After having read some reviews which state that Digital Loggers have been responsive to suggestions and their new version is improved over the last, I bought two of the Digital Loggers Web Switches off Amazon. Overall I'm pretty impressed. Before buying them I looked around for an iphone app,, and there is an app in the iTunes and Android stores called Remote Outlet, https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/remote- ... 35645?mt=8
. It is $1.99 and well worth it. I had to set up a dynamic DNS account (finally), and chose http://www.freedns.afraid.org
, based on it being free (naturally) as well as nag-free and lots of great reviews.
After getting the Airport router port configuration right, the switches are now remote accessible via the app. I had a trip out of town a few months ago and had the Indigo Mini lock up, as well as having the iMac I run my cameras on lock up while i was figuring out their configuration, so I think this will do the trick for reboots. Another nice feature is auto ping and auto reboot of the cable modem and Airport router. With this setup I'm thinking it should be pretty bulletproof when traveling. Furthermore, as they allowed me to repurpose some insteon appliance links I'd been using for power control for these devices, I have a little savings....
While not really germane to the switch, they have a cute video for their autobooting POE switch here: http://www.digital-loggers.com/poe24.html
