WiFi IP Power Control over the Internet

Power Control

The Power Control menu allows you to control the power status of the individual ports on your RPS-NODE-9258-WiFi.

Power No: The individual status of the power ports on the rear of the unit.
Name: You can select a NAME for each of the individual power ports. Use the Power Control Naming Panel on the lover part of this page to rename the individual ports.
Controls: Allows you to set the power status of each of the individual ports.
Timer: Timer allows for a delay time in seconds before the desired action is performed. If you wanted to power up/down with a delay, you can place your delay value into the timer section. This also allows you to reboot a device such as a router where you will lose the connection to the RPS-NODE-9258-WiFi unit during the power cycle, but regain access once the router reboots.
Alarm: The alarm section allows the RPS-NODE-9258-WiFi to notify you when an outlet has been turned on or off. Yyou can be notified either by E-mail or by a beeping sound.
Status: The status column tells you whether the power is ON or OFF for the individual ports.
Recycle Power: Allows you to set the minutes and seconds to power an individual port OFF then On. Select the corresponding P button for the port you wish to recycle.
Device Startup Default Value: Sets the default power setting ( ON / OFF ) for each individual port. The System Startup Beeper can also be enable/disabled. If you disable the default value, the device will startup with the last power settings enabled.

Scheduler Settings
The RPS-NODE-9258-WiFi allows you to schedule power ON / OFF events based on the Date, Time and Port. This section also allows you to enable and disable ping events. Click the ADD button to configure a schedule. Click SUBMIT to add the schedule to the manifest.
Ping Settings
The Ping menu allows the RPS-NODE-9258-WiFi to monitor the network connectivity of other devices by sending a ping. If the device does not respond to the ping signal, the RPS-NODE-9258-WiFi will automatically turn ON, OFF or RESET the designated individual power port depending on your selected settings.
The Ping Settings consist of:
Name: This section shows the name of the device
Enable / Disable: This section allows you to disable or enable the ping function
Host Name / IP Address: Enter the host name or the IP Address of the device that you need to ping.
Ping Failures: This is the number of Ping failures to occur simultaneous before the RPS-NODE-9258-WiFi activates the selection action.
Action: Once the number of ping failures is reached, this action will be performed. Selections allow for Power ON, Power OFF, Power RESET. You can also have the RPS unit Continue testing after the designated amount of delay time or just stop ping testing.
Global Setting Sub-Menu: Allows you to set the Ping Interval (Example: 45 Seconds) and Ping Echo Wait (Example: 2000 Milliseconds ). The Ping Echo Wait is the time the RPS-NODE-9258-WiFi will wait for the return echo from the tested device.
Auto-Self-Ping: Connectivity Check. Tests the connection status of the device to your local wireless network, if no connection is found the RPS-NODE-9258-WiFi will make a beeping sound to notify you that the device has lost connection. You can Enable or Disable this self check functionality in the table.
