German version

 

IP WatchDog2 Lite: Überwacht die Verfügbarkeit und führt automatisch einen Neustart von einem oder zwei LAN-Geräten durch. Erkennt nicht ansprechbare Geräte (Router, IP-Kamera, etc.) durch die Überwachung von PING-Antworten oder die Zugänglichkeit von Web-Seiten.

Note: Shorted version - full details in english version.

IP WatchDog2 fordert regelmäßig Antworten des überwachten Gerätes an. Zum Beispiel sendet er jede Minute eine PING-Anfrage. Erhält er keine Antwort, kann das Gerät neu gestartet oder mit Strom versorgt oder der Betreiber verständigt werden. Alles ist voll automatisiert, ohne menschliches Zutun.

IP WatchDog2 Lite überwacht die Verfügbarkeit von bis zu 10 Geräten und kann ein oder zwei physische Geräte rücksetzen (zwei Ausgangskanäle).
Die Überwachung kann in großem Umfang in IP WatchDog2 konfiguriert werden (Überwachungsart, Intervalle, Wiederholungen, etc.). Die zweite Generation bietet eine SNMP-Schnittstelle, die Möglichkeit SMS-Nachrichten zu versenden und den Zugang über das SensDesk.com Online-Portal.

Typische Anwendungen umfassen die Überwachung der Verfügbarkeit von Netzwerk-Geräten (Router, Switches, WiFi Access Points) und deren eventuell notwendigen Neustart. IP WatchDog2 kann verwendet werden, um eine nicht antwortende IP-Kamera oder ein anderes LAN-Gerät zu erkennen.

Typische Anwendungen:

    • RESET (Rücksetzung), wenn ein Gerät nicht mehr reagiert (WiFi AP und/oder IP-Kamera reagiert nicht auf PING)
    • Ein Gerät mit Strom versorgen oder rücksetzen (über eine Web-Schnittstelle)
    • Aktivierung einer Internet-Backup-Verbindung, wenn die primäre Verbindung ausfällt

Usage examples

    IP WatchDog - IP address monitoring - IP address restart, web watchdog, ping restart, rs-232, web relay 110V, remote reboot, autonomous restart
  • Restarting a router / switch
    Every minute, a PING request is sent to the main and backup servers (ping monitor). If the connection fails, the power for a router / switch / WiFi AP (Access Point) is interrupted for a few seconds.
     
  • Monitoring / restarting the PC in an information stand
    Monitors the function of a PC in an autonomous information kiosk consisting of a PC with a touchscreen.
    If the monitored PC does not send an “I'm alive” signal (ping heartbeat or request for a web page), IP WatchDog2 alerts the operator or performs a remote reset of the PC.

  • Network watchdog – internet monitor
    Logs Internet connection outages, switching to a backup link if necessary / monitors the connection to a network.
    • Activation of a back-up link.
    • Outages are signaled by a built-in audible horn and by closing an output relay.
    • Outages are logged to the internal memory.
    • SMS alert can be sent over a local GSM modem.
    • Can be used as a LAN system monitor.

  • IP camera monitor and restarter

    Controlling back-up A/C + remote environment monitoring
    • Monitors the accessibility of the web interface of an IP camera.
    • In case of outage, the camera is restarted, or an alarm output is activated (e.g. in a security system).
       
    • Fully autonomous webcam watchdog, works without human intervention.


 

    Wireless router availability monitoring

    Controlling back-up A/C + remote environment monitoring
    • Monitors network connectivity at a remote site.
    • In case of an outage, the wireless router is automatically restarted.
    • In addition, the IP WatchDog2 web interface can be used for a remote restart of the router.
       
    • Remote reset of the router is logged, and an operator can be notified by e-mail.

>> Software and applications

Spare a power adapter

IP WatchDog2 Lite provides two physical channels to control the power to the connected device. Each channel features a NO/NC relay output as well as a powered PO/PF output.
With the PO/PF output, the connection is simpler and needs one power adapter less.
For details, see the product manual.

