AVTECH’s Room Alert Wins 2021 INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year Award

Rhode Island’s AVTECH recognized for industry innovation with their secure Room Alert PRO environment monitors

March 11, 2021 Warren, RI – AVTECH Software (AVTECH) is thrilled to announce that Room Alert PRO secure environment monitors have been recognized as a “2021 Product of the Year” by INTERNET TELEPHONY Magazine from TMC, a global, integrated media company. This award marks the third major recognition for AVTECH so far this year.

Now in its 33rd year in business, AVTECH manufactures Room Alert, the world’s most popular environment monitor for business continuity plans. Room Alert is made in the USA and proactively monitors environment conditions such as temperature, humidity, flood, power, smoke, and more. Room Alert is currently used in 187 of 196 countries by organizations ranging from thousands of small businesses to one of the world’s largest retailers, over 80% of the Fortune 1000, the United Nations, every branch of the US military, and many state and local governments.

Room Alert PRO environment monitors offer the same reliability and performance that AVTECH users have come to expect, with an additional suite of security and data privacy options not found in other environment monitors. Features such as HTTP/SSL security, SNMP v3, 2048-bit encryption and more provide security-conscious customers with peace of mind that their sensor data is secured on their network and their monitoring platforms. Banking, finance, government, military and healthcare organizations are all now standardizing around Room Alert PRO environment monitors.

“Room Alert PRO represents a major commitment to our customers and their security,” said Richard Grundy, President of AVTECH. “Being recognized by TMC and INTERNET TELEPHONY for that commitment alongside other major technology firms such as AVAYA, Comcast Business, VMWare and Windstream is truly an honor for AVTECH. Our users have come to rely on Room Alert monitors due to their reliability and performance. If a data center is overheating or a cold storage unit is failing, Room Alert can be counted on to send alert notifications so our customers can take immediate action and prevent costly downtime. With Room Alert PRO our customers have the reliability they need along with the security features they desire to help keep their network and data protected. Building those features into Room Alert PRO also allowed us to improve data processing performance as well, making Room Alert PRO the true market leader when it comes to secure proactive environment monitoring.”

In addition to Room Alert environment monitors, AVTECH also offers a wide range of digital, switch and analog sensors designed to help users monitor as many environment conditions as possible to help protect their facilities. Room Alert is a crucial part of any organization’s business continuity plan, as it allows users to fully monitor environment conditions in their data centers, server rooms, and facilities that can cause unexpected downtime.

“I am honored to recognize AVTECH with a 2021 Product of the Year Award for its commitment to excellence and innovation,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “In the opinion of our judges and editorial team, Room Alert PRO has proven to be among the best environment monitoring technology solutions available on the market.
