Remotely Reboot Modem
« on: April 24, 2018, 09:51:48 AM »
I have a Customer that wants to be able to Reboot their Modem, should it need. Can Do with Landline and a Viking RC-2. However, they have Comcast with VOIP. He feels that is OK, as Phone Usually? keeps working. I would like to be able to do if VOIP was out as well, I called Alarm Relay to see If any Cellular Units allow controlling a contact Remotely, They Say No. Only way left I feel is have a Photodetector over the Online Indicator, and if it goes out, small circuit will remove power for 30? seconds, then restore power.
Any other Ideas or Input?

I had a client with equipment that needed the occasional reboot.  so I bought a cheap electronic timer, programmed it to remove power for 1 minute every day at 11PM and that was the end of it - if the device operates from a low voltage supply simply wire the timer to a relay and make it TURN ON for 1 minute every day and use the NC terminals to switch the power.
Able1 is a twit.  Correction, Twit is too mild a term.
