I have a PC with a USB humidity logger, that measures humidity in our factory. When the humidity is too high, the PC sends me an email alerting me to the problem.
Sometimes the internet goes down, or there's a power failure.
Then, my PC can't email me.
I need a way to know ASAP when the PC loses internet connectivity.
One idea, is if there was a server somewhere, and my PC could ping it every 3 mins. If the server doesn't receive a ping after 10 minutes, the server can email me.
How do I solve this problem?
