A Easy Way to Monitor Networks

As a network admin, it can get tedious to monitor clients on a network or perform rudimentary tasks. This program is a stepping stone to automating networks.

The main function is client monitoring. It will connect to a router, look at the clients on the network, and then when a new clients joins it will send you a text message to your phone.

It also performs some basic tasks on the desktop app such as restarting the dhcp service or the router itself.

The twilio api is used to send the message to your phone, and the paramiko library is used to connect to the router via ssh.

Although pretty neat, I did say it was only a stepping stone. Future plans for this project include being able to reply via text and offer more automation.

Also did i mention this is run on a raspberry pi?
