Smoke detectors for IT & serverroom

Press release from: Didactum Security GmbH

The IT and server room is one of the most important areas in a company. In most companies nothing works without the IT systems that are indispensable nowadays. If important IT systems fail, the employees often can no longer work.

As administrators and IT decision-makers know, every unplanned IT failure usually costs a lot of money. To protect IT systems from risks, anti-virus software, firewall and backup solutions are used. According to the long-standing opinion of many IT managers, the IT room or server room is thus sufficiently protected.

IT monitoring for protection against catastrophic events

Unfortunately, many IT experts do not consider that physical environmental conditions must also be measured and controlled when monitoring IT infrastructure. A professional solution for permanent measurement and monitoring of temperature, relative humidity, air circulation, water ingress, etc., is therefore relatively rare in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). If a fire breaks out in the computer system or server room, the resulting damage (data loss) can be very large under certain circumstances.

Fire risk in the IT & server room

Due to the high concentration of electrical devices in the 19-inch server cabinet, such as server, storage and network components, as well as their permanent operation, the fire risk in the IT or server room can be considered relatively high. Even a simple defect in a power supply unit can be the cause of a fire. The fire loads present in the IT rack, such as the plastic housings of the IT systems or the insulation of cold appliance and network cables, can cause the EDP or server room to be enveloped in a toxic, black fog in the event of a fire.

Smoke detectors for the detection of fire & fire in the server room

To ensure that a fire can be detected and reported in time, it is recommended that suitable smoke detectors be installed in the server room. The Westphalian provider of IT security technology, the company Didactum Security GmbH from Münster, offers optical smoke detectors and associated network monitoring hardware. If the installed smoke detector detects the development of smoke and fire, the connected network monitoring hardware immediately reports the danger.

The monitoring systems have important actuator functions in the form of an automatic relay circuit for signalling to the building management system (BMS) or alarm system. In addition, the network monitoring hardware of Didactum offers important e-mail and SMS alarm functions (via LTE / GSM modem or e-mail to SMS service). The content of the notification and / or alarm message can be customized with the support of Didactum macro function. The alarm card integrated in the German web interface, can the critical smoke detector via Live Sensor Mapping function even flashing.

Optionally, the network monitoring systems also offer a dialing function and an audio-visual alerting of staff via siren with integrated flash light function. With the support of a surveillance camera with day and night vision function, a video of the critical event can be sent by e-mail or SMS if desired (optional hardware required).

Monitoring smoke detectors in remote rooms and facilities

The network-based monitoring systems of the manufacturer Didactum work independently. The installation of an app on the smartphone or software on the PC or server is not required for operation. The configuration and operation is done via the German and responsive web interface. In addition, each system supports the world's widely used SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol). In addition to the network protocols SNMPv1 and SNMPv2c, the network monitoring hardware from Didactum also offers the encrypted SNMPv3 protocol.

If the smoke detector detects the emergence of a fire in the technology, computer or server room, the monitoring hardware sends so-called SNMP traps over LAN / WAN. The smoke detector is equipped with an SNMP OID, so that a direct remote inquiry via network or Internet is supported. This allows customers to integrate the network monitoring hardware and the connected smoke detector into SNMP-compatible building automation solutions and network monitoring software. Plugins for Nagios, Icinga2 and Zabbix are included. Network monitoring solutions such as OpenNMS or Check MK automatically detect the monitoring hardware and sensors from Didactum.

Holistic IT infrastructure monitoring

Didactum has an extensive range of network monitoring systems and intelligent IP-based sensors. In addition to the smoke detectors, SNMP compatible temperature, humidity and airflow sensors are offered. Water warning sensors and water sensor cables protect the critical infrastructure against water ingress and condensate leakage from the air conditioning system. Current and voltage sensors measure and monitor voltage and current around the clock. Safety sensors such as magnetic contacts, light barriers, vibration, glass breakage and motion detectors intensify infrastructure monitoring. On request, the network monitoring hardware of the manufacturer Didactum also offers access control.

Administrators and IT managers can obtain further information on smoke detectors for computer and server rooms in the online store for infrastructure monitoring solutions at Corporate customers and authorities from all over Germany and abroad can order the networked monitoring solutions and the associated intelligent sensors conveniently on account (credit check reserved).

Temperature Monitoring with IP-Thermometer
In many rooms, such as laboratories, server rooms, data centers, warehouses and many other areas, it is important that the temperature is constantly within the specified range. Deviations must not be tolerated in temperature-sensitive environments, otherwise important equipment, goods, medicines or vaccines can be damaged. To monitor the temperature in a simple and reliable way without having to perform constant manual checks, so-called IP thermometers have been developed. IP thermometers, also
Remote monitoring of house and building technology
In building services engineering, status and error messages are signalled via I/O contacts. Existing heating, ventilation, cooling and air conditioning systems report the current operating status via I/O contacts. In addition to maintenance messages, important error and fault messages are also transmitted via the I/O switching contacts available on the systems. These important status messages must be reliably transmitted to the building management software and also to the responsible facility
Remote monitoring of machines and plants via network
The manufacturer Didactum has developed a new product for monitoring industrial environments. With the new Didactum Monitoring System 300, business-critical equipment and systems can be protected in a holistic way around the clock. The Monitoring System 300 is installed on DIN-rail. On the main unit there are 6 connections for sensors. The user can put together his individual monitoring solution from the extensive sensor range. Within the scope of environmental monitoring,
Remote Monitoring of important rooms and systems
Production, storage, laboratory, technical and server rooms located in remote locations must never be left unobserved. Heating, ventilation, refrigeration or air conditioning systems in a branch office can also fail and cause considerable problems. The equipment and systems located in telecommunications, technical, server and laboratory rooms can be damaged very quickly at critical temperatures. If the temperature in the server cabinet reaches a critical level, hard disks can fail. In
