Share Your Unusual Monitoring Scenarios with Paessler for PRTG and Win a Cool Gadget

You Monitor Something Amazing and Far Out? This is Your Chance to Shine!

When we first asked our community about their unusual usage scenarios back in 2013, we couldn’t have dreamt-up the examples we received from users around the globe. We now know that our users track jackpot values in casinos, keep track of the temperature of blood fridges in hospitals, and even measure the water salinity and PH values of a prawn farm! Sounds crazy and awesome at the same time, doesn’t it? We are sure this isn’t the end of the story.

So please, let us know what you have come up with and convince the Paessler jury! Our My PRTG Sensor Campaign will run between mid-September until mid-December, and the best entries get a monthly chance to win a WOWOTO Mini Projector, a Sonos PLAY:3 or a PS4 Pro! Sounds like a fun challenge? For all details on how to participate, please see our campaign page or directly send an email to
