Proactively Monitor And Keep An Eye on Your Data Center

Vertiv™ Geist™ Watchdog Environmental Monitors enable you to remotely monitor a variety of environmental parameters in critical areas. Environmental factors like heat, humidity and moisture pose a severe threat to mission-critical infrastructure. These dangers can be minimized by incorporating a network of environmental sensors to collect data and alert users of potential threats. Get alerts when user-specified thresholds are breached. Proactively resolve issues to prevent downtime and equipment failure.

Watchdog 100/100P

The Watchdog 100 combines environmental monitoring with remote relay control. The relay output can be tied to alarm settings or
triggered manually. The unit comes equipped with an onboard temperature and humidity sensor, two Plug-n-Play sensor ports and four RJ12
Dry Contact/ 0-5V sensor ports. The Watchdog 100 provides comprehensive sensor connection options in a compact solution. It is shipped with rack-mount brackets offering flexibility for installation and wire management. Power over Ethernet (PoE) option available.

Watchdog 15/15P

The Watchdog 15 is a self-contained environmental monitor with an onboard temperature and humidity sensor. Equipped with two Plug-n-Play sensor ports, the Watchdog can support up to four external sensors using a splitter. The Watchdog 15 is a cost-effective and reliable solution for monitoring critical environments. Power over Ethernet (PoE) option available.


GTHD/GT3HD Temperature, Humidity, Dew Point Sensor Kit

The GTHD & GT3HD add-on sensor collect and transmit real-time data to protect critical data center and Edge equipment from heat and moisture. The sensors can be daisy chained together to simplify installation. The GT3HD comes equipped with two additional inputs for temperature sensors to monitor the top, middle, and bottom of a server cabinet.


Effective Monitoring in the Data Centre

Using a single Vertiv™ Geist™ Environmental monitor and four temperature/humidity/ dewpoint environmental sensor kits (GT3HD), vigilant monitoring for an entire server row is remarkably convenient and affordable.


Logging: Record sensor data over time. Turn data logging on or off for certain sensor measurements. Export sensor data logs in XML or CSV file formats.
Graphing: Graph sensor data over time to view trends. Graph select sensors in relation to each other.
Email & SMS Alerts: Receive Email alerts on alarm. Configure SMS alerts via Email-to SMS gateway. SMS messages are shortened so that you receive one text message per alarm as opposed to multiple messages.
SNMP: Support for SNMP v1, v2c, v3 with traps. Devices are compatible with most network management software such as What’s Up Gold, Nagios, IP Sentry, OpenView, Solarwinds, Spiceworks and other SNMP based software.
Alarms Escalations: Specify any combination of actions or recipients per alarm. Configure multiple alarm thresholds per sensor
Alarm Repeat & Delay: Specify a 0 to 240 minute delay per alarm to get an alert only when a threshold has exceeded continuously for the set number of minutes. Alarms can repeat every 10, 30, or 60 minutes until all measurements are back to normal.
Business Hours: Enable or disable Email alert notifications for selected recipients during specified business hours on certain days of the week.
Analog Inputs: Configure analog inputs by assigning a scale range to the 0—5 VDC signal to view sensor data in meaningful units.
Friendly Names: User specifies descriptive names per sensor for easy identification.
International Support: Metric & Imperial measurements. Customizable date and time format options.
Security: HTTPS using SSLv3/TLSv1.
Supported Languages: English (default), Spanish, French, German and Mandarin. Easily change between languages as needed.
Access Account Levels: Administrator, Control, and View Only accounts with varying privileges.
Plug-n-Play Sensors: Firmware automatically detects a sensor when connected.
Remote Firmware Updates: Update firmware safely and easily through the web interface.

Monitor Your Critical Facility

Hyperscale and Enterprise Data Centers

Hyperscale and enterprise data centers house thousands of servers and racks. These facilities require confidence that network equipment will stay online to ensure maximum availability. The Vertiv Geist Environmental Monitoring solutions offer user-defined alerts and escalations to empower users to take control of the environmental conditions around their critical infrastructure and prevent system downtime, hardware damage and data loss.

Edge Data Centers

The edge is more important and more complex than ever before, requiring an infrastructure to maintain critical functionality in harsh conditions. With vast differences in Edge applications, it is important to safeguard against uncertain environmental conditions. Vertiv Geist Environmental Monitoring enables IT managers to keep an eye on remote conditions to ensure an optimal operating environment for critical infrastructure, improving reliability and reducing the risk of downtime.
