Weather Watch

IT WatchDogs' Weather Duck warns of damaging environmental changes in server room or remote computer rooms. The device plugs directly into PC serial ports, its internal sensors require no power supply, and door sensors indicate when a door to a server room has been opened. Users can receive e-mail or pager alerts when room temperature changes, doors open or shut, or any of the other values -- such as air flow and water presence -- are exceeded. All data is available on the Web, and photos can be attached using the optional Webcam and software. Data is recorded every minute and logged into an Excel spreadsheet.
