How Do I Know What Level Makes Sense For Me?

We offer various levels of Room Alert Account tiers because there are many factors, specific to each organization, that will influence which level of Room Alert Account is appropriate for covering all potential threats of costly downtime and damage within your business. These factors include 

Asking yourself questions such as these will help you determine which Room Alert Account subscription makes the most sense for your organization. Our dedicated product specialists are here to help you find the best solution that is cost-effective but also efficient at preventing costly disasters before they unfold. It is important to reflect on each of the following factors, and more, to lead you to which Room Alert Account level best fits your needs.

Size & Number of Facilities

If you have more than one facility, or a large facility spread over a significant area or space, that means there are likely more times where one or more of your facilities, such as warehouses, are short-staffed or entirely unmanned. In instances such as these, you’re relying more heavily on your proactive Room Alert environment monitors, sensors and services to be aware of lots of different types of potentially damaging environment conditions. Typically with larger deployment, you need a larger variety of monitors and sensor options to fully encompass and protect all potential threats for downtime. The more registered Room Alert devices you have, the more capacity for devices you’ll need on your Room Alert Account.

Size of Your Team

Ask yourself “How many people on my team need access to our sensor data or need to receive alert notifications?” Understanding how many people need access to your Room Alert Account sensor data will help you best determine how many registered Room Alert users you need to effectively communicate and identify small issues before they turn into costly damages. 

If you want your employees to be registered Room Alert users, chances are you also want configured alerts for those staff members. Alerting is a way to notify your staff of certain changes in your environment, so they can be aware of a small increase in temperature before it causes irreversible equipment damage. If you have a sizable staff or chain of command for addressing any potential threats of downtime, you need to ensure all of those people are registered users who have configured alerts that will receive text or email notifications about the conditions in your environment.  

If more than one team member needs to receive alert notifications, we recommend a minimum level of Professional so you have access to Advanced Alerting options including notifying multiple users per alert. Room Alert Account offers highly customizable options to combine various advanced alerting features so you can create exactly what is ideal for your organization. You can further customize alerts by configuring actions to repeat, scheduling quiet times, delaying actions, commenting on alerts and more. Click to see how you can layer advanced alerting features in Room Alert Account to receive the perfect, all-encompassing protection for your assets, employees and reputation.

Data Retention Regulations

Another huge consideration when choosing the best Room Alert Account tier is researching what data retention requirements or data history storage you must meet and are mandated to follow based on your specific industry regulations. For example, the FDA states, “An investigator shall retain records required to be maintained under this part for a period of 2 years following the date a marketing application is approved for the drug for the indication for which it is being investigated; or, if no application is to be filed or if the application is not approved for such indication until 2 years after the investigation is discontinued and FDA is notified.” 

Because there is such a wide range in data retention requirements depending on your specific industry regulations, we offer options in data history that are completely customizable so you’re receiving what you need. The majority of businesses are required to follow strict guidelines related to data capacity and environment monitoring with Room Alert is the perfect solution because there is no limit to the data capacity you can add to your RoomAlert.com Account. For example, our Ultimate tier Room Alert Account retains up to 2 years of data history. As stated before, if 2 years do not suffice for your organization, you can add even more data capacity. This is ideal if you’re trying to register more devices, create additional custom alerts, retain longer data histories and/or receive extra reporting.

Reports & Maps

Reports help you graph your sensor data in a customizable, organized, easy to read, and easy to share way. Depending on how many environment conditions you’re monitoring, and the size and number of your facilities, you may need more or less capacity for reporting. Reporting allows you to use custom overlays, share data via Public URLs, favorite reports, add a second y-axis, assign colors and more. Custom overlays gives every report the option for built-in overlays. For example, we have included the popular and helpful ASHRAE Recommended Temperature Range and ASHRAE Recommended Humidity Range report overlays. This is extremely helpful and popular for ensuring your facilities remain within the proper ranges to ensure optimal workplace conditions and maintain server and computer uptime. Enabling public URLs means users can allow anyone to easily view the details of a specific device, report, etc. in a read-only view. These are just a couple of the features that come from reporting in Room Alert Account. 

Similar to reports, maps are another way to visually display and organize information related to your Room Alert monitors, sensors and the conditions of your environment. Maps display the locations of all your registered Room Alert devices. Maps are especially useful for large facilities or multiple locations where staff needs to identify where certain equipment is located. When you click on a device on your map, you can see details such as 

  • Alerts configured 
  • Alerts triggered 
  • Connection status 
  • MAC address 
  • IP address 

and more. For more information about how reporting in your Room Alert Account helps prevent costly downtime, click here.
