Ok, this is a kinda silly idea for a program, but would in the end save me a few hours every other weekend.

Basically when I am doing laundry the machine is in the basement, my computer room is on the 2nd floor. So when the drier finishes it lets out a loud Buzz, but not quite loud enough to reach me on the third floor.

My overly complex idea is, can I write a program that keeps checking the sound from a mic in the basement (I have a computer down there) and it sees a spike in the sound level it will then send me an email, or other alert up to my upstairs computer which will then play a sound to let me know its time to switch over the loads.

I already know how to send the email and the alert, what i am wondering is if there is some way that I can monitor the sound in on the basement computer?

Thanks in advance.
