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.

Tech Support and 24/7 Support Portal Access Included: Our expert tech support is included for free with your purchase. 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.

Works great, easy to set up, does every thing i needed. Would definitely recommend it. I have two in use with no problems.

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!

Works as promised

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

Questions & Answers

I simply need a switch that will allow me to reboot any device plugged into it by assigning the switch a private static IP which I can access privately without going through the Internet. Does this switch have that functionality?
Can I use this using 12volt power?
Can I send an http request (get or post) to the switch's web interface to turn on/off the device connected to the outlet? Example of the specific request would be helpful.
Not shown anywhere is the Settings screen where one sets the address that this device will check to verify Internet connectivity. Explain please: does this have to be an URL (which needs a DNS to be resolved) or a simple IP address?
I'm having an issue with the mobile application. Is it OK to uninstall the app and re-install it if I am NOT at the same location as the Switch?
If I have (at a remote cabin) Internet connectivity, can I send, over the Internet, a command to the single outlet unit and have it turn off then on the router its connected to?
Where can I find information on how the web browser functions work?
How long does the switch wait after a reboot before it starts pinging again?
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?
How frequently does the switch ping to confirm the internet connection?
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.
Would like to see screen shots of the menus. Are these menus the same as or similar to the 2 outlet version?
