The base station for the NetBotz 500 (NBWL0500N) houses the processor, memory, I/O, and network connections, and also acts as the centralized host for all connected pods and add-on software applications. The Linux-based BotzWare provides advanced 'threshold types' such as rate-of-increase, rate-of-decrease, above-maximum-too-long, and below-minimum-too-long for numeric sensors, and error-value-too-long for door and dry contact sensors. Each sensor can have more than one threshold, and each threshold can be assigned different severities, allowing for custom crafted responses to different levels of problems.

The NetBotz 500 (NBWL0500N) Advanced View interface enables easy monitoring and appliance configuration. For example, if four Camera Pods are attached to a NetBotz 500 (NBWL0500N), all four camera images can be displayed in a tile view in the Advanced View, providing a single camera monitoring console. In fact, up to eight camera images can be viewed using Pod Sharing, a Premium Software Module available with the purchase of an Extended Warranty. Up to 24 hours of sensor readings can be graphed with just a couple of mouse-clicks. All alerts are conveniently logged on the device, permitting easy review of any pending and resolved problems for the last 24 hours (several months with NAS support). Finally, BotzWare provides the enhanced security of SSL connectivity to and from the NetBotz 500 (NBWL0500N) appliance.
