Tom Gallagher Diesel Service

The diesel repair shop needed a way to keep track of boats located thought out the keys. Which marina, and other important details on each boat so that mechanics could location and bring the correct parts for the repairs.


The data is recorded in a SQLite file, which make backup very easy for their office staff.

LSB Keyboard Tester

Keyboard Tester:

One of our clients literally had hundreds of keyboards to test and we wanted to visual verify each key on every keyboards, and we wanted it fast! So in less than a day we created LSB Keyboard Tester, yes it has bugs and minor issues but it makes the task of testing keyboards much faster. Some reserved keys can't visually tested, and Return/Enter key clears the screen. And there are other keys that would not show up, but overall it works. There are compiled PC/Windows and Apple Mac versions in File Sharing section of our site.

Just a handy little tool.

DIY Alarm Monitor

We are happy to announce  our first major Mac program, DIYAlarmMonitor. Just as the name suggests it is a software interface to monitor your home alarm system. The basic project consists of three parts, an Arduino, DIYAlarmMonitor and an unused Alarm System. 

For the Arduino we also proved the PDE program which is written to be easy to read by the programming novice. When a zone is active it sends a code to the computer, it also sends a random number to confirm communications and it monitors temperature.

DIYAlarmMonitor was written to be used to support a personal website, meaning it creates files that you could easily read using PHP. It also supports  relay controls to activate lights or siren.

This is an on going project, so please contact us for feature requests or bugs.

We are also considering developing an interface, or shield for the Arduino that would be a matter of plug-in play.
