After purchasing a UPS, I was surprised by the quality of the monitoring software that was available.
It was either too bloated, or looked so old that I didn’t want to install it. I still don’t understand why I need such a large program, to do such a basic task.
Due to this, I decided to create Battery Notification. It’s a simple open source program, less than 1mb in size, that (as of now) runs in the users session and monitors the computers power state. If it notices the power state change, it send you an email (which you can configure within the program) and writes to a local log file.
I wrote this mainly for myself, but while making it decided to ‘extend’ it a little and make it more universal.
The next goal is to create a Windows Service that can run in the background, but this will come in the future. Check back here, or on my github page for more.
