Thanks for the prompt reply.
That’s not exactly what I was referring to. Email is too slow and a push notification to my phone isn’t good enough if I don’t have my phone in front of me.
I sit in front of six monitors. On one of the ancillary monitors I have my grid of cameras. When motion is detected, or a camera disconnects, I want to receive a toast notification in Windows. See: blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/tiles_and_toasts/2015/07/08/toast-notification-and-action-center-overview-for-windows-10
For example, when I get an email in Outlook when Outlook is minimized, I get this in the bottom right hand corner of my window, and then it disappears, notifying me that I should open Outlook at check my mail:
That notification tells me I need to look at my cameras.
You can do it with a PowerShell plugin and script: github.com/Windos/BurntToast, but the problem there is that I want it to happen on the client that is connected to the server, not the server itself. And since the server is on the LAN, but on a different domain, PowerShell Remoting isn’t a good enough option for me.
If the client is .NET, you can reference this example: code.msdn.microsoft.com/windowsapps/toast-notifications-sample-52eeba29
It is referred to as a Taskbar notification or Balloon Tip in iSpy: community.ispyconnect.com/ispybb2/viewtopic.php?t=4429
Does that make more sense?
