SMS Based M2M user interface

Newbie

We have developed a new line of complete and easy to use SMS based devices for remote control and monitoring.  They currently work great from a cell phone.  However we have struggled with finding a clean off-the-shelf User Interface that can allow customers to access our devices using a PC or server.

One would think that in this industry a firm that specializes in simple UI software would have emerged but we have yet to find one.  Can anyone guide me to such a person or firm.

    Hi Myron,

     

    there are many SCADA software vendors which will run on a variety of platforms including windows. They provide very powerful praphical display development tools along with many other features - alarming etc. All you will need a is a driver or drivers to get the data form your devices into the SCADA system. A google search for SCADA or a visit to a SCADA and/or supervisory process control exhibition should give you everything you need to start to make a vendor choice.
