The equipments in computer rooms are complicated in nature. Many factors may influence their normal operations, for example: voltage, temperature, humidity, and the normalcy of systems. It would be prudent to have a monitoring system to prevent from unpredictable problems. Most monitoring systems in the market can only issue alarms in abnormal situations and then analyze the aftermath. They are also expansive and lack the ability for distant instant control. To tackle this problem, after our successful and practical experiments, we utilize GSM text messaging ability (i.e. SMS, short message service) and make distant monitoring possible. The monitoring system is established with a reasonable price that is well below current market. With this system, the manager/administrator can monitor the real-time status of equipments in computer rooms, send control commands through SMS and then get them executed to solve the problems instantly and effectively.
