What is HwR?

HwR is a simple android application that reads various sensors from your PC and shows them on your android device.

What is a Sensor?

A sensor can be any measurement from your PC: cpu frequency, cpu temp, physical memory usage, gpu frequency, fan speeds…

How does it look like?

do you plan to make it work through usb something similar to logitech g19 lcd? app is great im using it on daily base

    Nope no plans for this. Target audience would be even smaller than it already is i guess 🙂 You should check the hwinfo forums, there might be something similar already.

    The only project i might do some day is something like an arduino based lcd or eink display based thingy.

From this thread:

https://www.hwinfo.com/forum/Thread-HwReceiver-HwTransmitter-Android-App?pid=15401#pid15401

“Would you be interested in making this application open-source?

I think it would be a great idea! I would try contributing to your project as I am very interested in this type of work.”

    Actually it is more or less 🙂
    Here is the code hosted on github: https://github.com/AJ92/HwInfoReceiver
    feel free to do what ever you want with it. If you come up with good additional features we could definitly merge.

      Is the transmitter also open source?
      And any license?
      Thanks

      @Dalva sorry, unfortunatly the windows application is closed source because the shared memory interface with hwinfo sort of is. Thats why i only release a binary. Usage is free ofcourse. If you want to get the raw data from hwinfo you could check out hwinfo forums, if i remember right there was a 3rd party program which has a rest api or you could ask the dev for the shared memory part.
      The android app’s source code is under public domain. Should add this in the repo 🙂

Great app! Nice and clean UI, very easy to use
Have tried other software to remotely view CPU, GPU and MB temps and speeds etc and found this to be the best option for my needs. Especially as I use HWINFO and MSI Afterburner already which is fantastic
Would love an option for maybe a future build to change the font size/scaling but that is just a personal preference, otherwise this is a very nice looking useful app!

Many thanks !
