The Remote Power Switch is a great product. It works flawlessly. I have a cron job that fires a custom shell script to turn on an external hard drive, perform a backup, and power off the hard drive. I couldn't find anything in the docs about how to talk to the outlet other than the slick web UI or iPhone app. So, I poked around and found that you simply need to curl http://_outlet ip_/socket.cgi to get the status and http://_outlet ip_/invert.cgi to turn it on/off. Pretty rad!

I ordered three of these for two different locations and have been testing one of the units for about a week. It is configured to reset power to network devices every night and also when connectivity fails to overcome periodic loss of connectivity to these devices. The setup was very easy and the product seems to be working reliably.

A pleasure to deal with. The shipping was fast. The product worked perfectly and the the support was great.

Installed easily. DO download the documentation at the website. Not sure if it works - have to have the internet go down once. But . . . it is better than NO alternative. Support actually called ME and asked if I needed any help. Amazing.

Worked as promised, much easier to control and setup (in my opinion) than the 2 outlet version.

Works perfectly, just as I had hoped. Using it to automatically reboot router at winter home which has home security and automation through my internet connection. I no longer have to beg a neighbor to enter my home and do it manually as I am 1500 miles away. I was needing it to be done every 3 months or so.

Great product. Before I bought this I was relying on a $10 wally world timer to reboot my router 2 times a day. The problem there is that the router may go wonky shortly after a scheduled reboot and my terminal server and security cam dvr would be inaccessible. Now thanks to this goodie it reboots when needed for minimal downtime. A must-have when it just has to be up & running. Just last week I went to check my cameras--no service. Used the android app to reset the router and bingo, I had my cameras viewable a minute later

I used to have a nice work from home gig but they brought us all back in-house. So now I cannot be there to reboot stuff if needed. I maintain a terminal server for my sister in texas for her quickbooks and I run webservers and a security cam system for the house. Previously I was relying on a $10 walmart timer to give the router a reboot 2x's a day to try to keep it fresh--every so often there would be an "off-cycle" glitch and the router would get jammed up and everything would be down until I could get home. Now with this baby I don't have ro worry about the 2 reboots a day at possibly inconvenient times and NOT rebooting when it's really needed

I wanted to respond an say that I ran your product through it's paces, making sure it could be set to a static IP and enjoying the fact that not only could it ping but go against an http: url. I am using it as a kind of deadman switch to monitor a standalone data acquisition device (with web interface) such that if it stops responding to web queries, the device is reset. Works as advertised in every respect. I will share the information re: this device with other interested parties.
