Owing to the development of IT technology, a computerized system in various ways such as a variety of company's businesses, factory automation system and hospital healthcare system is introduced and operated. And it is possible to say that a computer system is more important than anything else to the extent that all businesses are suspended in case the system is down. Attention should be always paid to environmental management such as temperature, humidity and fire in server room for the normal operation of system in this situation. It is thought that there is necessity for a low-cost system which independently monitors environment round the clock in the situation where the person in charge doesn't pay attention and which informs a person in charge in real time when an event occurs for the operation of this small server room. Consequently, it is to be hoped that the suspension of service provided by computer system, which may occur due to a specific event, can be prevented.

IT기술의 발달로 기업의 각종업무, 공장 자동화시스템, 병원 의료시스템 등 다양한 방면에서 전산화된 시스템을 도입하여 운영하고 있으며 시스템이 정지되었을 경우 모든 업무가 정지될 정도로 전산 시스템의 중요도는 그 어떠한 것보다 중요하다 할 수 있을 것이다. 이러한 상황에서 시스템의 정상 운영을 위해 서버실의 온도, 습도, 화재등과 같은 환경 관리에도 항상 신경을 써야 한다. 이러한 소규모 서버실 운영을 위해서는 담당자가 신경 쓰지 않는 상황에서 24시간 독자적으로 환경 모니터링을 하고 이벤트 발생 시 실시간으로 담당자에게 알려주는 저비용의 시스템이 필요하다고 생각되며 이러한 문제를 해결하기 위해 데몬 프로세스와 아두이노를 기반으로 한 장비의 연동 결과 담당자에게 실시간 환경 데이터를 제공하고 특정 이벤트 발생 시 그 이벤트에 대한 내용을 제공하여 그로인해 발생할 수 있는 문제 등을 미연에 방지 할 수 있을 것으로 기대한다.
