I'm looking for a Room Alert sensor that can detect water coming into server room through underground?

The rope type water sensor would be best in this case. The rope flood sensor is available in lengths of 2.4m or 7.3m. The sensor fits on all Room Alerts.

Do I have to install special software so I can log in to the unit or it is IP based and can log in through any PC on the same network by writing the unit IP address on the internet browser?

The only software you need is the software you use to initlally assign the Room Alert monitor with an IP address on your network. After that you just browse to the IP address, log in and then you can see live sensor readings, graphs and configure alerts etc..

I want to track (and be able to graph) the evolution of temperature in a room over time. Am I correct that the Avtech Room Alert 3 Wi-Fi will allow this?

Yes. With the release of the version 2.0 firmware, the Room Alert 3 Wi-Fi is able to log and graph your data.

Can I use the Avtech Water Level Sensor (NC) to monitor the fuel level in the fuel tanker?

No. I would not recommend this sensor for use in a fuel tank. You would need to use one of the Fuel Level sensors for the AVTECH products. There are two versions, one is Normally Closed (NC) and the other is Normally Open (NO).

Is it possible to connect GSM modem directly to the Room Alert unit to send alert SMS directly without using Email-SMS service?

It is not possible to connect a GSM modem directly to the Room Alert. A better solution is to use the free Device ManageR software, the call out plugin and a USB SMS modem. You can then centralise data collection and alerting for all of your Room Alert monitors.

For the SKU: RMA-PS1-SEN, can you tell me the power measurement range?

The PS1 Power Sensor is actually a power presence sensor rather than a sensor which measures voltage/power output. It is a switch sensor that is normally in a closed state and will change state and therefore alert or change status, to loss or disruption of power for instance. The AVTECH PS2 Power Sensor alternatively shows real-time monitoring of amps, voltage and watts.

The Room Alert 4E and 4ER has one internal temperature sensor, plus 3 external ports. Two of these external ports are digital ports and one is a switch port.

Yes. The Flood sensor fits on the 'switch' type port on the Avtech Room Alert 4E.
