters in a variety of applications including IT, telecom, healthcare, food supply and others.

Built-in Power over Ethernet (P) converges power and data in between the switch and the Watchdog 15 P, eliminating the need for electrical wiring.  Power adapter is provided for applications without Power over Ethernet support.

SNMP, Email, & SMS Alerts

Trigger escalating alarms if temperature or humidity fall outside of specified parameters via SNMP (v1, v2c), email and SMS messages (email to SMS gateway). For example, specify an email notification to one or more users at 70° F, add another layer of personnel to the email alarm at 80° F, add your third party contractor at 85° F. Users may specify up to 50 alarms per unit.

Interface Network IP Cameras

The Web page interfaces up to four IP cameras (not included), allowing you a quick view of remote conditions, especially useful in event of alarm.
