HWg IP Watchdog 2 Lite
IP WatchDog2 Lite monitors the availability of one or two LAN devices and automatically restarts them in case of failure. Unresponsive device (router, IP camera, WiFi AP, etc.) is detected by unavailable Web interface or no reply to PING. In such a case, IP WatchDog2 can reset the device and also alert the operator by e-mail or text message (SMS).
IP WatchDog2 Lite periodically asks the monitored device to respond. For example, sends a PING request every minute. When there is no reply, the device can be restarted or power cycled, or the operator can be notified. Everything is fully automatic without human intervention.
IP WatchDog2 Lite monitors the availability of up to 10 devices, and can reset one or two physical devices (two output channels). The monitoring is configurable to a great extent in IP WatchDog2 (method of monitoring, period, repeating, etc.). The second generation brings SNMP interface, ability to send text messages (SMS), and access via the SensDesk.com online portal.
Typical applications include monitoring the availability of network devices (router, switch, WiFi AP – IP address monitoring), and restarting them if necessary. IP WatchDog2 Lite can be used to detect an unresponsive IP camera or another LAN device.Applications and usage:
- RESET if the device stops responding (WiFi AP / IP camera not responding to ping - automatically restart)
- Power cycling or resetting a device (via a web interface)
- Activation of a back-up Internet connection if the primary link fails (network monitoring)
