You will need to install a monitoring PC at the remote site to do this, with whatever system you will be using. Then you can connect to that remote PC or set it up so that it sends you alerts on the status of the remote site.

If the servers at the remote site are from HP, they should include HP CIM software. Other hardware probably include something similar, with those tools you can setup such a monitoring PC.

There are also some opensource apps you can use for this, like:

Since you want something running on the servers, you will  want to look for products that have Agents, like Prognosis.  However most products with agents can get very expensive, because they charge for the central software and then for each Agent.

Most of the free, or inexpensive, products are agentless and use SNMP to remotely monitor the server.   Which means a central monitoring server is polling the remote servers on a scheduled basis.
