EventSentry offers a full range of environment monitoring sensors to notify you of environment problems like defective air conditioning, intrusion attempts, water leaks and more. EventSentry monitors the following:

  • Temperature
  • Humidity
  • Motion
  • Smoke
  • Water

EventSentry will generate an alert if the current measurement is outside the configured range (e.g. temperature and/or humidity) or if motion, smoke or water are detected.

Network-based Hardware Sensors

EventSentry fully supports the network-based HWg-STE temperature and/or humidity sensors developed by HW group via the SNMP protocol. The HWg-STE sensors have two inputs and can measure either temperature, humidity or both. EventSentry comes with a pre-defined performance/snmp package and MIB and supports both alerts as well as historical trending for temperature and/or humidity data.

Directly Attached Hardware Sensors

Environment monitoring requires hardware sensors which are available through our online store, if you are located outside of the US then please order hardware from our distribution partner PCMeasure in Germany. All of our sensors are high quality products made in Germany and come with a three-year warranty. The following hardware is currently available:

Serial Adapters

  • 30201: 1-Port Serial Adapter (connect one sensor)
  • 30203: 2-Port Serial Adapter (connect up to two sensors)
  • 30205: 4-Port Serial Adapter (connect up to four sensors)

Sensors (require serial adapter)

  • 30101: Temperature Sensor
  • 30103: Humidity Sensor
  • 30111: Smoke Sensor
  • 30114: Motion Sensor
  • 30115: Water Sensor

Combination Sensors (do not require serial adapter)

  • 30106: Temperature & Humidity Sensor (requires USB & serial port)
  • 30602: Temperature & Humidity Sensor (requires USB port only)

All sensors, with the exception of sensors 30106 and 30602, require a serial adapter with at least one available connection. You will not be able to connect a sensor directly to the serial port without a serial adapter.

Examples

The examples below should help if you are unsure as to which parts to order:

     
  • 1. Monitor temperature (and humidity) with a network sensor

    You will need to purchase the “HWg-STE Ethernet Temp Sensor” or “HWg-STE Ethernet Temp+Humidity Sensor”. You will also need one network-device license.

  •  

  • 2. Monitor only temperature

    You will need to purchase the 1-port serial adapter 30201 and the temperature sensor 30101.

  •  

  • 3. Monitor motion and smoke (from one computer)

    You will need to purchase the 2-port serial adapter 30203, the motion sensor 30114 and the smoke sensor 30111.

  •  

  • 4. Monitor smoke and water (from two computers)

    You will need to purchase two 1-port serial adapters 30201, the smoke sensor 30111 and the water sensor 30115.

  •  

  • 5. Monitor temperature and humidity (from one computer)

    You only need to purchase the “Temperature and Humidity Serial Sensor”.
