Post Windows 2008 64Bit Setup Reply with quote
Hi,

As you can't already tell I am a newbie to home automation.
I am looking for some help to get pointed in the right direction.
I am looking for something that will run on windows 2008 server 64bit and send out email notifications on some leak/water sensors.
Any help / advice on hardware specs would be appreciated.

Thanks,

I don't know of any testing done on a 64 bit platform. That being said, isn't their a 32 bit compatibility mode in most 64 bit OS's?

If that 64 bit stuff turns out to be a non issue then vCrib should work for you. You could use a water float sensor in your sump, that gives you a contact closure. hook it up to a Phidget 8/8/8 or X10 DS10a with the W800RF. Then use the SMTP features of vCrib to send you an email when the water detected event occurs. Other sensors that detect moisture may need to be wired differently as they usually require power. Depends on your situation.
