Anyone who has ever dealt with servers knows that in order for a server room to be safe it requires a control system - to control entering/exiting the room as well as factors of the surroundings such as temperature, smoke, moisture and movement. This also applies to the company I am employed in. The company has a system controlling entering and exiting the server room but no system controlling the surroundings factors.
Therefore, we have decided to set up a control and prevention system as part of this thesis to prevent dangerous situations in the server room. Our main goal was to create a system of warning against dangerous situations - rise or fall of the surroundings factors above or bellow the safety limit - through SMS facility.
To achieve this, we have developed an application, using sensors to monitor and control the values of surroundings factors, a controller application which is in charge of an Arduino microcontroler and a GSM modul, and a library which is in charge of communication between the application and the microcontroller.
