The Audio Watchdog allows you to remotely monitor the presence of audio on various inputs, such as analogue or digital audio inputs, streaming audio (Shoutcast/ICEcast and/or RTP), or playback from a memory card. The Watchdog can autonomously switch between these inputs (in case the preferred input is failing), or allow the user to remotely switch between inputs. Audio settings can also be remotely adjusted. Monitoring and control are available via SNMP or a web server (syslog is also supported, but it supports monitoring only).
