New Thermaltake Titanium power supplies that include app to remote shut down and restart (1500w version will be for sale soon).  Price will probably turn many away, but...

PATENTED??? How the hell did something as common as RGB modulation of LED's in a fan or whatever get a patent???  Roll Eyes

The remote feature sounds nice. Personally, I think it is just one more component to worry about failing.

They already make PDUs that do this very same thing. I guess it really depends on your needs.

I don't know about their remote rebooting feature - they make it SOUND like how a PDU works, but really if you look at their example steps, they're just running some sort of notification app in your OS, similar to how you hook your computer to you UPS.  Then if some error condition happens, it just contacts their mothership, and then you should shut it down remotely.

Really, this is something you could have done already - except there wasn't an easy way to detect if the fan died in the PSU - but I've built literally hundreds of systems and don't think I've ever had a PSU fan fail.

And it only let's you turn it off - not turn it back on.  So once again, nothing that your computer couldn't already do - they just added some app to your system to let you remote shutdown... Yawn.  I'll stick with server grade PSU's and breakout boards, much higher quality at a much lower price.

The video shows a shut down and reboot button on the app?

I'm not sure what your question is - Windows already lets you reboot and shutdown, there's no magic to that.  It's literally just their app sending the command - it's not something special about their PSU.  If you could remote power ON the device, then that would be much more interesting, but also much more difficult. 

In the PDU model, you could configure the system to auto-start on power loss, and you can toggle the power on and off to the outlet (assuming it's a managed PDU).  This is radically different than what they're offering - it's literally just an app to allow you to remote reboot or shutdown your machine.  You could do that using TeamViewer or any number of other things...

Now they've also added monitoring of the PSU state, like voltage levels, fan speed, temps - and those are interesting, but at least in my experience I've never had a fan fail, and if I'm pushing a PSU, I'm not going to use some consumer grade one... So these are of marginal value (at least to my mind).

Well if you only have 120 volts it is good.

Last year newegg sent me a smart plug.  That let me power off and on.

Nice item even let me use 240 volts.

But it got hot to the touch so I rated it with three stars.

My pdus allow off and power on from a pc remotely .
