Watchdog 1200 supports the IOE and Remote Power Manager X2.

SNMP, Email and SMS Alerts

The Watchdog 1200 can trigger multiple,escalating alarms if temperature or humidity fall outside of specified parameters via SNMP (v1, v2c, v3), 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 an additional email alarm at 80° F, add your third party contractor at 85° F, etc. Users can specify up to 200 alarms per unit.

View Charts and Graphs on the Web
 

The Watchdog 1200 allows active Web pages to display real-time readings and graphs of temperature, humidity and dew point in addition to data logs in standard format (downloadable as XML or CSV file). Graphing scales are fully adjustable.

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 the event of an alarm.

No Software Required

The Watchdog 1200 is simple to install and use, requiring no special software other than a standard Web Browser. The Watchdog 1200 connects to an Ethernet network with a standard RJ45 connector and sends data in standard TCP/IP packets. It is easily configured with a simple menu using a Web browser and can be password protected with three access account level types: Administrator, Control and View Only. Users can securely access the monitor by entering its IP address.
