How To Add Additional Sensor Readings To Alert Notifications In Your RoomAlert.com Account For organizations at the Professional level of RoomAlert.com or higher.

If your organization’s Room Alert Account has been upgraded to the Professional level or higher, you may add any additional sensor readings to an email or text message alert notification.

For example, if you have an alert set up to notify you if it gets too hot in your data center, you can also choose to display:

– other nearby temperature and humidity readings
– the active/inactive power state for the AC unit
– the open/closed state for the data center door
