    GSM Remote Mains Power Switch?

    Hi all

    Has anyone ever come accross a device to remotely (via a mobile phone) reboot a device such as a router?

    Were are haveing router problems and its usually out of hours, this stops our VLE beiong available and access to webmail etc until we reboot the router (something we have to do on site)

    has anyone seen a GSM based remote power switch type of device anywhere?

    I know RS used to do a DTMF tone switch some years ago?

    I have found this one, but I know there is something else out there, I will keep an eye out for you and let you know if I find it, it was cheaper than the one I have linked you to I think off the top of my head.

    Don't know if its that one but there was one reviewed on the radio a couple of months back where they demonstrated turning a mixer on via a text message but the real application was for situations just as you want. It was demonstrated on the Chris Evans radio 2 show bussiness slot.

    Red face GSM Key+

    Have a look at this:

    SeNd Technology Ltd - "TranSceNding the Boundaries"


    It can switch anthing by just ringing the number or sending a SMS to the SIM card number within. Just wire the main supply through its relay contacts. Its from | SeNd Technology Ltd | "Are you getting the Message?" |.

    The GSM remote control mains power switch that you are looking for can be found by searching for GSM-AUTO in Google and you can download the instruction manual here

    Why not just get a digital plug in timer and then set it for an off period of 5 minutes every night?

    There is a new GSM-SWITCH for remotely rebooting servers that also has a Radio Control built in so you can Reboot the server by GSM-or Radio and the GSM-SWITCH has a Battery Back Up and will send you a text alert if the Main Power Supply goes down.
    The GSM-Switch is a new product and comes with its own power supply

    Would it not be better to replace the router or repair the cause of hte lock ups?

    Here is a really simple rebooter just plug it into a mains outlet, then plug the router into it, to reboot send it an SMS text message.

    I've got one of those... a supplier gave it to me to test and Ive been trying to find a use for it?

    The immediate problem I found was trying to locate a SIM plan to make it economically viable.
    I'm still looking for a SMS SIM only plan if there is such a thing.

    It's a shame that power socket doesn't work with Three SIMs, otherwise you could have used Samba Mobile. To top up you simply watch adverts on their website.
