  • Environmental monitoring: Prevent equipment failure from a full range of threatening environmental conditions.
  • Surveillance: Detect and record motion, allowing a visual record to be paired with an access or environmental alert, which speeds root cause analysis.
  • Fault notification: Real-time event notification minimizes response times to critical physical infrastructure situations. Enables IT Administrators to reduce mean time to repair, improve efficiency, and maximize uptime.
  • Door Access monitoring: Detect access by unauthorized personnel via door switch.
  • 2-Way audio: Supports remote service capability through speaker and microphone inputs. Advanced Software Pack #1 required to enable functionality.
  • Adjustable threshold: Customize threshold definitions (multiple thresholds per sensor, scheduling, severity levels) to your requirements.
  • Customized escalation policies: Alerts are managed according to your escalation policies and received in multiple formats.
  • Event-driven video storage: Video storage prompted by motion or alert.
  • Password Security: User-selectable password protection prevents unauthorized access, authorized against LDAP and Active Directory servers


  • Browser Accessible: View the user interface with a browser. Provides quick access from anywhere on a secure network.
  • Enterprise management system compatible: Make device information available to your preferred enterprise management system by forwarding SNMP traps (events) across SNMPv1, SNMPv2 and SNMPv3 using the PowerNet MIB
  • Integrates with StruxureWare Data Center Expert: For management of multiple NetBotz appliances, use StruxureWare Data Center Expert. StruxureWare Data Center Expert surveillance licenses enable a single view of multiple cameras, rapid search and retrieval of video, plus 'tagging' of important video clips.
  • Advanced View client application: Robust appliance interface provides historic alerts, graphs, and configuration.
  • Alerts View: Easily review and correlate alerts. Provide context to alerts by attaching video clips, graphs, and maps.


  • 4 Sensor Ports for connecting temperature, humidity, smoke, door, vibration, spot fluid, and third-party dry contact and 05 V sensors.
  • Sensor Pods (A-Link): You can cascade up to a combined total of two NetBotz Rack Sensor Pod 150s (NBPD0150), NetBotz Room Sensor Pod 155s (NBPD0155), and NetBotz Rack Access Pod 170s (NBPD0171, NBPD0172) and up to a combined total of eight Temperature Sensors with Digital Display (AP9520T) and Temperature/ Humidity Sensors with Digital Display (AP9520TH).
  • Third-party dry contact sensors require the NetBotz Dry Contact Cable (NBES0304). To connect a sensor to the cable, follow the instructions provided with the sensor and the instructions provided with the cable.
  • Standard third-party 0-5 V sensors require the NetBotz 0-5 V Sensor Cable (NBES0305). To connect a sensor to the cable, follow the instructions provided with the sensor and the instructions provided with the cable.
