After reading this thread and thinking about it, I think I'm going to put together an arduino based station monitor. These are the items I've come up with to include.

AC power monitor
DC Voltage/Load
Room Temperature
Radio On/Off
Antenna position
Additional relays to provide on/off contacts for accessories

I plan to construct this in a 2U rack enclosure and will provide digital panel readouts as well as remote display and control via an iPhone/iPad app.

Help me out with this and post any other items you think it would be useful to include. In return I will document the process for anyone else that may want one.

This is in line with some of the monitoring being done at a remote repeater site.  From your description I'm assuming there is some type of remote connection capability.

Include:

- Door open/close status

- User 1-4 binary indicators (e.g. Low generator fuel)

- User 1-4 byte level indicators 0-15 (binary man at heart)
