Server Room Environmental & Security Monitoring

Monitoring temperature and humidity in a server room environment can be expensive. The Arduino is an ideal platform for this application, and with the addition of a Sprout Board, it's very flexible and inexpensive.

Possible sensors:

  • One additional remote temperature sensor installed at the AC vent.
  • One magnetic reed sensor installed on the door to the server room to act as a entry monitor.
  • One Smoke Detector with a built in alarm I/O port connected to our digital I/O.
  • One simple water sensor plate connected to our analog inputs.
  • One AC powered relay to detect City power Failures.
  • One solid state relay connected to an emergency exhaust blower.
