Home Weather Center 1.0
Lightsoft has released for Mac OS X. The application offers weather graphing, monitoring and analysis using internet-based weather. It allows the user to view weather statistics such as the lowest temperature or the highest wind speed over any time period stored in the database. In addition HWC contains a journal for weather notes and can generate web pages containing current conditions, graphs, statistics and a web-cam image and can automatically upload these web pages to a web server. HWC also monitors the weather and can run a set of pre-defined and user programmed alerts that can trigger emails, send SMS messages to a mobile phone and/or run scripts should an alert trigger. The $35 shareware runs on Mac OS X 10.2 or later, but requires Mac OS X 10.3 for some advanced functions.
