Weathergoose by IT watchdogs. 1U rackmount devices with very shallow depth of about an inch or two. Sensors are cheap, varied, and you can daisychain dozens of them together. So one server box can monitor entire row of racks. Loads of other features too for notification, escalation, and SNMP manageable.

You can run CAT-5 to where you want to monitor something, and stick a module on the end of the cable.   They have temp, humidity, generic NO/NC sensors, power sensors to graph voltage and alert on voltage swings etc.   They can send emails, SNMP traps, or dial out with a modem.      They also have a built in mic that can alert on noise increases.     Some models allow you to dial in and listen to the room.
