How to monitor the temperature by using built-in Temperature Sensor ( For VigorAP1000C/920/918R)

Temperature monitoring is helpful for us to prevent devices from getting physical damage. With built-in Temperature Sensor, we are able to monitor the internal temperature of VigorAP1000C/920/918R and even get temperature alerts from devices. Following steps will demonstrate how to monitor the internal temperature and make APs send Syslog/Mail alerts when they are getting abnormal temperature.

Note: Make sure that 2.4GHz wireless is enabled( Built-in Temperature Sensor won’t work if 2.4GHz wireless is disabled).

1. To set up alert methods, go to System Maintenance >> Syslog / Mail Alert Setup.
