hello,

we have a few projectors with network capability, some of these are on remote sites. i want a script that can get the remaining lamp hours, temperature etc automatically send to me on a report on a daily basis.
any help on this will be appreciated.
im sure there must be other companies that would also like these capabilities.

Generally speaking, this is done by companies like Crestron and AMX who make control systems with logic capabilities that can be designed to poll and get additional information and email it or provide it through a single web GUI setup.

Some projectors do have 'management' suites that can be reviewed, and can send emails, but I'm not sure which ones they are.

The advantage with products from Crestron/AMX is that they can be truly created to deliver exactly the final result you are after as possible with the projectors in use. The bad part is that the programming is built from the ground up for your specific needs and can be a bit pricey.

thank you for the reply on this.
so the projector do have a network interface, and i can get the projector to send me reports. but from that i want to retieve the information and put it up on an HTML site for easy viewing.
si instead of going through mails to look at information i can setup alerts to flash red if there is a problem.
