The OnSiteMonitor platform uses your home computer to create a custom Home Security and Home Automation
system. With the OnSiteMonitor your computer becomes a machine that can monitor cameras,
control the climate, adjust lighting, monitor door/windows, monitor free space on your computer, send email,
play audio files, send alerts, make phone calls, and more.
Basic OnSiteMonitor Concept: Read the status of one device, and cause an action to occur from any
configured device within your OnSiteMonitor configuration.
OnSiteMonitor allows you to use products from multiple vendors that communicate with each other.
Events are used to issue commands to perform actions when specific conditions are met.
OnSiteMonitor is only active when the software is running on your computer. The software is the heart of the system. It
monitors devices, issues controls, takes camera photos, and allows you to interact with your devices remotely
using your smart phone, table, or computer. If the console application not running, OnSiteMonitor is not
active for your account.
The following shows you how data flows throughout the OnSiteMonitor system.

Events, Actions, and Schedules
An event is a status change for a device. When a status changes, one or more actions can be made.
Actions can also be scheduled to occur at a specific time each day, hourly, etc.
For example, you can receive an email alert or phone call with a custom message when motion is detected
at your front door.
There is nothing in OnSiteMonitor that prevents you from using the mobile apps provided by any product's
manufacturer. We realize that most products will have a phone app that allows you to view camera images or
