Hi all

I am looking for a mains multiple socket which can be access via a network, so that if I want I can send a command to reset the power supply. What i intend to accomplish is there will be devices connected to this mains socket, and I want to have the functionality to be able to reset this mains socket, in turn power resetting all the devices connected to it.

Looking for some suggestions guys.

Cheers

Have you thought about Wakeup on Lan functionality (I assume you're talking about computer kit)? Have a look on the internet and see if that's what you're after.

A Google search for 'network controlled power strip' will bring up a number of vendors that offer the sort of device I think you're looking for

Found quite a few option. Thanks bishop. This will help in my proposal for some of my customers. I need to put a few devices on these network enabled power switches.
Thanks for the guidance Bishop.

No problem.
It amazes me these things aren't much more ubiqutous; I've proposed them several times but they usually get knocked back by the bean-counters as 'frills'. However when you're in the middle of a major incident which you could resolve simply by remotely power-cycling the box then they're worth their weight in gold
