Yeah, but the ON command still wouldn’t get to the PDU because the router or switch is off. The PDU connects via IP. The PDU has the ability to execute a ‘reboot’ which is an OFF followed by an ON after a pre-determined time with all of that time logic being handled by the PDU, so it will still happen, even if it loses communications.

Is this plugin still working? I’m looking at getting one of these PDUs!

It should, what likely will not work is the plugin's ability to tracking the status of the outlet if turned on/off outside of Indigo (i.e. turned On/Off via the PDU's web portal).

Thanks for replying. That in itself isn’t an issue as I’d likely always control it via indigo, but it’s worth knowing! I’ll add it to my potentials list!

Any plans to update this for Python 3 before indigo drops support for the old ones? It’s a handy plugin!

The short answer is, I'm gonna have to because still use this with a APC AP9211 MasterSwitch PDU.

Once I figure out how to get it working for me under Python 3, I will figure out how share a version for anyone who wants it.

Re: APC Power Distribution Unit (PDU) Plugin Added

Awesome! I was also wondering would it be possible to add functionality to define the action it sends to the PDU when you turn it off (as in instead of just being a straight off, I could set one device to be an immediate restart or one to be a delayed off!)

I will definitely look at doing that.

The plugin should be able to do what you're asking, request a Delayed On, Delayed Off, Immediate Reboot, or a Delayed Reboot.

You'd have to define which of those actions you want in an Action Group and call that group, but the functionality will be there.
