Overview of Security & Environmental Monitoring


IP-based, active monitoring solutions that protect critical infrastructure from physical threats. Provides early detection, instant alerting, and historical record of: Environmental conditions such as extreme heat, humidity and water leaks Human error and sabotage Persons entering and exiting area and everything in between

a company of Schneider Electric

NetBotz appliances continually monitor physical conditions at the site


Each appliance has: Integrated sensors for temp, humidity, airflow, dewpoint, audio 4 external sensor ports for analog or dry contact sensors Integrated camera USB port(s) Expand capabilities: Sensor Pod: same integrated sensors as appliance, 4 external sensor ports Camera Pod Or CCTV Adapter Pod to integrate third party CCTV cams Software to monitor network devices

A Very Costly Problem


Problems
Rising equipment density
More heat, power in same physical space Stressing sub-optimal environments

Business Impact
Loss of Business Continuity
Lost Revenue Lower customer service levels Lost employee productivity Opportunity costs

IT assets broadly distributed


More vulnerable to malfeasance Limited surveillance capabilities Difficulty in prioritizing problem response and proactive maintenance resources

Theft of equipment, customer data, and IP


Replacement costs Loss of competitive advantages Customer/shareholder lawsuits

Deployed in sub-optimal environments


No environmental controls No authorized access controls

Loss of Accountability
No audit trails Inability to identify and correct root cause

Insufficient staff
No early warning mechanism

Thresholds
Analog Value Threshold Types
Minimum / Maximum Above / Below Value for x time Rate of Increase / Decrease Examples: Temperature, Humidity, Airflow, Current, CPU temp inside server

State Threshold Types


Alert State Match or Mismatch
- State mismatch: any state other than the specified normal state

Alert State Match or Mismatch for x time


- Example: Door in open state for more than 2 minutes

Examples: Fluid, Camera Motion, Vibration, Battery status indicator from UPS

Advanced Capabilities for Thresholds


Scheduling times when threshold enabled/disabled
Example: Camera motion sensor enabled on nights & weekends

Threshold Severity Levels


Failure, Critical, Error, Warning, Information Can set up custom alert actions to respond only to specified severity levels, e.g. a warning alert action that would log warning/information threshold events but not send alert to a person or console.

Cameras to Trigger
Specify one or more cameras to be triggered upon threshold events

- Only cameras under control of the same NetBotz appliance (including pod-shared cameras) can be triggered User-specified URL & User-specified Description
Provide information to alert recipient (e.g. alert console operator) on steps to resolve, who to contact, etc.

Return to Normal Delay


Specify amount of time that must pass after this threshold has returned to normal before the threshold state is considered returned to normal

Return to Normal Requires User Input Alert Profile drop box (if more than 1 profile has been created)

Two-way Audio
Use microphone connected to Advanced View console to transmit audio to a Camera Pod connected to the remote 500 appliance that has speakers. Enables central IT person to give instructions to non-technical user at remote site

Audio Capture
Record audio as well as video with alert camera captures

Digitally Signed Video Clips


Signed video clips provide evidence that the generated images have not been tampered with or altered, and therefore are more likely to be admissible as evidence in legal proceedings

Camera Block-Out
Configure cameras so that specified areas of the image cannot be seen (Example: keypad)
