I'm looking for a device that will allow me to remotely switch on a pc by dialing in using a cell phone... or something similar. The device should be able to turn the PC on from a completely off state rather than a standby state.
The situation: we have a server which is housed almost 30km from the nearest home it is serving. Our power company is not very reliable and we have regular outages at all times of the day. If the outage is during the day someone is always close enough to switch it back on. However if the outage is during the night then someone has to drive 30km on a lousy gravel road to switch it on.
I BOUGHT A REMOTE PC SWITCH THAT GOES INSIDE MY COMPUTER AND I CAN CALL FROM MY CELL PHONE AND TURN IT ON OR SHUT IT DOWN SO I CAN ACCESS MY COMPUTER OVER THE INTERNET AND RETRIVE FILES USSEING LOGME IN HAMACHI..THE DEVICE IS CALED CAPRIO SW I BOUGHT IT AT http://www.tutitec.com/ .. IT IS ONE OF A KIND AND IT WORKS GREAT AND I DON'T NEED TO PAY ANY SERVICE FEE CONECTIONS LIKE OTHER REMOTE SERVICES...GO TO THE WEB SITE YOULL REALY LIKE WHAT THEY GOT.....!!!!
In server room and on remote equipment we use (we internet provider) such device Elgato GSM-rebooter http://elgato.com.ua/en/products/gsm- for 6 outlets (220 V). Can control it by SMS or GSM-calling. Every outlet controlled separately On/Off/Reset (Off and after pause - On) + temperature sensor with alarm by SMS, SMS-messages about Power loss and so on.. Usefull stuff! Save time on driving to other part of city for switch reset.
