I would really like to put something together but I am a newbie at coding. Sounds like you set it up in Java? do you have something I could get as a start? Pointers?

Thanks!

Check out this thread. There's a lot of discussion as well as some code examples.

Download the Netbeans IDE - it's easy to use and automatically generates the sometimes complex and/or confusing code required to make a Windows-type GUI.

If you want some custom code tailored to your application, I could be persuaded...mostly with beer.

Given my recent problem with a refrigeration unit:
http://www.homebrewtalk.com/showthread.php?t=66697

I would like to spec out something like this:
1) Unit must alert via SMS when a minimum or maximum temperature has been exceeded.
2) Unit would be an appliance that would not require a PC for operation.
3) Web interface to program the set points is preferred although USB connection would be acceptable.
4) Wired Ethernet is OK, but wireless would be preferred.
5) Wall wort power is acceptable.

About the best I can find. What you are looking for will not be cheap.

Do those do SMS output? I only looked a little bit... I was going to say that it'd be easier/better to hook it to a computer, but if you don't have a spare one, it may be cheaper to just go this way. Still, if you only need something to do basic processing, and don't mind doing some hardware stuff yourself, it might be worthwhile to build something.

I speak completely in theory, of course, because I'm looking at circuit diagrams and feeling out of my league.
