The problem I’m confronted with is that my family has a small house out-of-town but the internet occasionally drops. When it does the ISPs modem/router does not come back online. The modem/router is on a surge protector but I suppose it’s possible that we’re maybe having brown-outs while we’re gone that cause it to malfunction. To make things better, when I call the ISP they say “You’ll need to power cycle it. We cannot do anything for you until you do that.”
My question is, does anyone know of a possible solution that would allow a local automation to power cycle an outlet/switch if it cannot connect to the internet?
I was wondering if maybe I could achieve something like this with a Sonoff basic but I’m not sure how complex you can get with automations on the the Sonoff itself.
This is driving me nuts. It renders my remote monitoring and surveillance useless when this happens and it’s multiple hours away.
