Oh, that vertical market thing again. . . land of proprietary software <g>.
I have been around HVAC land a bit, and have never heard of anything
you're looking for Josh.
Actually, do some heavy googling because FBSD's PHK is apparently doing
many things in that arena with Soekris boxes. . .
But you'd have to agree with Alex that it seems frivilous to go this
route. It might make sense to figure out getting data over RS485 to a
box, then what would allow you to tail the data over that route. . .
