Storage Monitor

The RUST Storage Monitor is a deployable electrical entity used to link in-game inventory information about a Tool Cupboard, Large Wood Box, or Vending Machine directly to a player’s real-life phone via the Rust+ Companion App. Facepunch added electricity components in the Electric Anniversary update on the 7th of December, 2018.

Players may deploy storage monitors on any of the above-mentioned entities. When using a Wiring Tool to check for ports, players will find a single Power Out port, as well as a Power In.  As the name implies, storage monitors are used to allow players to check the current inventory of any receptacle they’re paired to from their smartphone app.

Requiring 1 power input to function, once paired (check out our smart device guide), if the contents of the box change in-game, players can see the new inventory. Because of the output power function, a Smart Alarm could also be attached for more immediate updates.

Storage monitors may be found in an assortment of mid-to-high tier crates, as well as drops from a wide range of scientists. Players may also research them directly or invest scrap into the Tier 2 Workbench tech tree.
