Personal computers used for data acquisition systems can drastically affect the maximum speeds at which they are able to continuously acquire data. SitePlayer for data acquisition is rapidly becoming a more flexible alternative to a desktop PC based data acquisition system. The data transfer capability of computer use can significantly affect the performance of a DAQ system. The success of Web-based systems has demonstrated the power of connectivity. As the world increasingly moves towards being fully connected, home networking that connects smart household appliances and connects them to the Internet becomes a natural next step. With the wide spread deployment of the Internet and World Wide Web (WWW), both as a public resource and as corporate resources, people have come to recognize the utility of attaching low-cost devices to networks for the purpose of communicating with these devices using standard networking protocols, including TCP/IP (Transfer Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) and HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol) This paper discusses the possibility of using a small system for controlling and monitoring devices from anywhere in the world.
