External hardware power-cycle

External hardware power-cycle

I have a couple of servers running at home (for personal use) that are inaccessible to me when I'm out on the road and the cable-modem goes wrong. Whilst it is rare, from time to time it is necessary for me to power-cycle the modem.

"I think I have found the solution to my problem, a Phidget kit that provides 4 AC switches controlled by a simple USB interface.

PhidgetInterfaceKit 0/0/4

Minimal assembly required to get what I want... more even!"

If you want a horribly low tech approach just get one of those mains timer switches and use it to restart the modem every day at 3am.
