    Well folks

    I'm looking for a bit of software that I can install on pc's / CCTV DVR's that will tell me when they drop offline

    Obviously when a system suddenly goes offline it cannot do anything let alone email me it tell me it's **** itself. I need something that talks to some sort of server and when that connection is lost, the server emails me.

    The mobile PC monitor app that is available for WP can do this but it charges for more than 5 PC's.

    Any reasonable suggestions welcomed :)

    Are you talking about computers that are on a network or domain, or just stand alone computers with internet?

    Tada.
    IPCheck Server Monitor - uptime monitoring, remote network monitoring.
    or if you have an smtp server, you could write a script that pings a PC every 5 minutes then send an e-mail from the smtp server if ping fails.

    If you've never used spiceworks, you should check out their community, they have scripts for EVERYTHING.
