If it has an IP address, monitor it. You can now add any network-connected device to the Panorama9 network

Get more value for your money. Today, we are releasing a new feature that enables you to monitor just about anything in your clients’ networks.

Are you adding network-attached smart sensor, security, and automation devices to your IT environment? They are cheap, they require minimal effort to get started, and they instantly deliver value. IoT is real, and we at Panorama9 love it!

But what’s the point of plugging in a network-connected device, like a security camera or smart power plug, if you can’t be sure it’s online and working? Panorama9 now allows you to add any network-connected devices. If it has an IP address, P9 can monitor it!

At the same time, servers are moving to hosting facilities that are far away from users. Everything is connected through the Internet via secure network connections. You may have few local resources that you can use to effectively spot issues. At Panorama9, we do the heavy lifting of figuring how to monitor a device. You just need to manually add the device and decide whether you want a simple ping check or an advanced SNMP rule. When things break, we will notify you.

Monitor any kind of network-connected device

Any network-connected device can now be monitored with Panorama9Panorama9’s most important task is monitoring remote-control servers and computers. It also automatically detects printers, NASs, switches, USPs, and similar devices. In addition, our monitoring tool now supports other kinds of network-connected devices, like smart power outlets in server rooms or even smart coffeemakers. With the improved P9 Dashboard, you can now add any device type.

Add specific rules to specific devices

The new feature is the most useful when you want to get additional information. For example, say you have a router in your conference room that hits capacity on busy event days. Now you can monitor the internet usage on that specific router and get an alert when it exceeds 90% of the threshold.

To help you learn more about how to work with the new device types, such as setting up monitoring rules, alerts, etc., we made this guide for you.

We hope you’ll find the ability to add any kind of network-connected device useful. We’d love to hear your feedback on how it’s working out for you.
