In the process of a reorganization, HW group has divided its monitoring products into 2 categories:
The standalone monitoring category contains all standard HW group devices like Poseidon2, STE/STE2, Ares, Damocles2, WLD2, HWg-PWR and IP Watchdog.
These devices have a web server for local configuration. They can additionally send e-mails independently and communicate with various monitoring systems via SNMP, XML and other protocols. The standalone devices operate independently. They can be connected to the SensDesk portal or the HWg cloud, but it is not mandatory.
The second category IoT Monitoring, contains the SD and NB product series.
These devices require the use of an online service, such as SensDesk.com or Hwg-cloud.com in order to operate. They do not provide a web server. Configuration and alarming are done via the cloud. The devices can be connected to other monitoring systems via Open API (SNMP, XML).
