MSNswitch is designed to automatically power-cycle any device when internet connectivity is lost. This is useful if your broadband / cable / DSL connection drops, and all you need to do is reset the router to re-gain connectivity.
MSNswitch does this automatically. It can reset the router for you, without anyone having to visit the location and manually doing it.
To set up, all you have to do is;

MSNswitch will automatically ping five different preset target, which can be changed, and if they are unreachable, MSNswitch will power-cycle the power outlets.
Main use for MSNswitch includes:
  • Home users who have to manually power-cycle their router to re-gain internet connectivity.
  • Resetting unresponsive device (for instance IP camera or NAS servers) which otherwise will be inaccessible from remote.
  • IT Professionals who need to automatically or remotely reset devices.
  • Preventing your connection from timing out or going dormant.
  • Having devices on an automatic power schedule [Ex: Turn on at 9am & turn off at 5pm].
While the main feature is very simple (and will be the only feature most customers will use), the device does have some more advanced features:
  • Web Interface - Allows you to monitor status, view logs, and change advanced settings & configurations via web browser. Easy access in LAN by typing //MSNswitch.
  • Power Scheduling - Up to 20 schedules may be set to turn power on/off to specific ports at specified times.
  • Timed Power-Cycling - Automatically power cycle power ever X mins (1-1440).
  • Event Logs - To keep track of when the unit had to reset power etc.
  • Dynamic DNS Support & Remote Admin - Allows customers to login via the web to access controls, view logs, and remotely turn on/off power to specific ports or reset power.
  • MSN Messenger Support - Sends you notifications and allows you to issue commands to check the status, as well as turn on/off power or power-cycle certain ports via MSN Messenger. (AIM & Yahoo support coming soon!)
  • Advanced Network Configuration - Allows you to setup to obtain a static IP address and use different DNS servers, and change HTTP web admin interface port.
  • Save/Restore Configuration - Allows you to save your configuration, and easily restore the configuration. Good for customers who are purchasing multiple units, as they can create a configuration file and apply it to all of their units instead of manually configuring each unit.
