But then I started the search for a suitable RSS reader. This application is a little different from most RSS applications in that it is real time, we need notification within minutes, and only a portion of the incidents are of interest. The feed, and the web page, list incidents for all of Victoria. So for it to be of any real use I need a feed filtered at least by out local region. Incidents hundreds of kilometres away will flood any alarm system I may use.
So what I think I need is a reader that will:
- Check for updates every 1 or 2 minutes.
- Filter incidents by region, town, and type.
- Email filtered incidents.
I'm still looking. My notes on readers I'm testing are kept here.
