How the sensor platform works

Mac Monitor playing a ServersCheck Video
At ServersCheck we do understand that not everyone likes to read manuals and that seeing is believing

This is why we have created a series of how-to video's showing you how our base units and some of our sensors work.



Enjoy the video's :-)

The basis: you need a sensor ①, a base unit ② (called the SensorGateway) and a switch ③
The basis of a ServersCheck hardware solution: sensor, base unit and a network



non-relevant transparent gif The sensor connects to a base unit (SensorGateway) using a standard network cable. The network cable tranmits data and power between the base unit and the sensor. The maximum distance between a sensor and the base unit is 10m/30ft.

The sensor connects to the base unit over a standard network cable. Max distance is 10m/30ft

The base units are stand-alone units. They do not require any PC or software to operate.

You configure them using a browser and then they just operate on their own.

The optional Monitoring Software enables you to centrally monitor, alert and store historic data on multiple sensors you may have from ServersCheck or other vendors.
no pc required for the ServersCheck to operate once configured

The base units connect to your internal network. Out of the box they do not require an Internet connection to operate.

It is not IoT unless you configure it to connect to the Internet.

When you setup a public email server for email alerting, use our Cloud, or our Premium Alert service then it connects to the Internet. In such cases the connections are initiated by the base unit and are only outgoing.
