Environmental Monitoring

Environmental Monitoring (1)



Protect against water and smoke damage

AKCP environmental monitoring allows for intelligent sensor to be connected to AKCP base units such as the securityProbe or sensorProbe series. Sensors are automatically recognized using AKCP’s AutoSense feature. AKCP lets you monitor and control :

  • Temperature
  • Humidity
  • Smoke
  • Water leakage
  • Air Flow
  • Security Sensors
  • Motion Detectors
  • Detection of AC Power Line Voltage
  • Measurement of Digital Voltmeter
  • Control Relays and more…




The AKCP base units work standalone or can be used with AKCess Pro Server. All sensors include an integrated data collection and graphing package; especially useful in trend and information analysis.

For example, spotWater Sensors can be used to detect water leaks from CRAC systems. Smoke Detectors can be used to detect the initial signs of component fires in data cabinets.

Events that lead to disaster can be used to proactively alert data center staff to maintain equipment correctly or to take corrective action. When events occur, the AKCP base unit or AKCess Pro Server can be configured to send :

  • SNMP Traps
  • Email Messages
  • SMS
  • Telephone Calls
  • Audio Alerts
  • Relay On/Off Signals and more…


Monitor air flow, temperature and humidity

An essential part of any computer room monitoring system is accurate temperature and humidity monitoring and knowing when CRAC units are on or offline. Rising temperatures lead to system failure, unwanted downtime and costly repairs.

AKCP’s equipment helps to avoid these costly errors with easy to configure, cost effective systems that are ready to run, right out of the box.
