1. A circuit monitoring device, comprising:

  • one or more processors, each having a memory and an input electrically coupled to a circuit which is configured to receive a measured electrical parameter of the circuit, and modules comprising software to configure the one or more processors, the modules including;

    a comparison module configured to compare a digital value, which corresponds to a magnitude of the measured electrical parameter, to a plurality of threshold values stored in the memory, wherein the plurality of threshold values define a respective plurality of ranges of digital values, each range corresponding to one of a plurality of conditions of the circuit including a normal condition and at least one alarm condition, andassign a status based on the digital value being within a particular range defined by one or more of the plurality of threshold values,a communication module configured to generate a status signal including at least the assigned status; and

    a transmitter configured to transmit the status signal to a centralized system over a network for output, by the centralized system, of the status.
