In today’s home office and remote branch office sites, remote power control is becoming more and more popular. Products like the DataProbe iBoot offer the ability to remotely control power over the internet to one or more outlets. With secure password protected access, IT professionals can perform a remote reboot of hung systems, control on-off power cycles, and in some cases, employ automatic reboot functionality to restart systems in the event of a power failure.


Besides being great for home offices, remote power switches are finding a valued place controlling the power to vending machines, ATM systems, information kiosks, digital signage systems, and even remotely controlling power for security and alarm systems. The remote power switch is an excellent way to reduce downtime, outages, and losses from unexpected power failures and ensure remote IT equipment is available for customer use.
