It’s Getting Hotter & Hotter…Be Sure To Monitor Your Assets with Room Alert

Last month, we talked about the upcoming hot and humid summer weather that we are all anticipating in the northern hemisphere. Proactive environment monitoring is especially crucial during these summer months because factors such as high temperatures, humidity and power outages can quickly lead to costly downtime. Unmonitored conditions such as temperature, humidity, heat index, flood, power and airflow allows for unforeseen circumstances to cause irreversible damage and disaster such as data loss, employee injury, equipment failure and network failure. 

Over the past several decades we’ve seen weather patterns indicating that summers are getting hotter and hotter every year. The data shown in weather trends demonstrates that environment monitoring is becoming increasingly more valuable to businesses who want to stay in business. Environment monitoring helps facilities increase uptime, reliability and the ability to minimize and prevent disruptions due to environment-related threats. A recent record-setting heat wave’s remarkable power, size and unusually early appearance is suggesting that factors such as excessive heat, drought and wildfire risk is going to bring an incredibly hot summer for 2021 and businesses need to be prepared! 

Every summer season should prompt all businesses and facilities to reflect on their Business Continuity Planning and procedures in place to address unexpected circumstances that may come up. 30% of all costly downtime is caused by environment-related concerns. Facilities that are protected with advanced and secure environment monitoring are taking the best steps towards ensuring extreme heat, power outages, flooding and severe weather don’t force them to close their doors.