Text message (SMS) alerts

With the HWg-Trigger application for Windows

The HWg-Trigger application can be started on any MS Windows PC. This application, based on “IF – THEN“ rules, checks for device alarms, including outages. Alarm status can be notified e.g. by sending a SMS to a specified number.


Sending SMS over the LAN through a central SMS-GW

Text message alerts to outages of a monitored device can be sent from the device monitor, IP WatchDog2 Lite, using a central SMS-GW.
In the web interface of IP WatchDog2, configure the recipient's phone number and the IP address of your central “HWg-SMS-GW” gateway.
No software is necessary, only a working LAN connection is needed.

One “HWg-SMS-GW” gateway can be shared by several devices (e.g. Poseidon2 4002 in the picture).

  • What is the difference between Lite and Industrial versions of the IP WatchDog2?
    See the table above. The Lite version is easier to mount in a 19" rack but it cannot be connected directly to a GSM modem and its relay outputs are rated for low voltage only.
  • What are PO/PF outputs for each channel?
    To simplify installation, IP WatchDog2 Lite can supply power through the relay contacts.
    • PF = Power over NO (Normally Open) – Connect a horn or another alarm signaling device.
    • PF = Power over NC (Normally Closed) – Connect the device to automatically restart.

  • Can the IP WatchDog2 ping monitor if my Internet connection works?
    Yes, it can be used as a network watchdog or web monitor device. The simplest method is to periodically test, using PING, the connection to a well-known server (e.g. Google). For the ping monitoring to work, the server must support PING reply. When there is no reply to ping device reboot takes place.
  • Can the IP WatchDog2 work as a LAN device watchdog, to detect the availability of any LAN device?
    Yes, as long as the device has a web interface or responds to PING. IP WatchDog2 can be used e.g. as a web server monitor or IP camera monitor.
  • Can IP WatchDog2 do ping restart (ping boot) - IP address monitoring and if no reply to ping automatically restart?
    Yes, the watchdog does continuous IP monitoring and if the IP address does not respond to ping device reboot takes place. It works as an autonomous restarter.
  • Can I manually turn the output on/off over the Web?
    Yes, an unused relay output can be controlled remotely via the web interface (web relay).
  • Does the IP watchdog always beep (internal audible alarm) when it detects an outage?
    No, not always. The built-in audio output can be assigned to one output channel, both output channels, or no output channel.
      
  • Is it possible to prevent repeated restart attempts if the monitored device still does not respond after the first ping boot (RESET)?
    Yes, set Timeout After Reboot to 0. Then, after RESET, IP WatchDog2 will wait for a signal (e.g. ping heartbeat) indicating that the monitored device is available.
  • I cannot “ping” the IP WatchDog2 from my computer, or vice versa. What is wrong?
    Make sure that the IP WatchDog2 web interface is accessible from your PC. If this works, make sure that no firewall is running on the computer that you use to test PING. If a firewall is running, turn it off.
    Even the MS Windows firewall can filter traffic. In the firewall configuration, make sure that the necessary ICMP messages – echo reply and echo request – are not blocked; allow them if needed. Some servers block ping requests to prevent Ping of Death attacks.
     
  • What can SNMP in IP WatchDog2 be used for?
    The product can be monitored remotely using the SNMP protocol, and can send SNMP Traps.
  • How many SMS recipients can be configured?
    Text messages can be sent through a HWg-SMS-GW gateway. IP WatchDog2 sends text messages to a maximum of 5 phone numbers.
     
  • Can I monitor the product on the SensDesk portal?
    Yes. The SensDesk.com portal can, for example, send you an e-mail or a cell message if the connectivity to IP WatchDog2 fails.
  • Is there an app for my mobile phone?
    Yes. However, we primarily recommend to connect your IP WatchDog2 to the SensDesk portal and use the SensDesk Mobile app for your smartphone.
     
  • Is it possible to power IP WatchDog2 Lite over the Ethernet?
    No. Check the IP WatchDog2 Industrial version.
     
  • What is the warranty?
    The standard warranty is 2 years, can be extended upon request.
  • Where can I find the prices of your devices?
    Ask our distributors, or request a quote directly from us using the form at this page.
