The Audio Sentinel® is a web-enabled two channel stereo silence monitor combined with a transparent, integrated audio switcher. Audio Sentinel® is designed to monitor two balanced or unbalanced independent stereo analog audio sources and switch to a back-up analog audio source when silence is detected on either or both channels. The Audio Sentinel® may also be configured for independent dual-stereo non-switching applications. The Audio Sentinel® can be controlled and monitored locally and/or remotely over any IP network, including private networks, IP-based industrial control networks, and the Internet. Users can operate the product using a web browser or web-enabled mobile device. Email notification may be configured to alert up to EIGHT recipients when alarms are detected. The user may also enable a sound effect to play on their PC speaker when an alarm is generated. Logging of system status, along with the site ID may be emailed in time spans from once an hour to once a day. One SPDT relay is supplied to indicate which input channel is feeding the output, while two additional independent SPDT relays may be configured to perform user defined action sequences. We have also provided SNMP capabilities to allow multiple units to be monitored with any SMNP manager software package. SMTP username and passwords are also supported.
