Alert notifications for when devices and/or the Mac Mini goes offline, the GigaFox admin will receive a notification.
A generalized notification/alert system that could react to specific events in GigaFox, and send a notification to the appropriate people.
Potentially could include any of:
- notifications via email, SMS, or banner-splash on GF pages
- various priorities for notifications and ability for recipients to set a filter level
- capacity to send notification to a specific user or all users assigned to a particular role

We like this idea and have developed a python script in the to deal with it for now. We monitor devices going offline and coming back online. We also monitor devices that have battery levels that get low. For the MacMini it would be ideal to have a master ***** configuration where each monitor the cluster status. We have two macmini's that operate like this. However, the USB hubs must be manually switched over to the ***** in a failure of the main macmini. We use TimeMachine to backup the PostGres database to keep configs in sync.
