The Remote Watchman product line is software that allows you to control and monitor remote environments using your Windows based computer and various Sensorsoft protocol devices. It provides a low cost way for your computer to keep watch 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, giving you the freedom to do whatever you need, without worry.
Sensorsoft takes Remote Watchman a step further by adding TCP/IP capability and email alerts in Remote Watchman Client. With Remote Watchman Client your PC can display live measurements and readings on screen, log data to a file with a time/date stamp and most importantly - alert you with text messages to your pager, digital phone or e-mail when environmental conditions become unacceptable. This software runs as a visual application. If you need software that runs as a Windows service please see our Sensorsoft RWME (Enterprise) software.
Remote Watchman Client can be used to access sensors on COM ports, network connected sensors on Lantronix Device Servers or various terminal servers and Windows computers running Remote Watchman Device Server software.
