Sensaphone®’s Infrastructure Monitoring System (IMS) 4000 system system provides low-cost, 24/7 monitoring of data center conditions across multiple locations. The upgraded IMS-4000 system features a web-based responsive user interface with a custom dashboard that makes it easy for users to manage larger networks.

The upgraded IMS-4000 system provides increased security and reporting features. New video capabilities enable many different camera brands to interface with the host to capture snapshots during alarm events. In addition, Sensaphone is also refreshing the system’s logos, labels and product literature.

The IMS-4000 system simultaneously monitors the data center environment and network devices with IP addresses, such as network links, routers, printers and servers. Each host supports up to eight environmental sensors to monitor critical conditions including temperature, humidity, smoke, sound level, motion, water leaks, intrusion and power outages.

Users can expand their infrastructure by connecting up to 31 expansion nodes to the base unit. Each node can monitor eight inputs for environmental conditions or alarm contacts from other computer equipment such as uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems. In addition, each IMS-4000 system can monitor up to 64 network devices per host or node. When the system identifies a potential problem, it immediately sends alerts through Ethernet and telephone connections.
