We just received an Iris Internet hub from Lowes for our Florida home. Through this hub we can control the home remotely and receive alerts.
Iris has all kinds of modules to monitor virtually every home function via the Internet. We use their thermostat module with the hub to control the air conditioner in the summer while we're away.
Iris has an app for smart phones that instantly provides information where ever you are and the ability to remotely change settings on the thermostat.
Go to Lowes.com and check out Iris Modules.
