SCD - Event Triggers and Alerts

Question: What kind of alerting functions are in place for event triggers? How can a sensor value alert a function to email my cell phone for example?



The Sense and Control Dashboard software currently does not support these types of triggers or actions, however, serves more as an example implementation of interacting with a wireless application. In the very near future we are working on adding actuator-based functionality to the software to implement commands including external system commands to implement actions similar to the example mentioned in the above question. That said, to implement this functionality, even separate from the sense and control software, is not extremely difficult. The FirstTouch kit itself is configured to represent itself as a HID-class device in the USB-interface to windows and by creating a small application that runs on the host PC you can interact with this device and respond to inputs appropriately.
