The Single Outlet IP Switch is designed to automatically check if the network connection is online. Should the internet connection go down, the outlet is designed to automatically power-cycle. Users can also remotely turn on/off/reset the outlet via the Android/iOS App or the User Interface (web browser) or schedule timed on/off/resets*.

Uses for the 3Gstore Single Outlet IP Switch:

  • Home users who have to manually power-cycle their router to re-gain internet connectivity 
  • IT Professionals who need to automatically or remotely reset devices
  • Preventing your connection from timing out or going dormant
  • Create an automatic power schedule (ex: turn on at 9am & turn off at 5pm)

*The iPhone/Android application is required to update the firmware on the IP Switch. All other controls can be accessed either via the app or the web interface.

NOTE: the single-oulet switch cannot be configured for custom external or internal ping targets. If this is a feature that your application requires, please see the Dual Outlet IP Switch, which allows changes to be made to both external and internal IP addresses.

You'll also have 24/7 access to our online Support Portal (which includes step-by-step guides, tip sheets, documentation, manuals, and more)!

The primary feature of the unit is very simple: it monitors an internet connection and power-cycles the connected devices if the internet connection goes down. This simple feature alone can be very useful if your mobile broadband or cable/DSL connection drops, and all you need to do is reset the router to re-gain connectivity - this will automatically reset the router for you, without anyone having to visit the location and manually cycle power.

Great product. Easy to setup. iOS app works great. Solved my problem of router reset for internet security cameras at a remote location

The device is okay for its price. Unfortunately there are remarkably few usable products like this in any price range. There are a few big problems with this device that seem like they would be very easy to fix. First and biggest is there is no password protect for the device interface. You can't open up access to it on the public Internet because anybody can just log into it. Also, I don't know what port the iOS app uses but that is not password protected either. So again, no public Internet access to it. Another thing that is very wrong with it, is the iOS app that controls it, does not let you enter a hostname for the device. So you can't do something like setup dynamic DNS to access it on the public Internet, even if it was password protected... Fix these things, and you have a first class little device for very cheap! Too bad because we are an IT consulting firm and could probably use a bunch of these if they revise it.

The build & quality of this device is fine, BUT the firmware has a number of bizarre 'features' which really limit it's usefulness. Unlike most 'ping rebooters', there's no way to tell it what IP to ping, so it simply tries to connect to ''the internet'', but it's not possible to use it on any non-internet network. Also, if you need it to reset some equipment on the loss of connectivity to an Access Point, there is now way to tell it to ping that Access Point, only 'the internet' itself. Also, once the device is deployed in the field, there's no way to really log into it - it has a 'smart phone' application, so you need to have a Phone/Tablet to access it - and there's no Windows or Mac ability to log into it - totally bizarre limitations for a device like this. That all being said, if the limitations do still allow you to program this to fit into your network needs, they are built well and they work fine. I just wish that the programmers would actually have to use them, so that they would have programmed the features that people actually need. :) OH, also - I have to say that shipping/packaging/ordering - that all went really well. :) Nothing bad to say about the sales process at all, sales & shipping was excellent. :)

3Gstore Comments:
This particular model IP switch was designed to be controlled by an iPhone or Android App. The configuration is indeed "Fixed" in that you are unable to specify a ping target either internal or external (this is noted in the product description in bold red type). This product does require internet access in order to communicate with the "Cloud Enabled" services in which it provides.

It sounds like you may have just purchased the wrong item for your application/needs. Our Dual Outlet IP Switch model was designed for configuring ping targets that are internal IP's and specifying what to do when there is a loss of connectivity to an access point as you described - I recommend looking into that option and if you'd like to swap things out, call us for an RMA.

Both devices do have web-based GUI's that can easily be enabled to the outside for "Logging into" or managing from a distance. This does require an internet connection with a Static/Public IP address in order to properly configure port forwarding in the router connected to the switch.

These are great auto remote outlets. Only the English when the server can't respond needs improving.

My IP Power switch was shipped very quickly. The instructions included we clear and easy to follow. Testing the IP switch was easy. I just found the IP address of the unit and pointed my web browser to issue commands. For the price, I am very satisfied.

Good for rebooting a DSL / Cable gateway and that is about it, no way to control which IP/URL to monitor for auto restart, so your stuck with the default ip they used as a ping source. Unless you know your server or webcam is down and then do a manual reboot from the app it would be useless for monitoring them. For the lack of functions and a elementary school written web interface I think this switch is way over priced, for a few more dollars you can get the dual port switch that does everything this one does not.

The product works as advertised and so does the app for the iphone to manage it. Those of you who want to use it in a datacenter will appreciate that it can be used with 208V power (Belkin Wemo's can't), so this stands alone in that market space. Updating the firware is a breeze, very easy. That being said, there are some improvements that could be made. The pairing procedure with the iphone app is a little buggy, you may need to register your device more than once when you first set it up. A couple of my devices needed to be paired twice (even after updating the firmware). Also, if you have more than 5 devices, when you try to scroll down on the iphone app, it will "snap" back up to the top and you can't manage the units at the bottom. You just have to close and re-open the app and it will work again. The only other issue is that the unit itself is top heavy once you plug in a power cable at the top, so it can topple over. Not a big deal if you place it on the floor, but if you want to use it on a shelf or in a cabinet, a little sticky velcro can help. A wireless feature would be awesome in the future too to replace the RJ45 port for networking. Also, it would be fantastic to be able to see power stats (watts/amps/volts) from the unit. Overall, I would recommend this unit and would buy additional units in the future. I don't use the auto-ping feature, so I can't comment on it.

Thank you so much for the detailed review. We have forwarded your improvement ideas on to the manufacturer and will keep you posted on any progress. Thanks again for the input.

Great product at a good price. Very quick shipping. Wnet out same day even though it was past the cutoff time. The IP Switch is a great product. Have used the 2 outlet in past. Bought another and the new smaller 1 outlet switch. Already installed it at a customer that was having issues with a computer locking up. Works great and saves a trip there until I get to the bottom of the problem.

Used automatic reset no internet power supply for AT&T Uverse NVG510, working like a charm.

Can you turn off the automatic reboot if internet connection drops and just use this for remote rebooting of a device?
After a complete power loss, does the unit default to on or off?
How many watts is this rated for?

If I purchase Remote Power Switch - 1 Outlet, can I put the APP on several cellphones to control only one unit?
Can you remotely access the switch using an iPad/iPhone?
What sites does it ping? Does it use ICMP or HTTP requests?
Does the single outlet IP switch have a physical option for turning on power to an outlet (such as the switches on the two outlet model) or can power only be turned on through software?
Can I control the outlet from a remote host with a script (e.g. telnet, http request)?
How many outlets can you control with a single App?
How is this different than the two-outlet model? Please be specific.
