Machine Tool Monitoring

Looking for insight on machine tool monitoring. We have Doosan/Mazak/Takamaz/Fuji/Miyano machines. The Miyano and Mazak's have Mitsubishi controls. The others have Fanuc controls. I've seen inexpensive systems like the Patlite Stack light system with wireless transmitter to a cloud based software that is pretty simple and affordable, but only gets you Green/Red/Yellow light info. Fanuc and Mitsubishi have their own systems. And plenty of 3rd party systems with varying degrees. Cycle time and pcs made data is also helpful.

Any reccomendations on a systems that give Red/Green/Yellow light and also cycle time and pcs made detail?

We also are an ECI/E2/Shoptech/Job boss user. They offer a system called Alora. Does anyone have feedback on that product and how well it integrates with Job Boss?
