Zabbix is a free monitoring system for tracking statuses of various services of a computer network, servers and network equipment. This system has got a possibility to adjust different ways to notify a user: e-mail, SMS, Jabber, Ez Texting, user scripts. These ways to notify a user are delivery channels in use to send notifications and alerts from Zabbix. According to the fact that Zabbix supports user scripts, it is possible to use devices NetPing SMS, UniPing server solution v4/SMS or NetPing 8/PWR-220 v4/SMS as an SMS gateway to send SMS notifications about events in the monitoring system Zabbix as one of the notification methods. As a result, organising this method of SMS notifications can significantly save funds due to using alternate services for sending SMS notifications, available on the Internet.

The service NetPing Dashboard allows creating an own interactive network map and a power supply control panel for devices individually, having spent several minutes. The service displays data from sensors connected to NetPing devices, which is updated in a real time. In addition, this service provides an opportunity to control built-in relays of a series of NetPing devices for a remote management of power supply sockets, thus adjusting the buttons for controlling sockets at the interactive map NetPing Dashboard.
In this article, creating a simple and convenient controlling panel for «smart sockets», located remotely in different branches of a company is described. At the picture above you can see a ready control panel for power supply of devices. Using this control panel, it is possible to turn on, turn off, reset and track a status of devices added to a scheme remotely.
Devices with enhanced features and a built-in modem, such as a gateway for sending and receiving SMS commands NetPing SMS, a device for remote monitoring of sensors via a network UniPing server solution v4/SMS and a device for remote controlling power supply sockets NetPing 8/PWR-220 v4/SMS have got a feature of sending random SMS notifications using HTTP API. This innovation can be used in the monitoring system PRTG Network Monitor to send SMS notifications about certain events in monitoring objects. As a result of organizing such system of SMS notifications PRTG Network Monitor, it is possible to save some funds using alternate services for sending SMS notifications, available on the Internet.

To make a NetPing device located on the LAN available via the Internet, there is a need to configure port forwarding on your router.
Port Forwarding is a technology allowing to access a network device in the internal LAN behind a router from the Internet using NAT technology. The access is made by redirecting traffic from an external address of the router to the address of a selected network device in a local network.
A remote sensor monitoring device UniPing server solution v4/SMS allows to organise an access monitoring system to a server room remotely on the basis of a motion sensor and a door opening sensor. What happens when the sensors are triggered: when a door is opened or a motion is indicated in a server room, a device UniPing server solution v4/SMS can instantly send SMS notifications to a technical staff. Thus, UniPing server solution v4/SMS provides additional security functions to server rooms and other rooms to prevent unauthorized access.
There is a certain moment when businesses grow up to the level when their internal informational systems do not fit a single server cabinet anymore. And then the leader of the IT department has to consider all pros and cons and decide if to build a server room or not.
