WebSwitch™ is designed for server room applications. Connect 1 or 2 servers (or communication devices such as modems, routers, etc.) to WebSwitch's rear outlets and use WebSwitch to reboot the devices
Using a web browser you can reboot your devices from anywhere in the world. You can also configure WebSwitch to automatically reboot one or both of the devices when network communications fail or when the devices fail to respond to ping requests. WebSwitch Plus has additional features such as temperature monitoring and dry contact inputs for server room monitoring.
WebSwitch is highly configurable. You can specify the time between ping requests, the time between unsuccessful ping requests, how many times a ping request is sent before rebooting the device, and the time before the first ping is sent after startup.
WebSwitch and WebSwitch Plus can be set up and monitored using a standard web browser on your computer or smartphone, and they do not require any cloud services or reoccurring fees.
Server Auto & Remote Reboot
In this example, a server is plugged into one of the WebSwitch Plus' AC outlets. The WebSwitch Plus is configured, by the user, to ping the server every 120 seconds to ensure it is running properly.
If the ping request fails, WebSwitch is configured to then send out another ping request after 10 seconds and if that request also fails, it will automatically reboot the server and internally log the event. It can also send out an email and text alert to an IT tech and administrator.
Monitor Server Temperature
WebSwitch Plus also monitors the server's temperature. If the temperature exceeds a user-specified threshold, it logs the event and sends an email/text alert to the appropriate personnel.
