SWMon (short for Switch Monitor) connects with a WebRelay over the network, when the relay status changes you can run any application...
- send an email (via bmail or sendemail)
- shutdown all computers at the end of the day (via psshutdown)

- start or stop a Windows service

SWMon can also change the function of DNS Redirector, examples and documentation available here.

Tested on Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 and Server 2003, 2008, 2012
This program runs as a service; without any GUI, taskbar, or system tray icon.


1) Ensure the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.x is installed
2) Run swmonsetup.msi and follow the wizard
3) Modify C:\SWMON\swmon.ini as indicated (see comments within the file)


It is strongly suggested you specify a unique/strong password for webrelay control. If you need to allow anonymous control and still have this program monitor the relay status, set Password=* in swmon.ini to bypass the need to specify a password.
