Which Aviosys power switches support recycling power on network failure?
Many of the Aviosys models have an auto ping feature. The units are able to continuously ping an external ip address of your choosing. If one or more pings fail, then you can specify which port you want to have the power recycled ie switched off then on again. The port you choose should be the power port of your broadband router.
Does the IP9258UK connect to the network using RJ45 or wireless?
The IP9258UK connects to the network using an RJ45 connector only. It does not support wireless.
Will the IP9255 device power cycle on ping fail?

The maximum power load is 6 Amps per socket, with a maximum of 10 Amps for the whole unit.

We can supply the Aviosys IP Power 9258S and 9258SP units with either UK or EU plugs. We also have a small number of US plugs if required. The price is the same for all plug types.
We are looking for a product like the Net Power 8800, but instead of USB, we require it to plug into our network?
Yes. The closest model to the Net Power 8800 supporting an ethernet network is the IP9255 and the IP9255PRO.
Can the Aviosys IP Power 9258S be programmed to switch an outlet on/off many times in a single day (for example, once every 3 hours)?
The IP9258S can be programmed with only one event (ie on and off) per port per 24 hour period. this can be repeated every day or set by day but not many times in the same day. Of course, this can be done 'manually' form a remote location however.
Is it possible to use the Aviosys IP Power IP9258SP to turn off/on a dsl router once internet connectivity is lost?
Yes. Simply configure the IP address for the IP Power 9258SP to ping, the number of consecutive pings that need to fail and the power port into which the router is connected to the unit. Then when the remote IP address fails to respond to the number of consecutive pings you have specified it will stop and then start the power to your broadband router.
If I buy more than 1 IP power switch for different points in the house, will the browser be able to distinguish between the different units?
Yes. You would set up each IP Power Switch with a unique IP address on your home network. You can then log into whichever unit you want to view by typing in its IP address into your browser.
Can the individual sockets be labelled on the Aviosys IP Power 9258S within the web interface?
Yes, you can label individual sockets with meaningful names. In the web interface there is a box in which you can type your own memorable labels for each socket.
Can I remotely control the Aviosys IP9258S on my home broadband network?
The power to the PC can be controlled remotely by the Aviosys IP9258SP, but only if the PC is connected directly into one of the ports on the power switch itself. In addition, the IP address of the power switch must also be accessible remotely either using the port forwarding feature on your broadband router or by using fixed IP address given to you by your ISP.
Does the Aviosys IP Power IP9820 have a CLI to control it?
All network enabled Aviosys models support HTTP based commands so can be controlled using command line tools like wget or curl.
