Peace On Earth & Peace Of Mind With Room Alert

As we enter the last month of the year, many of us will reflect on 2021 and the lessons we’ve learned. For businesses, organizations and facilities, you may reflect on how to improve productivity and overall success going into 2022. For thousands of businesses around the world, chances are you experienced some form of downtime this year. Even if your facilities had 99% uptime, just that 1% of annual downtime could cost thousands of dollars in lost revenue and productivity. According to Gartner, the average cost of network downtime can be around $5,600 per minute! Check out our Downtime Calculator to learn how much you ​​stand to lose if you experience unexpected downtime. 

Downtime, to any extent, impacts your routine operations and could put you out of business. It is critical for businesses of all sizes to understand how much they stand to lose if disaster strikes, as well as just how important it is to expect the unexpected. 30% of all downtime is caused by environmental threats such as temperature, humidity, power, flood, fire and more. The best way to give you and your team peace of mind against environmental threats is with proactive environment monitoring.

Room Alert Environment Monitoring

Room Alert is advanced and secure environmental monitoring that is easy and effective. Our Room Alert monitors, sensors and accessories are backed by our online Room Alert Account services and our Room Alert Manager software. Our entire Room Alert platform provides a complete solution to preventing and minimizing costly environmental downtime. If temperatures rise, flooding occurs, the power goes out, or extreme weather strikes, Room Alert will protect your assets, employees, customers and business reputation. Downtime for days, hours, or even minutes can lead to irreversible damage for your business. 

For example, say the power unexpectedly goes out in your unmanned facilities on a Friday night. No one is on-site to notice this, and by the time Monday morning rolls around, your business operations will have been down for days. Luckily with Room Alert installed, you and your team can receive notifications via text or email that alert you to the change in your environment. With this information, you can address the situation and take corrective action immediately. 

What if the pipes in your basement freeze due to winter temperatures, but later thaw and cause a leak? Without Room Alert, you would be facing flooding, as well as potential water and mold damage. If you have Room Alert monitoring your facilities, you can have peace of mind in knowing that if a leak does occur, Room Alert will quickly notice it. What if an employee accidentally leaves a door open to a room that is containing sensitive data? Room Alert will text or email you to notify you of this so you can promptly solve the issue.

Enter The New Year Prepared

Room Alert is an investment that will pay for itself after just one instance of saving your business from costly downtime. With monitoring options starting at just $195, it is easy and affordable to find a Room Alert solution for your business, organization or facility. A whopping 75% of small to midsize businesses report they don’t have any form of environment monitoring installed, while 40% of all small to midsize businesses close within one year of suffering from a major outage. Instead of asking yourself if you can afford to have Room Alert, ask yourself if you can afford to not have Room Alert protecting your business.
