Server Room Temperature Sensor & Alerting System

I am looking for a quality server room temperature sensor and alerting system.
I am not looking for a "monitoring system / application" for individual servers and services etc.

The Sensor and Alerting system must be able to do the following:

Monitor the Temperature of the Server Room within given thresholds
Send out automatic SMS Alerts to multiple parties when there is an issue
The SMS system must use an Internet Based server like ClickATell so I do not need to be concerned with a Physical GSM Modem / Phone line.

Anyone with experience in implementing a similar system, I would love to hear your thoughts and recommendations.

    Accepted Solution

    I have used Sensaphone products for monitoring our server rooms and computer closets.
    Their Web600 product appears to do what you want.

    My personal experience is with their Phone based products.
    They have many products and options.   Their phone support is also helpful in finding the right model for your needs.  Purchase can be through sellers like CDW.  Not sure if they sell direct or not.

    These are what we use in our server rooms.
    They work with physical and virtual machines and the monitoring software is free
