We recently had an issue in our server room where the power went out briefly on the weekend and when it came back on the ACs in the room did not turn back on. When I got in on Monday I found the server room pretty warm.
I asked who we usually purchase from for a solution that could simply monitor the room and email me when it goes above a certain temperature. I was quoted the following:
APC ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGER - $380
I mentioned that it seemed more advanced that our need. She told me there isnt much of anything cheaper than this as a self contained unit.
1) Is this a reasonable price for this item?
2) Is there another solution that might fit our need better and be cheaper?
Thanks in advance
