I am trying to track when a device comes into range. It has been "lost". I know the device details (mac address). Can I set the alert to send me an email if it connects ?

I don't think with our product alone you could, but if you set up remote syslog, there are various syslog servers that have that type of capability (they do a regular expression match on the inbound messages and email alerts based on a match)

A *nix guru could probably craft a shell script in about 10 lines to do the same thing.

That was kindof my next thought, or maybe our DHCP firewall, as it shows the device as active or off-line, but just thought that if there was already a built in function, no need to reinvent the wheel!
