Open Source Server Room Monitor using Arduino

This server room environmental monitoring system is a low cost high performance device with the same onboard features as commercial devices costing hundreds of dollars more. In addition to a low cost platform we will provide low cost sensors for many important devices to insure your equipment stays safe and sound.

Full instructions are available at as well as several kits to create some very unique projects.

Step 1: Stuff you will need…

You will need a few parts for this build as follows:

Sprout Board:
Arduino Duemilanove: Trossen Robotics
Ethernet shield:
Rack Mount Chassis:
LCD Screen:
Audio Board:
Temperature / Humidity Board:
Power Supply:

Odds and ends, screws, glue, tools, etc…

Step 2: Putting it togeather

Step 1:
The assembly of the sprout board is very simple and requires very little experience with soldering. There are a few places where adding components can get cramped, but if you take your time it will be very easy.

Step 2:
Mount your arduino, ethernet shield and lcd screen

Step 3:
Glue the chassis togeather

Step 4:
Mount the board on the chassis

Step 3: Add accessories

Next plug in any sensors you want to. I am using a temp/humidity and sound sensors.

Step 4: Load Software and do a happy dance!

So all we need to do is load our software and do a Happy Dance!

Use this link so anyone can download the pde that will test the system. This also is an excellent framework to customize your application.
