    COM port monitoring

    Help for the Windows non-guru....

    I have a customer with a SmartStick + on a Windows 10 machine. He also has an Insteon USB hub. When plugged in they generate (what I assume are) virtual serial COM ports (visible in the Device Manager).
    My customer has had problems in the past with COM ports randomly disconnecting and would like a way to monitor the COM port status.
    Is anyone familiar with any utility that will monitor ports and send email or text notifications?
    Absent that, I have looked at a few utilities, none that say they have email notifications, but that can trigger a program or script. So I figure I could pair it with a command line script to send an SMS notification.
