What Software Or Hardware Do You Use To Notify You Of A System Failure?

To serve our clients better we would like to be notified if a camera, NVR, or any part of the system is malfunctioning.

We use both Servers with Windows-based VMS (Avigilon, Exacq), MAC-based VMS (HIKVision, Exacq) as well as Linux-based VMS (HIKVision).

What works and what doesn't?


Hmm.. I think there's an article here about this very topic. But in the mean time there's a lot of references in this thread: http://ipvm.com/forums/video-surveillance/topics/vms-health-check-status
