Digital Loggers IP Power - v 7.0.1
How much time and money have you wasted on service calls only to find that the problem was that something needed rebooting?
Wouldn't you like to be able to do this remotely? Do you wish there was a way of ensuring your essential IP equipment like your router/modem or master controller was alive? How about rebooting them automatically if they weren't?
Now the driver will allow you to monitor and reboot the master Control4 controller too!
You will save the cost of this integration in the first service call you don't have to make.
Digital Loggers IP switches include a network monitoring 'ping' function. This allows them to automatically check the health of any device on the network and silently reboot it if it fails.
There are wall mount, rack mount, vertical PDU and even DIN rail versions to suit every job and budget. Purchase the hardware from www.digital-loggers.com and the driver here from Extra Vegetables.
Use the DIN rail version for inexpensive control of 8 blinds, curtains or heating zones!
Also available as part of the Monitoring Suite with our network monitoring and ping drivers

Extra Vegetables have written drivers for the Digital Loggers Inc range of IP power switches. These allow you to remotely monitor and control the power of AV and other equipment at your customer's sites. The switches have the following features and benefits:
Remotely reboot anything from anywhere
Using Control4's Remote Director feature in Composer you can connect to your customer's site and switch equipment off and on. No need to send an engineer in the first instance. If it fixes the problem everyone wins.
Automatically Reboot device that have crashed.
Rebooting remotely is good, but automatically rebooting anything that has crashed is even better! The modem, router, media player or the Control4 controller - anything that has an Ethernet connection. If you've powered them from the switch they can be monitored. If they crash this will be detected - and it will be rebooted AUTOMATICALLY. YES this works even if the master Control4 controller has crashed! No 'phone calls from angry customers - just more reliable systems.
Save Heat and Power Make a GREEN sale to your customers.
Use the power switch to switch off gear when the family leaves the home. They save on electricity costs, you have a cooler rack and a more reliable system.
Save Time and Money
Every year custom install companies loose many precious hours of service time just rebooting equipment. Customers don't like being billed for these call-outs and you have better things to do. These switches will improve your life!
Auto Schedule Reboots.
We all know that cable boxes are less likely to crash if you reboot them regularly. So using Control4 you can schedule a regular reboot, first checking that the receiver is not in use.
Controlled Power Shutdown with UPS.
If you have an APC UPS and our APC driver you can combine this to provide a controlled shutdown of the system. Keep the controller alive for longer. We offer a special priced bundle including the power switch and UPs driver.
This driver is an independent commercial release by Extra Vegetables Ltd. It is not authorized or supported either by Control4 or Digital Loggers. Extra Vegetables fully support the driver through its authorized dealer network.
