    I am looking for a way to monitor equipment remotely. I am hoping to
    use radio transmitters to send a signal to a reciever connected to my
    pc. I have some experience programming in a commercial environment but
    have no idea how to go about achieving this.

    Is radio the best way to go for low cost short distance wireless
    communication or should i be looking at gprs or some other technology?

    Do you mean something like GE Sensing's GearTrak wireless equipment?

    1/2 mile to one mile (with booster)... impressive!

    Hello Nick,

    Depends on whether this is for a few units or for production. For a few
    units I'd look at "ready-to-go" ISM band radio transceiver modules. They
    are mostly geared to hook up to a serial port.

    For large production runs TI has lots of chips, so do Nordic-Semi and
    others. But that means more testing to make sure FCC limits are maintained.
     
  4. What data rate? What do you consider to be 'short distance'?
