Do You Have a Camera In Your Server Closet?

What's easier than putting a camera in the wiring closet, pointed at the rack? Does anyone do it?

You get real-time status of switches, routers, ups, power consumption, console performance monitor / errors. You can have a digital thermometer in the FOV as well.

Also handy if you are concerned about people messing with with your s*t.

i know y'all have managed switches, but trying to put together a timeline of what happened from several different logs is tedious at best. Wouldn't it be nice to be able to replay a failure from the server closet's perspective?

And what about those times when the switch says x, but you don't believe it?

Everyone has a old camera and a port they leave open for maintenence, right?

So why not?
